The 6-foot-3, 310-pound prospect is rated as the No. 7 junior college defensive tackle in the country by 247Composite. The three-star recruit is the No. 58 junior college player in the country by the same metric.
Lima, a product of El Camino College, committed to Iowa State on August 7 over Oregon, Arizona State, TCU, Oregon State and a handful of other programs.
He joins defensive end Matt Leo and wide receiver Matt Eaton as players to sign with Iowa State this week. All three players will enroll in Ames for the spring semester.
