And The Winner Is.... One More Week

It's between Kansas State and Utah now. Texas' top RB Parrish Fisher is set to announce committment over the weekend.

A decision will come this week from running back and Texas product Parrish Fisher. The two-star tailback has narrowed his list down to two, Kansas State and Utah.

"That's pretty much it for me at this point," he said. "I hope to make my decision over the weekend and announce next week. It's a hard choice because both schools have great programs. They each offer something different and have things the other doesn't have. I just need to decide what's best for me."

Fisher, who had over 1,400 yards and 15 touchdowns this season, is intrigued by the idea of spending a year behind Darren Sproles at K-State learning the system.

"They're doing so many good things at K-State, winning the Big 12, 11 wins in six of the last seven years," he said. "And after next year Sproles' position is up for grabs. He's a great running back. Anyone can learn from that guy. And just playing in the Big 12 alone every week would be a great opportunity."

But Fisher, who visited the Wildcats December 12 and was hosted by Sproles, is very interested in Utah's rising program, much like recruits were in the early 1990s with Bill Snyder and K-State. Utah offers that sense of being part of something special, the building of a program.

"They are very up-and-coming," Fisher said. "It's their first year there and they're building a great program. They're starting to get a lot of attention from recruits and getting the players they want in their program. It's real exciting up there."
