Kansas State gets commitment from point guard Kamau Stokes

Kansas State landed a commitment from a point guard Sunday morning.

Kamau Stokes, a three-star recruit, orally committed to the Wildcats after attending their 70-69 victory over Iowa State on Saturday at Bramlage Coliseum. He sat behind K-State’s bench dressed head to toe in K-State clothing.

Stokes is a 5-foot-10 guard and former Toledo pledge from Baltimore that is finishing up a postgrad year at Fork Union Military Academy in Virginia. His coach announced his commitment Sunday and news quickly spread across social media.

The addition of Stokes makes K-State’s 2015 recruiting class a four-man group, one over the number of available scholarships the Wildcats currently have. He joins Florida guard Barry Brown, St. John forward Dean Wade and Arlington, Texas, center Dante Williams. The Wildcats are losing two seniors and have one free scholarship from the transfer of Jack Karapetyan.
