Kansas State, for the third consecutive season, is hosting a spring quarterback battle.
For now, it looks like the order is shaking out.
"That's the pecking order," Snyder said, according to the Kansas City Star.
Klein worked mostly as a runner last season, running 76 times for 432 yards and six scores. He threw just 18 passes in 10 appearances, completing 11 for for 138 yards, a touchdown and no interceptions.
He's already proven himself as a runner and more than proficient in the zone-read game. Klein was at the helm when the Wildcats ran up a 39-0 lead over Texas this past season, following up that 127-yard rushing performance with 141 yards in a loss to Missouri the following week.
For Klein, the task is proving he can be a reliable passer. It's hard to see him not improving as a junior in 2011, but he'll need to be a lot better if the Wildcats are going to be a threat to more than a few teams in the Big 12.
"They’re all battling, and the battle will continue," Snyder said.
