K-State's Tysyn Hartman

Quarterback Tysyn Hartman, from Wichita-Kapaun Mt. Carmel, (Kansas) gave his verbal commitment to Kansas State in September and has been on campus several times this season. We caught up Thursday night to discuss any plans for other official visits.

"I have already been to three Kansas State games this year. I am going back for the Texas game. The atmosphere is great. I love it up there. In Kansas, Kansas State is football," Tysyn Hartman said.

We talked of other schools showing interest as well.

"I had received offers from schools like Air Force, Tulsa and KU," Hartman said. "Oklahoma was seriously talking to me. I am only taking an official visit to Kansas State. I will visit them December 8."

Hartman shared his reasons for choosing the Wildcats. "I decided to commit because I see bright things in the future for Kansas State," he said.

"They have great coaches at Kansas State. They have a lot of good incoming players, and I think they are going to be a very good football team."

Offensive coordinator James Franklin was in charge of Hartman's recruitment, and the bond is evident.

"Coach Franklin is an awesome guy. We have a very good relationship with each other. Actually all the coaches have a great relationship with each other. It is really good to see all the coaches getting along. It makes it a fun atmosphere to work in," Hartman said.

Hartman stands 6-3, 193-pounds and has led his team to a 5-4 record and a district championship.
