This week’s recruiting notes for Kansas State football provide positives for the team’s offense going into the 2023 season.
Wideout Phillip Brooks announced Tuesday that he will return for his sixth season of eligibility, providing a bridge from the 2022 corps to a group of young wide receivers expected to see time in the fall. Brooks finished the past season with 45 catches for 587 yards and four touchdowns and will be the lone returning starter at the position.
In his career he has 129 catches for 1,538 yards and nine touchdowns.
Brooks coming back also means the Wildcats will retain their top punt returner for the next season. He has returned 42 punts for 639 yards and four touchdowns in his K-State career, good for fifth all-time in yardage and second in touchdowns.
Florida State running back Treshaun Ward also announced Tuesday that he will transfer to K-State after a career in Tallahassee that has seen him limited in his usage.
The former Florida State walk-on was a Top 25 player in the transfer portal and No. 2 running back according to The Athletic.
Ward ran for 628 yards and seven touchdowns for the Seminoles this past season as a redshirt sophomore and is expected to be a replacement for Deuce Vaughn, who announced recently that he will be declaring for the NFL Draft this spring.
