"I committed to Kansas because it was the best place for me," the Scout.com two-star linebacker said. "I really started some good chemistry at camps this summer, and it really feels like home. I felt welcomed there more than any other school."
Justin Springer posted 154 tackles, seven sacks, five forced fumbles, three interceptions and was a 5A second team All-State selection for Los Fresnos (12-1).
"I picked Kansas over Arizona State, Sam Houston State, Air Force and Army," Springer said. "It is just a great atmosphere. I felt like those people over there just wanted me more. I really think it is just the better place for me."
The 6-4, 220-pound defensive stand-out talked of his visit that sparked his commitment.
"I visited Friday, Saturday and Sunday. I had so much fun. I met a bunch of recruits that were really cool. I just bonded real well with the players," Springer concluded.
