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