C.J. Reese, a redshirt freshman defensive tackle, announced Friday on Twitter that he will transfer from Kansas State before making it on the field for his first down in a Wildcats uniform.
“I want to thank Coach (Bill) Snyder and the coaching staff for the opportunity they provided me here at K-State,” Reese wrote on his Twitter account. “I’m truly grateful for the lessons and experience that I have gained since I have been here. Unfortunately it’s time for me to find new home and finish what I started.”
A San Antonio native, Reese chose K-State over California, Colorado, Houston and SMU coming out of high school. The 6-foot-1, 265-pounder spent his lone season in Manhattan on the sidelines with a redshirt. He was expected to compete for playing time on the Wildcats’ defensive front as he matured, but he will now continue his college football career elsewhere.
Never miss a local story.
He joins reserve quarterback Taylor Laird and backup receiver Judah Jones as K-State players that have transferred since the conclusion of the 2014 season.
