Iowa State and receiver Jauan Wesley are parting ways as the junior receiver is no longer with the program, a source told AllCyclones.com.
The 5-foot-11, 180-pound Wesley was Iowa State's third-leading receiver in 2015, reeling in 30 catches for 301 yards and two touchdowns in 10 games as a sophomore. He had 10 catches for 107 yards in eight games as a true freshman for the Cyclones in 2014.
Wesley was suspended indefinitely in January 2015 after he was pulled over by Iowa State University Police, who found him in a car with marijuana and charged him with OWI first offense. Wesley later missed Iowa State's 2015 season-opener against Northern Iowa for what Paul Rhoads called a violation of the student-athlete conduct policy.
Wesley went through spring ball under first-year head coach Matt Campbell in recent months, but the sides have now parted ways for various reasons. The Illinois native has already signed his release with Iowa State.
With Wesley gone, redshirt junior Trever Ryen will likely be the key focal point at Iowa State's slot/multi-purpose back position. The Cyclones will also have redshirt sophomore Orion Salters there and added four-star slot/M position Deshaunte Jones in the 2016 class. One intriguing addition at the position for 2017 — in addition to a player the program may add in the 2017 recruiting class — is 5-foot-10 slot Amechie Walker, who transferred from New Hampshire and is sitting out in 2016.
