"I have always been a Kansas State fan."

Braden Wilson, linebacker from Smiths Center, Kansas, will not enroll until January 2009. Wilson was offered as a grayshirt, and he is excited about the opportunity presented by the Wildcats.

"I have always been a Kansas State fan," said Braden Wilson. "It's the school I always wanted to play for. Plus, they were the only school who offered me. I have been to their campus several times, and I really like it."

"KState offered me a week before signing day. It was a pretty good feeling when they offered me. I was pretty excited."

"I won't enroll until next January. I was offered a grayshirt. I think I could use it to my advantage. I can get bigger, faster and stronger. I don't think it's a bad deal at all."

When asked his relationship with the Kansas State coaching staff Wilson replied, "I have a good relationship with them. Coach [Matt] Wallerstedt was my recruiting coach. He is all right. I think coach [Ron] Prince is a good guy. He knows what he is doing."

As a senior, the 6-foot-3, 215-pound prospect rushed for over 1,800 yards. He was named first team All-State for his performance.

"I was recruited as a inside linebacker," Wilson said. "I could also play tight end. I would prefer to play linebacker. I think I can hit anyone. I probably need to improve my quickness and speed."
