Ben Nikkel became the fourth McPherson High football player to be listed on’s  watch list for upcoming season.

Nikkel was rated as the No. 5 cornerback by the Wichita-based website. Wyatt Seidl, Jayse Alexander and Kollin Goering also have been on the watch list, Seidl as a defensive lineman, and Alexander and Goering at linebackers.

Here is what the website said about Nikkel, whose stock rose at the Jake Sharp camp earlier this summer in Salina where he was named the MVP.

“Nikkel is back with a strong senior class for the Bullpups after grabbing four interceptions and 26 tackles as a junior. His interceptions came against Maize South, Wamego, Andale and Augusta.”
