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.
