Iowa State will finish up its 2020 recruiting class later this week but Matt Campbell’s staff got 2021 off to a great start on Saturday.
The offense added a future wide receiver to the 2021 class on Saturday night in the form of Tristan Michaud, a 6-foot-5 wide receiver out of Canada. Michaud is considered a 3-star prospect via 247 Sports.
The future Cyclone tweeted this on Saturday night.
I am Extremely Excited to annouce that I am Committed to Iowa State University! Thank you to everybody who helped me through this experience! #ProveIt 🌪💯🤞🏾@CycloneFB @FootballNorthca @ISUMattCampbell pic.twitter.com/vzo4G6yCzE— Tristan Michaud🇨🇦🇧🇧 (@TristanMichaud3) February 2, 2020
Recruiting by Nate Scheelhaase, Michaud only had one other offer, that being from Eastern Michigan, which notably is only miles from the Canadian border.
This is an under-the-rader, early snag for Iowa State, who offered Michaud last September. The Cyclones were the first division one program to do so.
Michaud’s long and big body type gives him a chance to be a contributor early in his career in Ames. He will also likely get more and more attention throughout the recruiting process, being that he has been so hidden thus far.
