Scout.com three-star prospect Blake Slaughter, a 5-foot-11, 210-pound linebacker from Elkins High in Missouri City, Texas made it Kansas State tonight when he put on the Wildcat cap during a live news broadcast.
Slaughter, who also held offers from schools like Oklahoma State and Texas Tech, has been described as a player who is soft spoken off of the field, but has the ability to "flip the switch" after the play begins.
