RECRUITING: Expected Feb. 24 Junior Day visitors list

Iowa State is set for a jam-packed weekend of visitors for its Junior Day on Saturday, including a pair of four-star players, according to 247Composite, and four of the program’s five 2019 commits.

Here are the prospects a source confirmed to Cyclone Fanatic that are expected be on campus this weekend in Ames.

Jirehl Brock, Running Back, Quincy, Ill.

Brock has long been one of the top running back prospects on Iowa State’s board dating back to when the program extended an offer last April. The four-star prospect rated as the No. 9 running back in the class and No. 150 prospect has taken at least one unofficial visit to Ames in the time since and was visited by members of the staff in January.

Other schools on the 6-foot, 180-pound prospect’s offer list include Iowa, Minnesota, Cincinnati, Missouri and Illinois.

Jason Bargy, Defensive End, Momence, Ill.

Bargy is the second of two 247Composite four-stars on Iowa State’s junior list for this weekend. The 6-foot-4, 225-pound prospect is rated as the No. 8 weak-side defensive end in the country and No. 154 prospect in the class.

Like Brock, Bargy landed an Iowa State offer last April and has visited Ames at least once in the months since. He also holds offers from Michigan State, Illinois, Minnesota, Iowa, Notre Dame and a few other Power 5 programs.

Coal Flansburg, Athlete, Solon

Iowa State is currently the only school on this 6-foot-1, 230-pound athlete’s offer list, but he was a standout performer this past season while helping Solon reach the UNI-Dome and the state semifinals.

Flansburg compiled 42 tackles, five tackles for loss and two sacks on defense plus 69 rushing yards and seven touchdowns on 10 carries offensively. He also scored a pair of receiving touchdowns on only three receptions for 31 yards.

Easton Dean, Quarterback, Altamont, Kan.

Dean has seen his recruitment heat up since committing to Iowa State earlier this month. The 6-foot-6, 220-pound prospect rated as the No. 13 dual-threat quarterback in the class landed an offer from Iowa last week and has started hearing more from Kansas State.

This will be his second trip to Ames this month as he was also in town for the program’s Junior Day on Feb. 10.

Jake Remsburg, Offensive Line, West Des Moines

Remsburg was the first 2019 prospect to commit to Iowa State back in December and this will be fifth time visiting Ames since landing an offer last September. The 6-foot-6, 293-pound Valley product is rated as the No. 7 prospect in the state of Iowa.

Darien Porter, Wide Receiver, Bettendorf

Another member of Iowa State’s 2019 commit list, Porter is rated as the No. 5 in-state prospect and the No. 100 wide receiver in the class. He was on campus earlier this month along with Dean and Remsburg.

Maurice Massey, Wide Receiver, Saint Charles, Mo.

Massey was the second of three wide receivers to commit to Iowa State in a two-day span in December. The 6-foot-4, 185-pound prospect rated as the No. 58 receiver in the class and No. 410 prospect overall also holds offers from Iowa, Kansas, Boston College, Illinois and a handful of other FBS programs.

Cole Mabry, Linebacker, Iowa City

Iowa State was the first – and is currently the only – school to offer Mabry back in September. He has been in Ames once since then and was visited by linebackers coach Tyson Veidt in January.

Mabry compiled 56.5 tackles, 3.5 tackles for loss and a sack during his junior season at Iowa City, West.

Joseph Thompson, Cornerback, Chicago, Ill.

Rated as the No. 82 cornerback in the class and No. 22 prospect in Illinois by 247, Thompson currently holds seven offers with Iowa State being the only one from a Power 5 school. The 5-foot-10, 160-pound prospect has reportedly drawn interest from Iowa, Duke, Cincinnati and Northwestern.

Breece Hall, Running Back, Wichita, Kan.

Running back will be one of the staff’s top priorities for the 2019 class and, along with Brock, Hall will be near the top of the list. The 6-foot-2, 200-pounder rated as the No. 42 running back in the class holds offers from Kansas State, Iowa, Nebraska, TCU, Minnesota and Louisville.

Iowa State was the first school to offer Hall last November while most of the others jumped into his recruitment in January.

Fabian McCray, Cornerback, Chicago, Ill.

Like Thompson, McCray is a product of Phillips Academy and holds quite a few FBS offers at this point in his recruitment. The 6-foot-2, 175-pound defensive back is rated as the No. 692 prospect in the class and holds offers from Cincinnati, Illinois, Purdue and quite a few other FBS schools.

Michael Jansey, Linebacker, Batavia, Ill.

Iowa State jumped into the 6-foot-2, 210-pound Jansey’s recruitment on Jan. 29 with an offer that extended a list which already included Ball State, Central Michigan, Penn, Illinois State and a few other programs.

JJ Guedet, Offensive Line, Washington, Ill.

Iowa State is one of four Power 5 programs to already offer a scholarship to the 6-foot-8, 245-pound prospect rated as the No. 73 offensive tackle in the class. Minnesota, Illinois, Iowa, Ball State, Central Michigan, Miami (OH) and Western Michigan have all extended offers to the No. 17 player in Illinois.

Noah Fenske, Offensive Line, New Hampton

Iowa extended an offer to Fenske during its junior day last week and now the New Hampton prospect will make his way to Ames hoping for the same thing. The 6-foot-5, 265-pound prospect rated as the No. 32 offensive guard in the class and No. 10 player in Iowa took a pair of unofficial visits to Ames last fall.
