"100% Committed," Klieman said in a tweet.
Klieman, a 5-foot-8, 160-pound strong/free safety recorded 51 tackles, five for a loss, and an interception this season for Manhattan High School. He helped the Indians to a 9-2 record and the sectional round of the Class 6A playoffs, where they fell to Lawrence, 41-22.
Klieman was a first-team all-Centennial League selection at defensive back.
Kansas Wesleyan finished 11-2 this season and advanced to the NAIA Football Championship Series quarterfinals, before falling to Morningside, 58-21, on Nov. 27.
