The offers keep rolling in for Noel Ellis, the four-star prospect and nation's 25th-ranked corner out of Edna Karr High School in Algiers, Louisiana.

The latest offer for Noel Ellis comes courtesy of Kansas State, according to a source close to Ellis' recruitment.

That gives Ellis in the neighborhood of 15-to-20 offers, including FBS and FCS programs combined. Baylor and Nebraska are among his most recent offers, and TCU is also in the picture.

Ellis previously reported an Auburn offer and he visited the Tigers along with teammate Standish Dobard, a four-star tight end prospect, earlier this year.

Subsequent to the Auburn trip, though, Dobard committed to the Miami Hurricanes.

Ellis doesn't have an offer from the Canes, who signed another Louisiana prospect (Carencro DL Jacoby Briscoe) in February.

Where will Ellis camp this summer?

That's a key question. It's possible that he could earn an offer from LSU, his early leader, if Ellis camps with the Tigers. On the other hand, the Tigers have a lot of competition for their remaining offers in the secondary, and there have been reports that Ellis will not camp in Baton Rouge this summer.

Ellis is the leader in the secondary for Edna Karr, our preseason No. 1 team in Class 4A for the second straight year. In 2011, Karr finished as runner-up to state champion Neville.

Karr has made back-to-back appearances in the 4A finals. The Cougars dropped a heartbreaker to Franklinton in overtime in 2010.

Ellis was one of five Cougars named to the 4A first-team all-state squad in late December 2011. The others were '14 QB/WR Devante Noil (at "ATH"), OT Derek Edinburgh (LSU signee), '13 DT Titus Charles and DT Leonard Washington (Florida International signee).

Kansas State has enjoyed sustained recruiting success within the Louisiana borders. Coach Michael Smith, who oversees the wide receivers, was primarily responsible for the Wildcats signing QB Daniel Sams out of Salmen High School in Slidell a couple of years ago. In February, Smith played a huge role in Kansas State securing signatures from Mandeville RB Charles Jones and Evangel Christian-Shreveport WR Judah Jones.
