Dylan Scott Wentzel (b. June 3, 1998) walked on from Salina High School Central as a running back, but redshirted in 2017 and converted to wide receiver during the offseason.

His only statistical note from the 2018 spring game was a dropped pass from fourth- or fifth-string quarterback Ryan Henington as a member of the White squad.

Wentzel played against UTSA, but did not record any statistics in the 2018 season.

He played under head coach Mike Hall at Salina Central, where he was a two-time all-district honoree who also played basketball, a state qualifier in track and field, the student council president, and an all-state academic performer.

Both of Wentzel’s parents attended K-State and he is majoring in biochemistry with the hope of becoming an orthopedic surgeon.
