Kansas State University football has really turned around in the last couple of seasons with the return of coach Bill Snyder. This season saw the Wildcats compile a 10-2 record and garner an invitation to the Cotton Bowl.
Kansas State has had several players make it to the NFL in recent years.
Here are five of the top recruits to Kansas State football in the last 15 years:
Collin Klein is the current starting quarterback for the Wildcats. Klein has had a great season in leading the Wildcats to the Cotton Bowl. He has rushed for over 1,000 yards this season and has passed for 1,745 yards. Klein was recruited out of Loveland High School in Colorado, were he holds the school records for completion percentage and all-purpose yards.
Current New Orleans Saints running back Darren Sproles was recruited from Olathe North High School, where he captured virtually every single school rushing record. While at Kansas State, Sproles rushed for close to 5,000 yards. He had 24 100-yard games and five 200-yard games.
Dylan Meier played at quarterback and was recruited from Pittsburg High School in Pittsburg, Kan. While there he was the first quarterback to throw and pass for over 1,000 yards. During his high school career, Pittsburg appeared in two state championship games.
Linebacker Reggie Walker had a career total of 163 tackles, five sacks and an interception. Walker was recruited from Grant High School in Sacramento, Calif.
Ryan Lilja attended Shawnee Mission Northwest High School and was recruited to Kansas State from Coffeyville County College. Ryan Lilja is now playing on the offensive line with the Chiefs.
