Kansas Commit Headed to Athens?

Christian Ballard is a talented big man from Lawrence, Kansas. Scout caught up with the Kansas commitment today and discussed his thoughts on his senior year, visits and a time frame to totally firm up a commitment.

Christian Ballard's (6-4/276, Scout.com's #11 DE) team made the playoffs last year, and a large senior class has caused expectations to soar this year.

Ballard made an early commitment to Kansas, but will take a look at two National Powers before making a final decision. Ballard will take some visits before his season gets rolling though.

"My mom and I are flying down and will be in Athens this Saturday."

Georgia is currently recruiting Christian as a defensive tackle, and he is fine with that position. One team that has slipped some in Ballard's eyes is Oklahoma. Oklahoma is recruiting him as an offensive lineman.

Iowa has moved up and may be pushing past Oklahoma for a visit.

"Iowa is recruiting me as a tight end and I want to visit them."

Whatever Ballard's final decision is, it will come soon.

"I want to make a final decision by my team's second game."

Ballard is Scout.com's #11 ranked defensive end, but he will likely be ranked as a defensive tackle in the next set of rankings. The Jayhawks are currently in the drivers' seat, but could a visit to Athens change his mind? Stay Tuned...
