Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline says Kansas State ILB Charmeachealle Moore "jumps out on film with his ability to make plays sideline to sideline and his aggressive nature."

"Moore is another nickel linebacker for the next level who should stand out on special teams," Pauline wrote. Moore should be available in the later stages of Day 3.

Kansas State redshirt junior S Kendall Adams whiffed on just two tackles in the final four games of the 2016 season.

Adams was far less sound in his tackling early in the season, missing 14 of 'em in the first six conference games on the schedule. Despite these early issues, the 6-foot-4, 211-pounder never lost the faith of HC Bill Snyder. Indeed, Adams sat out just 15 total snaps in 2016. For the season as a whole, he recorded 64 tackles and two interceptions.

Kansas State LB Elijah Lee was not invited to the NFL Scouting Combine.

The 6-foot-3, 228-pounder left school with a season of eligibility remaining last month. We're a little surprised by the snub, as Lee led the Wildcats with 110 tackles (72 solos) and had 6.5 tackles for loss and a pair of interceptions last season. A first-team All-Big 12 selection, Lee is seen by Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline as a possible fourth-round selection in this spring's draft.

Kansas State co-offensive coordinator Del Miller retired.

Miller was the first assistant coaching hire made by Bill Snyder at KSU. He ended up coaching under Snyder for 20 years. "I am very grateful to Del for staying with us as long as he has. He is a major contributor to the foundation of Kansas State Football as we know it today," Snyder said. "Having been the very first assistant coach hired for us in 1988 and still with us today, speaks volumes."

Kansas State head coach Bill Snyder released a statement saying he has been diagnosed with throat cancer, but the treatment will not impact his coaching duties.

It was reported last week that Snyder was undergoing treatment at a Kansas City hospital, and Snyder stated he has been going for three weeks and "am getting along very well." Kansas State opens spring practice on March 29. Snyder is 77 years old and has been at Kansas State since 1989, outside of a four-year hiatus.

ESPN's Jake Trotter reports that former Kansas State QB Collin Klein will join the Wildcats' staff as an assistant coach.

Home is where the heart is. Not only did Klein play quarterback under HC Bill Sneider, he was previously on Kansas State's staff from 2014-2015. At the time, he served as assistant director of recruiting, defensive quality control coach and graduate assistant. He then moved on to Northern Illinois for the 2016 campaign. With the Huskies, he acted as QB coach. During his playing career, Klein finished third in Heisman voting behind Johnny Manziel and Manti T'eo in 2012.

The Kansas City Star's Kellis Robinnette and Blair Kirkhoff report that Kansas State HC Bill Snyder is undergoing treatment at a Kansas City hospital for an undisclosed health issue.

There's not much information available at this juncture regarding the nature of Snyder's health concern. The Star reports that while the severity of the ailment is unknown, Snyder is responding to treatment and is hopeful that he will be able to coach spring practice. The 77-year-old is fresh off leading Kansas State to an 8-4 regular season campaign in 2016, capped off by a victory over Texas A&M in the AdvoCare V100 Texas Bowl at the end of December. Snyder announced that he would return for the 2017 season last month. Expect more on this story as details become available.

Kansas State signed three-star 2017 S Gervarrius Owens.

Scout.com ranks Owens as the No. 3 safety prospect in the state of Oklahoma. A summertime Memphis commit, he decommitted in October and subsequently took an official visit to Houston. The Cougs were unable to pry him from Bill Snyder's iron grip in the end. Over the summer Rivals' Bryan Munson was highly complimentary of the 6-foot-1, 188-pounder's tape, saying that he saw a "complete player."
Feb 3 - 8:30 PM

Kansas State signed four-star JUCO S Elijah Walker.

Walker briefly decommitted from the Wildcats last month but ultimately decided to take his talents to the Little Apple. "Walker is a well-rounded Safety prospect who could be deployed throughout the backend or down inside the box," ESPN opined about its No. 26 overall JUCO recruit. "Run and hit ballhawk with tempo changing big play ability."

Kansas State signed three-star 2017 LB Daniel Green.

Green took official visits to Utah, Kansas State and Oklahoma (in that order) in January. HC Bill Snyder's pitch worked on the Portland, Oregon, native. Oregon State was also hoping to secure his signature, but that dream went unfulfilled. ESPN ranks the 6i-foot-3, 225-pounder as the No. 26 linebacking prospect in the 2017 class. He is an aggressive, fast player, though that occasionally leads to some overrunning on potential tackles. Green's best attribute is his straight-ahead speeds. Lateral speed and shifting direction prove more problematic for him.
Feb 1 - 7:37 PM

Uncommitted three-star 2017 LB Daniel Green took an official visit to Utah this past weekend.

Green had been a member of USC's recruiting class up until his December decommitment. Having recalibrated his sights, the 6-foot-3, 225-pounder is now set to charge into the final stretch run before National Signing Day. In addition to this recent Utah official, Green also has official visits set for Kansas State and Oregon State later this month. All three of the Utes, Wildcats and Beavers will be making in-home visits to the linebacker before National Signing Day.

Jan 17 - 5:56 PM

Kansas State junior LB Elijah Lee will forego his final season of collegiate eligibility to enter the 2017 NFL Draft.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline was on Lee's potential jump earlier in the week. Pauline pegs the 6-foot-3, 228-pounder as a possible fourth-round selection in this spring's draft. During the 2016 campaign, he racked up 110 tackles (6.5 for loss), 1.5 sacks, a pair of interceptions and a forced fumble. Pauline notes that while Lee's size may be lacking, he offers a bulldog mentality when in pursuit.
Jan 6 - 7:06 PM

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline reports that Kansas State junior LB Elijah Lee is leaning towards entering the Draft.

Draft Analyst ranks Lee as the No. 9 outside linebacker in the class and one of the best weak side candidates available. Lee led the Wildcats with 110 tackles this past season. He also broke up five passes. "He’s a terrific pursuit/run and chase linebacker with average size," Pauline wrote.
Jan 5 - 1:25 PM

Kansas State redshirt sophomore QB Jesse Ertz threw for 195 yards and a touchdown while rushing for 67 yards and two additional scores in Wednesday's 33-28 win over Texas A&M in the AdvoCare V100 Texas Bowl.

Two of Ertz's three touchdowns came in the first half as the Wildcats worked their way to a 23-14 lead by the end of the second quarter. Touchdown No. 3 might have been the most important, though. That one came with nine minutes remaining in the contest and poured water on an Aggies comeback attempt. Texas A&M had drawn to within 26-21 prior to that one-yard scoring bust. After the Wildcats had officially come away with the victory, K-State players congratulated HC Bill Snyder via a Gatorade cooler filled with a small amount of confetti. Endearing. Kansas State finishes up their season holding a 9-4 record.

Texas A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin praised Kansas State senior edge rusher Jordan Willis' skills ahead of the two schools' bowl game.

"We’re not going to wait very long for them to call his name in Philadelphia this year," Sumlin said, referring to the 2017 NFL Draft. Willis recently accepted an invitation to the Senior Bowl, which makes sense after an 11.5 sack season. He is more of a straight-line rusher than other EDGEs in this class.
