LB Vontarius West will visit Iowa State


Three-star linebacker Vontarius West (Bartow, Fla./Bartow) will be under the watchful eye of Iowa State coaches during his game Friday, and the 5-foot-11, 185-pound senior plans to take a visit to the program in the next few weeks.

"We haven't totally worked that thing out yet but it'll be in October or early November," West said. "They are recruiting me pretty hard and showing a lot of love."

West has stayed active with his recruitment. Offers continue to come in and he stays in contact with several coaches each week."

"Right now I'm hearing from UCF, Houston, Memphis, South Florida, Western Kentucky...you name it," West said. "I try to keep up with all of them because right now I'm pretty open and I just want to see what every place has to offer."

West isn't sure of any other official visits past Iowa State and could wait until the end of his senior year to decide. He's being recruited as a linebacker and a safety."
