Garden Plain, Kan., athlete Logan Dold committed to Kansas State back in late January after the Wildcats were first to extend him a scholarship offer. Since then the 6-foot-1, 200-pound defensive back/running back hasn't wavered one bit on the commitment.
"Some schools have been calling my coach still, but no one has directly been talking to me," Dold said. "I still talk to K-State a couple times a week. We're just keeping up with stuff. I'm not going to change my mind about my commitment. I'm 100 percent sold and 100 percent solid on Kansas State."
Dold was recruited by K-State offensive coordinator James Franklin. He said the Wildcats like him as an athlete, but most likely he'll end up at safety in college.
"K-State recruited me as a defensive back, most likely safety," he said. "I think the best thing I do on offense is that I read the hole. I'm both an inside and an outside runner. But I really like playing defense, too. At safety you get to be back and then come up and make the play after the line occupies the blockers."
Dold won't be able to make it to Manhattan, Kan., for the Wildcats' camp this summer, though.
"I'll be out of town when K-State has their camp so I won't be going to it and I don't expect to go to any other camps," he said. "I'll be going to a few 7-on-7 camps but that's about it."
Dold was a class 3A all-state selection in 2006. Despite missing three games with a broken thumb, he led his team to the state championship game this season after rushing for 1,538 yards and 20 touchdowns.
Dold pulled off a rare hat-trick of touchdowns in the state championship game against undefeated Silver Lake – scoring on a 53-yard interception return, a 41-yard run and a 96-yard kickoff return.
Dold, who also earned all-league and all-metro honors this past season, is also a standout in track. He won the class 2A state championship in the long jump with a leap of 22.05 feet and also has a personal best in the 100 meters of 10.9 seconds.
He has big expectations for his senior season.
"Our first game is at Douglass," he said. "I think we beat them by about 40 points last year and we return most of our team. We should be pretty solid this year. We have pretty much our whole line back. We lost one lineman. So they're pretty big. I expect to run the ball a majority of the time."
"I'd like to improve my speed more than anything and my lateral movement. That way that'll help me be ready for when I get to K-State."
