Kansas State men’s basketball added one player to its ranks Wednesday, as 2021 prospect Logan Landers signed with the team on the first day of the fall national signing period.

The team is No. 8 in Division 2 in the preseason poll. Landers is the No. 30 center in the nation, and the No. 5 player in Wisconsin, according to 247Sports. Both 247Sports and Rivals consider Landers a three-star prospect. He’s also a star on the baseball diamond, owning a 1.94 earned run average as a high school pitcher.
“Obviously, we are really excited to welcome Logan and his family to K-State,” head coach Bruce Weber said in a release. “One of our main areas of focus in this recruiting period was getting another skilled big man — one that can give us some different options, alongside (sophomore transfer) Kaosi (Ezeagu), (freshman) Davion (Bradford) and (sophomore tranfer) Carlton (Linguard, Jr.). Logan is a very, very skilled player. He is a good passer and can do a lot of things with the basketball. He has really developed into a very good 3-pointer shooter, which will give us even more versatility on the court.”
Landers transferred to Cedarburg in the Spring of 2020 after three standout seasons (2017-20) at Brookfield Academy in Brookfield, Wisconsin, helping the Blue Knights to a 56-18 (.757) overall record and two appearances in the WIAA Regional Final (2018, 2020). He scored more than 1,000 points (1,082) in his career on 50 percent shooting (417-of-834) and averaged a near double-double (14.8 ppg., 9.4 rpg.) in 73 games played.
In addition, Landers collected 28 double-double (points-rebounds) in his career at Brookfield Academy, including 18 as a sophomore in 2018-19. He also had 14 games of at least 20 points, including a career-high 32 points against powerhouse Milwaukee King in the first game of the 2019-20 season.
