Position was of primary importance to Flannel during his recruitment. "I really like Tech because they are the only school that just wanted me for the offensive side of the ball. They only talked to me about playing running back and that's where I want to play."
Another factor in his decision was being able to contribute on offense. He especially likes Tech because "their running backs get a lot of touches per games."
He also had the chance to meet with Coach Leach and discuss how he would fit in with the team. "This was the first time I was able to sit down with Leach for an extended period of time. He's a real cool guy, very laid back."
Despite having offers from numerous other D1 schools, Jared Flannel is solid in his commitment to the Red Raiders. "I may still visit Missouri, but I haven't heard from them in a long time, so I think this is it."
