The decision to allow Kenneth Lynn to move from cornerback to receiver, as he requested in recent weeks, was not made lightly. There, in fact, was one key reason Iowa State ultimately felt comfortable with the move: The Cyclones feel strongly about five cornerbacks in particular.
Aside from the return of cornerbacks Nigel Tribune and Sam Richardson from last season, Iowa State has welcomed JUCO transfer Jomal Wiltz and redshirt freshmen Brian Peavy and De'Monte Ruth to the mix this spring. That group of newcomers has delivered no shortage of playmaking ability.
Secondary coach Maurice Linguist had praise for the young group, primarily Wiltz and Peavy, when talking about his position recently.
