Former Kansas State OT Manase Foketi graded out at 95 percent on his blocks and was a finalist for D-II Lineman of the Year after transferring to West Texas A&M for his senior season.

K-State refused to release Foketi from his scholarship after he left the team last summer, forcing him to transfer to an FCS school. 6-foot-5, 320-pound Foketi had a successful season, starting all 15 games at left tackle for West Texas A&M. A primary concern for Foketi's stock will be reviews from Bill Snyder's coaching staff. If Kansas State holds a grudge, they may not be positive.

Senior T Manase Foketi is transferring from Kansas State to Division-II West Texas A&M, according to CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.

Despite not drawing much attention, this situation turned somewhat messy. Foketi repeatedly asked Kansas State for his release from scholarship so he could transfer to another program, most likely Utah, but Wildcat officials regularly refused. The senior wanted to leave the program so badly that he transferred down to the Division-II level rather than continue his career at Kansas State. Foketi started 13 games as a junior but medically redshirted last season and his name had even been mentioned in Supplemental Draft discussion. He remains on track for the 2013 Draft.

A Supplemental Draft has "not yet" been officially scheduled by the NFL, according to CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.

Brugler obtained this information directly from the NFL, but he could not confirm if any players have applied for consideration. The only three names we have seen that have been rumored to be considering the Supplemental Draft are Georgia senior safety Bacarri Rambo, Kansas State senior tackle Manase Foketi, and Boston College senior running back Montel Harris who is rumored to be transferring to Temple. More names could surface in the next few weeks.

Kansas State T Manase Foketi is considering applying for July's supplemental draft, according to SI's Tony Pauline.

After starting 13 games as a junior, Foketi was ticketed to continue his spot on the blindside last season but injured his right ankle during the school's second game and missed the rest of the year. There were rumors Foketi would seek a medical redshirt season, and Pauline further clarified that the tackle attempted to transfer, but the transfer request was denied. At 6'5/300 pounds, Foketi offers desirable size and was once considered a draftable prospect.
