Andrew Richards looking forward to Visit

Current Wildcat commit Andrew Richards is slotted to take his official visit to Manhattan this weekend in what has already shaped up to be the Cats biggest recruiting weekends. Richards, a two star rated wide receiver prospect from Keller (Texas) who committed to K-State in July, will be one of many Wildcat commits in Manhattan this weekend.

I had a chance to speak with Andrew's father, Mike Richards last night in regards to his son's impending visit to Manhattan.

"I know that Andrew is really excited to get down there. You know we have been to campus before and when Andrew was there for camps he met some of the current kids that have committed and he is looking forward to seeing some of them again."

In terms of where Andrew stands with his commitment to Kansas State, Mike said his son just does not get any more committed then he is and that they have not once looked anywhere else but to Manhattan.
"I think Andrew would tell you that there is no chance he would look anywhere. We are really happy with our commitment to Kansas State. You know we had talked about this earlier but Andrew is just about as solid as you could get. We have shut down other schools and Kansas State is it for him."

In talking with Mike, it just cannot be understated the quality of recruits both athletically and otherwise that Coach Snyder has recruited for the Wildcats. Coach Snyder certainly has a great football player and person coming to Manhattan and in speaking with Mike- you cannot help but excited to see what Andrew will do in his career as a Wildcat.

"You know Andrew is not the type of guy who will call other recruits openly and try and get them to come to Manhattan but he has formed some relationships with some of the other recruits on his visits and once again we just could not be happier with his choice and K-State."

As far as commitments go, without saying I think everyone can see Andrew wants to be a Wildcat. At 6-foot -2 and 200 pounds with 4.4 speed, Richards is the tall and rangy wide receiver that many college football coaches covet. Recruited by many of the Big 12 schools, Richards committed to the Cats in July after visiting Manhattan and camping in one of the summer camps.
