Kansas State basketball coach Bruce Weber is almost finished with his 2013 recruiting class. The Wildcats had four scholarships to offer, and three of them are already spoken for.
Indiana small forward Alex Etherington was the first high school player to commit earlier this summer, then came Wichita Falls, Texas shooting guard Marcus Foster and Houston small forward Wesley Iwundu.
That leaves one spot, which K-State would ideally like to fill with a power forward or center. But the Wildcats could always go after another perimeter player, too, if they think he is too good to pass on.
If they go the big-man route, Atewe is clearly their top option. The 6-foot-9 Canadian power forward has offers from 20 Division I programs, but took his first official visit to K-State last week. He told Hoop Dreams Magazine yesterday that the visit went well and that the Wildcats are currently at the top of his list. But his recruitment remains ongoing.
On what he thought of K-State:
“Their very personable and can relate to what you’re going through,” he added. “I also loved that the team was like a family and all the fans are crazy about the team as well.’
“They also showed me how they play and I liked that as well, Just a great visit overall.”
