Krehbiel Talks Commitment & Surgery

Scott Krehbiel, a 6-foot-7, 270-pound, offensive lineman, from Pratt, Kansas, gave Kansas State his verbal commitment. Krehbiel hasn't been able to make any official visits due to basketball and now he's recovering from knee surgery. We caught up with Krehbiel to ask him about his commitment to the Wildcats.

"I just decided after talking to Coach (Ron) Prince that it was in my best interest to commit to Kansas State." Scott Krehbiel said.

"I got a real good feeling about Coach Prince during our conversations. He's an enthusiastic guy and I feel he's going to be the right guy to get the program back on track.

"From every thing I've heard about Coach Prince, he's going to be great to play for plus he's bringing in a bunch of quality prospects in this year as well."

Krehbiel is a four-year letter winner at Pratt and was a three-year varsity starter on both sides of the football. Krehbiel was an all-state and an all-area selection as a senior. He was named the 4A Defensive Player of the Year as well.

Krehbiel was supposed to make his official visit to Manhattan this weekend but that might have to be put on the backburner.

"I tore my ACL and my MCL playing basketball." Krehbiel said. "I'm going to be rehabbing and my doctor told me that I should be able to start working out towards the end of the summer."

Krehbiel had scholarship offers from Kansas State, Kansas, Nebraska, Arkansas, Colorado State and Tennessee. He'll be playing offensive tackle at Kansas State.
