Webb City athlete KiAnte Hardin had a slow start in his recruiting process but it has picked up in a significant way for the Missouri standout. He projects to either contribute at slot wide receiver or the safety position at the next level, and definitely has a home waiting for him at the FBS level.
He shared the scholarships that have been extended to him so far.
"I have offers from Buffalo, Ball State, Army, Bowling Green, Minnesota, Murray State, Missouri State, Eastern Illinois, Austin Peay, and Pittsburg State," Hardin said.
Hardin also spoke about the feeling that the offers have finally begun to roll in.
"It feels great seeing all of my hard work paying off," he told Scout. "It's been a dream of mine since I was a little kid to play big-time college football. Now it's coming true."
The senior-to-be is approaching his recruitment with patience.
"I don't really have a frontrunner at this time," Hardin pointed out. "I'm just enjoying the moment right now. I need to get to know each program more before I start labeling anything."
A couple programs are hoping to have the Webb City prospect on camps for a visit soon, while others are expected to have him in to compete at their camp.
"Coach Kill from Minnesota and Coach Babers from Bowling Green want me in for unofficial visits if I can," Hardin shared. "I'll be busy with camps during June. I'll be competing at Missouri, Kansas State, Oklahoma State, and Arkansas."
"I also might camp at Tulsa, TCU, SMU, Auburn, or Iowa State," he added. "I have to narrow down those choices to two schools, though. That's all that will fit in my schedule."
Hardin admits that no schools have created any kind of separation for his services, but does have two programs he's intrigued about.
"I have pretty high interest in Bowling Green and Minnesota but I'm not set on any one team as of now."
