Frere ready to join brother at Iowa State

High school football practices are just around the corner and for Iowa State's newest commitments it takes a lot of the pressure off of their senior campaigns.


Nate Frere committed to the Cyclones shortly after attending Iowa State's padded team camp in June.


Since then, the 6-foot-2, 270 pound, Frere said he's been lifting weights to gear up for the coming season.


Frere will play defensive tackle at Muscatine High School; he said he will probably play the same position at Iowa State.


Frere has set high goals for his high school team this season.


"Playoffs for sure, I'd like a state championship but we'll see," he said.


As a junior, Frere was a first-team all-state defender, as well as a first team all-conference selection. He had 13 tackles-for-loss and fours sacks.


To make the jump from high school to the Big 12, Frere said the ISU coaching staff told him a couple things to work on.


"They told me to work on foot speed and maintain my weight right now, so that's what I'm trying to do," he said.


Frere said he's a solidly committed to Iowa State and looks forward to joining his brother Nick, who will be a linebacker. Nick redshirted his initial collegiate season after finishing his high school career with 244 tackles (133 of which came his senior year).


Recently the brothers haven't done much training together.


"He's in Ames," Nate said. "I haven't been working out with him this summer."
