Dallas Carter two-star offensive guard Demarcus Love has spent a lot of time in the Sunflower State in January. After taking an official visit to Kansas last weekend, Love was in Manhattan, Kan., this weekend for an official visit to Kansas State.
"I didn't see anything I didn't like," Love, who is 6-foot-5 and 260 pounds, said. "They have a really young coaching staff, and they were talking about how they have a bunch of starters back and that should help them win games early there.
"I also really liked coach Prince. The biggest thing I can say about Ron Prince is that he's cool. I mean it. He knew how to really talk to me and relate to me. I haven't gotten that with any of the other head coaches I've met."
Love said another one of his highlights was watching the KU-K-State basketball game from a restaurant in Aggieville.
"After they beat KU, there were people in the streets celebrating," Love said. "The coaches told me that this was for basketball only and to imagine what it's like after a football game.
"I've really gotten to respect the good rivalry between KU and K-State, you can tell they really want to beat each other."
But this isn't just a two-team race. Arkansas is very much in the picture and Love will visit Fayetteville next weekend. He also plays host to Hawg head coach Houston Nutt on Monday and KU assistant Tim Beck is also due in.
"I want to take this last visit and then decide," Love said. "I really thought heading into this weekend that I'd be able to come back and make a final decision. But the K-State trip has given me a lot to think about."
