Kansas State Lands Mississippi State DL Jevon Banks

NCAA Football: Kansas State at Texas Tech

The Kansas State Wildcats added some much-needed depth on the defensive line with the addition of former Mississippi State Bulldogs defensive lineman Jevon Banks.

Banks didn’t see the field much in his three-year stint with the Bulldogs but managed to snag 25 total tackles and a half-sack throughout his time in Starkville. For the Wildcats, this is a major addition after losing multiple defensive linemen due to graduation, the position group was left thin.


Banks announced his decision via Twitter on Saturday morning, you can take a look at his Tweet below.

Banks adds to an already impressive Kansas State defense that was one of their main advantages in conference play this year, however, after losing key players in the offseason, the Wildcats will have to rebuild.

Joe Klanderman’s defense was turnover happy with 16 interceptions and ten forced fumbles on the year. K-State’s defense also led the Big 12 in defensive efficiency on the season, while ranking in the top half of the league in total defense, rushing defense and passing defense.
