In which BracketCat counts down the 64th day until the 2019 kickoff with a profile of Kansas State offensive lineman Trevor Stange.

#71 Dalton Risner
K-State literally has huge shoes to fill after the graduation of second-round NFL Draft pick Dalton Risner (71). Enter true freshman Trevor Stange. (P.S. I still say Risner scored on this play, penalty be damned. Darn Big 12 buzzkill refs...)

Trevor Reid Stange (b. July 10, 2000) is a K-State legacy who was one of the most exciting prospects in the recruiting Class of 2019. Although he probably will redshirt under the new coaching regime, he does bring the potential to perhaps see some playing time at guard.

A four-year starter under head coach Mike DeWitt at Coppell (Texas) High School, Stange was rated the 68th-best offensive guard nationally in the Class of 2019 by ESPN.

He also was ranked as the No. 71 offensive guard in the country and No. 218 overall prospect in the state, per 247Sports Composite.

Stange earned all-district honors all four seasons for the Cowboys and was selected to play in International Bowl X at AT&T Stadium in January.

A high school teammate of current K-State punter Bernardo Rodriguez, he also completed in basketball and shot put as a prep athlete. After Cooper Beebe, he was our second signee.

The three-star prospect picked K-State over offers from Air Force, Cornell, Harvard, Houston, Minnesota, New Mexico State, North Texas, Princeton, SMU, Syracuse, Texas Tech, Tulane and Tulsa.

Stange also drew preliminary interest from a wide variety of Division I programs, including Boston College, California, Colorado, Columbia, Purdue, Rice, Texas, Texas A&M and UTSA.

Sadly, his primary recruiter was Charlie Dickey, a man who never will be his position coach.

Stange’s father, Russ, was an offensive lineman at K-State in 1987 and 1988 after transferring from Fullerton Community College. He honored this history when announcing his college choice with a tweet featuring a baby picture of himself with his dad’s helmet, which is neat.
