Kansas State has landed a guy they hope will be their next big name running back.
Four-star recruit Dalvin Warmack, from Blue Springs, Missouri, committed to the Wildcats on Tuesday and is very excited about the opportunity to play for Kansas State.
Warmack told the Sporting News, “They said that they’ve had great success with running backs my size and that I fit into their offense really well. They love my film and my shiftiness, quickness and vision.”
He certainly fits the mold of a Kansas State running back, listed at 5-foot-9, 180 pounds, as he’s larger than current Wildcat John Hubert, who only stands at 5-foot-7. He’s also larger than former Kansas State running back Darren Sproles, who currently plays for the New Orleans Saints. Sproles stands at a mere 5-foot-6, but has still managed to have a relatively successful career.
Warmack had recently attended junior days at both Iowa and Illinois, but had not received an offer from either school. He received his Kansas State offer on February 22nd, a few weeks before he attended Kansas State’s Junior Day on March 2nd. He committed three days after he received his offer. Missouri offered a few days after the Wildcats, on February 28th, but came up short.
As a junior, Warmack rushed for 2,294 yards and scored 45 total touchdowns and was named the Kansas City Star’s All-Metro Player of the Year.
