Iowa State, a month or so into its evaluations under a new offensive staff, has begun to target a few quarterbacks who might fit coordinator Mark Mangino's system.
There's another key name on the radar, though, one the Cyclones are showing plenty of interest in: Alec Ingold of Bay Port (WI) High.
The 6-foot-2 Ingold, a dual-threat type who amassed 2,182 total yards, 23 touchdowns and tallied a 60.6 completion percentage and picked up 6.1 yards per carry as a junior, told AllCyclones.com on Thursday that he's planning an unofficial visit to Ames soon and hears from Iowa State routinely.
"I've gotten more handwritten letters from them than any other school," Ingold said. "I know they run a prolific offense, an offense with high scoring power. They play on a huge stage in the Big 12."
Ingold has an offer from North Dakota State and has garnered interest from childhood favorite Wisconsin, Michigan State, Minnesota, Central Michigan, Ball State, South Dakota State, Northern Illinois and Central Michigan.
The 2015 passer has been to Ames on an unofficial visit before. He says graduate assistant Mitchell Moore is his primary recruiter, the two often exchanging direct messages on Twitter.
Per his hudl page, Ingold has recorded a 4.63 40-yard-dash.
