One future Iowa State Cyclone football player couldn’t be more excited about his official visit coming up this weekend in Ames.
Michigan standout athlete Richard Bowens III will make his third trip to the Iowa State this weekend, the talented defensive back is treating this trip a little different than those prior visits.
“I’m looking at it as a business trip,” Bowens told AllCyclones.com. “I will checkout the classrooms this trip, talk to Cyclones Academic support team and get to know what it will be like to be a student athlete at Iowa State.”
Bowens will fly into Ames with his father Richard Jr. and his mother will drive up from their home in Michigan.
“I’m looking forward to bonding with my future teammates this weekend,” Bowens said. “I have already developed a great relationship with the entire coaching staff.”
When asked why he chose to be an Iowa State Cyclone, while holding over 15 offers, the talented athlete didn’t hesitate to reveal the reason why.
“Out of all the coaches and schools that recruited me, Coach Matt Campbell and his assistant coaches by far did the best job of recruiting me, hands down,” Bowens said. “They sold me on how genuine and real they are with each other and their team. They sold my parents on the fact that it was the best place for me to continue my playing career but most importantly where I will get a quality education and grow into a successful person.”
Campbell has made a everlasting impression on the Bowen Family.
“He is such a great person, a great leader and fantastic coach,” Bowens said. “He seems so trustworthy, I love how he interacts with his players. How much respect the team has for him, and how he and his coaching staff get along.”
Bowens committed to the Cyclone back in the spring, it’s a decision that he 150 percent sure that he’s confident about.
“No doubt I’m going to be a Cyclone,” Bowens said. “I will be busy recruiting other athletes to Ames this weekend. I’m excited about my official visit.”
