Cody Small takes his Official Visit to KSU

MANHATTAN, Kan. - Houston area product and Cypress Woods High School star Cody Small took his official visit to Kansas State this weekend.

Cody Small was in Manhattan during the weekend for his official visit with a group of committed players. The 6-foot-4, 240-pound tight end has been committed to the Wildcat program since last September. Small, who attends Houston area Cypress Woods High School, was only able to make one Kansas State game this season and was happy to be back in town.

"It was real good," said Cody Small on the visit. "We got there on Friday, and they took us out to eat at a little local joint called CoCo Bolos. Then they showed us around campus some. Later that night we had dinner will Bill Snyder."

It was Small's third visit to Manhattan. He was previously at a summer camp and visited for the Kansas State-Missouri game last October. Small made the trip with his mother and father.

"My player-host was Zach Trujillo, who is also a tight end," Small said. "He showed me all around campus and down Moro Street through Aggieville. Everybody said how homey Kansas State was and how friendly the people were, and that's exactly what I experienced. I met a lot of the players. They were all real cool and told me I could come up and hang out with them anytime."

Small will take a grayshirt until next January. However, he still plans on coming up during the summer and staying on campus.

"My recruiting coach is also going to be my position coach, so I've talked with Coach Dimel a lot," Small said. "I'll be up there taking classes in June, but my scholarship doesn't kick in until January."

Small chose Kansas State over offers from Wyoming, Rice, Air Force, and Navy. He said when he visited Manhattan everything just "clicked."

"When I gave my commitment it felt right," said Small. "It's awesome that Coach Snyder is back. I think with him as head coach it will be a program in contention every year for a Big 12 title. The people are so friendly and nice. It seems like we have a good recruiting class coming in. I believe there were seven of us here this weekend."

At Cy-Woods, Small was a unanimous First team All-District selection in Texas 5A Region III District 17. It wasn't at tight end, the position he was recruited for and played previously, but at defensive end where his team needed help.
