Davenport Wide Receiver Enjoys ISU Junior Day

One of the top wide receivers from the Quad Cities took in Iowa State's Junior Day last weekend and came away very impressed.

"It was a lot of fun as we got introduced to the coaches and they were all really nice," said Davenport Central High School's Keyvan Rudd. "We also got to see all the facilities like the weight room and the locker room. Then we got to go watch the basketball game and that was a pretty good time."

The 6-foot-2, 183-pound wide receiver had an outstanding junior season and while he has no scholarship offers yet he is being looked at by many schools. "I'm getting letters from a lot of schools but the three schools that are looking at me the hardest are Iowa State, Duke, and Wisconsin," said Rudd.

Keyvan also enjoyed getting to talk with the coaches and feels that the Iowa State program is in good hands with their new head coach Paul Rhoads. "I spoke to the wide receivers coach and he seemed to know a lot about me which was good," he said. "We also got to hear from Coach Rhoads and he really seems to know what he is doing and is really confident. I like that he knows what he wants to do as Iowa State's coach and you can see that he really wants to get it done."

So what is Rudd's biggest strength as a wide receiver? "I would say that I can go up and get any ball thrown to me," said Rudd. "I have good hands so I feel that I will get to any jump ball."
