A college student from Spring pleaded guilty on Monday to plotting to join ISIS in Syria in a case that dates to the earliest American news reports about terrorist group.

Asher Abid Khan, 23, admitted in a Houston courtroom that he conspired with others and attempted to provide "material support" to a foreign terrorist organization. The mechanical engineering student at the University of Houston ultimately ditched his plan en route to joining jihadist forces, but continued to talk of becoming a martyr after he returned home.

He is the fifth person in Texas to plead guilty to attempting to provide support for ISIS. An unrelated defendant, Omar Faraj Saeed Al Hardan, 25, of Houston, pleaded guilty last year to providing material support to ISIS and is due to be sentenced in December.
