Dallas Lincoln three-star safety Courtney Herndon originally committed to Kansas State early in the recruiting process. It was a decision that he later said he need to think about and that led him to take an official visit to K-State's chief rival, the Kansas Jayhawks.
After a long and hard decision-making process, the 5-foot-10, 200-pounder has come up with a final decision.
"I've made up my mind, and I'm not changing it," Herndon said. "I'm going to Kansas State. I've told K-State that I'm coming and they were excited. I'm going to tell KU tomorrow."
So what won Herndon over?
"I was just more comfortable with the K-State coaches, and I know that I have a better chance to go to the league there," Herndon said. "It's also a better school for me, and I liked the fit with the people at the school. I also think I have a better chance at playing time there."
Herndon said it was a tough decision.
"I feel like a huge weight has been taken off my shoulders," Herndon said. "The Kansas coaches did a good job, and I really liked them all. Coach Mangino was very nice and honest with me, but it wasn't enough. I just felt K-State was the best fit for me."
