Sports In Kansas starts its 2022 positional breakdown with top Quarterbacks. This is a very strong class of signal callers, highlighted by Maize’s Avery Johnson, a top-300 player nationally and Kansas State commit. He is the first No. 1 Kansas high school recruit to commit to K-State out of HS since 2004. Plus, Wamego’s Hayden Oviatt has committed to Army West Point. Wichita Collegiate’s Wesley Fair has committed to Kansas State as an Athlete. Eight- and six-man are also loaded. Two-time 4A champ St. James loses its all-state QB Jackson House as he moved out of state after his dad took the defensive coordinator job at LSU.

This list is not ranked or in any specific order.
Avery Johnson, Maize
Kansas State had been the projected pick for Johnson. On Wednesday, he made the choice official at Maize High School. Johnson and Derby running back Dylan Edwards are longtime friends, the top-two Kansas recruits and both Kansas State commits. This was historically monumental for the Wildcats to have both the state’s top-two recruits. While Kansas State has sometimes signed the Sunflower State’s No. 2 recruit, KSU has not had No. 1 since 2004, per the 24/7 database and SIK research.
Johnson recently impressed at the prestigious Elite 11 showcase, which has the nation’s top high school and collegiate quarterbacks. He is the reigning SIK 5A Offensive Player of the Year and led Maize to its first state title game last fall. Maize finished 10-3 and averaged 35.2 points a game, eighth-best in the classification. Johnson has multiple highlight reel games, including a win against Derby as a sophomore and the game-winning TD versus Kapaun Mt. Carmel in the state semifinals last season.
He is multiple-time first team all-state basketball and baseball and helped Maize win state basketball as a sophomore. He completed 162 of 296 passes for 2,549 yards with 20 touchdowns against six interceptions. Johnson delivered 146 rushes for 1,080 yards and 22 scores. Johnson’s leading receiver, Bryce Cahoon, has committed to Syracuse.
The last No. 1 Kansas recruit to sign with K-State out of high school was Cherryvale guard Matt Boss in 2004, per the 24/7 database. Here is the list of No. 1 recruits and where they went to school – a high percentage who had superb careers.
Johnson, Mill Valley’s Hayden Jay, Wamego’s Hayden Oviatt, St. James’ Jackson House and Rock Creek’s Dalton Whitworth headlined the all non-senior SIK team last fall. (House, an Eastern Kentucky commit, has moved to Louisiana when his dad took a job as LSU’s defensive coordinator).
No. 1 Kansas recruits:
2005 – Kerry Meier, Pittsburg – Kansas (played in NFL as WR)
2006 – Jake Sharp, Salina Central – Kansas (RB on Orange Bowl-winning team; current CEO of highly successful Sharp Performance in Salina)
2007 – Christian Ballard, Free State – Iowa (briefly played in NFL as DE)
2008 – Arthur Brown, Wichita East – Miami (eventually transferred to K-State after starting at Miami; now in K-State Ring of Honor as LB)
2009 – Bryce Brown, Wichita East – Tennessee (country’s No. 1 recruit, transferred to K-State where had very brief tenure; played in NFL as RB)
2010 – Blake Bell, Bishop Carroll – Oklahoma (probably the biggest KS QB prospect before Johnson; converted to TE, has enjoyed nice NFL career)
2011 – Jordan Phillips, Circle – Oklahoma (still active NFL player as DL)
2012 – Tyler Mathews, McPherson – QB who first went to TCU, then Southern Miss and New Mexico State
2013 – Jerel Morrow, Emporia – Oklahoma State (had nice Special Teams career with OSU)
2014 – Braden Smith, Olathe South – Auburn (highly successful OL for Indianapolis Colts)
2015 – Christian Gaylord, Baldwin – Nebraska (played six years for Huskers)
2016 – Xavier Kelly, Wichita East – first to Clemson; played at Arkansas; played 1 year with Baltimore Ravens
