Three-Star WR Sterling Galban Details Commitment to Iowa State

Scout caught up with three-star wide receiver Sterling Galban who made his commitment to Iowa State last night.

Sterling Galban, 5-foot-10, 173-pound wide receiver from Burnet (Texas) High committed to the Iowa State Cyclones on Monday night. Galban is now set to play his college ball in the Big 12 Conference.

"I felt like it was the best fit for me and my family," Galban said. "I have a chance to come in and make a big impact on the program early."

Galban recently toured the campus in Ames, and it was on that trip that he came to the realization that the Cyclones program was a fit for him from all angles. 

"When I visited up there last month everything exceeded my expectations," Galban explained. "They have everything every other school has and more. Everything from the weight room, to the facilities, to the fan base."

"The guys up there (players), as well as the coaching staff really felt like family and it really feels like home. It definitely feels like a place where I can stay at for four years."

Galban is buying into the vision of the program and feels like it is trending in a very positive direction under the guidance of head coach Matt Campbell, who has pushed a mottos like “recruit, retain and develop” and "attitude and effort". 

"Some people might not know a whole lot about the university but there is something special about to happen there," Galban said. "I really bought in to coach Campbell's vision for the future. He's bringing in the right guys to take this program to the top."

Galban feels like he fits in well with the program as a player and that he has the chance to push for some early playing time once he arrives on campus. 

"I fit perfectly into the offense," Galban informed. "They run a spread-type where they spread the ball around the field giving the receivers chances to make plays. I feel like being a slot-type receiver, I've got to be in an offense where I'm going to touch the ball multiple times a game, and that's what their plan is for me. They feel like I can come in and play early and make a big impact on turning this program around."

Galban assembled a strong junior season with 70 receptions for 942 yards and 11 touchdowns. He has been tested with a laser-timed 4.43 40 and has been one of the top performers on the camp and seven-on-seven scene in the off-season. 

"My biggest strength is my ability to make plays," Galban said. "I feel like my route running, hands, speed, and decision making separates me from other players."
