Downing, who is top-rated offensive lineman in Iowa, is the No. 20 offensive tackle in the class and No. 464 player overall, according to 247. His .8455 247Composite rating makes him the third highest-rated prospect in the Cyclones’ 2018 class.
If he officially signs with Iowa State, he’ll be the second highest-rated offensive line prospect to join the program since Matt Campbell arrived in Ames behind only Sean Foster in 2016.
Iowa State was the first school to offer the in-state prospect all the way back in December 2015. His visit to campus on Thursday was his 12th since picking up that scholarship offer.
The No. 4 prospect in Iowa chose the Cyclones over offers from Iowa, Minnesota, Kansas State and Missouri. He visited Iowa and Minnesota earlier this week.
Downing is the seventh commitment in Iowa State’s 2018 class and the first offensive lineman in the group. The Cyclones’ class has climbed close to 20 spots to No. 37 in the 247Composite team class rankings with the additions of Downing and Mississippi wide receiver C.J. Bolar this week.
