"Nothing compared to K-State."

Logan Dold, three-star safety prospect and Kansas State signee from Garden Plain, Kansas, will arrive in Manhattan this weekend. Dold will get a shot on offense after a successful senior season. Dold updates the latest news about his next career move.

Logan Dold, running back, Height: 6 ft. Weight: 200 lbs. Max bench: 315 lbs.

Academic status:
"I'm cleared academically. I move up this Saturday, and my first day of classes is June 9. I'm not real sure about either of these, but I think I got around a 3.5 or 3.6 on my GPA, and I think I scored about an 18 or 19 on the ACT."

Thoughts of off-season work-outs:
"Right now I'm just doing stuff out of the work-out book they gave us. It's a lot of core workouts and lower body reps. It's tough, but I'm looking forward to working out with the team starting this Saturday."

Starting position:
"I'm starting out at running back. Originally they recruited me as a safety, then after my senior year they decided they'd start me out at running back."

What he wants to improve about his game:
"I think the biggest thing is my footwork and my overall ability to change direction."

Expectations for himself and the team this coming season:
"I really don't know. I'm just hoping to play somewhere on the field, even on special teams. I just want to help the team out somewhere. I think we can compete for a Big 12 championship. Last year we lost a bunch of close games and got a bunch of injuries, so hopefully that's all behind us now."

Expected jersey number:
"I find out sometime this next week."

"Joseph Kassanavoid."

Where he would have signed if not Kansas State:
"I really have no idea. I committed so early I really don't know."

Teammates he stayed in contact the most:
"I talk to Joseph Kassanavoid almost every day. I also keep up with Travis Tannahill."

When he knew Kansas State was the place to commit:
"Just after I finished looking at some other schools and going on a couple of visits. I've always been a K-State fan, and after going around and looking, nothing compared to K-State."
