"My mom had already booked my plane ticket to come home for this weekend," Balwin said. "We tried to get it changed, but we couldn't. I called the coaches at Texas Tech and let them know what was up and they said we could reschedule it."
The 6-foot-3, 255-pound Baldwin is ranked as one of the top JUCO prospects in the country by Scout.com.
"My visit to Kansas State is still set for January 13. I will probably take my last two visits to BYU and Utah. The plan for me right now is to commit sometime around January 20 or so."
Kansas State has really turned up the full court press for Baldwin.
"They were in here yesterday and they were talking to my mom," Baldwin said. "We really liked coach Washington and all the things he had to say about Kansas State."
