Yesterday was signing day for College Football. JT VanGilder brought the heat with two different signing day stories. The first was a run down of all commits Kansas State brought into the 2019 class.
The second was a look at the key traits the K-State coaching staff looked for in the class: Speed.
Finally, Drew Schnieder finished the day at Bring on the Cats with an overall breakdown of the players in the 2019 class.
We’ll start with football (obviously). Chris Klieman “Likes what we did” during the recruiting period, espcially given the shortened recruiting time he and the other coaches were working under. (Ryan Black, Manhattan Mercury)
In a departure from Bill Snyder, Chris Klieman expects all of the freshman to play in at least the four game they are able without losing their red-shirt eligibility. He’s also praising recruits prior to them setting foot on campus calling Joshua Youngblood the steal of the class. (Kellis Robinett, Wichita Eagle)
New defensive coordinator Scottie Hazelton brings more than just an impressive beard to Kansas State football. He brings a new edge and aggression to the defense even if his philosophy is similar to previous D coordinators (stop the run and defend the big play). (Kellis Robinett, Wichita Eagle)
Kansas State has owned Kansas this week. The ladies went into the old barn in Lawrence and got revenge on an earlier season loss beating the Jayhawks, 72-62 in overtime. (Justin Toscano, Manhattan Mercury)
Midway through the Big 12 season and a team from Kansas finds itself alone atop the standings. It’s just not the team anyone predicted. With a Baylor loss last night to Texas, the Wildcats hold sole possession of the Big 12 conference. (Kellis Robinett, Wichita Eagle)
