Gewont Talks About Visit

Jan Gewont was impressed by a lot of things when he took his visit to Iowa State. The big offensive lineman out of Illinois talks about his visit.

Jan Gewont was one of the many visitors at Iowa State this weekend and the 6'5, 280 pound lineman liked what he saw in Ames.


"Iowa State's stock has definitely gone up since I've actually seen the place," said Gewont.


While Gewont was in town, he said that him and Barney Cotton really hit it off, and that could be a factor when Gewont picks the college of his choice.


"I liked their offensive line coach. He really knew what he was talking about. I sort of created a bond with him. That was good," said Gewont.


Gewont has always said that academics mean a lot to him in choosing a school and he came away happy with what he found out at Iowa State.


"I got a chance to sit down with an academic advisor and plan out a schedule. I figured out what a normal day would be like for me if I went there," said Gewont.


Gewont also attended the basketball game against Iowa when he was in town and came away amazed with not only the performance of the basketball team, but the student section.


"The student section was amazing. All of the fan support was definitely a big thing. I'd like to be a part of that someday," said Gewont.


Gewont closed by talking about his visit in general.


"I had a lot of fun on the visit. The coaches and everybody treated me very well. I got to talk with all the coaches and I got to see all of the facilities. That's something that I really wanted to do," said Gewont.


Gewont still plans on visiting Toledo, Marshall and Kansas. He then plans on making a decision after taking his visits.
