Kansas State junior QB Jake Waters "has a chance to showcase his diverse skills" on Thursday night against Auburn, wrote Sports Illustrated's Pete Thamel and Thayer Evans.
"Waters is the classic Bill Snyder recruit -- and undervalued junior college star that few other high-profile schools wanted," wrote SI's Inside Read duo. "As so often happens under Snyder, he’s emerged as a star." KSU would take a big step towards the inaugural college football playoff if it can pull off an upset against the Tigers. "We have everything," Waters said. "We can go do the spread game, the zone reads, throw the attachments, or we can go put two tight ends, two running backs in there and pound it on the ground. It’s a complicated offense." CBS Sports' Dane Brugler compared Waters to ex-Gamecocks QB Connor Shaw over the summer: "Similar to Connor Shaw a year ago, Waters' skill-set doesn't scream NFL quarterback, but with a productive and winning senior season, he will earn a shot to make a pro roster."

Kansas State junior QB Jake Waters compares to ex-Gamecocks QB Connor Shaw, according to CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.

"Similar to Connor Shaw a year ago, Waters' skill-set doesn't scream NFL quarterback, but with a productive and winning senior season, he will earn a shot to make a pro roster," Brugler wrote. Like Shaw, Waters lacks ideal height and size for the next level. The Kansas State prospect is a versatile athlete and a tough competitor who can come up big in clutch moments. Waters enters the 2014 season with the top career passing efficiency rating (156.8)in school history and ranks fifth in passing yards per game (189.9).
