Nebraska native likes the Wildcats, awaits offer

Omaha linebacker Andy Keith is still waiting for offers, but has huge interest in Kansas State right now. He's hoping his senior season will prove his worth. However, in addition to the Wildcats, Keith has his eyes on three other Big 12 programs.

He says his best asset is that he plays with a lot of emotion and makes others around him play better.

That might be exactly what Kansas State needs these days. But unfortunately, the Wildcats have yet to offer Andy Keith.

Keith, a 6-foot-1 220 pound linebacker from Omaha, Neb., doesn't have any offers yet, but lists K-State, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, and Iowa in his top five.

"Kansas is coming after me pretty heavy, probably the most of anyone," said Keith, who has three sacks and one interception this season for Creighton Prep. "They're sending me a lot of stuff and staying in touch the most."

However, K-State is no stranger to Keith either.

He's talked with linebacker coach Chris Cosh and attended K-State's Junior Day. Keith also took in the one-day camp in Wichita this past summer, but didn't perform as well as he had hoped.

"I wasn't happy with it," he said. "I'm hoping I can show schools what I can do over the course of my season."

And though Keith liked what he saw in K-State's campus, what really caught his eye was the organization of the Wildcat coaching staff.

"I really like the atmosphere," said Keith, who also plays fullback. "They're in control of everything and know what's going on. Everyone's on the same page there. And they really do a good job of making everyone feel like part of the family."

Keith said he plans to visit K-State, Missouri, and KU—when the Jayhawks play Nebraska.
