Travis Britz (b. Jan. 26, 1994) is a promising young defensive lineman whom we plucked out of the defective state of Missouri (you know, because they defected).

You can watch his highlights here.

Though rated only a two-star player by Rivals.com, he carries a 5.4 overall rating, the highest possible for his grade.

A 5.5 would have made him a three-star player, and most three-star players tend to have great success at K-State.

Rivals also rated him the No. 20 overall player in a state that had a bumper crop of talent last year. He was a 2011 first team all-state pick by the Missouri Coaches Association and Missouri Sports Writers Association.

A 2011 Kansas City Star All-Metro first-team pick, Britz recorded 70 tackles and seven sacks in 2011, collected 99 tackles and three sacks as a junior, and totaled 214 career tackles in three seasons overall.

Other accolades include being a two-time All-Missouri River Valley pick, and a MaxPrep second-team All-American and Missouri Class 4 Defensive MVP in 2011.

Those who think wrestling provides a great foundation for solid defensive line play (such as me) will be delighted to know Britz also placed fourth in the state in wrestling as a heavyweight in 2011.

I'm excited about this kid and think he has an outside chance to make an impact in 2012, given the current uncertainty at the two defensive tackle positions. But the team's growing deep enough that a redshirt looks likely.
