Recruiting: Getting One From the Enemy Camp

Recruiting has really started to heat up lately...

The latest Wildcat football commitment is in, and this one comes from that barren wasteland known as Lawrence, KS.

Scott Frantz, a 3-star, 6'5" 285lb offense lineman from Lawrence Free State HS, announced his decision via Twitter earlier today:

According to his Rivals profile Frantz also holds offers from, among others, Missouri, Miami (FL), Iowa St., KU, and Purdue.

The commitment from 5th ranked player in the state* pulls K-State back ahead of KU in in-state recruits, and to do so with a guy from KU's own backyard has to hurt their ego some.

As a Junior at Free State, Frantz was 1st-Team All Sunflower League, and HM All-State.

ESPN's Insider scouting report ($) paints a picture of a tough, smart, and aggressive young man and indicates that he will be effective in both run and pass protection and has the potential to bypass a red-shirt and go right into the depth chart as a solid back-up:

Bottom Line

Frantz is a very physical run and pass blocker; if a red shirt year is not deemed necessary, he could provide depth at the tackle spot.

This marks another solid pick-up for the K-State coaching staff, who have now started a trend of making some early noise in recruiting, especially among the regional kids. Though, as with any commitment this time of year, we have a long wait to see if the staff can hang on to him, especially with pressure from bigger schools.

His Hudl highlights:

*As per Scout preseason rankings, who have him rated higher than Delton. Rivals lists him as #6, ESPN does not have him ranked in any way.
