Donovan Starks and Judah Jones are the two most recent verbal commitments to Bill Snyder's Kansas State Wildcats as we get closer to 2012 National Signing Day.
Starks, a 5'11" 165 lb athlete from Crobsy, Texas had interest from SEC-bound Texas A&M, but K-State was his first offer.
Jones, is a 6'1" 188 lb wide receiver who picked Kansas State over offers from Arkansas, Houston, and Louisiana Tech. He prepped at Evangel Christian in Shreveport, Louisiana. Evangel Christian may sound familiar because they have had success with quarterbacks reaching the Division One level including Brock Berlin, Josh Booty, and John David Booty. Current NFL players Keyunta Dawson and Jacob Hester also are alumni.
It was an interesting battle between the Razorbacks and the Wildcats for the services of Jones. Ironically both schools matched up in the 2011 Cotton Bowl.
With that, Kansas State's class currently sits at 18 players. Don't be surprised to see a few more names end up on the dotted line come Wednesday.
For more information on K-State, make sure to head on over to Bring On The Cats, park of the SB Nation Network of blogs.
