2013 Prospect Wesley Iwundu Verbally Commits to Kansas State
Bruce Weber and the Kansas State Wildcats added a fourth member to their 2013 recruiting class. Following the signing of Alex Etherington, Darrell Johnson and Marcus Foster, the Wildcats received a commitment from 6-foot-6 wingman, Wesley Iwundu.
Iwundu was considered a 3-star prospect by many. He has been one of the top players in the greater Houston area for a couple years now. The forward had his eyes set on a top school, and preferred to play in the Big 12 – therefore making Kansas State a great fit for him.
The commitments puts the Kansas State’s recruiting class amongst the top in the conference. Etherington is a 6-foot-5 small forward from the Midwest. He plays his high school basketball in Indiana, and committed to the Wildcats back in June.
Johnson is a 6-foot-8 power forward from St. Louis. He played football and basketball in high school, and is one of the best among a very competitive pool of talent in that specific area.
Foster is a great player for the style of play that Weber will elect to play in Manhattan. Foster is a 6-foot point guard out of of Wichita Falls. The guard had schools such as California and Oklahoma coming after him. He was signed just a week ago, and it was considered a great find for coach Weber.
It appears Weber is going to bounce back just fine in Manhattan. His biggest complaint while at the University of Illinois was his recruiting. After losing Bill Self’s players, the Illini fans had a tough time swallowing the type of talent that he was bringing into Illinois. Now, the verdict is still out on these players, and whether Weber can get them to develop or not is the next question.
One thing is true – Weber is putting forth a great effort in his first off-season at Kansas State.
