Logan Landers, a 6-foot-10, 230-pound center from Cedarburg, Wisconsin, signed his letter of intent on the first day of Fall National Signing Period, men’s basketball head coach Bruce Weber announced Wednesday.

Landers, who committed verbally over Twitter at the end of October, is rated as the thirtieth best high-school center in the country and the fifth-best player in Wisconsin, according to 247Sports.

“Obviously, we are really excited to welcome Logan and his family to K-State,” Weber said to K-State Athletics.

Weber said bringing in another skilled big-man was a key focus in the program’s recent recruitment.

Landers played his first three years of high school basketball at Brookfield Academy, in Brookfield, Wisconsin. In 73 games, Landers averaged 14.8 points per game and 9.4 rebounds per game, tallying over 1,000 points in total.

Landers also notched 28 double-doubles in his high school career.

“In my heart, it was K-State,” Landers said to K-State Sports. “I need to follow what I want to do in my heart. K-State is an elite, top-level school, and they are in my heart, so that’s the school that I want to be and where I want to win.

Landers made it known that he isn’t coming to Kansas State just to be another average player — he wants to do the things that most players don’t like to do.

“The thing that I want to develop the most (in college) is that ruthless mindset of grabbing every single rebound that I can and when I get it in the post just being an absolute bully,” Landers said “I want to do all the stuff that most people don’t like to do. I want to get the rebounds. I want to do the dirty stuff that a lot of people don’t like to do that will make me a better player and a better teammate to help us win games.”

Landers is expected to tip-off his senior season in January, while the men’s basketball team gets their 2020-21 season underway on Nov. 25 against Drake in the Little Apple Classic at Bramlage Coliseum.
