Florida Defensive End Ready For Visit To Ames

Niceville (FL) High School's Luke Sager has two visits left and the first will be to Iowa State this weekend for the Nebraska game.

"Right now South Florida is my leader but they are the only visit that I have taken," he said. "Iowa State and N.C. State are my other two leaders and so I am taking official visits to both because I just want to see some other schools before I would make any final decision."

The 6-foot-4, 240-pound defensive end has only been able to play in the last two games due to an early season ankle injury but he is clearly back with a vengeance. "My first game back I had nine tackles and two sacks and then this past week I had seven tackles and three sacks," said Sager. "It's great to be back and helping the team. We're 6-0 on the season."

Luke says that he stays in consistent contact with Iowa State defensive coordinator Wayne Bolt and that he is also excited to meet up with his host for this coming weekend. "Dustin Land is a Florida guy also and he's going to be my host so that should be cool," he said. "Coach Bolt got me in contact with him a while ago and we've stayed in contact. He loves it at Iowa State and thinks I'll really like it."

Sager is excited about getting to see Iowa State and also likes the fact that he could get a chance to play early if he picked the Cyclones. "I don't know what to expect so I am excited to see what the fans are like, what the layout of the school is like, and to meet the other players," he said. "I also like that Coach Bolt has told me that they have some defensive ends graduating and that I really would have a good chance to contribute as a freshman."

Luke feels that he will likely make a quick decision after his visits are finished. "I'm trying to get a visit to N.C. State during my bye week in two weeks and then I might take another unofficial visit to South Florida," said Sager. "Then I see myself committing soon after to the school where I feel most comfortable. I just want to make sure I'm 100 percent about my decision."
