The Kansas City Star
Top five recruits
|Terrell Clinkscales||DT||N/A||6-4||315||Dodge City (Kan.) CC|
K-State may have picked up its top incoming recruit when Clinkscales switched from Nebraska last month. The defensive tackle was a force at Dodge City, and is expected to make an immediate impact on the Wildcats defensive line.
|Dvonta Derricott||LB||N/A||6-1||230||Garden City (Kan.) CC|
This junior college linebacker drew attention from major programs all over the country, but he stuck with K-State after committing early. He could make a big difference on defense.
|Dalton Risner||OL||6||6-5||300||Wiggins (Colo.) HS|
Dont be surprised if Risner follows B.J. Finney and has a long career as a starting center. He chose K-State over Colorado, Missouri, Arizona State and other major programs.
|Dalvin Warmack||RB||11||5-8||183||Blue Springs HS|
He had a star-studded high school career, and could conceivably play as a freshman with John Hubert no longer on the roster. Warmack, a two-time Kansas City Star All-Metro player of the year and Simone Award winner, also had offers from Missouri, Kansas and Oklahoma State.
|Kaleb Prewett||DB||37||6-2||197||Blue Springs HS|
The safety picked K-State early in his senior year and stayed with the Wildcats despite receiving offers from Missouri and Oklahoma State. He could be a future starter in K-States secondary.

One that got away
It looked like K-State had found a quarterback capable of taking over for Jake Waters and Daniel Sams until Aaron Sharp, a dual-threat player, switched his commitment to UCLA.
Still fishing for
For once, K-State got commitments for the bulk of its recruiting class well ahead of time. The Wildcats have more or less been done recruiting for 2014.
Position answered for
The Wildcats lost key members of their offensive line last season, but they brought in several quality blockers capable of competing for playing time. At the least, they will add much needed depth to the unit.
Position unanswered for
K-State is set at quarterback next season, but failing to sign a quarterback in the 2014 class could come back to haunt the Wildcats in a few years.
