Andrew Metzger (b. Sept. 27, 2004) is a young tight end from the Denver suburb of Aurora who is equally skilled at catching in traffic, blocking, and running routes and who plans on majoring in business administration. He is likely to redshirt in 2023 after missing this spring.
A three-year letter-winner under head coach Danny Filleman at Regis Jesuit High School, Metzger was rated the 34th-best tight end (Y position) nationally in the Class of 2023 by ESPN, while 247Sports views him as the eighth-best overall prospect in Colorado.
Metzger totaled 515 yards and eight touchdowns for the Raiders over his three-year varsity career, including a 334-yard, six-touchdown showing as a senior, and also played lacrosse.
He chose K-State over offers from Air Force, Boise State, Colorado (from which he decommitted), Duke, Eastern Michigan, Kansas, Miami (Ohio), Michigan State, Nebraska, Nevada, Ohio, Utah State, Washington State and Wyoming, plus interest from Iowa State.
Metzger’s father, Joe, played tight end at Ohio State University from 1988 to 1992.
