Cyclones Get an Early Start on Antoine Albert

After failing last season to land its top JUCO cornerback targets, Iowa State has set its sights early on Antoine Albert, a 6-foot-2 cornerback with 4.5 40-yard-dash speed.

The Cyclones offered in March. Todd Sturdy is the lead recruiter, as is the case with most California prospects.

Albert played his high school ball at Oakland Technical High School. Last season at Diablo Valley JUCO, he played safety, corner, defensive end and linebacker, but projects as a cornerback.

"I am an aggressive player, always have my hands on the receiver," Albert told AllCyclones.com. "I like to bump 'em, bump and grind. I enjoy hittin' too."

Albert is on an official visit this weekend at Oregon State and plans on taking most of his visits to the schools that have offered him — Iowa State, UTSA and UTEP, he says.

"Oh yeah, I have to," he said.

The Cyclones have an interesting connection in that former wideout Aaron Horne and Albert are cousins.

Albert believes he will be able to enroll in January.
