RECRUITING: 2025 Utah tight end target Jordan Vyborny recaps visit, talks NFL aspirations

Spring practice season is in full swing at Iowa State and that brings an amount of recruiting prospects on to campus to have an opportunity to watch the team practice, see the facilities and everything else that goes into the program.

Jordan Vyborny, a 6-foot-5, 230-pound tight end out of Draper, Utah was in town last weekend and has already scheduled his June visit for this summer.

“I really I love the program,” Vyborny said. “I really like what’s going on there, and that’s a great place for producing tight end talent, especially at the next level. I love all the coaches. I love every thing that’s involved with that program, so I’m really excited.”

The 2025 tight end has picked up offers from Oklahoma State and Michigan State since Iowa State offered him on March 23.

He holds other offers from Washington State and Eastern Washington.

“I really just prioritize development and culture,” Vyborny said of what he’s looking for in a future home. “I think culture is very important. Just being surrounded by good people in the community and the program itself, being able to be developed to that next level, like the NFL. Pro football is really important as well, as well as (the program) building me as a man that I can be academically, physically and just everything.”

Vyborny recalls a game where he watched former Iowa State tight end Chase Allen in NFL action, as well as other former players that performed at his position in Ames.

“I’ve watched a couple of games. I think it was Chase (Allen) just balling out,” Vyborny said. “He’s really fun to watch and I’ve seen him in the NFL and it’s just really entertaining. I really love what they did with the tight ends the years prior and what they’re doing now.”

Vyborny is rated as the No. 26 prospect in Utah, where Iowa State has started to recruit harder because of its proximity to incoming Big 12 programs Utah, Arizona State, Arizona and Colorado.

New offensive coordinator Taylor Mouser has already started to build a strong relationship with the Corner Canyon High School prospect.

“I think he’s a great guy,” Vyborny said. “The way he was practicing and the way he was just paying attention to detail with the tight ends – it was just different. He really is a great coach and his personality is just wonderful. I’m building a great relationship with him – I already have one really, but yeah, he’s great.

“He’s going to definitely elevate that position for Iowa State, for sure,” Vyborny said. “I’m really excited to see what he does. I know involve the tight ends maybe even more than what they already have. So it’s just gonna be awesome – I’m really excited to watch that and see what they do.

Vyborny has set up an April visit to Oklahoma State, as well as other unofficial visits Arizona State, Cal and Washington.

He will be in Ames for one of Iowa State’s typically popular summer visit weekends from June 7-9 at Iowa State.
