Jan Gewont was one of the many
visitors at Iowa State this weekend and the 6'5, 280 pound lineman
liked what he saw in Ames.
"Iowa State's stock has definitely gone up since
I've actually seen the place," said Gewont.
While Gewont was in town, he said
that him and Barney Cotton really hit it off, and that could be a factor when
Gewont picks the college of his choice.
"I liked their offensive line
coach. He really knew what he was talking about. I sort of created a bond with
him. That was good," said Gewont.
Gewont has always said that
academics mean a lot to him in choosing a school and he came away happy with
what he found out at Iowa State.
"I got a chance to sit down with
an academic advisor and plan out a schedule. I figured out what a normal day
would be like for me if I went there," said Gewont.
Gewont also attended the
basketball game against Iowa when he was in town and came away amazed
with not only the performance of the basketball team, but the student
"The student section was amazing.
All of the fan support was definitely a big thing. I'd like to be a part of that
someday," said Gewont.
Gewont closed by talking about his
visit in general.
"I had a lot of fun on the visit.
The coaches and everybody treated me very well. I got to talk with all the
coaches and I got to see all of the facilities. That's something that I really
wanted to do," said Gewont.
Gewont still plans on visiting
and Kansas. He
then plans on making a decision after taking his visits.
