Broomfield Sets Up Fall Visit To Iowa State

Bayside (FL) High School's Deon Broomfield is excited to be coming to Ames for an October visit.

"I've set up an official visit for October 18th which is the Nebraska game," he said. "I'm real excited to go check out the school and see what it is like."

The 6-foot, 175-pound Broomfield, who has scholarship offers from Iowa State and Florida Atlantic, has been talking mostly with Iowa State Assistant Coach Scott Fountain. "He said they would use me as a free safety and that there is an opportunity for early playing time," he said. "Coach told me that they will be losing some starters in the secondary and that if I do good I would definitely have a chance to get on the field."

Along with talking with Coach Fountain, Deon also got to talk with Iowa State Head Coach Gene Chizik. "That was pretty exciting because he told me that I was one of the main defensive backs that they were looking to recruit," he said. "He told me that Iowa State is becoming a defensive-minded team. It was pretty great for me because he has coached players like Aaron Ross, Mike Huff, and Carlos Rogers."

Broomfield said that he wants to add some weight and get stronger but feels he can bring a lot to the table. "I play with good range at safety and I feel I can really get to the ball," he said. "I would say I am a very physical defensive player."

He will be attending camp at USF this weekend and says that a decision will not be coming until the fall. "I want to first take all my official visits and then I will make my decision probably in the middle of the season."
