Not a ton of stuff today, but there is some recruiting news amidst some random silliness.

First, let’s direct you to BracketCat’s latest offerings, as on Saturday he profiled #77, offensive lineman Nick Kaltmeyer, and gave another lineman, Josh Rivas, his turn at #76 on Sunday.

From Zach Duncan at the Wichita Falls Times Record: former Henrietta (Tex.) linebacker Cody Fletcher, late of Tyler (Tex.) Junior College, is headed to Kansas State Wildcats as a late signee for this upcoming season. Fletcher notched 104 tackles for Tyler last season, and joins the Cats with three years of eligibility remaining.

Sporting News ranked all 130 Division I FBS coaches, and there’s a guy you might recognize sitting in the top 15%.

Basketball

Here’s a story from Gary Bedore at the Star about a bunch of Kansas Jayhawks basketball alumni playing softball. Why do we care? Because Wesley Iwundu and Jordan Henriquez pitched in as well for Frank Mason’s charity event. The game raised funds for Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City and the National Youth Foundation.

Riley Gates at GPC offers up a freebie regarding the commitment of Columbia (Mo.) Hickman forward Emma Chapman. The 6’3” Chapman, who’ll be a senior this fall, decided on K-State after a pair of visits.

Other

Right now, only one university in the United States offers a degree in wildlife enterprise management. (You get one guess.) In the fall of 2019, that number will double, as Olivia Stump reports for the AP (via WKRG in Mobile, Ala.) that Auburn is going to begin offering the degree as well.
