Bill Snyder and the Wildcats landed their second commitment from a three star recruit this week on Wednesday. After OLB De’Vondre Campbell joined Kansas State’s 2013 class on Tuesday, Klein Oak High School (Spring, TX) guard Reid Najvar changed his plans and decided he too was Manhattan bound.
A 6’4″, 285-290 pound offensive lineman, Najvar had previously been committed to the University of New Mexico since December 7th. He reportedly also had offers from Air Force, Florida International, Louisiana Tech and Texas State but switched to the Wildcats within a week of receiving their official offer. His official visit is set for January 25th.
He was rated as a three-star recruit by both 247sports.com and ESPN’s recruiting nation. The former has him ranked as the 80th best guard in the country while the latter has him 107th. Rivals has him as a two-star recruit and has him unranked while Scout.com has him 99th amongst all guards but has him as a two-star player like Rivals.
Reid currently profiles as a strong, physical run blocker best suited for a run heavy offense. He has some ability in pass protection as well but his run-block mentality and aggressiveness can get him in trouble at times.
His older brother Jordan Najvar, a 6’6″ junior, plays TE for the Baylor Bears and caught 10 passes for 80 yards and 2 TDs this past season.
