Cathey Signs with Snyder and Wildcats

KSCB News - February 2, 2011 1:44 pm

Liberal’s Jade Cathey hopes to follow in the footsteps of Liberal’s Lamar Chapman and Carlos Alsup to suit up for the Kansas State Wildcats. Eventually, that may happen. K-State received Cathey’s signature on National Signing Day Wednesday morning. The 6’5" wide receiver gave his verbal pledge to the Wildcats in late April. He is expected to grey shirt next year meaning he won’t join the team until the spring 2012 semester but would be eligible to play four years beginning during the fall of 2012 or could redshirt if desired. Cathey visited Manhattan and talked with head coach Bill Snyder last weekend. Cathey shattered Liberal’s receiving records in a two year career under head coach Wade Standley. He caught 91 passes for 1,461 yards and 19 touchdowns. He rushed for 137 yards and a touchdown and returned a punt for a score. This year, he caught 45 balls for 691 yards and nine touchdowns for the 3-6 Redskins. Cathey’s interview airs Thursday between 7:37 and 9 a.m. on Talkradio 1270 and kscbnews.net.
