OK, one last note from last week’s Scott City Catbackers event. By the way, if you ever get the chance, you should make the trek out there. I’ve been to these events in other cities, namely here in Wichita, and it doesn’t compare.
Here’s the point: Ron Prince told the fans in Scott City that so many junior college kids wanted to join the program that he and his coaching staff had to turn players away. At first, I found that hard to believe, but then I checked out a list of the top 50 junior college prospects in the country.
It was amazing.
Not with the number of Wildcats on the list – K-State is well represented by No. 19 Daniel Calvin, No. 32 Hansen Sekona, No. 38 Wade Weibert, No. 41 Josh Berard and No. 48 Blair Irvin – but by the number of prospects the program offered.
At least 18 other junior college players on the list were allegedly offered by K-State. To me, the most fascinating were Greg Cross and Jacob Bower. They’re quarterbacks; Cross signed with Pittsburgh and Bower landed with Tulsa.
Does that mean the staff is worried about Josh Freeman leaving early to the NFL? Does that mean the staff doesn’t believe Carson Coffman or Tysyn Hartman is prepared to lead the Wildcats if something should happen to Freeman?
