WR Jeune Holds KSU Offer

MANHATTAN, Kan. - Stating that he is looking for a team with good chemistry, New Jersey Wideout Ricky Jeune holds several offers, including one from Kansas State.

KStateFans.com caught up with Garden State prospect, Ricky Jeune, a 6-foot-3, 205-pound wide receiver, who was offered by the Wildcats staff during the spring evaluation period.

Jeune visits thus far have been limited to the northeast but he's hoping to make it out to Manhattan later in the year, perhaps on an official visit.

"It was in the spring when Kansas State was here and offered me," said Ricky Jeune, who plays at St. Joseph Regional High School in Montvale. "I know it's a school in the Big 12 with a pretty good football program. Hopefully, I can get out there and find out more about them.

"They loved my determination to get to get to the ball no matter what," said Jeune. "If I have to go over the defensive back or run across the middle, I'm going to make the play. They liked my size, speed and athleticism. I'm a tall possession receiver who can make the catch in the clutch, but also a deep threat down the field."

Jeune has visited Boston College, Connecticut, and Rutgers, schools that have offered. He also holds offers from Kansas State, Kansas, Purdue, and East Carolina.

"The only camp I went to was at Boston College," he said. "I've been mainly working out for to prepare for the season, so I haven't made too many visits out of my area. I'm hoping to commit sometime early in the season, but even if I do I still want to take my official visits.

"Right now I don't have any favorites. I'm still keeping all of my options open. I'm going to look to join a team with good chemistry. I'd like the coaches to explain to me what my role will be with the team and how they plan on using me and that will give me a better idea of where I'd fit in the best."

Jeune had a highly productive junior season for the Green Knights. He hauled in 43 receptions for 855 yards and 14 touchdowns. His team won New Jersey's Non-Public Group 3 championship with a win over Delbarton. In the game Jeune grabbed a 27-yard pass for a touchdown to put the Green Knights up for good.

He also plays defensive back and is getting some college interest there as well. He had two picks last season in St. Joseph last season and looks to play more on that side of the ball as a senior.
