K-State lands Stokes
The win for the Kansas State Wildcats on the court against Iowa State proved to be big on multiple fronts. The Wildcats not only got a win that could greatly enhance their chances to make the NCAA Tournament, but they also landed a key recruit in Kamau Stokes. Stokes is a 5-foot-11 point guard who is prepping at Fork Union (Va.) Military Academy originally decided to commit to Toledo as a member of the 2014 class. However Stokes decided to go to prep school and re-open his recruitment, and from there his stock really soared. Eventually Kansas State would offer Stokes, and during his official visit to the school he decided to pull the trigger and commit according to his AAU coach. This is big because it gives the Wildcats a scoring point guard who has some upside as he continues to mature and get stronger. He was a top target for them, and someone who should provide some scoring punch early in his career.