2017 – Jafar Armstrong, Bishop Miege – played in 31 games for Notre Dame; eventually transferred to Illinois
2018 – Jace Ruder, Norton – QB first committed to Tulsa, then North Carolina; earned degree at UNC; played at North Texas last fall
2019 – Breece Hall, Wichita Northwest – Iowa State All-American running back; drafted in 2022
2020 – Turner Corcoran, Lawrence Free State – current starter on Nebraska OL
2021 – Devin Neal, Lawrence – strong true freshman season at RB for KU
2022 – Jaren Kanak, Hays High – Oklahoma LB who has impressed early
Hayden Oviatt, Wamego
Like Johnson, Oviatt is a superb multi-sport athlete and won a state wrestling title. Oviatt led Wamego to its best scoring offense since at least the mid-80s, per SIK research. He committed to Army West Point. Oviatt was a 4A offensive player of the year finalist. Wamego has enjoyed excellent recent across-the-board success, including in football with coach Weston Moody. Wamego finished 9-2 and was seventh in 4A with 31.6 points a game. Oviatt finished with 1,535 passing and 1,470 rushing yards. He was No. 1 in 4A at 195 pounds in wrestling and all-state baseball.
Hayden Jay, Mill Valley
Mill Valley is the standard in 5A with state championships in ’15-16 and the last three under acclaimed coach Joel Applebee. MV and Maize will likely be ranked first and second in 5A preseason. In his first year as a starter, Jay continued the fine success from the Mill Valley quarterbacks. He completed 131 of 200 passes for 2,343 yards with 27 scores against seven interceptions. He rushed 117 times for 449 yards and 10 TDs. Mill Valley, which capably replaces players as well as anyone in Kansas, lost running back Reice Kennedy (1,412 rushing) and Shrine Bowl receivers Kendrick Jones and Jared Napoli. Mill Valley went 12-1 and ranked seventh in 5A with 35.4 points per game.
Wesley Fair, Wichita Collegiate
Wichita Collegiate dual threat quarterback Wesley Fair is also committed to Kansas State, though as an Athlete. Fair is a two-time 3A SIK offensive player of the year finalist. He cleared more than 2,000 yards of total offense. He is the state’s No. 6 recruit, per 24/7.
Dylan Hamilton, Kapaun Mt. Carmel
KMC advanced to the 5A state semifinal and returns a bevy of star talent with QB Dylan Hamilton, RB Omari Elias and WR Will Anciaux. Hamilton had 1,000-plus yards and 14 scores. Elias cleared 2,000 rushing yards, while Anciaux has committed to Kansas State. The Crusaders are a legit contender for its first state title since the ‘80s. KMC went 10-2 and averaged 39.8 points a game, second-best in 5A.
Branton DeWeese, Washburn Rural
Branton DeWeese has picked up a Washburn offer. He helped the Junior Blues win its first Centennial League title since 1996. DeWeese completed 135 of 204 passes for 1,640 yards with 21 scores against three interceptions. WR finished 8-2 and delivered 35.1 points a game in 6A.
Dylan Dunn, Blue Valley Southwest
Dylan Dunn enjoyed a massive season for Blue Valley Southwest in the Eastern Kansas League. As a sophomore, Dunn completed 204 of 322 passes for 2,587 yards with 19 scores against 10 interceptions. BVSW is long known for its passing attack – it threw for 2,616 yards and rushed for 792 as a team. BVSW finished 4-7 and averaged 21.9 points a contest. He set single season school records for passing yards and touchdowns. Dunn passed for 558 yards in a playoff game.
Gabe Welch, Arkansas City
Welch is 6’2” and 193 pounds entering his senior season. He’s a very athletic QB with a high football IQ. He had a huge sophomore season in leading his team out of nowhere to a runner-up finish in 4A in 2020. Last year he helped lead AC to a victory over Maize in week four, the eventual 5A state runner up, with 28/35 passing for 258 yards and a two total TDs.
