NOTE: Kansas State has elected to advance players’ classification even though the 2020 season did not affect eligibility. Those who wish to take advantage of this extra year will be listed as a (“super”) senior again after their original eligibility would have been exhausted.

Goal No. 3: UNITY. Come together as never before.

Jaelon Carter Travis (b. Aug. 26, 2002) is a speedy, athletic wide receiver from Summit High School in Mansfield, Texas, who has a chance of seeing some playing time in 2021.

He redshirted and did not see game action during the pandemic-shortened 2020 season.

Travis prepped under head coach Channon Hall at Summit, where he caught 60 passes for 1,117 yards and 13 touchdowns over his junior and senior seasons. He ended his career with the Jaguars on a high note with 651 yards and eight scores on 33 receptions as a senior.

Travis earned all-district honors as both a junior and senior, also competed in basketball and track and field, and was a high school teammate of former K-State nickel back Will Jones II.

He picked K-State over an offer from Texas Southern, as well as interest from Abilene Christian, Colorado State, Northwestern State and Texas State.

Travis’ primary recruiter was K-State fullbacks/tight ends coach Jason Ray, his former position coach.
