Gilreath Holds Offer From Cyclones

Speed kills in college football and David Gilreath has that. With his 4.39 40-yard dash in Iowa City a few weeks back, Gilreath's stock has risen. Find out what's going on between Gilreath and Iowa State here in this CN recruiting update.

David Gilreath is a 5'10, 155 pound receiver out of Plymouth, Minn., and Iowa State was quick to offer the athlete after he ran a 4.39 40 yard dash in Iowa City a few weeks ago. Gilreath's time was the quickest of the day.


"I thought that I upped my stock a lot," said Gilreath.


Gilreath was happy about the offer from Iowa State.


"I thought it was pretty cool and everything. I don't really know much about Iowa State right now. I'm getting a bunch of letters," said Gilreath.


Gilreath said that he's been in contact with Iowa State special teams coach Brian Schneider and he's happy with what he's seen so far.


"I talk to Coach Schneider. He's really cool."


As a junior, in 10 games Gilreath caught 48 passes for 702 yards and tacked on 15 touchdowns. He also rushed for 150 yards and one touchdown. Gilreath also returned two kick returns for touchdowns. He was first team all-conference and first team all-metro. Gilreath was also honorable mention all-state.


"I didn't have that good of a season in my eyes. I kind of judge myself a little differently than most," said Gilreath.


Gilreath said that he watched Iowa State on television a lot last season.


"I watched Iowa State a lot this year. They pass the ball all over."


Along with Iowa State, Minnesota has offered Gilreath. Gilreath told CN that he recently received a verbal offer from Iowa last week as well.


"I'm keeping my doors wide open. Minnesota was the first school that offered me so they are my front runner but it is wide open right now."


When picking out a school, Gilreath said that he doesn't want to go far away from home.


"The first thing that I want to look at is education. I want to look into playing time and location. I don't want to go that far away from home. I want to take a visit sometime in the summer."