Dalton Whitworth, Rock Creek
Rock Creek enjoyed a sizable climb from 5-3 to 7-4 under Shane Sieben, who has enjoyed great success with RC football and baseball programs. RC, a KPreps Potential Breakout team last season, opened 0-2 with losses to powers Silver Lake and Rossville. Then, RC won seven of eight before a 42-26 loss to eventual state runner-up Frontenac. Rock Creek scored 34.6 points a game, which ranked eighth in 3A. After 11 games, Whitworth led Kansas in passing with 2,894 yards. He returned multiple key weapons, including Yanci Spiller, Ethan Burgess and Daegen Vinduska. RC listed just six seniors on its roster last winter.
Landon Boss, Osage City
Osage City senior Landon Boss is among the state’s top football and multi-sport athletes. He completed 74 of 125 passes for 1,378 yards with 16 touchdowns. Boss rushed 62 times for 635 yards and 15 scores. OC finished 8-2, went 5-0 at home and averaged 43.4 points a game, second-best in 2A. Boss has an Emporia State football offer. He has exceeded 1,000 career points in basketball and threw javelin at US Outdoor Nationals.
Hudson Ferralez, Hesston
In eight games, Hesston’s Hudson Ferralez threw for 2,436 yards, which ranked top-5 in Kansas as a sophomore. Hesston finished 4-5 and tallied 29.9 points a game, No. 18 out of 48 squads in 3A. He completed 193 of 274 passes with 27 touchdowns.
Keenan Schartz, Manhattan
Schartz had a solid junior campaign in 2021 and will be one of the top players returning in the Centennial League for 2022. He passed for over 700 yards while rushing for 926 more for 16 total TDs last season
Luke Gebhardt, SE Saline
SES senior Luke Gebhardt enjoyed a huge junior year with 162 of 231 passing for 2,389 yards with 31 touchdowns against five interceptions. He rushed 100 times for 596 yards and 12 scores. Southeast finished 11-1 and ranked second in 3A. The Trojans move down to 2A this fall and will be a high contender. SES was second behind Andale in 3A scoring offense and defense with 48 points a game and 7.5 points allowed.
Keller Hurla, St. Marys
St. Marys is expected to be a strong 2A contender. Hurla helped St. Marys to a state runner-up basketball showing and exceeded 50 points in a contest. In football, he completed 94 of 153 passes for 1,581 yards with 15 scores against two interceptions. He rushed 109 times for 490 yards and 11 scores. St. Marys was sixth in 2A with 36.2 points a contest. Hurla is a standout 4-sport athlete that is one of the best small school QBs in the state of Kansas.
Hunter Alvord, McPherson
Hunter Alvord earned 4A Player of the Year honors in baseball for the state champion-winning Bullpups. Last fall, he helped McPherson to a 6-3 mark. He completed 96 of 147 passes for 1,442 yards with 12 scores against five interceptions. McPherson was eighth in 4A with 33.4 points a game.
DJ Dingle, Wichita Heights
Wichita Heights will bump to 6A after a 6-4 season that yielded 37.4 points a game, fifth-best in 5A. Senior DJ Dingle has started for several years. He completed 88 of 151 passes for 1,442 yards with 16 scores against three interceptions. Dingle had 73 carries for 450 yards and seven TDs. Heights, led by standout P5 running back recruit John Randle, averaged 8.4 yards per carry as a team last fall.
Logan Ladish, KC Piper
Ladish was hurt most of 2021. The senior is 6-2, 185. In four games, he completed 35 of 68 passes for 625 yards with eight scores against two interceptions. Ladish rushed 55 times for 297 yards and eight TDs. He threw the game-winning TD pass against Eudora in Week 2 on the game’s final play. Piper scored 56, 26, 23, and 23 points in the four games Ladish saw time.
