In an interview with Sleepers Media, Hawkins discussed Underwood’s influence on his choice to move to K-State as follows:

“After my Louisville visit man cancelled, [Brad Underwood] really phoned me to chat about Louisville before I left [for Manhattan]. nonetheless, it was cancelled, and he began discussing K-State with me. He simply added a kind comment and honestly had nothing bad to say. Being quite upbeat, he informed me about Aggieville, stating that his spouse was originally from there. He was really positive about providing information about K-State, and I even told him, “Damn coach, you trying to sell me on your former school or what?” We kind of laughed it off, but he had nothing but good things to say.”
