In a roller coaster of recruitment, Prairie View A&M graduate transfer safety Reggie Stubblefield plans on enrolling at Kansas State this fall. After announcing on June 2 that he was no longer enrolling, Stubblefield announced on Friday that he would return to Manhattan after all.

Stubblefield is expected to play the nickelback position for the Wildcats, a spot the Wildcats have been looking for an experienced player to take over.

Throughout his career at Prairie View A&M, Stubblefield racked up 46 total solo tackles, 6.5 tackles-for-loss, two interceptions, one forced fumble and 15 passes defended.

Stubblefield is the ninth transfer landed by head coach Chris Klieman and company this offseason, joining Russ Yeast, Julius Brents, Eric Munoz, Kade Warner, Timothy Horne, Daniel Imatorbhebhe and Cincere Mason.

In other recruiting news, the Wildcats landed a commitment from Hutchinson Community College transfer Kingsley Ugwu. Ugwu will likely act as a ‘plug and play’ left tackle this season.

Ugwu held offers from Baylor, Colorado and Texas Tech as well.

He is the third former Blue Dragon on the roster this upcoming season, joining defensive end Kirmari Gainous and corner Justin Gardner.

During the spring season, Ugwu helped lead the Blue Dragons to the NJCAA football championship.
