New, 1 comment

Here's who'll be out on the gridiron for ISU next year.

Reese Strickland-USA TODAY Sports

A month and a half ago, ZERO recruits had committed to play football at Iowa State in 2016, causing many to doubt if there was any sort of plan for the future. Since then, five athletes (three high school, two JUCO) have announced their intention to join the Cyclone program and play for head coach Paul Rhoads.

The coaching staff still has work to do to put fans' concerns to rest completely, but in the meantime we can compile the info about our current class of '16. Here's some facts, stats and even Twitter handles of the latest recruits. Feel free to follow them (but don't Tweet anything at them, because that's totally creepy...).
