Kansas interested in FanFan

Junior college tight end Marvin FanFan may be close to his first offers. Utah State and Kansas are showing serious interest and it may only be a matter of time.

Junior college tight end Marvin Fanfan does not hold any offers as of now but that could all be about to change. FanFan has begun to receive increased interest from Kansas, Rutgers, Utah State, Akron, and Oklahoma.

The 6-foot-2, 245 pound tight end has been encouraged by his talks with the coaching staffs at Kansas and Utah State.

"I talk to Kansas quite a bit," he admitted. "They want to see film of my first three games. Utah State says that they will offer as soon as they get my transcripts and everything checks out."

"Kansas hasn't offered yet but I think they might," he added. "We just had our first game on Saturday. After we play our next two games I will send them the film from it. I hope they like what they see and offer me."

FanFan spoke about what has him interested in the Jayhawks and what he knows about them.

"I know Kansas has great tradition and are in the Big 12 conference," he pointed out. "Getting an offer from them would put them high on my list. They have Coach (Charlie) Weis and he's a terrific coach. He knows what it takes to get to the NFL and they're recruiting way better since he took over."

If an offer comes his way, it could move pretty fast for the ASA-College for Excellence prospect.

"I'm waiting to schedule a visit to Kansas right now," FanFan mentioned. "It is a place I want to see but I want to see if they offer first. If I like the visit enough, I want to be able to commit. I would rather wait for an offer because it is possible I may love it there and want to join their class."
