Chicago St. Rita three-star running back Tommy Mister had in-home visits with Iowa State and Indiana this week and remains committed to the Cyclones but will take an official visit to see the Hoosiers over the weekend of Dec. 13.
"I'm still committed to Iowa State but my Mom and Dad want me to check out Indiana," Mister told AllCyclones.com. "Nebraska and Wisconsin, they came through [school]. I'm fully committed they just want me to make sure Iowa State's where I want to be."
ISU graduate assistant Derek Day, the Chicago-area recruiter, stopped by Monday and helped nail down Mister's Jan. 24 official visit to Ames, where he'll be joined by Allen Lazard and Jauan Wesley.
"It was nice," Mister said. "My Mom, she liked him. Coach Day said the future of the offense could come in [on that visit]. The coaching staff, they want us to develop as much chemistry as possible."
If Mister ends up at Iowa State, he'll room with Lazard.
"I'm pretty sure I'll go to Iowa State, but you never know," he said. "If I go I know I'll be rooming with Lazard. We talked about it. We want to [go on the official visit] together to get to know each other more, to bond for the weekend."
As for Indiana, the Hoosiers have already extended an offer and sent running backs coach Deland McCullough to Mister's home on Tuesday.
"It went really well, my Mom liked him," Mister said. "We liked what he's been talking about. They've been recruiting me since I've been a sophomore. He hasn't stopped talking to me since I've committed. My mom wants to get down there."
There is a chance Mister takes visits to Syracuse and Wisconsin. The Orange haven't offered him while the Badgers have. Nebraska has also come by but talks haven't gotten too serious.
Mister is wrapping up a season in which St. Rita went 12-2 and won the city championship. The quarterback (he'll play running back in college) was named to three different all-state teams and four all-area teams and was player of the game in the Chicago Prep Bowl and won Offensive MVP of the Chicago CCL Blue conference, a very tough division.
"I had an awesome season, it was amazing," Mister said. "We won the city championship and I rushed for over 1,700 yards and threw for over 1,400 yards and had exactly 30 rushing touchdowns and 11 passing touchdowns."
