You win in the trenches. The commitment that Matt Campbell and staff secured today will help ISU do just that.

Alex Halsted first broke the news that Kamilo Tongamoa, rated a 3-star prospect by 247Sports, chose the Cyclones over Arizona State, Colorado and Purdue. He is out of Merced College in California and is 6-foot-5 and 320 pounds.

Tongamoa will help fortify a defensive line graduating six seniors after this upcoming season. He becomes the 18th commit of the class of 2017 for ISU and the 3rd JUCO overall. Tongamoa is the second-highest ranked prospect in the 2017 class for the Cyclones.

Expect the staff to continue to recruit the defensive line going forward. You can check out highlights of Tongamoa below.
