Hamler is rated as the No. 42 wide receiver in the class by 247 Composite. He’s the No. 301 prospect overall.
Arizona, Oregon, Penn State and Michigan State are the other four schools included in his top five. The Farmington, Mich. native also held offers from Louisville, Michigan, Maryland, Nebraska, Tennessee and a handful of others.
Iowa State head coach Matt Campbell first offered Hamler when he was the head coach at Toledo and the speedy receiver was in the eighth grade. Hamler took an unofficial visit to Ames back in June.
Iowa State is looking to add Hamler to their 2017 class that includes two other wide receivers, Arkansas three-star Josh Johnson and three-star JUCO Matt Eaton. The Cyclones currently have 19 commits in their class.
