Sams granted release from K-State

MANHATTAN, Kan. - Kansas State Athletics Director John Currie announced today that quarterback/wide receiver Daniel Sams has been granted a conditional release from his scholarship by the university.

"Daniel requested to be able to continue his playing career at an FCS institution so that he could be closer to some of his aging family members," Currie said. "We appreciate his contributions and wish him the best."

Sams, who just completed his redshirt sophomore season for the Wildcats, will be permitted to contact FCS institutions near his hometown of Slidell, Louisiana, with the exception of Stephen F. Austin, a 2014 Wildcat opponent, Currie said. With the release, under standard NCAA rules, Sams will be eligible to compete and receive financial aid immediately upon enrollment at an FCS institution.

"I am thankful to Coach Snyder for the opportunity I have had here at K-State and also the fans for being so supportive," Sams said. "I have become a better teammate, football player and more importantly a better person during my time at K-State, and I want to wish my teammates and coaches nothing but the best next season."
