Gilbert offered spot at Iowa State

by Elizabeth Pitts-Hibbard

Marlow High School senior Jace Gilbert recently confirmed that he was offered a full scholarship at Iowa State this week.

“It’s awesome,” Gilbert said in an interview on Friday. “The culture around that program is a lot like what Coach [Matt] Weber had cultivated here at Marlow….anywhere you go for college recruiting, they make it sound like it’s a family, but I really felt something different there.

“They really seem like they’re trying to do different things that feel like the program here. I really like the town. It’s far away, but it’s a smaller college town and I feel good about that.”

Gilbert did not confirm a date for signing a Letter of Intent to play for Iowa State as of press time.
