BREAKING BARRIERS. Solomon Young was a critical part of Iowa State’s 10-2 record to close the season last year, but now he’ll be tasked with doing more as a key piece of this year’s team.

TOP OF MIND. 4-star Memphis point guard Tyler Harris considers Iowa State to be on the top of his four team list after his visit to Ames.

DIGGIN’ DUGGAN. Iowa State is in early on 2019 4-star in-state quarterback Max Duggan.

WATER IS WET. USA Today released their 2015-2016 look at NCAA member school financials, and in a move surprising no one, Iowa State is among the lowest spenders in the Big 12.

ONE OF MANY. Baylor settled a lawsuit filed by a woman who accused them of creating a “hunting ground for sexual assault predators”. Expect many, many more settlements in the future.
