K-State fans have not seen anyone wearing No. 18 catch a pass since Andre McDonald (18). Eric Hommel appears to be an entirely different sort of receiver, though.

Disclaimer: As the 2020 football season still is “technically” scheduled to proceed as planned in Manhattan, with the recent delay of our season opener until Sept. 12 against Arkansas State, we will reset and continue this Countdown for just a little bit longer...

Eric Joseph Hommel (b. April 15, 1999) is a preferred walk-on wide receiver from Rock Canyon High School in Littleton, Colorado. He is majoring in business administration.

Hommel redshirted in 2017, suited up for White in the 2018 spring game and was the target of a lone incomplete pass from former K-State quarterback Hunter Hall.

He played in the UTSA game, but did not record any statistics in the 2018 season; nor did he see any game action in 2019, suggesting he likely will contribute mainly on the scout team.

Hommel played under head coach Brian Lamb at Rock Canyon, totaling 71 receptions for 899 yards and 12 touchdowns for the Jaguars during his prep career.

His best season came as a junior in 2015, when he hauled in 67 catches for 840 yards and 11 scores en route to all-conference honors. He also set the school record for receptions.
