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.
