Michael Beasley Firmly Committed

There is little doubt where Michael Beasley is headed next season. Despite Bob Huggins' departure from Kansas State, the 6-foot-9 skilled forward said he's "115 percent" certain of where he wants to be.

Michael Beasley is sure he's headed to Kansas State.

How certain?

``One-hundred and fifteen percent," said the 6-foot-9 senior.

According to sources, there will some uncertainty whether or not Beasley would try and get out of his letter of intent after Kansas State coach Bob Huggins left for West Virginia.

However, once the Wildcats gave the job to assistant Frank Martin and Delonte Hill was promoted to associate head coach, that sealed the deal for Beasley.

``I really like the school and the fans, but that was it for me," Beasley said.

Beasley, who has a long relationship with Hill and actually gave Charlotte a verbal commitment years ago while Hill was an assistant under Bobby Lutz, said that numerous programs tried to contact him shortly after learning that Huggins was leaving Manhattan, Kan., last week.

Beasley will team with Bill Walker at Kansas State to give the Wildcats one of the most talented teams in the Big 12.

``I'm looking forward to it," Beasley said.

Beasley was a key factor in leading Notre Dame Prep (Mass.) to a prep school national title this season. Bill Barton's club knocked off Bridgton Academy in the first-ever National Prep Championship last month.
