Kansas State’s annual Purple-White spring football game is an opportunity for players to execute the playbook at full speed and coaches to evaluate the players. This year, it also secured a high school player to play in the game in 2015. Immediately following the game, LB Sam Sizelove became the sixth player to give his commitment to the 2014 recruiting class.
The LB from Argyle, TX brings a lot to the team – and not just the most awesome name of the 2014 recruiting class so far. Sizelove is already 6’4″, 230 lbs and garnered interest from several schools. He attended a recruiting event at TCU and had firm offers from, among others, Houston, Illinois, Iowa State, Texas Tech, and Washington State. However, as of Saturday, he has promised to wear Wildcat Purple during his college career.
Sizelove (man, that name is awesome to type) is a three star recruit and becomes another piece of what should be a dominant linebacker corps for several years that reminds K-State fans of the units from the late 1990s and early aughts. He was named a Texas 3A All-State first team player and it is unknown whether he will assume the role of inside or outside linebacker. He played inside his junior year, where he had 138 tackles and two sacks.
Sizelove will concentrate on improving his speed over the upcoming year, and his ability to demonstrate a quicker step will go a long way towards determining where he is placed on the field. He joins a K-State recruiting class already ranked #26 in the nation and looking to improve with this latest recruit pick up.
