12/09/2012 - 2012 ALL-BIG 12 HONORABLE MENTION (MEDIA): Tight end: Braden Wilson, Kansas State, has been selected Honorable Mention All-Big 12 Conference (Media selection) for the 2012 college football season. - Kansas State football

08/03/2012 - The Wildcats return 17 starters, the most since 2006, and coaches project a more versatile offense than they had in 2011, when Kansas State passed 290 times and ran 606. Balance is nice, but productive is better. Anything to keep the opponent's offense off the field. "If we can get more first downs . now they're going to have the ball even less, so that's one of our emphases," offensive coordinator Dana Dimel said, "and we're going to try to do that by being more diverse with what we do on offense, try to expound on our passing game, basically." That more versatile offense starts with more passing by Klein, but it also includes fullback Braden Wilson, who Dimel says is a lock for the NFL because of the matchups and angles he allows his team to create, and wide receiver Tyler Lockett, whom many expect to be one of the best in the Big 12 coming back from injury. "It's a huge boost," Dimel said. "Our last time that we had Tyler and Chris (Harper) was the Oklahoma State game, and we showed our diversity there when we had both those guys at full cylinder, so we're feeling like if we get both those guys back healthy, we can kind of be that balanced of a team where we ran the ball well and threw the ball well." Dimel anticipates using John Hubert - who rushed for 970 yards in 2011 - about the same amount while using other backs to provide different looks. All of this will take some of the load off Klein, who rushed for 1,141 yards last season. - AP Sports
