Deerfield (Ill.) junior quarterback prospect Alex Loukas (6-foot-4, 200 pounds) was one of over 160 players in attendance at last Saturday's Chicago Rivals.com Junior Media Day. Loukas also made an unofficial visit to Iowa State University last Monday, and Loukas fills us in on his latest travels.
"I made an unofficial visit last Monday to Iowa State with my Dad," Loukas said. "As you know I was also at the Rivals.com Junior Day on Saturday."
Loukas talked about his unofficial visit to Iowa State. He came away impressed with the Cyclones.
"I was basically the only player there last Monday, so I had a really good chance to talk with the coaches at Iowa State. I was able to get a tour of the Business program, and I also was given tours of the facilities and the campus at Iowa State. The campus at Iowa State was really nice, I liked the campus quite a bit. I was also impressed with the indoor facility and the overall facilities in general at Iowa State. I also just got along really well with all of the coaches at Iowa State, they were all really friendly and they seemed genuine and excited about recruiting me. I also had a chance to watch the players working out and conditioning and that was cool."
Loukas also had plenty of good things to say about the latest Rivals.com Junior day event.
I really got a lot from the speech from Coach (Joe) Hornback. He has some great knowledge about the recruiting process, yet he also made it fun and entertaining. I also enjoyed just getting to know a lot of the other prospects, and I was able to meet several kids that I've been hearing about at the event. I really appreciated the entire event and I also learned a lot and enjoyed the whole day."
Loukas has continued to receive mail from several schools this winter, and Loukas also has a few new suitors.
"I've been getting mail and tape request recently from Michigan State, Stanford and Tennessee."