Kade Harris, Thomas More Prep-Marian
Harris has been a huge piece in TMP’s turnaround the last two falls. In 2019 and ’20, the Monarchs have enjoyed its best seasons since 2002, including a run to the 2A quarterfinals. Harris will be a four-year starter for his dad, Jay. A three-sport athlete, Harris has several track medals and helped TMP basketball to back-to-back basketball final fours. TMP finished 8-3 and ranked No. 13 out of 48 teams in 2A with 29.6 points per game. Harris cleared 900 rushing and passing yards.
Matt Lierz, Holton
Lierz is more of an overall athlete but is one of the top 3A players in the state for Holton. He was a first team all-state selection as an athlete on defense last year for Holton. Holton returns key pieces that include Lierz, Grayson Booth, Jayden Fletcher and Jace Boswell (North Dakota commit).
Nolan Freund, Kingman
Freund helped Kingman to its best season since 1972 with a 2A state semifinal showing. Kingman is expected to be a strong contender again this fall. He passed for more than 2,100 yards. Kingman finished seventh in 2A with 36 points a contest.
Wyatt Spexarth, Andale
Andale has the state’s longest current winning streak at 38 games and has won three consecutive state titles. All 504 of Andale’s yards in the state game came from underclassmen. Spexarth rushed for a pair of touchdowns in the state title. Andale easily paced 3A in scoring offense.
Luke Niggemann, Girard
Niggemann plays in a run-heavy offense but has one of the best arms in the state. He’s looked very good at several combines we’ve seen him at over the last couple of seasons. He has great size at 6’3” and 205 pounds and we feel is one of the most underrated QB prospects in the entire state. He led Girard to an undefeated regular season last year before losing to Holton in the playoffs. He holds an offer from Pittsburg State.
Malachi Berg, Topeka West
Berg has delivered an impressive summer on the circuit and stands 6-3, 200 with a 405-pound squat. He has been offered by Sterling and Bethel.
Mac Armstrong, Bishop Miege
Armstrong enjoyed a big year for Bishop Miege in 2021. Against easily 4A’s toughest strength of schedule, the Stags finished No. 15 with 27.4 points a game. Miege likes to air it out and Armstrong will be one of the best returning players in 4A. 4A East is quite loaded this season including Miege, St. James, Aquinas, and up and coming Chanute.
Eric Erbe, Chanute
Chanute is a highly intriguing team this fall. The Blue Comets went 8-2 and finished second in 4A with 38.5 points a game. Chanute paced 4A, 5A and 6A with just 8.8 points allowed. He completed 62 percent of his passes for 1,718 yards with 21 passing TDs, four rushing scores and seven interceptions. Chanute is loaded with talent and speed; Erbe was part of the state title 400 relay that set a school record in 42.99.
DaeOnte Mitchell, Wichita East
Mitchell was a highly talented player entering high school and has started both his freshman and sophomore seasons. He passed for 1,920 yards with 26 scores against two interceptions. Mitchell rushed for 600 yards against nine interceptions. East was ninth in 6A with 35.2 points a game.
Mason McGavran, Olathe West
OW finished 7-3 and advanced to the 6A state quarterfinals. He passed for 1,326 yards and 11 scores and rushed for 1,232 yards with 14 TDs. West finished eighth in 6A with 35.5 points a contest.
St. James Academy, Wichita Northwest, Bishop Carroll, Derby, Rossville, Silver Lake, Blue Valley Northwest, Frontenac, Andover Central, Olpe
The Thunder have been one of the most impressive teams in Kansas the last two seasons but lose their starting QB Jackson House after moving to Louisiana, where his dad, Matt, will be the defensive coordinator for LSU. We feel like whoever will end up the QB at St. James is a contender to be on this list. Wichita Northwest loses Geremiah Moore and Derby loses Mercer Thatcher. Bishop Carroll has a long list of QBs over the years that are always in contention to be 5A all-state. Silver Lake loses another Kruger and Rossville loses another Horak. Damon Redeker graduates from Olpe after earning 1A POY. Mikey Pauley had one of the best years in 6A football history in leading the BVNW Huskies to a first ever title but hes now at Nebraska playing for the Cornhuskers (baseball/football). Frontenac and Andover have had very good play at the position as well and both were in a title game a year ago. Who steps up for all of these power programs in 2022?
