The Kansas State men’s basketball team made a lasting impression on Luke Kasubke over the weekend.
Kasubke, a 6-foot-4 shooting guard from St. Louis, is ready to play for the Wildcats. The three-star prospect announced his commitment to K-State on Tuesday, a few days after wrapping up a recruiting visit in Manhattan.
His decision is welcome news for K-State coach Bruce Weber.
The Wildcats now have two pledges for their 2020 class, and it’s still early in the recruiting cycle. They expect to add at least one more.
Kasubke joins Indianapolis guard Nijel Pack, who committed to K-State earlier in the summer.
K-State coaches have shown interest in Kasubke for quite a while, and it’s easy to understand why. He is the No. 144 recruit in the 2020 class, according to Rivals, and his size allows him to play both shooting guard and small forward.
He is expected to help K-State replace the departure of senior wing Xavier Sneed following the conclusion of the upcoming season.
Though he attends Chaminade High School in St. Louis, Kasubke spends his summers playing for Kansas City’s Mokan Elite team on the AAU circuit.
He made his recruiting visit to K-State with Mokan teammate Davion Bradford, who remains uncommitted.
Kasubke chose K-State over other finalists Loyola-Chicago and Saint Louis, but he also boasted scholarship offers from Creighton, Illinois and Xavier.
