Who Iowa State Added

 

The Scouting Report

Jalen Martin: Martin is a lengthy 6-foot-3 sure-handed receiver who stretches the field on the outside but also has the versatility to play elsewhere on the field and has played several positions throughout his high school career.  — Scout's Alex Halsted

Deshaunte Jones: Jones is a quick twitch athlete with great burst. He heeds to add bulk and strength, but he's a special athlete with special skills with the ball in his hands. A threat to score each time he touches the ball.Scout's Dave Berk

 

The Position Situation

One of Iowa State's deepest and most talented positions recently has been the receiver position, and that likely won't be much different in 2016. The Cyclones will enter the spring with the likes of experienced receivers Allen Lazard, Dondre Daley and Jauan Wesley among others and have several youngsters from the 2015 class in Carson Epps, Denver Johnson and Hakeem Butler who could continue to emerge. With the addition of Jalen Martin and Deshaunte Jones, Iowa State continues to bolster the position, adding another outside presence in Martin and a dynamic athlete in Jones. Both could make impacts in 2016 but neither has to be the guy given the depth at the position.
