Kansas State football’s momentum on the recruiting trail isn’t slowing down.
The Wildcats added a commitment from McPherson High athlete Cody Stufflebean on Sunday. It marks the fifth commitment for K-State’s 2020 class since Monday.
After thanking his family, coaches and other schools invested time recruiting him, Stufflebean gave his pledge to the Wildcats.
“After much thought and consideration, I have decided to continue my athletic and academic at Kansas State University,” Stufflebean wrote in a message posted on his personal Twitter account.
Stufflebean, who stands 6-foot-4 and weighs 235 pounds, plays on both offense and defense at McPherson. He lines up at tight end on offense and defensive end on defense.
He took part in a one-day camp at K-State last weekend and immediately received an offer from the Wildcats.
Stufflebean — ranked as a three-star prospect by both Rivals and 247Sports — picked K-State over offers from Wisconsin, Virginia Tech and Colorado, among others. He had an official visit to Wisconsin scheduled for later this month prior to making Sunday’s commitment.
Rivals and 247Sports also agree on Stufflebean’s talent within the state, both tabbing him as the No. 10 player in Kansas in the 2020 cycle.
The Wildcats have 11 players committed for 2020, the most in the Big 12 as of Sunday evening.
Stufflebean’s pledge was the fifth in less than a week for K-State’s 2020 haul. Texas linebackers DeMarrquese Hayes and Jeremiah Harris committed Friday. Defensive lineman Ronald Triplette joined the fold Wednesday. And in-state lineman Talor Warner kicked things off Monday.
The other members of the class include defensive end Nate Matlack, tight end Christian Moore, athlete Makholven Sonn, star Manhattan High offensive lineman Sam Shields and running backs Chris “Deuce” Vaughn and Keyon Mozee.
