Offensive tackle Robert Castaneda and guard Dalton Risner committed to Kansas State today. Head coach Bill Snyder now has three commitments for the 2014 recruiting class.

Castaneda is a 6-5, 300 pound high schooler from Round Rock High School in Round Rock, Texas. He had only one other offer, Texas Tech, but did have Alabama, LSU, Texas A&M, and Baylor on his list of schools. At the SPARQ combine in Texas, Castaneda ran a 5.38 40-yard dash and  4.78 shuttle, and earned first-team all-district in his junior year last season.

Risner is a Wiggins, Colorado product who spurned nine other offers to commit to the Wildcats. Missouri, Colorado, and Boise State offered Risner while Arkansas, Oklahoma State, Oregon and Stanford showed interest.

Even as a two way player in a small 1A school, Risner has shown a lot of ability. He was a first-team all-state member last season on the strength of 70 tackles and two sacks. The 6-4, 285 pound guard will be a senior at Wiggins High School this fall.
