Cyclones Pick up Two Florida Commits

After the long wait, Cyclone Nation can finally confirm the commitments of two Florida athletes. Find out who they are and what one of them had to say here.

After the long wait to confirm their commitments, Cyclone Nation can finally report that Kellen White and Harry Scott will both be Cyclones next season.


Iowa State picked up two commits that happened to be high school teammates and long time friends. Kellen White is a 5'11, 180 pound defensive back with 4.5 speed and his teammate, and Harry Scott is a 6'2, 208 pound running back. Both players are from Sarasota, Florida and play for Riverview High School.


Last year White was an All-State selection and had 110 tackles. He also had eight pass breakups, four forced fumbles and two interceptions.  


When Cyclone Nation talked to White, he was still unaware of his friend and teammates commitment to the Cyclones as well. Here is what went down.


White: Really I'm trying to get another one of my teammates up there with me. Harry Scott.


CN: He just committed today too.

White: (Showing excitement and laughing) Oh ok!


When talking about their friendship it was obvious that the two will fit in well together at Iowa State.


"We've actually been playing football together since we were five. That's going to be fun. It will be a really good situation for the team and for us," said White.


Though they both committed to Iowa State, and they happened to commit on the same day, it was not planned. Sounds like fate to this reporter.


"We've talked about what school we were going to go too but we never really talked about going to the same one. It just kind of happened," said White.


White talked about how Iowa State's Chris Ash had a big impact on him committing to Iowa State.


"Coach Ash was always there for me. He's a really nice guy and will really work for me. I think I can fit right into the program," said White.


White also talked about how the pair's high school season isn't going as well as planned. He said that being a senior he expected a lot and the team isn't performing how he had wanted but he's excited for next year.


"It's really hard to explain actually. There's a lot of excitement. It's a really good feeling not to have to worry about the recruiting process anymore," said White.


White is thinking either about careers in physical therapy or coaching when he gets to Iowa State next fall.
