The start of football season brings with it the start of official recruiting visits in other sports. That means Kansas State basketball coaches are lining up as many visits as possible over the next few weeks.
After working the phones for a few hours Monday, I confirmed four official visits that are taking place in the next two weeks. Four-star guard Jordan Mathews and shooting guard Wesley Iwundu will be in Manhattan this weekend for the Wildcats’ season-opening football game against Missouri State. Three-star small forward Jeff Carroll and his Dallas Mustangs teammate Marcus Foster will visit Manhattan the following week.
Here is a look at all four players:
Jeff Carroll has no idea what to expect during his official visit to Kansas State next weekend, and not just because the three-star prospect who plays AAU basketball for the Dallas Mustangs has never been to Manhattan.
“I’m just really excited to go on this visit,” Carroll said. “This is going to be the first college visit I have ever been on.”
He has received plenty of interest from college coaches, though. Carroll has scholarship offers from K-State, TCU and Oklahoma. He is also expecting an offer from Oklahoma State and is actively talking with Texas. Right now, he says he is considering all five, but …
“If I had to narrow it down to a top three,” Carroll said. “Kansas State, Oklahoma State and Texas would be my top three.”
