Kansas State Loses Wide Receiver to Transfer Portal

NCAA Football: Kansas State at Texas Tech

Kansas State wide receiver D.J. Render has entered the NCAA Transfer Portal, according to

Render has been with the program since committing in the Class of 2016 out of Kennesaw, Georgia. Render just wrapped up his fourth season with the Kansas State football program and had actually flipped to defensive back prior to the 2020 season, but then dut due to wide receiver depth issues, Render made the switch back to wide receiver. He finished the season with seven catches for 56 yards.


Render was a three-star prospect who played at North Cobb High School and picked Kansas State over Georgia State, Charleston Southern, Chattanooga, East Tennessee State and Georgia Southern.

This is more of a depth loss for the Kansas State Wildcats, who should not necessarily be massively impacted by the loss, especially with veteran quarterback Skylar Thompson returning as play caller.

The Wildcats are coming off a 4-6 season where they got off to hot start going 4-0 in Big 12 play, including a win over the Oklahoma Sooners, before collapsing to close the season with five straight losses.
