DeLira and Ayeni both leaving Iowa State football

The quest to get to 85 scholarships or below continues for Iowa State head coach Matt Campbell as it was reported on Wednesday that two more players will part ways with the program. Backup quarterback Dom DeLira will part ways with the program, as was first reported by Cyclone Alert.

DeLira was a three-star prospect out of Lake Travis High School in Austin, Texas, and chose the Cyclones over Houston and Rice. He likely would’ve been deep on the depth chart to start the fall.

Defensive lineman Terry Ayeni will also forgo his senior season of football for the Cyclones, per Scout‘s Alex Halsted. He’s suffered multiple injuries throughout his career that have prevented him from seening the field.
