Chris Klieman and the Kansas State Wildcats picked up a major win on the recruiting trail on Thursday, landing a commitment from Kaedin Massey, the No. 1 overall player in the Sunflower State.
Ranked as the No. 24 offensive tackle in the class of 2024, Massey held 13 Division-I offers and chose K-State over finalists Oklahoma, Ole Miss, and Nebraska.
Listed at 6-8, 280 pounds, Massey is a product of Lyndon High School and burst onto the scene as a junior, picking up his K-State offer back in October of 2022.
Massey took official visits to each of his finalists, seeing Oklahoma, Ole Miss, Nebraska, and Kansas State in person before deciding to stay home and play for Coach Klieman.
Massey’s commitment gives K-State its seventh pledge for the class of 2024, bringing the Wildcat’s up to No. 63 nationally, according to 247.
For now, K-State ranks ninth in the Big 12 for this cycle, but could certainly climb as they finish building out the class.
With Massey staying home, K-State keeps the top overall player in the state of Kansas home, which is key with teams like Oklahoma and Nebraska commonly targeting top talent in the state.
