Ethan Douglas Talks of Decision

Ethan Douglas, a massive offensive lineman from Basehor-Linwood, Kansas, has committed to play for coach Ron Prince and the Kansas State Wildcats. Douglas talks with Scout.com about his decision.

"I went to their camp, and the coaches talked to me afterward. I found out when I got home that night I had an offer from them," Ethan Douglas said of Kansas State.

"I was very excited about the offer. I talked it over with my parents and my coach. We all knew it was the best decision for me. They said to go with it. I accepted the offer that night."

"I grew up liking K-State. It's just the way it has always been. I have always wanted to play there. It's a personal goal I always wanted to achieve."

The 6-foot-7, 285-pound prospect knows the position he prefers as he stated, "They recruited me as an offensive lineman. I told them I would like to play left tackle because that is always what I have played. I think that is where I will end up."

Douglas knows his strengths and what he hopes to improve.

"I feel like my kick step back and blocking a guy is my best attribute. I am trying to improve my speed and strength. I have made so much gain with my foot speed over the past year, and I want to keep getting better," he said.

"It's a lot of worry off my mind. I was getting worried because I didn't have any other offers. I have nothing to worry about. I can go out and kick ass my senior year. I have a place to go. It feels great. I am finished with all my visits."
