28 DAYS TO 2018 KICKOFF: Spencer Misko

In which BracketCat counts down the 28th day until the 2018 kickoff with a profile of tight end Spencer Misko.

From the highlights I’ve seen, Oklahoma State’s voluntary loss of Spencer Misko is Kansas State’s gain. He might not quite follow in the footsteps of former tight end Zach Trujillo (85), however...

Spencer Cole Misko (b. June 3, 1998) is a big tight end from who used a redshirt season to develop in 2017. He’ll compete for playing time on both offense and special teams in 2018.

Although he is listed primarily as a tight end, all of Misko’s highlights from Keller High School are of him playing defensive end — which seems to be his stronger position — for the Indians under head coach Carl Stralow. We’ll see how the tight end experiment works...

Misko earned honorable mention all-state honors from the Texas Associated Press Sports Editors as a defensive lineman, while he was a three-time all-district honoree.

He also earned All-Midlands Region honors from PrepStar, totaled 117 career tackles to go along with six sacks, and lettered in basketball.

Misko practically fell into our lap after giving a verbal commitment to Oklahoma State two years ago, only to see the Cowboys rescind the offer that October. He then re-opened his recruitment and attracted much interest, including a visit to Baylor, but chose K-State.

He was the very first to sign with the Cats on National Signing Day. We got a good one!