The amount of talented eight-man quarterbacks returning is staggering. This is an extremely deep group that will likely yield increased offensive numbers from last season. In 2021, nine Eight-Man, Division I teams averaged at least 50 points a contest and two others were at 49. Twelve teams tallied at least 47 a contest.
In 2020, five teams averaged at least 47. D1 teams averaged 33.6 points a contest in ’20 and 35.7 points last season.
Keiondre Smith, South Sumner (Caldwell/South Haven) – South Sumner is a definite Eight-Man, Division I contender. Caldwell and South Haven, which play together in junior high, formed together for high school under longtime Caldwell coach Sean Blosser. Caldwell was second in D2 in scoring offense with 50.4 points a contest. Smith has delivered back-to-back huge football seasons and had great success in basketball and track, including the 1A 300-meter hurdle crown this spring. He threw for 899 yards with 15 scores against five interceptions, and rushed 223 times for 2,027 yards and 33 scores.
Aiden Amrein, Hill City – Amrein pilots what could be the preseason No. 1 in Division I. A two-time state wrestling medalist, Amrein helped HC to a 10-2 record, first district title in school history and 51.8 points a contest. In his sophomore season – and first healthy year of high school football – Amrein threw for 1,689 yards with 32 scores against nine interceptions. He also rushed 237 times for 1,558 yards and 24 scores.
Garrett Maltbie, Canton-Galva – A three-year starter, Maltbie and new receiver Jett Vincent headline C-G. The Eagles will be top-2 in preseason in Division II. Vincent had more than 1,000 receiving yards and was D2 SIK Defensive player of the year last fall at Wheatland-Grinnell. C-G went 9-2 with both losses to Little River and averaged 53.5 points a contest. Maltbie threw for 2,090 yards with 33 scores against two interceptions. In his career, he has 3,528 passing yards with 58 scores versus six INTs.
Erhik Hermosillo, Leoti-Wichita County – In a transition year for WC, the Indians, with head coach and offensive mastermind Brant Douglas, still led the classification with 55.8 points a contest. Hermosillo started on defense for the state runner-up squad in ’20. He completed 130 of 202 passes for 1,771 yards with 24 scores against nine interceptions. Hermosillo rushed 245 times for 1,450 yards with 25 TDs.
Owen Day, WaKeeney-Trego – Day helped Trego to a plus-seven win improvement and 51.6 points per game in his first season as a starter. He had missed 2020 with injury. He finished 85 for 149 with 1,048 yards with 15 scores and 10 interceptions in eight games. Day rushed 85 times for 496 yards and nine TDs.
Isaac Detweiler, Axtell – Axtell went undefeated and won the D2 state title. Detweiler, known for his intelligence, is the reigning D2 Offensive Player of the Year. Axtell finished 13-0 and won its second all-time state title, first since 1993. Axtell had no seniors in key roles last year. He completed 124 of 164 passes for 1,984 yards with 34 TDs against two interceptions. Detweiler finished with 207 carries for 1,273 yards and 29 rushing scores. Axtell led D2 with 54.2 points a contest.
Thaddeus Wohler, Victoria – Wohler played well at quarterback and is expected to take over full-time after Grant Schoenrock graduated. Wohler and TE Seth Schwien, who are close cousins, are a strong combination for the Knights. Victoria was a D2 semifinalist and ranked third in the classification with 48.9 points a game.
