Hartland Arrowhead (Wisc.) junior linebacker Sam Seonbuchner talks about his commitment to Iowa State, his fit in the defense and more.

Iowa State added to their class over the weekend with 6'2, 215-pound outside linebacker Sam Seonbuchner, who chose the Cyclones over four other offers (Ball State, Bowling Green, North Dakota, Ohio).

"I was impressed by the visit, so I had to go back and see if had I had that feeling again," he explained, "and obviously, I did. I love the coaches, facilities, academics and everything they had to offer, so I committed."

Head coach Paul Rhoads was also a large part of the decision.

"He's just a great guy. He cares about his players and cares about players' parents. My parents love him. They wanted me to go to Iowa State because they love the coaching staff."

An All-Conference selection for the state champion Warhawks, Seonbuchner will play a similar role in college to what he does in high school.

"They said I'm going to play the WILL linebacker spot and what I'll do is stopping the pass and the run and I'm used to that playing at Arrowhead."

With recruiting now on the back burner, the goals for the next year are clear.

"All I have to focus on is working out, school, getting better and this season our goal is getting back to the state championship and winning."
