A highly touted player since his middle school days, Fairview defensive lineman Brayden Wood made it known on Monday night who he will be playing for as a college student-athlete.
The 6-foot-3, 257-pound defensive end told 9News over a conference call that he has verbally committed to Kansas State, choosing the Wildcats over other Division-I schools Louisville, Colorado State, Boise State, Washington State and Hawaii.
“They really set up a plan for me and what I can expect from my time there,” Wood told Brad Cochi of BoCoPreps.com. “And my dad was also really impressed with how they recruited me and the plan they have for me. This was the school that showed me the most love and I just had a gut feeling that I should go there.”
According to 247sports.com, Wood is a three-star DE who is the 12th ranked Colorado player, regardless of position. He is the 79th-best defensive end in the nation according to the recruiting website.
Wood enjoyed a stellar junior season at FHS, producing 116 total tackles including 18 tackles for loss. He registered 2.5 sacks and will go into his senior campaign with 7.5 sacks.
