"They had about 50 prospects there, but when it was finished, they picked about four guys to stay longer and talk with the head coach. It was pretty special meeting Kirk Ferentz. I have a good time," said Westerkamp to HawkeyeInsider.com. "He just introduced himself to us and we got to go into his office. He said that he had heard a lot of good things about me and that he really just wanted to meet me face-to-face.
"I really liked him, he was a really laid back guy. You don't see that very often with college head coaches. A lot of head coaches aren't very active when it comes to recruiting, but it was really good to hear from him. He said I was on his radar. It was great to be able to talk with him on day one."
At 6-foot-2, 180 pounds, Westerkamp had a special season for the Broncos in 2010. He registered 89 catches for 1,611 yards, and 21 touchdowns.
"Iowa actually told me to expect an offer pretty soon. I was told that I'm one of their top guys," said Westerkamp. "I loved it there. I love the stadium. It was the first thing that I noticed when I got there. It's so big. I love the atmosphere around the it and the program. It was a great time.
"I really don't have a favorite, I have a lot more junior days to go to. I could go to another junior day and say to myself, 'wow this is great I want to come here.' I just don't want to do that. I want to wait until all my junior day visits are done."
Westerkamp will also visit Wisconsin, Boston College and Notre Dame within the next month. He is looking for a school that he says fits him as a player most. He also wants a place where academics are a focus.
