What gets better is this
Jacob Lattimer also grew up a Kansas State fan, who offered him a scholarship along with UAB and Louisiana-Monroe. But his brother said his visit to ISU convinced him to don the cardinal and gold.
"He always wanted to play at Kansas State, but he felt the coaches wanted him more at Iowa State," Josh Lattimer said. "He felt more of a connection there."
