SLATE: Quiet day for Kansas State, but not for Villanova and Michigan

New, 104 comments

Women’s golf in action, but not much else to report from the homefront.

DID YOU KNOW: Villanova didn’t ONLY score on threes Saturday night. It just felt that way.

There’s very little to report to you, dearest readers, regarding the ongoing pursuits of your favorite Wildcats in the world.

Of course, another set of Wildcats are angling for yet another national championship this evening. We’ll have more on that later in the morning with your How to Watch post for, as to which it’s officially referred, the 2018 NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Championship Game.

Meanwhile, your very light package of K-State news:

Golf

As noted by double-ought yesterday in the Slate, the women are at the Maridoe Golf Club in Carrollton, Texas, for the North Texas-hosted Bruzzy Challenge this morning. First flight is 8:30am, and the Wildcats will be up against a raft of Power Five challengers including Boston College, Iowa, Missouri, Texas A&M, and Texas Tech.

Football

CBS Sports has updated some of their pre-draft player blurbs, so you can check out what they have to say about Byron Pringle and Will Geary, as well as D.J. Reed. The writeups don’t actually reference CBS’s draft projections, so we’ll include that info here.

Reed appears set to continue K-State’s Big 12-leading draft streak, as he’s the 86th-ranked prospect and tenth among cornerbacks.

Geary has a pretty lengthy writeup, and he’s projected to outperform his draft status. Geary does in fact land narrowly within the projected draft board, as the 194th-ranked prospect overall and the 17th-ranked defensive tackle.

Pringle’s blurb is short, and somehow characterizes him as someone who’s not a big threat to gain yards after the catch. Pringle may end up on the outside looking in, as he’s at 228 overall and 34th among receivers.

Trent Tanking is the 14th-rated inside linebacker, and 272nd overall. There’s no writeup on him, and you can probably expect his draft ceiling to be a free-agent deal.
