Street Looking at Iowa State

2016 Hewitt-Trussville (AL) running back Jarrion Street has netted double-digit offers, including a Power 5 offer from Iowa State, which he plans to eventually visit.

Interest in Hewitt-Trussville (AL) running back Jarrion Street has resulted in double-digit offers to date, but the spring evaluation period is continuing on.

Street, who is a 6-foot-2, 200-plus-pound back out of Alabama, has drawn interest from a number of schools, most significantly his one Power 5 offer from Iowa State. Other offers include Cincinnati, Memphis, Southern Mississippi, Arkansas State and Georgia Southern among many others.

“Right after the season, that’s when it started to pick up,” Street told of his recruitment. “This spring evaluation has been really good, but I haven’t had any new offers come in from coaches that have been out there.”

Street feels that two schools, however, Mississippi State and Louisville, could be close to pulling the trigger on an offer. So for now, the big back is waiting.

Iowa State offered Street back in March to become his lone Power 5 offer, and the Cyclones have stayed in close contact with the running back since. Street’s primary contact with the Cyclones has been running backs coach Louis Ayeni.

“I’ve been in most contact with Coach Louis,” Street said. “Me and him had a good talk and I think we have a pretty good relationship. He sees me as coming in as the biggest back that they have. He said I can come in and be that huge back and be an every down back. I can be a big back they’ve been looking for who can take tackles, has speed, can run in between blocks and all that.”

As a junior at Hewitt-Trussville, Street rushed for 693 yards and eight touchdowns on 103 carries, averaging 6.7 yards per carry. He’s working this summer to get bigger ahead of his senior season while also improving on his self-reported 4.45 40-yard-dash number.

Street plans to attend camps that fit into his schedule around his team’s 7-on-7 tournaments. He plans to eventually make it to Iowa State, but hasn’t determined whether that will be via camp in June or an official visit down the road.

“We talked about coming down for a camp,” Street said. “My coach is going to drive me down there or I’ll take an official visit when the season starts.”

Street doesn’t have a timeline for making a decision.

“I haven’t thought about a time, but I just want to wait it out and make sure whatever school I choose will be a great fit for me and my family feels good about it,” Street said. “I just want to wait it out and kind of weigh all my options.”
