Fridley (Minn.) Totino Grace class of 2015 running back Kez Flomo had a strong sophomore campaign in 2012. He's now looking to use his 2013 season to break out on the college recruiting scene.
Now 5-foot-10 and 205 pounds, Flomo rushed for 798 yards and 12 touchdowns in ten games as a sophomore. He received further confidence when he received individual attention at a Big Ten school's camp this summer.
"The only camp I went to was the Iowa camp," Flomo said. "When I got there the head coach pulled me out from the whole thing and had a talk with me. He was saying, 'black and gold looks good on you.' That was pretty cool."
The meeting with Kirk Ferentz caught Flomo by surprise, but gave him motivation going into the rest of the camp.
"I wasn't expecting anything; I was just going in there to pick up some skills," he said. "I was with the running back position coach and I felt like I stood out with the top players there."
Besides Iowa, Flomo has started to receive interest from Nebraska, Ball State and North Dakota. He will look to line up visits with some of those schools for game day visits this fall, but his top priority is taking his game to the next level on the field this season.
"I'm going to get the ball a ton this year," Flomo said. "My goal this year is to really improve in just getting a better vision of the field when I am running with the football."