Rylan Konen, Little River – Little River won state in 2020 and earned runner-up to Meade in ’21. LR has not lost at home in the three-year Kevin Ayers era. Konen completed 45 of 97 passes for 890 yards with 15 scores against three INTs. He delivered 109 carries for 906 yards for 19 scores. All of LR’s 3,172 rushing yards came from non-seniors.
Mitch Budke, Chase County – Chase County finished fifth in D1 with 52.5 points a game. Budke has been a huge dual threat. In his career, Budke has 3,126 rushing, 1,710 passing, 332 tackles. He delivered 2,000 rush and 50-plus TDs as a junior.
Dylan Bice, Thunder Ridge – Bice is a superb two-way player for Thunder Ridge, a D2 semifinalist. He has more than 2,360 yards of total offense in each of the last two seasons. Overall, Bice has accounted for 5,544 yards with 26 passing and 43 rushing scores. TR went 10-1 and delivered 52.3 points a contest.
Max Neeley, Dighton – A 1A state pole vault champion, Neeley helped Dighton enjoy a huge turnaround last fall. In his junior year, Neeley completed 72 of 125 passes for 995 yards with 15 touchdowns against six interceptions. He rushed 224 times for 1,588 yards and 31 scores. Dighton was ninth in D2 with 43.4 points a contest.
Tray Schroeder, Norwich – The junior enters his third season as a starter. Norwich is a big eight-man contender behind Schroeder and highly athletic TE/DE Jace Gosch.
Colby Middleton, Burlingame – He accounted for 33 touchdowns as a junior and hang cleaned 285 at mid summer testing. Middleton rushed for 1,200 yards and passed for 700 for veteran coach Jeff Slater. Burlingame delivered a 6-3 record and 39.3 points a contest, which ranked No. 22 out of 48 Division I teams.
Zac Fisher, Onaga – Fisher flies under the radar for Onaga, which finished 4-5, though took competitive losses to Hanover and Frankfort (28-22 OT). A senior, he passed for 340 yards with a 7/5 TD/INT ratio and delivered 164 carries for 1,131 yards and 19 TDs.
Ryan Kuckelman, Macksville – A superb three-sport athlete, Kuckelman passed for 614 yards with a 9/2 TD/INT ratio, along with 232 carries for 1,464 yards and 21 scores. He has great size standing at 6’5”.
Six-Man is expected to be relatively wide-open this fall. An influx of new teams, headlined by Peabody-Burns (4-4 last fall) comes into six-man. This year marks the first KSHSAA six-man season. State champion Natoma took big graduation losses, though QB Roy Bright returns. Runner-up Cunningham returns all its skill players.
Roy Bright, Natoma – Bright showed nice touch on deep passes as a freshman. He completed 39 of 59 passes for 781 yards with 15 scores against two interceptions. Natoma went undefeated and won its first football title in school history. Natoma led six-man with 61.4 points a game.
Luke McGuire, Cunningham – As a sophomore, Luke completed 46 of 72 passes for 729 yards with 18 scores against three interceptions. He rushed 76 times for 690 yards and 11 TDs. McGuire was banged up early in the state title game loss, which significantly affected Cunningham’s chances. Luke plays for his dad, longtime Cunningham coach Lance McGuire. Cunningham was fourth at 53.2 points a contest.
Logan McCarty, Cheylin – Cheylin was state runner-up and state champion in ’19 and ’20 before a drop-off last year. However, the Cougars are expected to be a strong contender since all of its offensive yards came from non-seniors. McCarty, a junior, completed 100 of 163 passes for 1,345 yards with 23 scores against six interceptions in eight games. He rushed 76 times for 551 yards and 12 TDs. McCarty and WR Pablo Bermudez are a nice tandem. Cheylin averaged 37.5 points a game.
Ashland duo – Ashland lost in the state semifinals to Natoma. The Bluejays had no seniors as key offensive playmakers. Ashland uses two quarterbacks with sophomore Lathan McPhail and junior Britt Grigsby. McPhail threw for 328 yards with seven TDs against two interceptions.
