Trey Baysinger hails from one of the legendary high school football programs in America, Carter High School in Dallas (Texas). Baysinger was an all-district selection by the Dallas Morning News and is rated a 2-star prospect by Scout.com. He chose the Cyclones over Kansas, Tulsa, UTEP, Baylor, and Kansas State.
CN: How did you hear about the Cyclones?
Baysinger: I found out about Iowa State from (one of my high school coaches). I then made the decision to become a Cyclone because I had a great visit and good conversation with the strength and conditioning coach and a chance to play early. I really connected with Coach Sheppard. I also enjoyed being hosted by a number of players.
CN: Early playing time was an important factor in your decision then?
Baysinger: Yes. My high school coach talked to me about Iowa State's new coaching staff and stressed that means all jobs are open at every position, and that being a part of the new head coach's recruiting class would be to my advantage.
CN: How does your family feel about you going out of state to play college football?
Baysinger: They think I made a great decision and Iowa State is the place to be for me.
CN: What was your proudest accomplishment of your senior season?
Baysinger: Getting a scholarship offer from Iowa State was my proudest accomplishment. One of the reasons I'm really excited about joining the Cyclones is I really like Coach Chizik.
CN: Do you have a major yet?
Baysinger: Veterinary Sciences.
CN: What will you be doing this summer to get ready to be a Cyclone?
Baysinger: I am working on getting bigger, faster, stronger.
Baysinger comes from good blood lines. His father, Tracy, was all-state in Texas and his uncle played at Oklahoma.
