Jake Behrens has not been offered by Kansas
State yet, but while his interest
in the Wildcats continues to grow, so do his conversations with his friends
that play for K-State.
Behrens, a fullback from Omaha's
Millard North High, has looked to running back John McCardle and first-year Cat
Brad Rooker for information about K-State.
"It would be nice to go there," he said. "I have my friends
there that I talk to about them. It's nice to be able to talk to them and know
what I'm getting. As far as K-State goes, it is a program that has come a long
way over the years."
But Behrens also has high interest in Stanford and Colorado,
the only two programs to have offered this 6-foot-2 225 pounder that also plays
linebacker and defensive end.
"I went to the Stanford camp and loved it," he said. "I have
a real interest in Stanford because I know I would get a great education and
they're talking about me playing early there. Colorado
has also talked about me getting on the field quick too."
As far as the kind of fullback Behrens is, he said he's
diverse in his skills, saying, "I can block with anyone, but also have good
hands to catch the ball out of the backfield and can run with it too."
Behrens, who has only received letters from K-State, said he
is also looking at Notre Dame and his home state's Nebraska—both
schools that he attended summer camps at.
Two of his five officials are also locked up—both Stanford
and Colorado. As far as the other
three, "they're wide-open right now." Behrens also said he "probably" won't
commit anywhere until he takes all his visits. And judging by the two visits he
said he will take, this prospect might just follow the offers when deciding on
which schools he should visit.
Jake Behrens does not have an offer from K-State just yet. But while he continues to stay interested in the Wildcats, he looks to his friends that play for K-State for advice.
