Deon looks forward to speaking with Coach Rhoads in the next week or two. "I look forward to asking him about the schemes that he is going to install," said Broomfield. "Once I get to know him I think I will feel even more comfortable but I already like his defensive philosophy."
The 5-foot-11, 168-pound safety was surprised when Gene Chizik chose to leave Iowa State but that has not deterred Broomfield at all from ending up at Iowa State. "I was real confused when he chose to leave because of all the things he was telling us," he said. "But I committed to the school not the coach so I'm still 100 percent sold on Iowa State."
