K-State Sets Sights on Another WR

Garden City Community College continues to be the target of a heavy recruiting effort by Kansas State as it sets its sights on wide receiver Kenyada Tatum. With Dante Hall-like moves and size, Tatum can really make opposing teams pay when he gets in the open field.

Garden City Community College continues to be the target of a heavy recruiting effort by Kansas State as it sets its sights on wide receiver Kenyada Tatum.

With Dante Hall-like moves and size, Tatum is a slot receiver than can really make opposing teams pay when he gets to open field. Look for the 5-foot-9 170 pound sophomore who had 25 receptions for 257 yards this season, to see time as a return specialist as well. Tatum had 50 receptions for 500 yards as a freshman at GCCC.

The Wildcats' recruiting efforts at the receiver position becomes increasingly important with the recent news of Jerrill Humphrey committing to Missouri and just one WR commit thus far in Tatum's JUCO teammate Yamon Figurs.

"I consider myself an all-purpose receiver," said Tatum, a May graduate. "I have good hands and I can move after the catch, so I think I can do whatever is asked of me. I've been good on deep routes because I beat the coverage."

The shifty wide-out, who originally signed with Colorado out of Houston, Tex., doesn't plan to take his visits until January. Tatum is also being recruited by North Texas, Colorado, West Virginia, and Marshall.
