LAS VEGAS — Kent State's star quarterback Dustin Crum didn't have to wait long to find out where he would start his NFL journey after the 2022 NFL Draft concluded Saturday night. 

3News' own Nick Camino broke the news that the 2021 MAC Player of the Year will head to the 2020 Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs as an undrafted free agent.

Crum played in parts of 5 seasons for the Golden Flashes completing 66.7% of his passes while throwing for 7,420 yards. He threw for 55 touchdowns compared to just 12 interceptions.

He led Kent State to their first bowl win in school history in 2019 defeating Utah State in the Frisco Bowl 51-41 and was named first team all Mid American Conference in 2020.

Crum joins a crowded QB room in Kansas City behind 2018 MVP Patrick Mahomes and veteran Chad Henne. The current KC depth chart also includes two second year QBs Anthony Gordon and Shane Buechele. 

In an interview with 3News' Nick Camino on April 18, 2022, Crum shared his wish to continue his football career in the NFL. He also spoke about his time with the Golden Flashes, his experience at the NFL combine and the head coach that helped him get to this point, Sean Lewis. You can see the interview here:
