So will Raulston, who is verbally committed to Louisiana Tech, take an official visit to Iowa State? "I'm definitely considering it. I don't think it would hurt to go see what it's like," he said. "The fact that they only have two quarterbacks on scholarship is definitely a plus. I'm going to have to talk with my parents about it and then I'll decide whether to visit. The Iowa State coaches are hoping I'll come up next weekend (January 23rd) for an official visit."
The 6-foot-2, 185-pound quarterback is not just excited about Iowa State having only two quarterbacks. "The chance to play for Coach Herman is definitely a major factor because he really does a great job of developing quarterbacks," said Raulston. "I got to know him when he started recruiting me to Rice last summer. I got to sit in on a quarterbacks meeting and you could just tell how much he connects with his players. They really like and respect him and his offenses have been prolific and I think that he'll probably do the same at Iowa State."
