Ben Lamaak, Iowa State's newest football commit just got back from his official visit to Iowa State on Sunday morning and he's now itching to become a Cyclone next season. Lamaak, a 6'5, 240 pound tight end out of Cedar Rapids is looking forward to his college career and he talks about his decision and his good friend that's already committed to Iowa State right here.
"It's great that I can finally go
and tell people that I'm going to Iowa State. I got kind of tired of coaches
calling and the different people coming to my school. I'm really looking forward
to it," said LaMaak.
Ben Lamaak had plenty of offers on his
plate but Iowa
State was his only D-1
football offer. Other notable offers were from Northern Iowa and division two
Missouri State. Lamaak said that for a long time he
didn't know if he would play football or basketball, but found it easy choosing
"I really liked the fan support
when I was down there. I think that Coach Mac and his staff are top notch guys,"
Lamaak attended the basketball
game against Kansas this weekend on his visit
with his good friend and Iowa State commit, Austen Arnaud.
"We've been good buddies for two
years. That was definitely a factor. He's a great guy and he's really athletic,"
The two commits met while playing
basketball against each other for so long in their high school careers.
"W're pretty good friends. I talk
to him on the computer once and a while and we call each other up every now and
then," said Lamaak.
Lamaak is also excited about how
close Ames is to
his home town. He's psyched up for his family to be able to come and watch so
easily. Lamaak is currently playing basketball but is already making plans to
get ready for his Iowa State career.
"Right now I'm finishing out my
basketball season. Then I'll probably take a couple of weeks and recover from
that. Then I'll just hit the weight room really hard. I'm going out for track
and I'm going to work out with the sprinters. I'm going to get faster," said
Lamaak still hasn't decided when
he will move to campus and begin reporting to Iowa State.
