Kansas State hosted four official for the TCU game in Callen Barta, Jayshawn Ross, Jacques Spradley-Demps and Boone Morris. Three of the four have since committed to K-State in Barta, Spradley-Demps and Morris.
Morris committed to Kansas State on October 23 shortly after returning to Texas from Manhattan.
“I just trusted God through it all and he has given me the discernment,” Morris said to KSO. “The Kansas State coaches all hyped me up and told me they were super excited for me and now it was time to work.”
His official visit to K-State hit all the marks the senior was looking for.
“It was great,” he shared. “I really enjoyed the culture and the coaches but just the people and the players more than anything.”
K-State true freshman linebacker Austin Romaine was Morris’ host of the visit. Having Romaine as the host stood out to the Texas native. Remember, most see Morris molding into a very similar player as the one that is likely returning to the starting spot at inside linebacker this week.
“I think it was good for me to connect with the players and especially a great linebacker who has got to show out some this year and was in my position not too long ago,” Morris pointed out.
From a game perspective, Kansas State thumped TCU 41-3 in a rematch of the Big 12 Championship Game a year ago. The three points for the Horned Frogs were the fewest they have scored in a game since 1993.
“It was crazy impressive the show K-State put on,” Morris explained. “Three points on the scoreboard is a testament to how the linebackers played. They moved some people around and put some guys in new spots. They had great success.”
Morris was also able to connect with the other official visitors from that particular weekend as well.
“All of the guys on the official visit were very cool and I hope we all end up at K-State together,” he responded.
The linebackers coach in Manhattan is Steve Stanard, and the two shared meaningful conversations.
“Stanard is a very cool and real guy who doesn’t put on a front,” Morris noted. “And he is real about the day to day life at K-State.”
Morris will be enrolling at Kansas State in January.
