However, his commitment to Kansas State is even stronger now after his official visit to Manhattan this past weekend.
"The visit went great," said Kendall. "I had told everybody all along that I was a firm commitment to Kansas State, and I planned to give Kansas State first chance. I scheduled the Missouri visit in case I felt I needed something to compare, but after throughly checking out Kansas State, there is no need to visit anywhere else. My heart is at Kansas State and that is where I want to play football."
Kendall was given a extended opporunity to speak with Wildcat head man Ron Prince while on the visit.
"He's a great guy, and a great coach. I was a bit uneasy if he'd be able to handle the program coming into the visit, but I don't believe he will have any problem, at all, in handling the program. In fact, I think he is the right guy for the job. He has great values and great morals. I was extremely happy to find out just how much of a family man he is. He told me he is going to pay great attention to building relationships with his player so his assistant coaches can focus on their jobs," said Kendall.
Kendall was hosted by Wildcat defensive end Ian Campbell.
"Kansas State has great people, and I'm going to have great people. Campbell told me that the program was built a long time ago, and is still on solid base. He said no one has lost the will to win or the dedication required to do so, and they plan to get back on the winning track," stated Kendall.
