Banks Discusses Commitment To Kansas State
After a solid freshman season that saw Banks throw for 1,992 yards while completed 59.6% of his passes with 17 touchdowns and nine interceptions. He added 700 yards and 11 touchdowns rushing and helped lead the Comets to a 10-1 record.
"I am a dual-threat quarterback, but I can sit in the pocket and pick defenses apart," Banks told JCFootball.com.
While many schools showed interest, only one stepped forward with an early offer -- Kansas State. However, it wasn't for Banks to enroll next spring, it was for him to come in this summer.
"They were recruiting me at the end of spring," Banks noted. "They mentioned that they needed a quarterback and said they liked my film and had wanted to bring me in."
The talented quarterback took his official visit to Manhattan (Ks.) this past weekend and it didn't take long for him to decide to commit and sign.
"I chose to leave for a better opportunity for me and my family," Banks said. "It's also a better situation for me because this is what I have been Waiting on -- an opportunity for somebody to give me a chance to play quarterback."
Banks, a native of Houston, Texas, was a full qualifier after graduating from Nimitz High School, but he found no schools interested in him at his preferred position, so he opted to sign with Kilgore, but he didn't enroll and decided to head west for a fresh start.
The freshman signal-caller will enroll at Kansas State this summer and he will have four years to play three starting this fall.
