Virgin Ready For Trip To Iowa State

Westwood (FL) High School's Isaac Virgin will arrive in Ames on Friday for his first official visit as he will get to see the Cyclones up close and personal when they play Saturday against the Missouri Tigers.

"It's my first official visit and I'm actually really excited," said Virgin. "First off I want to check out the surroundings to see if I feel comfortable and then I also want to check out the academics. I plan on studying sports medicine."

The 6-foot-4, 230-pound quarterback has already helped his school win the District 13-4A Championship and on November 21st he will leading them in the Florida State Playoffs against Boca Raton. Isaac has thrown for 1,290 yards and 14 touchdowns while only throwing 4 interceptions. He has also run for 405 yards and 7 touchdowns.

Virgin is a very solid athlete and could possibly end up switching positions in college. "My heart is a quarterback," he said. "However, if it comes down to it, I would have no problem playing tight end."

Isaac mostly stays in touch with Iowa State assistant coach Tony Petersen but recently got to talk with Iowa State's head coach. "I talked to Coach Chizik about 2 or 3 weeks ago and he just pretty much told me that he was real excited that I was coming up," said Virgin. "He said that they feel that I'm a good athlete and they want me on the field as soon as possible."

Virgin has scholarship offers from Iowa State, Purdue, Liberty, and USF. He plans on taking a few more visits but isn't sure when those will happen due to the state playoffs. "I'm probably going to Liberty next," he said. "With the playoffs going on it's getting pretty hectic to set up a date."

Isaac is not sure when he will make a final choice but don't count on a quick decision. "I want to explore all of my options," he said. "It's a real big decision and I want to take my time. I'll decide when I feel a certain comfort zone."
