California QB eliminates K-State

With Signing Day just around the corner, one Wildcat Prospect informed the coaching staff he has eliminated the Cats from contention.

Quarterback is a pressing need for the Cats in this recruiting class, as Kansas State signed only one QB to a scholarship last year. Looking to the state of California, the Wildcat coaching staff slotted to bring in UCLA commit Ossar Rasshan for an official visit to Manhattan.

That visit will not happen and Ossar has informed the Coach Miller and the K-State Coaching staff he has eliminated Kansas State from his list.

"I called the Kansas State coaches probably on Wednesday and let them know that I am not going to be making a trip there. They were a little disappointed," Rasshan told KStateFans.

Currently committed to UCLA, Rasshan has narrowed his choices down to San Diego State and UCLA.

"Distance was really the most important deciding factor for me. Right now I have it down to UCLA and San Diego State and will end up deciding between those two schools. I am not going to take any more visits."

Asked if baseball played a deciding factor in his decision, Ossar said that it might.

"Right now the only way I play baseball is to play at San Diego State but I have decided against everything else (MLB) and will go to college."

In terms of offense, Ossar did say the Wildcat offense was appealing to him and his style of play.

"My visit with Coach Snyder was a very good visit. It went really well and they have a good offense that I thought I would be a fit in."

As far as other factors being at play in his decision not to make a trip to K-State, Rasshan says it really just came down to distance and family for him.

"Really it was just about the distance. That was probably the biggest factor in my decision."

As for a decision, Ossar said he is going to take his time and speak with his family before making a decision and stay close to home.
