Iowa Western Community College offensive lineman Josh Knipfel officially signed his National Letter of Intent with Iowa State on Tuesday, according to the JUCO program’s Twitter account. The 6-foot-6, 315-pound prospect will be eligible to play for the Cyclones this fall.
He’ll have four years to play three after being a full qualifier out of high school and only playing one season for the Reivers.

Knipfel chose Iowa State over other offers from Michigan State, West Virginia and a few other programs. Northern Iowa was the only Division I program to show interest in Knipfel after a prep career at Hampton-Dumont that was capped by multiple all-state selections as a senior.
Birdie told me the other night if this Knipfel kid committed that he was good enough to possibly start on day one.
