2019 Kansas State Commit Jaren Lewis - 3-star dual threat QB from Missouri

Kelly Thompson

Kansas State fans may soon be reminded of great dual threat quarterbacks of Wildcats' past with the signing of Jaren Lewis from Columbia, Missouri. 

Michael Bishop and Collin Klein come to mind as former Wildcats with a similar style as Lewis: good size, big arm, fast legs. 

Lewis basically followed Chris Klieman to Kansas State, taking his first official visit with North Dakota State, before committing to Kansas State one week after the new coach's contract was officially announced. 


Lewis will not compete for a starting job this year in Kansas State, with Skylar Thompson the presumptive and incumbent signal caller. In fact, he is likely to find a redshirt for 2019. However, in three years, in his redshirt Sophomore season, Lewis is likely to compete for the starting job in Klieman's run-first offense. At the very least, I'm sure the new KSU coach did not bring the Missouri product to Manhattan to have him ride the bench for five years, and as such he'll find some ways to use his athleticism on the field.

Excited to see how he develops. Looks like he can throw on the run which opens so many options for the offense.


I'm glad to see that Coach Klieman is thought of highly enough to bring recruits with him to Manhattan! Liked the hire a lot orginally, watching these recruits roll in make me like it even more.
