Wildcats landed 26 total players on signing day

Bill Synder lands a solid recruiting class on national signing day for his Kansas State Wildcat team. Wildcats sign 26 total players, seven players who are already at Kansas State taking a garyshirt last year, 13 high school players and six JUCO transfers.

Wildcats highest rated recruit is four-star wide receiver out of Navarro Junior College, Marquez Clark. Kansas State was also able to snatch a quarterback away from Nebraska, that being Tavarius Bender. Other notable players in the Wildcat recruiting class include: fullback Glenn Gronkowski, who is the youngest brother of Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski; also junior college safety, Ken Gainous out of Trinity Valley Community College.
