Bumpas stays with K-State

After a coaching change and a visit from the new staff, Colorado Springs (Sierra High School) outside linebacker Clarence Bumpas has re-affirmed his commitment to play football for Kansas State University. The 6-foot-1, 204-pound three-star prospect took visits from the Kansas State coaches as well as a conversation with Colorado State Defensive Coordinator Larry Kerr.

"I just talked to one of their coaches," Bumpas said when asked about Kansas State. "They came down to see me yesterday, actually. Everything is pretty much in-tact. They were just here to find out what I was thinking and making sure I was still in there."

Bumpas added he was told about the Wildcats' staff hirings and felt satisfied with the situation in Mahattan enough to remain a KSU commitment.

"They are still in the hiring staff right now," Bumpas said. "The defensive staff will be done in a few weeks. On the offensive staff, some may stay and some may go. I understand Coach Snyder has everything under control. he has his family tree of coaches to pick from."

Bumpas said he also talked with Kerr to offer a status report to the CSU coaching staff.

"I talked to Coach Kerr at CSU, and I told him my situation and he understands. We are on an even plane," Bumpas said. "I am still a K-State commit, but if something were to happen, it would most definately be Fort Collins."
