Dayton Valentine to greyshirt at K-State

By RecruitingNation

Athlete Dayton Valentine (Baldwin City, Mo./Baldwin) has accepted a greyshirt offer from Kansas State, multiple sources report.

Valentine will enroll in classes in the fall, but will not sign a scholarship with the school until January 2014. He explained his situation to the Baldwin City Signal: "I'll work out with the team this summer. I can only enroll in 12 hours next fall. I can't be affiliated with the team in the fall, or I'll lose a semester of eligibility.  Beginning January of 2014, I'll have a full-ride scholarship."

As a senior, Valentine caught 16 passes for 309 yards and two touchdowns. On defense, he recorded 45 tackles, eight for loss and four sacks. He also excels at track; he won 4A state titles in the discus and shot put last spring.
