Bacon Bits: Iowa State Football Recruiting Notes - 9/3/19

A few crootin’ nuggets from this past weekend.

Hey Cyclone fans, I hope you are hungry. Hungry for some bacon because who the hell isn’t always hungry for bacon? Ok, it isn’t real bacon, but this is my feature for Iowa State recruiting tidbits I have during the week. Anything on my mind or anything that doesn’t go on my recruiting big boards will be posted here as “Bacon Bits”. Whether you like it crispy, chewy or somewhere in-between.

This past weekend, Iowa State hosted several football recruits for opening weekend. The prospects on campus ranged from the class of 2020 all the way to the class of 2022. Alongside the uncommitted prospects were a few current commits as well. However, this week, I wanted to really focus in on the uncommitted prospects to get their thoughts on the visit. Here are some of the best quotes I got from this past weekend. Also, I know many of you are asking about basketball recruits and to be honest with you, I haven’t dabbled much into basketball, so I am going to try and shift some of my focus on that as well.
