City College of San Francisco cornerback Maurice Porter had a change of plans last week and decided to visit Kansas State instead of Kansas.
“I thought I would see what Kansas State had to offer,” the 6-foot-1, 190-pound Porter said. “I really liked what I saw. It is a good situation there for cornerbacks who can come in and play.”
Wildcat cornerback Randy Jordan hosted Porter on the visit.
“Randy was great to talk to,” Porter said. “He is from California, so he knows some of what I’m looking at. He’s a senior starter. So, there is an opening there, too.”
Porter has not made a commitment and is considering taking other visits.
“I’m looking at Kansas, Iowa State and Oregon as possible visit spots,” he said. “But, I don’t have any other visits set yet. I graduate in December, so I kind of need to hurry because I don’t have a lot of time.”
Wildcat coach Bill Snyder put on his sales pitch to Porter on the last day of the visit.
“Coach Snyder tried to sell his program to me,” the three-star rated cornerback said. “He did a good job. He told me all about the positives. He talked a lot about the fans and how they have traveled to the bowl games and all of the road games. Then he talked to me about how I could fit into the program and help them continue down the path they are going.”
Porter hopes to get other visits set in the next few days if he is going to take them.
“I really need to get with the other coaches and see whether I can work in the visits or not. They would have to be some very good situations to top what I know from K-State.”
