Big recruiting weekend for K-State Football

We’re in the hot and heavy recruiting season with only a few days remaining until National Signing Day 2017, and, like all schools, K-State is starting to ramp up recruitment to finish filling out the 2017 class.

And the last week has been a big one for the Wildcat recruiting staff.

It started last Monday, as 3-star linebacker Danny Walker (Wheaton, IL (Wheaton North)) committed to the Wildcats over come G5 and high-FCS offers.

Then, Saturday, a big announcement from the Wildcat-owned state of Texas, as 3-star safety Isaiah Stewart (DeSoto, TX (DeSoto)) chose K-State after flipping from Nevada and over a Colorado offer.

Then Sunday, the Andre Coleman-led Georgia pipeline funneled another Peach-stater to Manhattan. Joining fellow Georgians Josh Brown and Eli Huggins, 3-star defensive back Antonio Oliver (Grovetown, GA (Grovetown)) chose the Cats over offers from Tennessee, Wisconsin, Syracuse, Wake Forest, Indiana, and Kentucky.

But it wasn’t a clean sweep for the Wildcat staff, as 4-star safety Evan Fields (Oklahoma City, OK (Midwest City)), K-State’s clear number one target for the recruiting season, chose Arizona State over the Wildcats (and over 30 other offers) after the Cats had made his finalist list. This does re-open a big door for the potential return of JUCO safety Elijah Walker, as he will now be the staff’s primary, and sole, target for a safety with immediate potential to play.

There’s still more to come as we race into National Signing Day 2017, so be sure to stick to Bring on the Cats for all your coverage!
