Adam Holtorf doesn’t know how his college football career will play out, but the newest member of Kansas State’s 2015 recruiting class is sure of this: No one will question his work ethic when he joins the Wildcats.
“The thing I pride myself on is my motor and how hard I play,” Holtorf said in a phone conversation from his home in Seward, Neb. “My effort level is something I can control. You can’t always control the outcome of games, so I strive to give maximum effort on every play and to be phsycial and strong. I lift a lot of weights and work hard so I can give it my all on the field.”
Holtorf is a two-star offensive lineman and the fifth-ranked high school prospect in Nebraska, according to Rivals.com. The 6-foot-4, 271-pounder orally committed to K-State late Sunday after attending a weekend camp. He chose the Wildcats over Wyoming, Ohio, Western Michigan, Harvard and Yale.
He is the third member of K-State’s 2015 recruiting class, joining Hays, Kan., quarterback Alex Delton and Stone Mountain, Ga., wide receiver Isaiah Zuber.
He plays left tackle for Seward High, but he is projected to play guard in college. Holtorf announced his decision on Twitter.
“I wanted to be done (with recruiting) before my senior year so I could focus on football and school,” Holtorf said. “Working with Kansas State coaches and taking a campus tour just really had me thinking it was the best place for me. I had a busy spring and I took a lot of unofficial visits, but Kansas State just stuck out with me. They were my first big FBS offer, and they were always there shooting me a message or shooting me mail. They truly seemed like they believed in me.”
