KSU Signee: "I've been training back home."
Brandon Banks, wide receiver, kick off returner, height: 5-foot-8, weight: 155 lbs.
"My transcript has been sent to Kansas State, and I'm cleared to play. I'm not completely sure, but I think I finished (the spring) semester up with three As, a B and two Cs. I'm flying out to Kansas State next Saturday and begin classes on June 9."
"I've been training back home with some former high school teammates. I've just been running, lifting and trying to stay in shape."
What he wants to improve the most:
Expectations for the coming season:
"I just want to help K-State win a Big 12 championship. I'd like to go in, compete and get an opportunity just to get on the field and play."
Relationship with Coach Prince:
"I like Coach Prince a lot. It just feels like me and him have a connection. As a player, he likes my speed and my ability to make people miss and get into the end zone when I have the ball in my hand."
Where he would have signed if he didn't end up at Kansas State:
"Either Louisville or Kentucky."
Players he's kept up with the most:
"Josh Freeman, Deon Murphy, Adrian Hillburn."
Coach he's kept up with the most:
"I stay in touch with Coach Dave Brock regularly. He just likes to make sure I'm staying on top of my grades, and that I'll be ready to come out (to Kansas State) when classes start."
When he knew Kansas State was the right place for him:
"Probably about a week after I visited."
