Clarence Bumpas, linebacker from Colorado Springs-Sierra, (Colo.), makes number eight for the Wildcats.
"Luckily for me K-State came to watch film on our running back and noticed me," Bumpas said. "That is when they started recruiting me. I liked the scenery at K-State. They have nice people, and I felt comfortable."
"Coach Prince is cool. He is a cool dude. He always shoots straight with you. When I went up to K-State it was like a great big family. I liked that."
Bumpas attended camp this summer and was impressed to name Manhattan his college home.
Bumpas made 80 tackles in 2007 including 16 sacks. He chose the Wildcats over a scholarship offer from New Mexico.
