Following his weekend visit to Manhattan, former four-star Colorado running back Dylan Edwards has reportedly committed to Kansas State in the transfer portal.

GoPowercat’s Tim Fitzgerald confirmed the news of Edwards’ commitment on Sunday morning to the Kansas State Wildcats.

 

“An original commitment to Kansas State in the summer of 2022 eventually ended with a commitment to Notre Dame and finally one to Colorado,” GPC’s Cole Carmody writes. “After one season in Boulder, Dylan Edwards entered the transfer portal. On Sunday morning, as the family’s visit wrapped up for the Edwards, Dylan Edwards chose K-State again.”

The news of Edwards’ commitment is a huge change from just one year prior, as the Kansas native originally committed to Kansas State in the Class of 2023 after graduating from high school. However, after de-committing from the Wildcats to join the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, the Kansas native de-committed once again to head to Colorado.

Coming out of Derby (Kan.), Edwards was the No. 100 overall recruit and the No. 3 running back in the Class of 2023, according to Rivals. He was also ranked as the top player in the state of Kansas. In his freshman season with the Buffaloes, Edwards totaled 520 yards and five touchdowns as a true freshman last season.

With his commitment, Edwards became the first player to commit to Kansas State this spring through the transfer portal and will add a new element of explosion to a team that’s no stranger to homerun-hitters. Kansas State now features an all-Kansas backfield made up of Avery Johnson (Maize, Kansas), DJ Giddens (Junction City, Kansas), and Dylan Edwards (Derby, Kansas).

While Kansas State Head Coach Chris Klieman will still need to fit all the pieces together, on paper, the Wildcats’ offensive attack should be one of the nation’s top-ranked units in 2024.
