Hartman visits K-State

Wichita (Kan.) Kapaun Mt. Carmel quarterback Tysyn Hartman continued his unofficial visit schedule this weekend when he traveled to Manhattan to see Kansas State's game against Florida Atlantic. The No. 10 ranked prospect in the Sunflower State had visited Kansas the week before and has previously said a decision could be nearing for him.

"The visit went really well, I think," the 6-foot-3, 191-pound Hartman said. "Except for getting rained out during the 30 minutes after the first quarter. Other than that it was good."

Hartman felt the Wildcats played better this week after last week's one-point victory over Illinois State.

"They got it done. They did well. It was a lot better than last week. They looked pretty good in all phases. I got to talk to the coaches too. They were glad I was there. They were talking about my game because they only stayed for the first half because they had several other games they had to get to that night."

Hartman's Crusaders used a big second half performance to post a 35-9 victory.

"We didn't do too hot the first half. We were ahead 7-3 at half, but we scored 28 in the second half. Individually, I did well. I could do better, but I think I did well. I had six rushes for 74 yards and I was 7-for-13 passing for 97 yards and one touchdown."

Hartman believes he could be nearing a decision.

"I think I am getting closer to narrowing it down. I want to talk to my parents to see if they think I'm ready to make a decision. One point they thought it was time, then another they wanted me to wait and bit. So, I'm wanting to talk it over more with them.

"Every time you have an interaction with a school, it can be a step forward or a backward for that school. This weekend was a definite step forward for K-State."
