Cyclones Scoop: Updating the 2015 Targets

With 13 commitments locked in for 2015, Iowa State is nearing the end of what is likely to be a small class. There are still, however, a number of key targets that remain

Iowa State has received verbal pledges from 13 recruits for the 2015 Class, and the number is likely to be capped after another handful or so commitments, meaning the class has nearly reached its limit.

There are, however, a number of prospects that the Cyclones have keyed in on based on interest they have received. Here is a look at where a handful of those prospects currently stand.

This list is only a selection of some of the key prospects.

  • Jamal Milan, DT — Milan made an official visit to Ames when Iowa State hosted Baylor in late September and left impressed. That sentiment hasn't changed as the high school defensive tackle out of Al Raby (Chicago, Ill.) told that Iowa State is currently at the "top" of his list. Milan will make a visit to Maryland on Nov. 15 and is expected to visit North Carolina in December.

  • Antoine Albert, CB — The JUCO cornerback has drawn a lot of interest from Iowa State and tells that the Cyclones remain in his "top-5." Albert says he may soon visit Mississippi State, and will visit Arizona following his season. That's where some confusion comes in. Albert said if he feels comfortable, he may decide around Halloween. However, if he doesn't feel ready, the corner said he'll delay his decision until after the season.

  • Demond Tucker, DT — Tucker continues to draw interest from Iowa State after the recent commitment of DT Xavier Pegues. Tucker is a highly-touted JUCO, and the Cyclones would certainly take him. According to one source, Tucker regards Iowa State highly in his pictue. He's expected to make a visit at some point, but as it goes with recruiting, that remains up in the air.

  • Darrell Stewart, WR — Stewart will have a coach in attendance for his game this week in Houston as Iowa State is still very much interested in the Boise State commit. The Cyclones were regarded as a top-5 school when Stewart made a visit to Ames for the season-opener.

  • Bobby Leath, DT — The three key schools in Leath's picture appear to be Illinois, Arizona and Iowa State. Word has been that the Cyclones could be the leader if his recruitment ended now, and Iowa State has certainly shown a lot of interest.

  • Jerminic Smith, WR — Smith got a visit from an Iowa State coach last week when the team traveled to Austin, Texas, to take on the Longhorns. He recently tweeted that Iowa State and Iowa are the lone schools to make the trip to watch him.
