One Kansas high school football player apparently has a lot of interest in the Arkansas State Red Wolves.

Rightfully so.

For Edgerton HS linebacker Matt Plank, he grew up with a lot of AState stuff around his house.

Both of Plank's parents played at Arkansas State and he has relatives that still live close to the campus.

Plank and his parents even made the trip to Mobile, Alabama last January for the Red Wolves Bowl Game against Northern Illinois.

According to Plank he has a lot of interest in Arkansas State University.

"I love it there," Plank said. "I love the atmosphere, I definitely wouldn't mind playing there." Plank's father Jeff and his mother Tonya Dement both attended ASU, and played sports there.

"Dad played in the late 80's and mom played basketball one season before becoming a cheerleader there for the next three years," Plank said. "Last time we were up there, dad couldn't believe all the new stuff that they have built on campus."

Plank, a 6-foot-2, 210-pound linebacker, hopes he can follow in his dad's footsteps.

The standout linebacker plans on making a trip to Jonesboro this summer to participate in a Gus Malzahn Red Wolf Camp.

"I definitely want to go to a camp there," Plank said. "Hopefully I can pick up an offer from them."

Plank's grandmother lives in Blytheville, Arkansas and he has several other relatives in the area.
