Something Exciting and New

If anyone out there was wondering how Ron Prince was going to fair in his first full year in the trenches, battling other Big XII schools in the recruiting wars, no need to worry, Prince is doing a fantastic job and he's got the verbal commitments to prove it. Missouri's Colten Freeze is one of Prince's early pledges.

"Coach Prince and his staff are starting something new and I want to be a part of that." Colten Freeze said.

"Coach Prince is building something from the ground up and I'm excited as can be. I probably could have waited things out but I went down there on an official visit and just loved it.

"I think Wednesday of last week is when Kansas State offered me a scholarship and I gave them my commitment on Saturday. That's how sold I was on Coach Prince and the program at Kansas State."

Freeze, a 6-foot-7, 270-pounder, from Liberty, Mo., started every game as a junior at right guard and will move to left tackle in 2006.

"I'll play anywhere I'm asked," Freeze said. "I just want to help my team. I love pulling and trapping, getting out on the linebackers. I think I'm good at pass protection but I'm not satisfied. I'm going to work hard at getting better in the off-season."

Freeze was an all-conference selection in 2005. Colten told that he'll be starting on both sides of the football as a senior. He's also a very good student, carrying a 3.3 GPA in the classroom.

Iowa State, Missouri and Kansas all had a serious interest in Colten Freeze.
