Point Guard

PGE.J. HarrisCrenshaw High SchoolLos Angeles, California6-2

Harris has good size, strength and quickness for the PG position, as well as dazzling passing and ballhandling skills. Common opinion among those in the know is that he's one of the 10 best point guards on the west coast and top 40 in the nation after averaging 15 points and 7 assists a game as a junior. He's improved those numbers to nearly 20 points, 9 assists, and 6 steals per game. The Wildcats had recruited Harris the hardest of any school, and following both an in-home visit in September and trip to Manhattan the weekend of the Utah State football game he decided to commit and sign in the early period. Washington State, North Carolina State and Miami were also involved with Harris before he put pen to paper with the Cats this fall. You can read more about E.J. Harris at our scouting report.

SG/SFLuke DwyerWest High SchoolTopeka, Kansas6-5

Dwyer is widely considered the top prospect in Kansas after averaging 19 points and 12 rebounds per game and was a 2nd team all-state pick as a junior. Many recruiting experts believe that Dwyer will only improve as he plays against better competition, and Insiders Report has him as one of their top 125 players nationwide. He has unofficially visited Kansas State, Tulsa, TCU, and Central Florida, and is also interested in Indiana State. Dwyer has been offered by the Cats and they appear to be his leader over TCU. However in recent weeks the Cats have backed off of his recruiting following Robinson's verbal. Luke may now wait until the spring period to sign. (10/11)

SG/SFJames Davis Murray-Wright High SchoolDetroit, Michigan6-4

Currently is averaging over 20 ppg as a senior. A superb athlete and considered by many one of the top 15 player in the state of Michigan.  Most recently his top 5 has included K-State, Iowa, Miami, Detroit, and Toledo.  Davis is still hearing a lot from Nebraska, Marquette, and Tulane as well.  As you might expect, Davis is being recruited by Ernie Ziegler. (1/6)

SF Lester StrongKennedy High SchoolDenver Colorado6-7

One of the better players and athletes in Colorado this season. Strong is giving K-State a serious look in fact listing them as his number 1 source. Others involved include Colorado, Colorado St., San Jose St., St. Louis, and Wyoming, but grades could force him the Junior College route. (9/23)

Power Forward/Center

CJamaal DavisBarton County CCMerrillville, Indiana6-10

As a freshman Davis played for the Purdue Boilermakers before transferring to Great Bend before this season.  He is currently averaging 16 points and 9 boards a game.  Cincinnati and Louisville appear to be his top 2 schools, but K-State is in the mix. (1/12)

CJohnny DavisCentral High SchoolDetroit, Michigan6-10

A big (265 pound) center prospect being recruited by Ernie Ziegler. Davis is averaging 20 ppg, 12 rbs, and 5 blocks his senior season. A talented player, perhaps top 10 in Michigan, who's biggest challenge has been keeping his weight down. His list is down to Cincinnati, Maryland, Fordham, Miami, and K-State. (1/6)

PF/CStefan JabkiewiczGreenfield High SchoolMilwaukee, Wisconsin6-10

Schedued to visit Manhattan the weekend of November 13th, Stefan was not able to make the trip because his standardized test results (ACT) had not been posted. He's one of the top players in Wisconsin this season, and a big man with lots of potential still to be tapped. So far he's averaged 18 points, 15 rebounds and 3 blocks per game.   K-State leads Marquette, Old Dominion, Central Florida, Pittsburgh...but he's also hearing from Iowa State and Syracuse.  For a big man he has excellent range, but can bang down inside as well. He also has great hands and can also run the court pretty well for his size. Mark Fox is recruiting him for the Wildcats and will make an official visit later this season. (1/10)

PF/CDarris MancielPershing High SchoolDetroit, Michigan6-9

Manciel was scheduled to visit Manhattan the weekend of November 13th, but could not because his ACT test score has not been posted. Kansas State and TCU lead for his signature, but the action around him has picked up lately.... Manciel now believed to be one of the top unsigned big men in the country and has seen his stock skyrocket in recent weeks getting a lot of attention from Michigan, Michigan St., W. Virginia, Syracuse, Detroit, and Ohio St.. Darris, who averaged 10 points, nine rebounds, and five blocks per game in his junior season has upped those numbers to 15 pts, 11 rebs and 5 blocks as a senior. (1/6)
