Teahan Unsure of Future

If you're Conner Teahan, life is pretty good. A 6-4 senior at Kansas City (MO) Rockhurst, Teahan is one of the top basketball and football players in the city. On the basketball court he excels as a sharp shooting wing guard and on the football field he's a strong armed quarterback with quickness.

According to Conner Teahan, he’d probably prefer to play hoops on the college level. But, the offers are just starting to trickle in for each sport and the uncertainty has only made things more confusing.

“For football, Tulsa has basically said that if I come down there that they’ll offer me a scholarship,” Teahan told Phog.Net. “Kansas said they liked my tape but I don’t really know how serious they are. Kansas State was talking like they were going to offer because they only have two quarterbacks on the roster for next year but they haven’t done it yet.”

On the basketball side things have gotten even more interesting. After playing through an ankle injury much of the summer, he’s back at full strength and thriving as Rockhurst’s go-to guy. Kansas State boss Bob Huggins was in to watch two straight games last week, Wichita State has offered, Missouri had an assitant out recently and other schools like Tennessee and Mississippi have been expressing recent interest.

On top of that, Kansas is really pushing for him to walk on.

“I was just in Lawrence and spent time talking with the coaches,” said Teahan. “KU really wants me to walk on.”

According to Teahan, the Kansas staff has indicated that they would also try to find him a scholarship down the road.

“They’ll try to get me a scholarshp like a year or two down the road when things open up,” said Teahan. “They tell me that they could use my shooting.”

For now, Teahan is open to anybody who wants to take a look at him in either sport. However, he knows that he’ll have to make a decision soon enough.

So what will it be? Basketball or football?

“That’s a really tough question, I really don’t even know myself what I want to do,” said Teahan. “I feel like if I could develop my skills year round that I could play on any level in basketball. I haven’t been able to put in the time on my game others have because I’ve always been playing football.”
