Kansas State Offers Kilgore’s Jonathan Shepherd
Kilgore 2018 wide receiver Jonathan Shepherd has had an active week of recruiting. And on Thursday, he added his third Division I FBS scholarship offer in as many days.
Shepherd (6-3, 196) announced on Twitter that Kansas State has entered the pursuit.
The Bulldogs' playmaker also holds FBS offers from Colorado State and Louisiana-Monroe, as well as Division II offers from Northeastern State and Arkansas-Monticello.
Last season, in a predominantly run-oriented offense, Shepherd caught 17 passes for 260 yards and three touchdowns. Kilgore shared the District 9-4A Division I title, and advanced to the area round of the playoffs, finishing with a 7-5 record.
Kansas State, a member of the Big 12 Conference, is coached by Bill Snyder, whose career with the Wildcats has spanned more than two decades.
Last season, KSU finished with an overall record of 9-4. The Wildcats defeated Texas A&M, 33-28, in the Texas Bowl at the conclusion of the 2016 season.
Shepherd, like all college football prospects currently in their junior year of high school, will become eligible to sign with any school that offers him in February.
