Broomfield Excited About Upcoming ISU Visit

Bayside (FL) High School's Deon Broomfield, who will be visiting Ames on October 18th, had a very interesting visitor at his game this week.

"We played Thursday night and it was great because Koonz came to see my game," said Broomfield. "We beat Centennial 20-12 and I had an interception and a couple of real big hits."

The visit by Iowa State assistant coach Jeff Koonz was just another way of showing Deon how much they would like for him to become a future Cyclone. "Right now they are definitely my leader," he said. "I really like the fact that they were the first one to offer me. That's a big thing with me and the fact that they have stuck with me ever since."

The 6-foot, 168-pound safety has offers from Iowa State and Florida Atlantic and is also hearing from South Florida, Central Florida, and Florida International but says a commitment could be coming soon. "I'm really excited about the visit and if everything goes right, I'll probably make a decision to commit to Iowa State," said Broomfield. "I really look forward to seeing the campus and meeting the coaches and players. I've even been chatting with Phillip Bates a little bit on myspace."

If Deon were to commit to Iowa State, he's not sure what his role would be early but he's not against redshirting for a season. "They've just told me that they would expect me to be a playmaker for them in the secondary," he said. "But if I have to redshirt I'd be okay with that.
