According to his father, Lumberton, North Carolina offensive lineman Thad Hedgpeth has decided to head to play football in the Big 12.
"He visited K-State last weekend (Dec. 14)," the elder Hedgpeth said. "He had a great time on the visit.
"He had nothing but good stuff to say about his time in Manhattan. But he did not commit on the visit."
That decision came two days later for the 6-foot-4, 292 pounder. "The offensive line coach (Paul Dunn) called on Tuesday and Thad committed to them at that time."
Hedgpeth had also been recruited by Clemson, Georgia, Kentucky and Syracuse.
