Beebe Visits Kansas State

Saturday's visit to Kansas State left quite an impression on Colton Beebe. The 2015 linebacker from Piper High School in Kansas City, KS was in Manhattan for the Wildcats' matchup with West Virginia, and a closer look at Bill Snyder's program. Go Inside as Beebe talks about the Cats…

Piper linebacker Colton Beebe made his second visit to Kansas State on Saturday. The Kansas City, KS prospect watched as the Wildcats took down Big 12 foe West Virginia. The 2015 standout came away impressed with the entire K-State program.

"I thought it was good," he said of his visit to Manhattan. "It was a cool environment. The fans are crazy."

Beebe was sure to mention seeing the Wildcats' equipment room during his visit. He paid particular attention to how the most important pieces of protective gear are tailored to each player.

"They showed you a lot more than on the visit at KU. They have different helmets for practice and games, and they custom-fit shoulder pads for each player."

The talented LB didn't get to spend a lot of time with the K-State coaching staff, but did learn that he and his father have something else in common.

"They just introduced themselves," he said of the Kansas State staff. "They didn't really talk to any of the players. I talked to Coach Mo Lattimore, and the offensive coordinator, though. Coach Lattimore recruited my dad out of high school."

Beebe has been the backbone of the Pirate defense, racking up 101 tackles, seven tackles for loss, and two sacks in 2013. He's also chipped in with 376 total yards from the fullback position, scoring 10 touchdowns so far this season. Though most programs are recruiting him as a linebacker, Kansas State sees his future on offense.

"I went to one of their camps in the summer," he said of the Wildcats. "I worked out just as a linebacker. After, I was talking to Coach Lattimore. He said they still use a fullback, and are looking at both fullback or tight end for me."

After his visit, Beebe said there was one thing that stood out above all else about his visit to Kansas State.

"It would have to be the facilities," he said with a smile. "I think they look great. We went down there in fifth grade and played on the K-state field, and it's a lot different now. They talked about how they are going to do even more over the next few years."

"It felt like a family atmosphere. When you were walking down the tunnel, it just felt right."
