Willis Singleton, a three-star defensive lineman from Warren Township, IL (north side of Chicago) has committed to Iowa State over offers from Illinois, Cincinnati, Louisville, Michigan State, some garbage dump in eastern Iowa, and a host others. Willis is a top 100 defensive tackle in the nation, and a top 25 recruit in his home state.
COMMITTED !!! #cyclonenation pic.twitter.com/V5ukv6H315— Willis Singleton Jr (J.R.) (@willissingjr) July 15, 2019
At 6’1” 301 lbs, Singleton has a body built for the nose tackle position, which Iowa State is needing to replace following the departure of Ray Lima after this season.
As per 247 sports, Singleton clocks in with a 5.3 forty time and a 25 inch vertical jump. His athletic skill set will add to an already stout defense that’s known for holding opponents well below their season averages on a regular. Jon Heacock is more than likely pretty happy with this commitment.
This season was the most fun I’ve ever had playing the game of football. I want to thank all the seniors for everything you’ve taught me and thank you to @wthsfb for instilling the weight room into us last offseason because It makes a huge difference! https://t.co/cCzq1ueWRw— Willis Singleton Jr (J.R.)
