Konner Drew Fox (b. Sept. 14, 2000) is a promising young tight end prospect from Texas who redshirted during the 2019 season and projects as a likely scout team member in 2020.

He attended Reagan High School in San Antonio, Texas, where he lettered two years for the Rattlers under head coach Lyndon Hamilton.

Fox was rated as the 25th-best tight end (or H-back) prospect in the Class of 2019 by ESPN, while he ranked 30th among all tight ends by 247Sports. Most recruiting services had him rated as a three-star prospect.

Fox earned all-district honors as both a junior and senior, and also was named to both the San Antonio All-VYPE team and The San Antonio-Express News All-Area team in 2018.

He totaled 1,478 receiving yards and 22 touchdowns during his junior and senior seasons, helping Reagan to earn 9-3 records both seasons, and he also lettered in basketball.

Fox chose K-State over offers from Army, Connecticut, Duke, Georgia State, Louisiana, Louisiana Tech, North Texas, Purdue, SMU, Texas State, Tulane, UTEP and UTSA, as well as interest from Oklahoma. His lead recruiter was former tight ends coach Zach Hanson.
