Lamaak Returns From Visit

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 power Northwest 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 Iowa State.


"I really liked the fan support when I was down there. I think that Coach Mac and his staff are top notch guys," said Lamaak.


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," said Lamaak.


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.


Lamaak still hasn't decided when he will move to campus and begin reporting to Iowa State.
