Former KSU-signee still plans to be a Wildcat

Hutchinson QB Angelo Pease (5-10, 200) signed with Kansas State after he finished high school in Georgia, but was unable to qualify. After a year with the Blue Dragons, the talented athlete says he's still planning to end up with the Wildcats, but will listen to anyone who wants to recruit him.

"Kansas State was the school that believed in me and I felt if they believed in me that I should believe in them, so I signed with them," Pease told recently. "I'm still planning to go there after I finish up here in December, but I haven't really talked to the coaches there yet."

Pease is an athletic player who could end up playing almost any skill position on the offensive side of the ball.

"They wanted to give me a look at quarterback, but they thought they could use me in a lot of different ways," Pease said. "They wanted me as an athlete basically and then they would figure out how I could help them the best and I was all for that and I still am."

Last year, as a freshman quarterback at Hutchinson, Pease completed 50% of his passes for 1,226 yards, 11 touchdowns and six interceptions while rushing for 365 yards and seven more scores while leading them to a 7-4 record.

Recruiting hasn't really gotten underway, but Pease said he's open to listening to other schools even though he plans to sign with the Wildcats.

"I'm not going to totally shut the door," Pease said. "If schools want to look at me, I will listen and see what they have to offer, but Kansas State believed in me and stuck with me and that's where I think I will end up when it's all done."

Pease will have three years to play two once he signs with a school in December.
