Jarrell (Texas) three-star wide receiver Jacques Spradley-Demps has flipped his commitment from North Texas to Kansas State.

The 6-foot-1, 190-pounder was committed to North Texas since June 26, but following an official visit to K-State on Oct. 21, the Wildcats managed to pull off their third commitment flip this month.

Spradley-Demps is the No. 168 wide receiver and No. 172 player in the Lone Star State in the 2024 cycle, according to the On3 Industry Ranking, a weighted average that utilizes all four major recruiting media companies.

Last weekend, Chris Klieman and Co. flipped Topeka (Kan.) Seaman three-star safety Callen Barta from Nebraska. One day later, Mount Vernon (Texas) three-star EDGE Boone Morris followed suit and flipped from UTSA. Both were alongside Spradley-Demps in Manhattan during that major Oct. 21 recruiting weekend.

Spradley-Demps does not currently have an On3 NIL Valuation. The On3 NIL Valuation is the industry’s leading index that sets high school and college athletes’ projected annual value (PAV). The NIL valuation does not act as a tracker of the value of NIL deals an athlete has completed to date. It rather signifies an athlete’s value at a certain moment in time.

K-State still molding 2024 recruiting class

Things are finally starting to take shape for the Wildcats’ 2024 class thanks to the trio of commitment flips this month. Spradley-Demps becomes the 10th pledge for Klieman and a K-State class that now ranks No. 70 in the On3 Industry Team Recruiting Rankings.

Headlining the class is a trio of in-state pledges: Lyndon three-star offensive tackle Kaedin Massey, Shawnee Mill Valley three-star OT Gus Hawkins and Stilwell Blue Valley three-star running back John Price.

Other commits include Castle Rock (Co.) Douglas County three-star safety Jake Stonebraker, Erie (Co.) three-star quarterback Blake Barnett, Downington (Pa.) West three-star interior offensive lineman Ryan Howard and West Des Moines (Iowa) Dowling Catholic three-star IOL Kyle Rakers.

The Wildcats are also currently trending for Kansas City Liberty North four-star EDGE Jayshawn Ross — the No. 326 recruit and No. 31 EDGE in the cycle — as well as Brandon (S.D.) three-star IOL Navarro Schunke — a top-50 IOL — according to the On3 Recruiting Prediction Machine (RPM).

Ross would be K-State’s highest-ranked commit if he were to pick the Wildcats. The likes of Alabama and Ole Miss are beginning to get involved in his recruitment, while Nebraska was a frontrunner for his pledge back in the summer. He was also in Manhattan on a visit on Oct. 21.
