Daniel Sams’ position switch won’t stick. At least not at Kansas State. 

Sams announced his plans to transfer from the Wildcats on Monday night. 

The rising junior spelled Collin Klein in 2012 and rushed for 235 yards and three touchdowns, breaking the school’s rushing record for freshman quarterbacks. 

He competed with Jake Waters for the starting job in 2013 and played in all 13 games, rushing for 807 yards and 11 touchdowns. He also completed 38-of-53 passes for 452 yards and four touchdowns. 

His 1,042 career rushing yards are fourth-most in school history for quarterbacks. 

This spring, he moved to receiver, ceding to Waters, who moved to full-time starting quarterback.
