Cyclones Set To Host CyHawk Visitors

Iowa State's football recruiting efforts will ramp up beginning Saturday with the CyHawk game as the Cyclones bring in three official visitors and a handful of prospects for unofficial visits.

Iowa State took Week 1 slow when it came to official visitors, but things will begin to heat up beginning Saturday as the Cyclones get visits from three talented defensive backs and a number of the top 2017 prospects from the state of Iowa.

Here's a look at this week's visitors.

The 6-foot-3 Walker sees himself as a cornerback at the next level and is being recruited primarily by Iowa State defensive ends coach Stan Eggen. Walker hails from the same junior college as two Iowa State defensive starters, Demond Tucker and Jordan Harris, and will spend time with the pair on his visit.

There isn't a clear timeline for Walker, though he'll likely cut his list within the next month. He also holds offers from the likes of Arizona State, Illinois, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Southern Miss and Louisville, which he plans to visit next week.

Iowa State has been on White for some time now, offering the defensive back from California back in March. With White there is more familiarity as the Cyclones have two other players from his high school on roster including running back Sheldon Croney and defensive back Kamari Cotton-Moya.

White ideally would like to make a commitment in-season, but currently plans to use all five official visits. He expects to stop at Washington State, Nevada and Colorado State at some point, and all have also offered.

Grady is a safety out of Georgia who also holds offers from Louisville, Boston College, Georgia State and others. Ranked by as the No. 8 safety in the state of Georgia, Grady had four interceptions and 38 tackles as a junior.

He has also heard from North Carolina, North Carolina State and Georgia Tech.

The Commits

Two 2016 commits will be on hand Saturday. The Cyclones will have Carson Lensing in town as they might nearly every home game this season and will also get a visit from Jake Hansen, who is making the long trip from Florida for an unofficial visit.

The 2017 Prospects

As is the case with every home game, Iowa State will have a large number of other unofficial visitors at Jack Trice Stadium. For the CyHawk game, that list includes a handful of the top 2017 prospects from within the state including Jacob Coons (Solon), Devon Moore (Waterloo West), Tristan Wirfs (Mount Vernon), Colin Newell (Ames) and Iowa commit Coy Kirkpatrick (Madrid).
