Iowa State Set With Four Official Visitors

With three commitments in the last two weeks, Iowa State is pushing ahead on the recruiting trail and will bring in four more prospective players on official visits for the Kansas game.

Iowa State has used only one weekend for official visits to this point in the season, but saw two commitments stem directly from that game in recent weeks and has since spent several days on the recruiting trail during the bye week. 

Now, Iowa State will use the coming weekend to bring in four more prospective recruits on official visits.

A 6-foot-5, 245-pound offensive tackle out of Jacksonville, Solomon Kindley is a talented prospect who has garnered a number of Power 5 offers. Kindley claims offers from the likes of Auburn, Cincinnati, Florida, Louisville, Miami (FL), North Carolina and Tennessee among several other schools. 

There is a chance that Kindley will move to the interior at the collegiate level and he had said early in his recruitment that Florida and Miami were the teams to beat, but getting the prized recruit to campus is a strong first step for the Cyclones.

Florida cornerback Josh Dunn committed to South Florida on Aug. 1, but holds offers from schools including Cincinnati, Georgia, Kentucky, Viriginia and Wisconsin in addition to Iowa State and is still willing to take trips as he will this weekend to Ames. The 5-foot-11, 185-pound cornerback is quick and had Iowa State ranked highly in his initial mix before committing to South Florida before his senior season. 

One weekend after taking an official visit to Minnesota, linebacker Andre Polk will return to the midwest for a stop in Ames. Polk is a 6-foot-3, 195-pound linebacker with offers from Louisville, Minnesota, South Florida and several others in addition to Iowa State. It would appear Polk's top three might be Minnesota, Iowa State and Louisville, but there isn't currently a clear timetable for his decision. 

Arnold Azunna will be the lone non-Floridian on an official visit this weekend as the Texas defensive back will be visitor No. 4. Azunna also holds a Power 5 offer from Illinois and has drawn offers from Colorado State, Fresno State, Air Force and Nevada as well. Azunna, who has also drawn interest from Pitt, TCU and Texas among others, has already visited Colorado State and this will be his second stop.
