Kansas State Adds Grigsby To Recruiting Class

A week after K-State offensive coordinator Greg Peterson was in Romunn Grigsby's living room, the 6-foot-5 receiver committed to the Wildcats during his official visit.

Kansas State added Ohio receiver Romunn Grigsby to its recruiting class Saturday. Grigsby, a two-star receiver, but heavily underrated, committed to the Wildcats during his recruiting visit over the weekend.

Meeting head coach Bill Snyder in person is all Grigsby needed to make his decision.

"I had heard so many good things about coach Snyder, but didn't get to meet him until this weekend," he said. "He's a great man. Once I knew he wasn't just interested in me for football, I knew Kansas State was the place for me. He cares a lot for his players."

Grigsby, who had 67 receptions for 1,244 yards and 13 touchdowns this season, visited Pittsburgh last week and had another visit scheduled with Wisconsin next week, which has now been cancelled.

"It's a lot of weight lifted off my shoulders now," he said. "I'm just going to focus on my school and work out to get bigger and faster for next year. It was real fun going through the recruiting process, but I'm glad it's over."

K-State receiver Antoine Polite was Grigsby's host on the visit to Manhattan, and the 6-5 wide-out even developed a relationship with quarterback Dylan Meier.

"We hung out and they showed me around everywhere," he said. "It was getting to know Meier since he's going to be battling for quarterback next year. I think we have something started already for next year."

Grigsby also was concerned with the rumor of KSU running back Darren Sproles leaving early for the NFL. Sproles, yet again, silenced the talk.

"I wanted to make sure he's going be around for another year," he said. "He's a great player and I want to play with that guy. I'm glad he's going to be there."

The addition of Grigsby makes the second receiver to commit to the Wildcats in as many weeks. Yamon Figurs of Garden City Community College committed over the Thanksgiving holiday.
