K-State Targeting The Class of 2005

After spending the spring evaluating high school players from the class of 2005 all over the country, the Kansas State staff has begun to narrow their focus. The most important thing for the class of 2005 will be adding size and hopefully picking up some kids who are ready to contribute immediately.


Leo Criswell, 6-9 WF/BF, Kansas City (KS) Piper- Going strictly off of talent, Criswell has a chance to become one of the best players the state of Kansas has produced in some time. He's a super ball handler and passer and has legitimate wing skills at 6-9 and could be a top 50, or much better, type prospect nationally. However, he must improve his low post play and learn to bring maximum effort each time he plays if he wants to live up to his considerable potential. Athletically he is an upper level guy and has seen interest from UConn, Florida, Texas, Miami, Marquette, UNC, Kansas, TCU, Nebraska, Missouri and several others including K-State.

Ryan Reid, 6-8 BF, Lauderdale Lakes (FL) Boyd Anderson- Reid announced himself nationally with a super showing at the recent Kingwood Classic in Houston. He's a blue collar guy who fights for everything he gets around the basket and he brings it on the defensive end as well. High major programs are just starting to find out about him and he is worth keeping track of if you are Kansas State and he could be a top 100 sleeper.
