“I think he’s going to be a great one. And I think he realizes that he has ability, and he’s going to use that ability as best he can.”

Les Miles Head Coach, Kansas Jayhawks

“It’s like you can’t get into his head. He just has a reset button no matter what. If he messes up, reset to the next play. Makes a play? Forgets about it and moves on. He’s mechanical, he knows what he’s doing, and he’s confident in himself. That’s what you’ve got to do.”

Luke Grimm Kansas wide receiver

“I feel like he has no ceiling. I feel like he gets better every week. He’s a great guy and by the time he leaves here he’s going to be one of the best.”

Ricky Thomas Kansas defensive back

“Karon’s been playing with a lot of growth, a lot of development this year. We continue to depend on him to make big plays each and every game.”
