RECRUITING: Kansas Edge Jordan Allen puts Iowa State in top 4

Iowa State fans got some good news to kick off their Independence Day celebrations Monday with the release of three-star prospect Jordan Allen’s top four.

The Cyclones appear among the 6-foot-4 EDGE recruit’s final choices, along with Iowa, Missouri and Kansas State.

Allen held offers from Washington, Vanderbilt and USC among other programs, but is opting to stay in the Midwest to play out his college career.

The 240-pounder also recorded a 35.3-inch vertical in February and has since burst onto the national recruiting scene.

There’s no date set for Allen’s commitment, but the Cyclones are well in the mix to land the Olathe, Kan. target.
