Huff Twins Can See Themselves at Iowa State

Twin brothers Jacob and Julian Huff do everything together. The Bolingbrook (IL) 2015 athletes have the same offers and make the same visits — including this past weekend to Iowa State. But are they a package deal? Head inside for the answer as well as what each player thought about the Cyclones

Bolingbrook (IL) twin brothers Jacob and Julian Huff do just about everything together. On the first weekend of their spring break, the Huffs — 2015 prospects with offers from the same three schools — trekked to Ames for an Iowa State football scrimmage.

Tuesday, they played in a whiffle-ball game, sat next to each other for a phone interview, passing the device around when needed, and later that night had plans to go work out at the football fields.

But the big question: Are they a package deal?

"That's something we don't know yet," Jacob told AllCyclones.com. "It really depends on this upcoming summer, what kind of offers we're looking at. Weighing the pros and cons, making the best choice for each one of us."

Illinois State was the first school to jump on the Huff twins. Then Central Michigan. And then Toledo. They believe the Cyclones are potentially close to pulling the trigger, in which case they'd have a lot to think about.

"I loved [the weekend visit]," Jacob, a cornerback, said. "I could see myself there the next few years. The facilities were really nice, the best in the conference."

Added Julian, an outside linebacker: "Great facilities, great people down there. Felt really good about it. What I loved was the aura of the whole staff, people that love football."

The twins talk to Cyclones graduate assistant Derek Day twice a week. Day in 2014 secured a commitment from Illinois prospects Jauan Wesley and was the lead man on Bobby McMillen, the Naperville (IL) middle linebacker who stands as ISU's lone 2015 commit.

Weighing in the twins' advantage is their versatility. Jacob is a 5-foot-11 safety who would be fine playing cornerback in college. Julian is a 5-foot-11 outside linebacker who really sees himself as an athlete.

"I'm ready to go to college and play where they want me," he said.

If the Cyclones decide to offer, it could come soon.

"They told our coach they wanted to see us in a couple weeks in the weight room," Jacob said. "We do weights Monday nights with the team, so they're gonna come in that day and see us work out, do some cone drills. And we'll talk about a possible offer.

"I'm hoping. I really like them."
