Huntrods Facing Tough Decision

It has been pretty quiet on the in-state recruiting scene for Hawkeye fans recently. caught up with one of the best remaining prospects, 6'6 255 OL Clint Huntrods, and got the latest on his upcoming decision. Will Clint stay local with the Cyclones or stray east to the Hawkeyes?

Clint Huntrods knows just about everything you could possibly ask him concerning the Hawkeye and Cyclone football programs. However, Clint has not stopped trying to gain every little piece of information he can gather. His recent visit to Iowa City perhaps was his most informative.

"I got to sit through player meetings with Coach Philbin," Clint said. "The meetings were excellent. They were very detailed, specific, and in-depth. I could tell that Coach Philbin is good at what he does."

So with the vast knowledge of both programs in hand, is Clint coming close to a decision?

"I honestly don't know. There is no set deadline as I'll just make it when it feels right. I have not even set any official visits at this point."

Clint had no problem even feeding one of the classic lines in America!

"The recruiting process should be compared to the statement that there is so much more to a book than its cover," Clint added to cunningly. "I'm not worried about the outcome of any games this fall as I know it is not this year or next year that I need to be concerned over. I just want to enter the best possible situation for myself."

Clint, who carries a 3.7 and 25 on ACT, has not got into great detail about both in-state programs. However, this time around, Clint was a little more open to

"I'm not gonna lie that Iowa State doesn't hold a lot of value because of where I live. People around my community are big Cyclone supporters, and I have a lot more friends that attend Iowa State. I'm also very active in agriculture and 4-H, being a small town Iowa kid. Iowa State would fit me better in those areas."

"Iowa has such a great program, though. I have gotten the chance to speak to the current players and learned of what a great situation it is for lineman. I love Coach Ferentz and the staff as they are good people, and the strength program is great with Coach Doyle. I know I will really have a tough decision to make in the near future, for sure," Clint stated.

Clint will be at it again this fall at strongside tackle for Baxter High School. The Hawks are looking for a good start to their offensive line recruiting, and why look further than right here in the state of Iowa. Clint will have a very tough decision ahead, but you better expect Iowa to pull out the red carpet to land this in-state prospect.
