Ready to Sign, Floyd Adding Weight

Qujuan Floyd wishes he could have enrolled at Iowa State in January but is using his last few months in California to add a little something to his game

As he wasn't an automatic qualifier out of high school, Qujuan Floyd didn't get to enroll early at Iowa State after committing in December.

Instead, Floyd will sign in two weeks and get to Ames in June (the specifics were laid out to him Wednesday during an in-home visit with ISU coach Todd Sturdy).

"I'm very excited," Floyd said late Wednesday. "I wish I could have left in December but things happen for a reason, so I guess I've got time to better myself before I get there."

Specifically, Floyd is looking to bulk up his 6-foot frame. He played safety at Santa Monica at 185 pounds but knows to compete for either of the Cyclones' safety vacancies he needs to get bigger, with a target goal of 205 pounds.

"Every morning I go to the park to do conditioning and weight training. I'm trying to get to 205, that's a weight I need to be comfortable at," Floyd said. "I want my playing weight to be 200 but I have to get past that because I know I'll lose weight with conditioning and stuff."

Floyd said he remains in good academic standing, on track to graduate in May, and has talked with fellow JUCO commit Dale Pierson about rooming together in Ames.
