RECRUITING: Iowa State lands commitment from Florida WR Ezeriah Anderson

Iowa State has landed a commitment from Florida wide receiver Ezeriah Anderson, he tells Cyclone Fanatic. The three-star prospect took an official visit to Ames over the weekend.

Anderson is considered the No. 102 wide receiver in the class and No. 108 prospect in the state of Florida. He chooses the Cyclones over offers from Boston College, Missouri, Oregon, Syracuse, USF, Virginia and a host of other FBS programs.

He is now the second highest-rated wide receiver commitment in Iowa State’s 2019 recruiting class behind Darien Porter. He will likely be one of three wide receivers to sign with Iowa State on Wednesday with Texas wide receiver Nathaniel Beal III expected to flip his commitment to Virginia early in the week.

Prior to Beal’s announcement, Iowa State now has 20 commitments in its 2019 class that is currently ranked on the edge of the top-40 in the country.

Stay tuned to Cyclone Fanatic for more on this story.
