Cyclones Offer Athletic OT

Iowa State picked up the recruiting pace on Monday, extending three known offers, one to an offensive lineman who says the coaches him like for his "hand-fighting" ability.

Iowa State became the fourth FBS school to offer Adam Lemke-Bell, the 2015 Oak Park & River Forest (IL) offensive tackle getting the call from the Cyclones on Monday evening.

"I actually talked to coaches (Derek) Day, (Lou) Ayeni and head coach (Paul) Rhoads," Lemke-Bell told on Monday.


Central Michigan, Syracuse and Western Michigan have offered Lemke-Bell, a 6-foot-5, 255-pound three-star. He also holds a bid from Harvard.

Lemke-Bell visited Iowa State on April 5.

"It was awesome, the facilities are insane and the campus is beautiful," he said. "The coaches and people in the program are really awesome."

An All-Area selection as a junior, Lemke-Bell uses his wrestling skills on the gridiron.

"From what I understand, [Iowa State] liked my athleticism and my hands and feet," he said. "I know a little bit about leverage and hand-fighting and they like that too."

As for a timetable for a decision, Lemke-Bell says he's still trying to iron that out.
