RECRUITING: Cyclones earn commitment from former NDSU WR Eli Green

Iowa State earned its latest transfer portal commitment in Eli Green on Friday evening, following his two-day visit to Ames.

The former North Dakota State wide receiver announced the news over social media.

Green appeared in each of NDSU’s 15 games last season and was a starter in six of them.

The to-be redshirt junior collected 877 receiving yards and three touchdowns, and also rushed for 118 yards and returned 11 kicks for 202 yards last season.

Green will join both wide receivers coach Noah Pauley and running backs coach Tyler Roehl – who were in Fargo before taking jobs at Iowa State.

“They have been fantastic,” Green said of Iowa State’s staff. “And having previous knowledge just with coach Pauley and coach Roehl being at NDSU during my time there – I know they’re quality people. Getting to have talks with Coach Campbell and see their outlook on on how I would fit in with their program and the things that they have to offer has been fantastic.”

Green’s commitment brings Iowa State to 84 scholarship players, with one scholarship spot remaining for the 2024 season.
