With National Signing Day right around the corner, Kansas State still has plenty of room in its 2024 recruiting class.
Chris Klieman’s pledge list currently features just 10 prospects and ranks 70th in the On3 Industry Team Recruiting Ranking. However, the Wildcats are now trending heavily to add their first blue-chipper to the fold in Manhattan, according to the On3 Recruiting Prediction Machine (RPM).
Troup (Texas) wide receiver Trae Davis decommitted from Washington State on Nov. 13 as a three-star prospect. Now, he’s a four-star prospect and is eyeing a birthday commitment on Dec. 12.
Following an official visit in November, Kansas State recruiting insider Drew Galloway has logged an RPM selection in favor of the Wildcats landing Davis. K-State now has a 95.8% chance to land the former Wazzou pledge.

“It was a great experience and I loved it a lot,” Davis told K-State Online following his visit. “My favorite part of the visit was when I walked by the student section and they all knew my name and who I was. I know for sure that the students at K-State love the team and the players.”
Davis is the No. 466 overall prospect and No. 76 WR in the 2024 cycle, according to the On3 Industry Ranking, a weighted average that utilizes all four major recruiting media companies. On3 ranks Davis higher than other recruiting services, as he checks in as the No. 277 player in the On300.
K-State building 2024 recruiting class via flips
It was a busy October on the recruiting trail for the Wildcats, as they flipped three commitments: Jarrell (Texas) three-star wide receiver Jacques Spradley-Demps, Mount Vernon (Texas) three-star EDGE Boone Morris and Topeka (Kan.) Seaman three-star safety Callen Barta.
Headlining the K-State 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. 208 recruit and No. 21 EDGE in the cycle. He would easily be K-State’s highest-ranked commit in the 2024 cycle if he were to pledge.
