Nothing can beat taking your rival down on the field. It gives you bragging rights for the year. Kansas State did that this past weekend when they took down Kansas 30-20. One thing that can come close though is getting a commitment from a recruit who goes to high school one mile from your recruits campus. On Monday, Kansas State did exactly that by securing the commitment of 3-star cornerback Ekow Boye-Doe, out of Lawrence, KS.

THE BOYE-DOE FILE
Boye-Doe is the 10th commitment in Kansas State’s 2018 class. Boye-Doe is the fourth defensive back commitment and the second cornerback in this class, joining Wayne Jones, Lance Robinson, and E.J. Thomas. Boye-Doe is the second commit from the state of Kansas, in addition to defensive tackle Jaylen Pickle. With the addition of Boye-Doe, Kansas State has the 10th ranked class in the Big 12, and the 83rd class nationally for 2018.
Boye-Doe picked the Wildcats over offers from Kansas, Tulane, Missouri State, and Northern Iowa. Boye-Doe has also been receiving interest from Oklahoma State, Iowa, Iowa State, and Missouri though no offers have come down from those schools yet. Boye-Doe was in Manhattan to take in the Wildcat’s victory over Baylor on September 30th, and came away very impressed with the entire game day atmosphere in Manhattan.
When you watch Boye-Doe play its easy to see him fitting in perfectly in Manhattan. Boye-Doe has great length to play defensive back, already standing 6-foot-1. In addition to that though, Boye-Doe has great ball skills. Many of his plays on film are of him playing wide receiver, and he routinely is catching the ball with his hands, not his body. Boye-Doe is also a long strider, which will help him cover more ground in coverage. His ceiling comparison to me is Aqib Talib.
