— Kansas State picked up an unexpected commitment from a touted defensive tackle on Sunday.

Terrell Clinkscales, a four-star recruit and the nation's No. 15 junior college prospect by Rivals, announced on Twitter that he will play for the Wildcats next season. He had previously committed to Nebraska.

"In life, you have to do what's best for you," Clinkscales wrote on Twitter. "I'm officially decommitting. I will be attending K-State next year. I have to go where the love is."

Clinkscales made 43 tackles and four sacks last season for Dodge City Community College. He told Rivals that he intends to arrive in Manhattan in time for summer practices.

He wasn't the only junior college recruit who committed to K-State over the weekend. Jesse Mack, a three-star cornerback from Highland Community College, also chose the Wildcats while on an official visit, according to GoPowercat.com.

In all, K-State has 19 known commitments for its upcoming recruiting class.
