Kansas State football’s 2020 recruiting class continues to grow. The Wildcats picked up their latest commitment Monday in the form of Georgia defensive back Tajiri Smith.
Smith announced his pledge on his personal Twitter account, tweeting out a graphic featuring him wearing a K-State uniform with the word “committed” superimposed on the photo.
Smith, who plays for McEachern High School in Powder Springs, Georgia, once had been committed to Memphis. But he decommitted from the Tigers last week before flipping to the Wildcats Monday, not long after he visited Manhattan.
The 5-foot-10, 185-pound Smith is considered a three-star prospect by both Rivals and 247Sports. Rivals ranks him as the No. 79 player in Georgia in the 2020 class while the 247Sports Composite tabs him the Peach State’s 112th-best player.
Smith is the Wildcats’ 20th commitment for their 2020 class. K-State’s 20 commits are third-most among Big 12 teams, trailing only Kansas (26) and Iowa State (21).
