While Texas A&M lured Kansas State Offensive Coordinator Collin Klein away from his spot in Manhattan, Mike Elko’s squad dipped back into the Wildcats’ reserves by landing sophomore quarterback Will Lee III in the transfer portal.
Lee joined Chris Klieman and the Wildcats after spending time at the JUCO level, and after spending one season in Manhattan, Lee elected to enter the transfer portal. Lee will now take the field as an Aggie in the fall.
Lee was a massive part of Chris Klieman’s defense in the 2023 season and started the majority of games for the Wildcats. Lee finished his sophomore season off with 32 total tackles, one forced fumble, two interceptions, and six pass breakups.
Coming out of Iowa Western CC, Lee was listed as a three-star prospect by the 247Sports index as well as the nation’s 39th-ranked JUCO prospect. He was graded as the fourth-ranked player at his position and the fifth-ranked player in the state of Missouri.
Kansas State will now have a new spot to fill ahead of the 2024 season. Still, with this offseason shaping up to include one of the busiest portal cycles in college football history, Chris Klieman should have some options available for replacement.
