LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - Nick Harwell had to wait an entire season before getting on the field at Kansas.
For Nigel King, the wait will be just a few weeks.
Together, the two wide receivers hope to provide a potent 1-2 punch for a passing offense that was among the worst in major college football last season, and that will be counted on more than expected after the Jayhawks lost their top two running backs to season-ending injuries.
Harwell spent last season on the practice squad after arriving from Miami of Ohio, forced to redshirt due to NCAA rules. King graduated from Maryland at the end of the summer and decided to use his final two years of eligibility with the Jayhawks.
The Jayhawks open the season Sept. 6 against Southeast Missouri State.
