Thursday was one to remember for Bishop Miege quarterback Ryan Willis. The son of a former Kansas State football player, the 2015 prospect received his first scholarship offer from the Wildcats. Willis reacts and talks about K-State with FOX Sports NEXT.

Ryan Willis will enter the 2013 season as the starting quarterback at Bishop Miege High School in Roeland Park, KS. The 2015 prospect will do so with his first Division 1 offer already in-hand.

"I'm very excited," the 6-foot-4, 195-pound passer said of landing a scholarship from Kansas State on Thursday. "It feels great that the coaches see the potential I have in my game. I'm honored that KSU thinks enough of me as a person and a player to offer me at this point."

A transfer from Olathe (KS) East, Willis arrived at Miege having never started a varsity game. At a recent K-State camp, the strong-armed junior put on a display for the Wildcats staff.

"It is a top-notch program with an awesome coaching staff," he said of Kansas State. "I've grown up following the Cats because my dad is a former player."

Ryan's father, Steve Willis, played for former head coach Jim Dickey. He was a kicker on the 1982 Independence Bowl squad, K-State's first-ever to become bowl eligible.
