Ben Boothby is a 6'0, 250 pound All-Conference lineman out of Clinton, Iowa that is receiving attention from Iowa State early on in the 2007 recruiting process.

 

Boothby attended Iowa State's Junior Day a few weeks back and he's also visiting Iowa in April. Once again, Iowa State's upgrading of facilities is paying off on the recruiting trail as Boothby was impressed with Iowa State.

 

"I liked the facilities a lot. It was really cool that everything was right there and I guess that they're getting a new locker room. I really liked the new indoor football field too. It was really nice," said Boothby.

 

Boothby also got a taste of what the academic life at Iowa State is all about.

 

"I liked how I could experience the education part of it as well. We got toured around the facilities and all of that stuff. It was a great experience," said Boothby.

 

Boothby didn't go to Iowa's Junior Day, but plans on visiting Iowa in April. He's also receiving early attention from UNI and numerous D-2 schools around the country.

 

"They (Iowa and Iowa State) are one of my top schools. If I had to pick a school to go to right now I would choose them or Iowa. I like Iowa State a lot. I like everything out there," said Boothby.

 

In his junior season, Boothby's Clinton High School team went 6-3 which was a huge turnaround compared to his sophomore campaign.

 

"That was the best season that we've had in a long time. The year before that we were like 1-9 so it was a big turnaround," said Boothby.

 

Boothby is remaining goal oriented during the off-season as he's already looking ahead to next season.

 

"I want to do better than I did last year. I want to leave it all on the field and get some more colleges looking at me after my senior year," said Boothby.

 

During the summer months, Boothby is planning on improving his stock heading into his senior year by attending camps at Iowa State, Iowa and UNI.
