Bruce Weber already had a start-studded 2020 recruiting class developed, but that got even better yesterday when Selton Miguel, a 4-star, 6’4” 195lb wing/small forward out of Flordia, gave his verbal pledge to the Wildcats. K-State beat Western Kentucky (who is no slouch on the basketball recruiting trail) and South Florida, among others for the Floridian’s services.
Chris Klieman’s program received some bad news yesterday, when RS-Freshman QB John Holcombe II announced that he was leaving the Wildcat program and entering the transfer portal immediately. This is a tough blow for the Wildcats, as Holcombe had seen action in three of the four Wildcats contests to start the season, including significant action in the second half against Oklahoma State at both QB and TE/WR. This transfer also highlights the new NCAA transfer and redshirt rules. Since Holcombe is transferring before the 5th game, he can use the rest of this season as his NCAA mandated redshirt-transfer season, and be immediately eligible next year for whatever team he chooses (as a RS Junior).
Speaking of missing four games, linebacker Cody Fletcher is finally practicing with the team again, but Coach Klieman still has no definitive timetable for his return, leaving the possibility of Fletcher sitting out the remainder of the season and applying for another season of eligibility. Fletcher’s update was just a part of the overall weekly press conference.
K-State Sports also posted their weekly “Wildcats in the NFL” update, of course highlighting Byron Pringle’s ridiculous pinball catch for the Chiefs.
