RECRUITING: Iowa State lands commitment from IWCC offensive lineman

Iowa State landed a huge additional piece to its offensive line room on Friday. Iowa Western offensive tackle Josh Knipfel announced his commitment to the Cyclones.

The 2018 prospect will reclassify to 2017 and be eligible to play this fall, a source confirmed to Cyclone Fanatic.

The 6-foot-6, 315-pound Hampton, Iowa native also held offers from Michigan State and West Virginia. He was a full qualifier out of high school at Hampton-Dumot which allows him to be eligible in 2017.

He’ll have four years to play three in Ames.

Stay tuned to Cyclone Fanatic for more.
