RECRUITING: 2019 wide receiver decommits from Iowa State

Three-star 2019 wide receiver Maurice Massey has decomitted from Iowa State, according to his Twitter account. Massey, a Saint Charles, Mo. native, committed to Iowa State last month over offers from eight other college programs.

Considered the No. 62 wide receiver in the 2019 class and No. 411 prospect overall by 247Composite, Massey was the highest-rated wide receiver commitment of the Matt Campbell era at Iowa State until 2018 Ohio prospect Joseph Scates’ commitment on Sunday.

He was one of three 2019 wide receivers to commit to Iowa State in the month of December alongside three-stars Darien Porter, an in-state prospect from Bettendorf, and D’Shayne James, an Arizona native. Both of those prospects remain in the Cyclones’ class for the 2019 cycle, as does West Des Moines, Valley offensive lineman Jake Remsburg.

It is not clear at this point if Massey will continue to consider the Cyclones, but the news of a decommitment isn’t overly shocking nor worrying with roughly 11 months left until any of these prospects can officially sign with Iowa State.
