Asante Heading to Manhattan this Weekend

Must be a big game in town as some of the biggest recruits left on the board for the Cats are making their way to Manhattan this weekend. Larry Asante is the latest......

Larry Asante committed to K-State coming out of high school but ended up at Coffeyville Community College. Though much time has passed his interest in the Wildcats is still high.

"I'm visiting K-State this weekend for the Texas game," said Asante. "I'll be there for the game and I'll stay until Sunday. I'm looking forward to seeing everything. I know all I need to about the place, but they have a new staff and I want to see how things have changed."

While the ‘Cats have positioned themselves well with Asante several other schools are still in the picture.

"Right now it's about even between K-State, Nebraska, Texas A&M, Clemson, Arkansas and Virginia," he said. "On Nov. 24 I'm visiting Nebraska and I think I might visit those others too. I don't have any plans to yet, but I'd like to."

Coach Wallerstedt has been responsible for wooing Asante to Manhattan and the two have a good relationship. While recruiting is obviously on Asante's mind, finishing his season at Coffeyville is his foremost concern.

"I think we might have a bowl game, so there's a little bit of football left. That's what my main focus is right now. I know I led the team in tackles this year. I've improved a lot in coverage and I'm better at reading offenses now."

The 6-1, 220-pound prospect runs the 40-yard dash in 4.4 seconds and projects as a safety at the college level.
