Point Guard

PGE.J. Harris*Crenshaw 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 or a story on Harris' commitment from Pac-West Hoops




PGLarry ReidNorthern Oklahoma CollegeMidwest City, Oklahoma6-1

Reid's name started popping up following the NJCAA Tournament in Hutchinson last month. He gave a verbal commitment to the Wildcats in late March, but later backed off of that before signing with K-State April 13. Other schools in the mix included TCU, Long Beach State, and Baylor. Larry averaged about 18 points, 5 rebounds, 6 assists and 2.5 steals for the Mavericks as a sophomore this past year while hitting 42 percent of his shots from the field and just over 38 percent from behind the 3-point stripe. He's originally from the Oklahoma City area. Some trivia for the Cliff Clavin in you: Reid was coaches at Northern Oklahoma by Mick Weiberg, who's the brother of Big XII Commissioner and K-State grad Kevin Weiberg. (4/13)



PGJavin TindallSouth High SchoolWichita, Kansas5-11

Tindall is an explosive point guard ho can do more than pass the ball. He averaged around 25 points per game this past season and was 2nd Team All-State for all classes while picking up first team honors in Class 6A. A lot of schools have stayed away from Javin because of his size and possible academic hurdles, but word now is that he could qualify. Javin has signed with Missouri-Kansas City. (4/25)



Shooting Guard/Small Forward


SG/SFJason Robinson*Seward County Community CollegeTacoma, Washington6-6

As a freshman last season Robinson had 17 points and 6.2 rebounds per game while earning 2nd team All-Jayhawk Conference and 3rd team All-Region honors. He's considered one of the top JUCO sophomores in the nation this season, averaging 19.5 points per game and 5 rebounds. Jason had official visits set up with both K-State and Idaho earlier in September, and was also considering Oklahoma State, St. Louis and New Mexico before deciding to sign with the Wildcats. Originally from Curtis High School in Tacoma, Washington, he was placed at Seward by the Idaho Vandals. He will have 2 years to play 2 at K-State.



SGDaryl WilliamsPasco-Hernando Community CollegeClearwater, Florida6-6

Williams from Florida...Williams from Florida. That's all the information we've had to go on for the last few weeks in searching this recruit down who visited on the April 15th weekend. Daryl averaged 17 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists per game this past season and was named first-team all-Florida junior college and the Most Valuable Player of the Sun Coast Conference. Daryl was also looking at South Florida and Southern Miss before inking with the Wildcats. (4/25)



SG/SFRichard TerryJacksonville (TX.) CCJoliet, Illinois6-3

Richard is another JUCO player who will come in to the Wildcat program with sophomore eligiblity. At 210 pounds, the freshman swingman averaged 18.8 points and 8.2 rebounds per game (shooting 52% from the field) for the Jaguars. As a senior at Joliet's Township High School in the 1998/99 season Terry averaged 13 points and 5.7 rebounds and was an honorable mention all-Chicago area player by the Sun-Times. (4/27)



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, but most of those teams have backed off in the spring. (4/17)



SGJoe GordonBrevard County (FL.) CCCocoa, Florida6-2

Gordon was the Southern Conference and Region 8 player of the year as well as the second-leading scorer in the NJCAA this past season. He averaged nearly 28 points a game while shooting 50% from the field and over 45% for three point land. The Sporting News lists him as one of the top two JUCO guards in the country and he's certainly not been overlooked on the recruiting trail either. Florida State, Miami, NC State, Maryland, DePaul and of course K-State are showing serious attention to Gordon. Coach Wooldridge recently scouted him at the Hutchinson NJCAA Tournament. So how did college recruiters overlook this sharpshooter who had 117 3-pointers on the season the first time around? As a high school senior Gordon missed most of the season after breaking both of his wrists in the third game of the season. Gordon has inked with Miami (FL.).(4/25)





Power Forward/Center

PFMatt SiebrandtCollege of Southern IdahoReno, Nevada6-8

A transfer from UNLV, Siebrandt was a first team all-district selection as well as the MVP for the Golden Eagles region. On the season he averaged 14.5 points and 6.9 rebounds while shooting 61% from the field in his first year at Southern Idaho. Originally recruited by the Runnin' Rebels out of Reno's Galena High School, Siebrandt was injured his freshman season and later received a medical redshirt. He will have 3 to play 3 at K-State.

Latest from JuCo Junction (4/26)



PFRandy HolcombLos Angeles City CollegeChicago, Illinois6-8

Holcomb signed with Fresno State out of Chicago's Lincoln Park High School in 1997, then sat out a year for the Bulldogs while getting eligible. A year later he left Fresno to enroll at L.A. City College. Some consider him the best remaining power forward not signed in this years JUCO class and a lot of schools are in contact. Rumored at one time to make an official visit at the end of April, he's now making his trip in early May. Providence and San Diego State have also received official visits, and there is late interest from Louisville and Cincinnati among others. Randy Holcomb Profile (5/8)



CSean FinnHays High SchoolHays, Kansas6-10

Kansas State has been involved with recruiting Finn for some time, and following a official visit in late March it appears the Cats are taking a serious look. At 6-10 and 200 pounds Sean may take some time to develop his game on the next level, but he's mastered it in high school. He averaged 23 points & 12 rebounds per game for Hays, who finished 4th in the 5A Tourney this year. Finn was also named a 2nd Team All-State and first Team Class 5A selection by both the Wichita Eagle and Topeka Cap-Joural. Finn chose Dayton over an offer from the Cats. (4/17)



CErmal KuqoSoutheast Iowa CCFort Scott, Kansas6-11

Kuqo is an interesting story. From Albania, Ermal needs to complete just 24 hours this year in order to transfer to a D-1 school and have 3 years of eligibility. There's more than enough schools who are interested in seeing him in their uniform for those 3 years too. Auburn is believed to for Kuqo, but he ill take an unofficial visit to Manhattan before deciding. Oklahoma and Arizona are still believed to be involved as well. Kuqo was a 2nd team All-Jayhawk Conference pick last season. Ermal decided to sign with Tulsa before he made a visit to Manhattan. (4/25)
