Cyclone Commitment Roundup Week 2

It was another perfect week of high school football for the Iowa State commitments but our two recent pledges from Antelope Valley College suffered an opening week loss.

Josh Lenz:

Josh helped Dubuque Hempstead to a 21-12 victory over crosstown rival Dubuque Walhert. He had a great all-around game as he had 13 carries for 69 yards rushing and a touchdown, 3 catches for 31 yards receiving, and a 68 yard interception return for a touchdown to cap things off. Josh told Cyclone Sports Report that he may go to see the Cyclones take on Iowa this weekend and that he will also likely be at the Kansas game in early October. This week Hempstead will go for their third straight win against Waterloo East.

A.J. Klein:

His nine tackles helped lead Kimberly (WI) High School to a 24-7 victory over Appleton North. "We held them to no score until late in the third quarter," he said. "Then we gave up a couple big runs which we can't do in the future." Next up for Kimberly is a home game against Menasha High School.

Conor Boffeli:

Conor helped lead Valley to a 22-0 victory over their rival Dowling High School. His blocking helped Valley rush for 220 yards and he also hauled in one catch for 15 yards. Boffeli also spent his Saturday night in Ames watching the Cyclones defeat Kent State. "It was a great atmosphere and really an entertaining game to watch," he said. "It was nice because before the game I got to talk with Coach Chizik, McFarland,and Fountain." Next up for Boffeli this week is a road game at Marshalltown.

Kyle Lichtenberg:

Kyle also did a great job blocking this weekend helping Bettendorf rush for 250 yards before resting the last quarter in a 52-12 route of Muscatine. He also was in Ames on Saturday with his father and really enjoyed the experience. "I had a great time talking with the coaches," said Lichtenberg. "It seems like there is a whole new look to the program and I really liked getting to go in the lockeroom. It was awsome. Lichtenberg will try to help Bettendorf keep their perfect record this week when they play host to Davenport North.

Beau Blankenship:

Due to a 58-0 route of Norman High School, Beau only got to play in the first half this week. The Norman North star running back still had a great night rushing 8 times for 75 yards and a touchdown. He also caught 2 passes for 40 yards. Blankenship said he had a great talk recently with Iowa State assistant coach Shawn Raney and said he's excited that Iowa State is off to a great start. Next up for Blankenship this week is a game against Muskogee.

Ryan Mosby:

Ryan helped Rockwall Heath High School get off to a 1-0 start with a 43-22 victory over Sherman High School. He missed some of the game due to cramping but still was able to come up with 7 tackles, 1 sack, and 1 forced fumble. This week Rockwall Heath takes on Arlington Segiun High School.

Troy Butler and Taylor Martin:

The two recent commits from Antelope Valley College suffered a tough 54-14 loss in their opening game against College of the Canyons. Butler led the defense with 9 tackles and Martin had 1 tackle and 1 fumble recovery. Next up for them this week is a road game at Ventura Junior College.
