The Kansas Jayhawks football program hasn’t been the greatest over the last few seasons. Actually, they have been downright pathetic. They have just lost two offensive lineman and now their future just got a lot more grim.
According to College Football Talk, first-year Kansas head coach, David Beaty announced that sophomore offensive linemen Junior Visinia and Joey Bloomfield would not be apart of the team this upcoming season. This is especially a big hit for the Jayhawks as Visinia started the final three games of his freshman season.
Bloomfield decided to retire from the sport of football, but will remain with the program in a yet-to-be-determined position. The reason for Visinia’s departure has not been revealed.
Visinia got most of the first team reps at right guard during the Jayhawks’ spring training camp. He was believe to be a starter along the offensive line for Kansas.
The offensive line was already overly thin for the Jayhawks and losing two starters this close to the start of the season is never easy to overcome. It looks like Beaty’s first year as a head coach at any school could be in for a rough start.
The Jayhawks open the season on September 5 when they host the South Dakota State Jackrabbits.
