Cyclone Commitment Roundup Week 5

The good news is that Iowa State's commits continue to win but the bad news is that three are suffering from shoulder injuries.

Beau Blankenship:

Beau helped #2 ranked Norman North to a 26-13 victory over Westmore High School by rushing for 150 yards on 21 carries and scoring one touchdown. They are now 4-0 on the season but Beau will be sitting out this week when they take on Moore High School due to a separated shoulder.

Kyle Lichtenberg:

Bettendorf is fourth ranked and still undefeated (4-0) after Kyle helped them to a tough 24-16 victory over North Scott High School. Kyle said that is a nice victory because they proved they could comeback after trailing early. This week is Kyle's homecoming game against Davenport West.

Conor Boffeli:

Boffeli dislocated his shoulder in Valley's 35-10 victory over Ames. He will only sit out this week's game at Mason City. He told Cyclone Sports Report that he will be having surgery after the season to make sure everything is okay before he heads to Iowa State next year. Conor will be in Ames for the Kansas game on an unofficial visit.

Taylor Martin and Troy Butler:

The defensive duo from Antelope Valley College got their first victory of the season and both Cyclone commits had solid games. Troy Butler tied for the team lead with 11 tackles, 1 sack, and 3 pass break-ups. Taylor Martin added 2 tackles and one sack as the Marauders defeated Santa Barbara College 28-14. Next up for them is a home game against Santa Monica College.

Ryan Mosby:

Had seven tackles in three quarters before leaving with a shoulder injury during Rockwall Heath's 48-28 victory over Greenville High School. He said his shoulder is just badly bruised and that he fully expects to play this week against rival Rockwall High School.

A.J. Klein:

A.J. had a huge game with 12 tackles and one forced fumble in Kimberly's 37-7 homecoming victory over Appleton West. Next up is Neenah High School and right after the game A.J. will heading out with his family on drive through the night to Ames for his official visit. "I can't explain how excited I am," said Klein. "There is so much anticipation and I have been checking out Iowa State's web site for so long. I can't wait to see the players walk through the tunnel and to see all the fans during the game."

Josh Lenz:

It was another tough week for Lenz and his Dubuque Hempstead teammates as they lost 34-21 to City High School. Lenz was limited to 60 yards on 14 carries and also had one catch for 52 yards. Josh will be taking an unofficial visit this weekend to Ames for the Kansas game. Next up for Hempstead is Dubuque Senior High School.
