Julian Good-Jones suspended for ISU’s season opener

Iowa State starting right tackle Julian Good-Jones will have to wait at least one more week to make his first career start.

The redshirt freshman was listed as the top right tackle on ISU’s depth chart, but has been suspended for a violation of team rules for the Cyclones’ season opener against Northern Iowa.

The 6-foot-5-inch, 295 pound, Cedar Rapids native had impressed the Iowa State coaches since they arrived in December. It’s not completely clear how ISU’s starting group will shake out, but this is our publisher’s best guess.

Iowa State and Northern Iowa will kick off at 7 p.m. at Jack Trice Stadium and will be televised on Cyclones.tv.
