Kansas State apparently made a good first impression on Kameron Sallis.
Sallis, a defensive back from Kennedale, Texas, became the Wildcats' latest addition to its 2023 recruiting class on Tuesday, posting his pledge on social media. Of the five commitments so far for K-State, he is the first from outside the state of Kansas.
The 6-foot-2, 195-pound Sallis also made a good first impression on Wildcat coach Chris Klieman and his staff with a strong showing at a June 4 Fort Worth mega camp on the TCU campus. Although he also held scholarship offers from Arizona State, Georgetown, New Mexico State, Northern Arizona and Georgetown, his lone visit was this weekend to K-State and he promptly committed.
Other schools that showed interest in Sallis included Mississippi State and Nebraska.
Sallis, who projects as a safety at K-State, helped Kennedale High School in the Dallas/Fort Worth area to a 10-2 record. He had 47 tackles and four interceptions for the Wildcats, who advanced to the second round of the playoffs.
K-State now has received two pledges from this past weekend. On Sunday, Blue Valley wide receiver Andre Davis made his commitment.
Two other top in-state targets — Derby running back Dylan Edwards and Lawrence Free State offensive lineman Calvin Clements — also were among the weekend visitors. Edwards is scheduled to visit Missouri next weekend while Clements will be at Baylor before making their decisions.
Maize High School quarterback Avery Johnson, another top 2023 priority for the Wildcats, just took his last official recruiting trip to Oregon. He was at K-State the previous weekend and earlier this month visited Washington.
So far, K-State has landed commitments from four of the top 10 players in Kansas in the 2023 cycle — Davis, Kansas City Piper offensive lineman Camden Beebe, Kapaun-Mt. Carmel tight end Will Anciaux and Wichita Collegiate defensive back Wesley Fair.
