Kansas State’s men’s basketball team landed another highly touted 2020 recruit Tuesday.
Selton Miguel, a 6-foot-4, 195-pound small forward out of Orlando, Florida, verbally committed to the Wildcats during a ceremony at West Oaks Academy Tuesday afternoon. Miguel picked K-State from a host of offers, including Big 12 rivals Iowa State and TCU as well as Texas A&M and Western Kentucky.

Miguel is highly regarded by both 247Sports and Rivals.
He’s ranked as a three-star prospect by 247Sports, coming in at No. 144 nationally and No. 11 in the state of Florida for the 2020 cycle. Rivals is even higher on Miguel, tabbing him a four-star recruit and the No. 105 player in the country.
Miguel is the newest member of what is, on paper, a star-studded class for K-State.
The Wildcats already held commitments from Indianapolis point guard Nijel Pack and St. Louis shooting guard Luke Kasubke. All three members of the trio are part of the Rivals150, with Miguel leading the way at No. 105, Pack next at No. 131 and Kasubke coming in at No. 145. The last time the Wildcats had three players in the Rivals150 in the same class was 2009: Wally Judge (No. 18), Rodney McGruder (No. 84) and Nick Russell (No. 119).
Pack (No. 102) and Miguel (No. 138) both are in the 247Sports Composite’s top 150 prospects in 2020, with Kasubke (No. 155) missing by a hair.
With Miguel’s commitment, K-State’s class now ranks No. 16 nationally (No. 2 among Big 12 schools) according to Rivals. The Wildcats’ class also ranks No. 2 in the Big 12 in the 247Sports Composite, but is even better nationally, coming in at No. 11.
