Recruiting Update: Indianola's Todd Blythe

Cyclone Nation caught up with Indianola WR Todd Blythe at home shortly after he attended Saturday's 45-3 demolition of Kansas to verify rumors that he was closed to making a decision.

Indianola WR Todd Blythe, ranked as the state of Iowa's second-best prospect according to CLONED in the upcoming first issue of Cyclone Nation Magazine, told CN online this afternoon that Iowa State is his leader.

However, the 6 feet 5 inch wide receiver with a reported 4.55/40-yard dash time did not commit to the Cyclones today during a pre-game meal with Coach Dan McCarney. Earlier this week, Cyclone Nation had learned that Blythe may be nearing a decision.

"I talked it over with my coach and parents and I decided to wait until two or three weeks into the season before making a decision," said Blythe, when reached at his home this afternoon following Iowa State's 45-3 demolition of Kansas. "Iowa State is my leader." 

Blythe, whose Indianola team opens the season Sept. 6 against Sioux City North, said he is still considering Iowa and Kansas State as well. Blythe is a four-year varsity starter who was named all-state as a junior after hauling in 54 receptions for 790 yards and eight touchdowns. On defense he collected eight inteceptions as a defensive back.
