MANHATTAN, Kan. - This Weekend was a very productive weekend, with the 'Cats hosting quite a few prospects - Safety Kaleb Preweet was one of those who visited and decided to commit to Kansas State.

It was a big recruiting weekend in Manhattan. The staff took five commitments for players on Saturday. One came from defensive back Kaleb Prewett on the day he was offered. The 6-foot-2, 200-pound safety joins his Blue Springs High School teammates, Dalvin Warmack and Elijah Lee, as part of the Wildcats Class of 2014.

"I actually went to camp [at Kansas State] this weekend," Prewett told KStateFans.com. "Coach Hayes told me to call him when I got off campus. He said he wanted to offer me when I called him. I let him know right there that I was ready to commit. Then I spoke with Coach Snyder and Coach Miller.

"I've always been a Kansas State fan ever since I was a little kid. It's like my dream school to go play for. I had eight offers. Mizzou was on top of everybody that had offered me, but I was waiting for Kansas State. They told me if I came up to camp and performed well I'd receive an offer and that's what happened."

Prewett plays both strong safety and wide receiver for the Blue Springs Wildcats who won a Missouri state title in 2012. He was named first team All-Suburban Gold District as a junior. Coach Tom Hayes his getting a big time playmaker for his secondary unit.

"I love him," Prewett said of Hayes. "He's a real good guy with a lot of experience. I'm excited for the opportunity to play for him.

"They want me at safety. The first thing they said they liked about me was my speed. They like my ability to come downhill, cover ground, and cover the receiver."

In the 2012 state final against Francis Howell played at the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis, Prewett had an interception to thwart an early scoring attempt and was named the game's defensive MVP. He reports a best forty time of 4.4 and a 38" best in the vertical leap.
