As Kansas football’s running backs compete, watch for Torry Locklin


LAWRENCE — Kansas football coach Lance Leipold understands that Torry Locklin might not receive the same attention as others at times.

Locklin, a redshirt junior running back for the Jayhawks this fall, is laid-back, quiet and humble. There’s been a lot of talk around sophomore running back Devin Neal and the incoming transfers at the position as the 2022 opener has drawn closer. Locklin is also coming off an injury that cut his 2021 season short, what he would describe this week as a dislocated ankle.

But Leipold was adamant as well about Locklin that, “He’ll help us.” Leipold not that help will come in a number of different ways, because of the versatility — on offense and on special teams — the 6-foot-2 and 210-pound talent provides. And Monday, Leipold began to see what Locklin is capable of again as Locklin has continued to work his way back from that injury.
