Meet Trey Baysinger

It's obvious that one of the top recruiting priorities of the new staff was bolstering the offensive line. Along those lines, the Cyclones signed this standout performer from the Texas high school ranks.

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  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.
