Big Week for Sandvig

Last week at Iowa State's football camp Alex Sandvig finally got the offer from Iowa State that he had been looking for. How did Sandvig look at camp? How did he feel afterwards? Get the scoop here in this CN recruiting update.

Alex Sandvig was one of the most impressive players at Iowa State's football camp last week and his hard work paid off when he received an offer from Iowa State.


Sandvig, a 6'1, 175 pound WR out of Valley HS in Des Moines is the younger brother of Zac Sandvig who committed to Iowa State last season. Now that Iowa State has offered, there's a good chance that he'll be teaming up with his bro in the near future. The only other school in contention is Iowa according to Sandvig.


"The only other school that's up there with Iowa State is Iowa. They are contacting me a lot more. I was at their one day camp on the 3rd. They gave me a lot of one on one attention," Sandvig told CN last week at camp.


Sandvig attended Iowa State's camp last year too, but he felt like he got a lot more out of camp as a senior.


"Personally I think that I've stepped it up a little. These coaches have never really coached me one on one. They did last year at camp but now that I'm a senior this year, there's a little more attention towards me," Sandvig said.


Sandvig said this to CN before he actually picked up his ISU offer.


"I felt good. I'm just coming out here and hopefully going to get that offer. There are a lot of good people out here. You've just got to compete and keep working hard. It will pay off," Sandvig said.


The hard work did pay off for Sandvig as offer number one is now on the table. Sandvig, like his brother is a versatile athlete who can play numerous positions on the football field, but Sandvig believes he will play WR at the next level.


"Unless I get a little bigger I'll probably be staying at WR," Sandvig said.


That could be good news for Cyclone fans in the future considering Sandvig was the favorite target of Cyclone commit Phillip Bates during passing drills at camp.


"Phillip and I met here just at this camp and we've been working a lot together. He's a great QB. I'd love to catch balls from him in the future. That's what I'm aiming for."
