Offensive guard Colten Freeze committed to K-State very early in the recruiting process and was anxious to arrive in Manhattan. Are his plans still the same?
"I'm still committed to Kansas State," said Freeze, a 6-7, 270-pound lineman from Liberty, Mo. "At this point that's still where I'm planning on going to school."
At this point?
"Well, I have been hearing from a few other schools. None of them have offered yet, but I'm going to listen. It can't hurt to hear what they have to say.
"I've heard from Missouri, Iowa and Nebraska in a pretty recent period of time," he said. "I'm not sure if they're planning on offering or how that would affect me. Kansas State was the first school to offer and the only so far, so I'm not sure how I would react to having several options."
Freeze's frame and versatility have made him an attractive prospect to colleges across the region. At 6-7 he has the ability to gain a lot of weight. He has also spent time playing on the defensive line at times, so he is not lacking in athleticism.
"I've really tried to work on improving my technique this year. Last year I was just going out and trying to get the job done. That's okay up to a point, but I've become more of a perfectionist. I'm not going to just push people around in the Big XII so I've tried to get better at hand placement, staying lower and getting off the ball quicker."
Freeze said he will take an official visit to K-State soon but does not have a specific date. Would he take an official to another school, if they were to offer?
"That's really up in the air at this point, and it's not productive for me to even think about it. K-State is my only offer right now and it's a school I'm planning on attending. Unless one of those other schools offers it won't matter."
