Cqulin Hubert: I was just thinking today that a Cyclone is like a tornado and like them I feel I can pick up anything and tear up anything so it just kind of hit me that I had to be a Cyclone. So I just sat down at the table with my family and told them I was ready to commit and they fully supported me.
CSR: How excited are you to know that you will be playing your college football in the Big 12?
CH: I'm just so excited and really there is nothing like playing in the Big 12. I just thank god for helping me get in this position.
CSR: How was your talk with Coach Rhoads today?
CH: Well I knew he would be in meetings today so I first called Coach Herman because we have a great relationship and when he got on the phone he knew what was coming. So he took the phone to Coach Rhoads who was in a meeting and I told him that I wanted to be a Cyclone. He got real excited and told me that I just made his weekend.
CSR: How important is it to you that Coach Rhoads is a defensive-minded coach?
CH: I feel very good about it because it means to me that he knows what type of linebacker that I can be at Iowa State. It shows me that he understands I can be a real physical player for him.
CSR: How important was your visit in your decision?
CH: It was great because now I know how nice it's going to be when I play there. I love the fans and I like that with no pro sports in Iowa that college sports is where it's at with most of the people.
CSR: How much of a factor was it to you that three senior linebackers will be graduating at the end of the year?
CH: It was a big factor when I saw that and it really just makes me push myself to get ready for college. I know the guys that are returning are working hard up there so I need to work three times harder so I can come in and compete for a spot next year.
