K-State added its fourth member of the transfer portal class of 2023 on Saturday, with former Mississippi State defensive lineman Jevon Banks giving his promise to Chris Klieman.
Banks spent three seasons at Starkville as a member of the Bulldog football team, where he totaled 26 tackles in those three seasons, as well as four tackles for loss.
The most productive season for the Mississippi native was last year, where he recorded 17 tackles and a half sack. Banks is likely to play more inside of K-State’s defensive line than on the edge, despite being listed at defensive end.
Banks will have two years left at K-State, having played in its 2020 COVID season and then appearing in six games in 2021 for Mike Leach, before playing in 10 contests last year.
Coming out of high school, Banks was a top three star and received offers from numerous power five schools.
Banks will slide into an offensive line that will be without veteran Eli Huggins at tackle and edge running back Felix Anudike-Uzomah. He became the fourth transfer to come to K-State after the season concluded, and the third from a Power Five program.
