Heath 'Loves' His Decision

MANHATTAN, Kan. - The Kansas State Wildcats staff secured a commitment from Dominique Heath, a big-time playmaker from Hopewell High School in Huntersville, N.C. over the weekend.

After a visit to the Little Apple, the 5-foot-8, 165-pound slot receiver with seven D-1 offers to his credit was sold on leaving the Tarheel state to come to Manhattan.

"I went to campus Saturday to participate in the camp." Heath related to KStateFans.com. "I loved it. The coaches were down to earth. They joked around with me, but when it came down it to it they're all about business. I loved the facilities. Of course, I saw the field. The players told me how much the fans care about the football team. Driving around, I could tell it was a big football town. They're serious about the Wildcats.

"I started hearing from Kansas State last year as a junior. Coach Coleman was my recruiter. They want me to play slot receiver and running back like a Tavon Austin. They love my speed, playmaking ability, and how well I get in and out of my breaks."

Heath was named special teams Player of the Year in the 4A I-Meck Conference in the Charlotte area as a junior. He had 1200 yards receiving and 536 yards rushing for the Titans in 2012. At the National Underclassmen Combine in Charlotte, he was named the combine's M.V.P. Heath is looking to K-State receivers coach Andre Coleman to help take his game to the next level.

"Coach Coleman said he was going to turn me into a star. I like the way he coaches. He's all about business. The big thing is to listen and learn from him. The players have told me they've learned a lot for him already. He won't tell you how good you are, but keep coaching you to be as good as you can be."

Heath went to Kansas State with Mike Stevens, also from the Charlotte area who made a verbal pledge as well to the Wildcats. He plans to take his parents with him on his official visit to campus this fall. At Hopewell, Heath also participates in track and field and baseball.
