Kansas State names Jesse Ertz as starting QB

|

Bill Snyder has found his man at the quarterback position.

Jon Parton, of the K-State Collegian is reporting that sources have informed him Jesse Ertz will be named the starter for the 2015-2016 season.

The competition was between Ertz, junior Joe Hubener, sophomore junior college transfer Jonathan Banks and true freshman Alex Delton.

Ertz had all along been considered the favorite to win the job, but Synder still held a competition throughout offseason camp.

The 6-foot-3 sophomore hails from Mediapolis, Iowa where he was one of the top quarterbacks to come out of the 2013 class. He was named the Iowa Gatorade Player of the year in 2012 after he broke the state record for career touchdowns.

Kansas State will open the year against South Dakota State on September 5th.
