Iowa State’s cornerback board has been an odd one. They have had quite a few shuffle ups and decommitments like Quran Hafiz and Octavious Morgan. They are still pursuing some of those prospects and others like Keisean Nixon. However, due to the uncertainty of the cornerback board and who will actually end up in the class by the time National Signing Day is all said and done, the staff has continued to offer prospects this late into the process.
One of the prospects Iowa State recently offered was 2017 Hollywood, FL three-star CB Jeffrey Lubin. The 6-foot2, 166-pounder out of the Sunshine State currently holds offers from programs like Pittsburgh, North Carolina Central, Rutgers, and a few others. Iowa State was his latest offer and it came from cornerbacks coach D.K. McDonald.
“Iowa State is a program that's on the rise, they got a new coaching staff so I feel like they are in the rebuilding stage right now,” Lubin said about the Cyclones.”
“I got my offer a week ago Thursday after I came from my game, Coach McDonald called me. We spoke for quite sometime, then he told me they are offering me a scholarship. We talked about my family, hobbies stuff like that. He's cool, I still have much to learn about him and the program.”
Lubin hasn’t taken any visits so far within his recruitment due to some of the late offers from other programs that he has received. But he is close to planning and finalizing his official visit plans, as well as releasing his top three. He will start taking officials this month and December after his high school season.
“I'll narrow it to three sometime real soon. I'm going to start scheduling my officials soon, I'm waiting till after high school football is over. I plan on visiting Iowa State late November or in December. I'm looking forward to seeing the atmosphere of the campus, the dorms and the stadium.”
The South Broward High School standout is currently looking at a wide list of schools in North Carolina, Akron, Pittsburgh, North Carolina Central, Iowa State, and Georgia who is showing interest but hasn’t offered yet. Lubin will start to get a clearer picture of where he will wants to go after he releases his top three. But when he does, during his official’s he’s looking at a few major factors.
“The biggest factor for me is where I can play early and have a factor on the program. I'm also looking into schools with good business or accounting programs.”
