Report: Kaleb Prewett transferring to Missouri from Kansas State

The former Blue Springs safety has a redshirt year to sit and be eligible as a junior

Kaleb Prewitt was a three star safety/receiver recruit from Blue Springs High School in Kansas City who committed to the Wildcats for the class of 2014. Gabe DeArmond first noticed the change to Prewett's twitter bio:

"Former Kansas State safety. Current Mizzou safety"

By my count, Missouri has two available scholarships and five safeties if we're counting sophomore Cam Hilton. Incoming 2016 recruit Greg Taylor expected to compete for a starting role right away alongside junior Anthony Sherrils. When I compared Missouri's depth chart to the recruiting rankings, safety was one of the most talented positions on the team.

Prewett's stats per KStateSports:

A little background info about Prewett from the KC Star, Kaleb Prewett no longer member of Kansas State football team:

Prewett started the first six games for K-State last season, missed one week with a concussion and rejoined the starting lineup for two more games. He was ultimately replaced at free safety by Kendall Adams. Prewett was arrested by Riley County Police on an underage drinking charge in early December and didn’t travel with the Wildcats to the Liberty Bowl.
