Houston Yates Linebacker- Tyrell Graham is another talented and speedy linebacker that Kansas State brought into Manhattan last weekend in an effort to recruit to a specific recruiting need for the Cats. At 6-foot-4 and 205 pounds, Graham has the height and frame to grow into a linebacking spot at K-State. With the commitments of Rosel and Walker, many are left wondering where Graham falls in the mix.
"Kansas State- well they have not contacted me since my trip to there last weekend. I am not really sure what that says but I know that they said they were going to keep recruiting me and I did not commit or anything on my trip but when I left there- Kansas State was my top school," said Graham late Tuesday evening.
In terms of who the current leaders for his services are, Graham who had just wrapped up an in-home visit with Arkansas' new Defensive Coordinator Reggie Herring listed Kansas State and Arkansas as dead even.
"Man it is like this- when I left Kansas State- they were my team. They were at the top but now with Arkansas coming in here- it is tough to choose. Right now they are so close. If I had to choose I couldn't do it. Right now they are both dead even. Really I could not pick between them but this visit has opened my eyes to some things. "
As many already know, last weekend was critical to K-State recruiting efforts as many of the visitors have expressed high interest in the Wildcats and others are expected to make decisions shortly. With the commitment of two other linebackers early in the week, Graham says the recent editions will not affect his decision.
"Nah, I am glad for them but I got to think about what I do and what I can do. I am not sure where this puts me with them, Kansas State has not called me to let me know anything since my visit but they said they would keep recruiting me and I just got to keep on."
As far as his trip to Manhattan last weekend, Tyrell had this to say:
"My trip to Kansas State was good. I would probably give it a 7 or an 8. Probably maybe a 7 ½ for the visit it was really good. I have not seen a 10 yet."
In terms of a decision forthcoming, Graham says we take a visit to Arkansas and will look to make a decision sometime in January after weighing his options.
"Well I really want to go to Arkansas and see what is up out there. Their new DC told me a lot of stuff that K-State didn't and I think that really got to me. I mean this guy (Herring) came from the Texans and then when he coached at NC State, he took that defense to the top in the country. They have just told me some things that K-State did not and I know that he (Herring) knows his stuff come from the NFL. I will take my trip out there, check it out and then sometime in January make my pick," said Graham.
Tyrell has yet to nail down a visit date for his trip to Arkansas, only saying it will come sometime in mid to late January.
