RECRUITING: Iowa State hosting three-star Texas WR for official visit Thursday night

While Thursday night primetime games are great opportunities for a college football program to gain exposure on a national stage, they are not always the best possible situations for the recruiting trail. For that reason, it will be a slower week for Iowa State hosting recruits with the Texas Longhorns set to roll into Jack Trice Stadium for a 7 p.m. kick on ESPN.

The Cyclones will host one official visitor Thursday night in three-star Texas wide receiver Tre Adams. The 6-foot-3, 178-pound pass catcher is rated as the No. 1,318 player in the 2018 class and No. 194 wide receiver by 247Composite.

Adams, a product of Wakeland High School in Frisco, Texas, also holds offers from Arizona, BYU, Illinois, Utah, Boise State and a few other FBS programs.

The No. 184 prospect in the Lone Star State caught seven passes for 90 yards and two touchdowns in Wakeland’s 49-23 win over Dallas Woodrow Wilson last Friday. Adams’ strong start to the 2017 season follows up a junior campaign in which he caught 66 passes for 925 yards and nine touchdowns.

Iowa State currently holds commitments from two wide receivers in Allen, Texas three-star Carson Schleker and Jones, Okla. three-star Sean Shaw.
