RECRUITING: Visitors for the second Saturday Night Lights camp

Iowa State will be hosting a handful of prospects this weekend, including at least two commits, for its second Saturday Night Lights camp of the summer. Here’s the list of prospects Cyclone Fanatic has been able to confirm will be on campus this weekend.

Re-al Mitchell

The Iowa State quarterback commit will make his first trip back to Ames since announcing his pledge on May 1. Having him on campus this weekend will give the staff an opportunity to get a few of its top targets in front of one of the most active recruiters already in the class.

Sterling Galban

Galban, who appeared on this week’s On the Trail podcast, will also be making his first trip to Ames since announcing his commitment to the Cyclones. He’s picked up a slew of Power 5 offers since making his pledge, so every opportunity the staff has to get him on campus will be key.

This weekend will also give him and Mitchell an opportunity to bond as they’re both planning to be early-enrollees in the winter. Galban is also playing in a key role in helping the next guy on the list get to Ames.

Ta’Zhawn Henry

The No. 15 all-purpose running back in the country, per 247Composite, will make his first visit to Ames this weekend when he rides up from Texas with Galban. He’s one of the top running backs on the board for Iowa State and the position is one of the top priorities in the class which could lead the staff to end up taking two ball-carriers when things are all said and done.

Henry also holds offers from TCU, Baylor, Arizona and quite a few other Power 5 and FBS programs, but this weekend could go a long ways towards Iowa State being right in the mix when he announces his commitment on August 8.

Christian Young

Rated as the No. 49 safety in the country, Young has seen interest in his services at the next level grow exponentially since Iowa State offered on May 1. The 6-foot-1, 201-pound defensive back also holds offers from Oregon State, Missouri, Arizona State, Kansas, Arizona and Houston.

Greg Eisworth

The former Ole Miss defensive back, and now Trinity Valley C.C. prospect, confirmed to Cyclone Fanatic on Wednesday that he’ll make the trip for an official visit. He was the No. 36 safety prospect in the country out of high school in the 2016 class and held offers from the likes of Oklahoma, Texas, Baylor and Iowa.

He’s picked up offers from Colorado, Colorado State and Houston, as well as Iowa State, since transferring to Trinity Valley this spring.

This post may be updated throughout the day on Friday and through the morning and afternoon on Saturday leading up to camp.
