MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — The first head-to-head showdown between Kansas coach Les Miles and Kansas State counterpart Chris Klieman was waged not on a football field but in classrooms and living rooms.

Give this one to the Wildcats.

During a packed news conference at Free State High School in Lawrence, not far from where Miles will lead the Jayhawks next season, Jax Dineen and teammate Keenan Garber pledged their services to Kansas State. Dineen will play fullback and Garber, one of the top prospects in the state, will play wide receiver when Klieman begins his first season this fall.
