Kansas State still sits at one football commit, though they are close on a handful of other prospects. St. Louis quarterback Dillon Duff announced his commitment to K-State in February and it came in a hurry. The junior did not have an offer for long but made his decision after taking a trip to Manhattan.

Duff was back on campus April 2 for his first visit since committing to Kansas State.

“I enjoyed my visit a lot,” he said. “I went through meetings and practice and really liked how they did it all. The trip made me even more confident in my decision, and I can’t wait to be back.”

There are a few differences in going on a visit as a committed prospect compared to not being committed. And Duff was kind enough to lay that out.

“I got to spend more time soaking it in and enjoying the visit,” he explained. “I was able to walk out to the complex feeling even more confident in my decision.”

A few moments on this particular visit to K-State stood out to the signal-caller.

“My favorite part was being able to sit in the quarterback meeting room and standing beside Coach [Matt] Wells and [Conor] Riley while they call practice,” Duff shared. “Everyone in the quarterback meeting was involved and teaching and learning from each other. Everyone got a chance to be evaluated from practice and challenged. I liked the way it was set up.”

Since he has stepped on campus at Kansas State after being hired, Wells has hit the ground running. He has embraced the new offense and dove in feet first in the Spring. His impact has been noted on the recruiting trail as well.

Duff discussed his future position coach further.

“He’s able to flip a switch and get after it,” Duff noted. “But also is a great guy to talk to and be around. I always enjoy being around him and getting to know him. I look forward to playing for him. He’s got a lot of love and passion for the people around him. It was great to see.”

The lone K-State commit also shared his thoughts on the practice he saw.

“I thought it was really productive and beneficial,” Duff noted. “It was high intensity but not too much for someone to get hurt. I like how they implemented game-like situations that can translate to a real game. All quarterbacks got good amount of reps as well. K-State’s offense has the ability to get the ball in the hands of their playmakers very often. I liked how they run the quarterback but stayed efficient in the pass game.”

He plans to graduate high school early and enrolling at Kansas State in January.
