Kansas commit Bobby Hartzog took his official visit to Kansas this past weekend. The Houston (TX) Westside wide receiver had committed to the Jayhawks two weeks prior to the visit.
He got a good taste of his future during the trip to Lawrence.
"The visit to Kansas was great," he said. "Everyone was really nice and I felt right at home from the time I arrived on campus."
"I got to meet with a lot of the staff including Coach (Charlie) Weis," he added. "I attended their game against Oklahoma. I got a tour of the dorms and the academic and athletic facilities. We also got to walk around the town of Lawrence and the rest of the campus. It was just a nice experience."
Hartzog explained what the coaching staff has told him and how he will be used once he steps on campus permanently.
"They said a lot of positive things about how they believe I can fit into their football program," he noted. "They believe in my playmaking ability. They also stress academics and told me that I would be pushed in both areas, on and off the field. I thought that was really cool and I appreciated it."
The Houston native has been committed to two other schools throughout his recruiting cycle so it has been unclear how firm he was in his pledge to Kansas.
Utah and Houston were unable to hang onto his commitment. Will the Jayhawks?
"I am 110 percent committed to Kansas," Hartzog cleared up. "I love what they have to offer and I am ready to be done and I'll remain loyal to Coach Weis and his staff."
"I will not visit anywhere else," he continued. "I love Kansas. I am focused on my senior year and getting my team to the playoffs. I just want to have fun with the time I have left in high school and enjoy graduation and all the other stuff that comes with it."
