Kansas – After a short break following the end of the 2020 college football season, Iowa State football players have been back on campus for almost a month now. Although spring practice dates haven’t been publicly announced yet, the team will start its preparations for the 2021 season at some point in the coming weeks. With players back on campus, Iowa State’s 2021 roster has been released, which means we get our first look at the official measurements of Iowa State’s seven early enrollees.
As it currently stands, Iowa State’s 2021 recruiting class sits at No. 59 in the country and No. 8 in the Big 12. Iowa State has 18 commits signed and two transfers signed as well. Iowa State has an average commit rating of 0.8494, which equates to a mid-three-star recruit. During the early signing period in December, Iowa State head coach Matt Campbell praised Iowa State’s 2021 class.
“This is a group that number one, fits the culture we have created inside of our walls,” Campbell said. “We truly believe you win with people, and this is a group that embodies the characteristics which have allowed us to find success at Iowa State. In addition to the character of this recruiting class, I couldn’t be more proud of how this group has approached academic success, as they have collectively shown a commitment to reaching their full potential in the classroom.”
