As the 2019 season inches closer, Mississippi State has upgraded offensively with the addition of Zuber, a versatile wideout who can play in the slot or along the sidelines.

Zuber, who boasts a combination of speed and athleticism, adds experience with an impressive four-year resume that includes 127 receptions for 1,321 yards, having found the end zone 11 times in his K-State career. In addition, Zuber averaged 10.4 yards per catch as a Wildcat. He stands at 6 feet tall but has the hops to leap for any ball. Furthermore, Zuber is not afraid and lethal in the open field.

In today’s game, speed is king. Look for Zuber to be mostly in the slot but do not be surprised if coach Joe Moorhead inserts him on the outside. Having played in the Big 12, Zuber is no stranger to speed. Moreover, the Bulldogs will have a human joystick at their disposal. Zuber can shed off any tackler, sprint down the field, and is a pure athlete.

Along with his wide array of skills, Zuber’s leadership will be key this year. Even beyond his fellow wideouts, Zuber’s energy should be infectious amongst teammates, bettering their confidence. That being said, the SEC is a different beast on defense and Zuber will need to make the necessary adjustments to match up.

He is a playmaker, plain and simple. Look for Zuber to stretch the filed and cover a lot of ground. Moorhead should use him in a multitude of schemes. Though Zuber will be a one and done with the Bulldogs in his last year college football eligibility, expect him to make the most of it in Starkville.
