It only took one visit to Iowa State for Thornton wide receiver Jauan Wesleyto know that the Cyclones were the team for him.

“The visit was amazing and the best part was talking to the athletic academic director,” Wesley said. “I liked how they have things organized to keep the players on the right path and support them.”

Wesley had previously announced a top two of Michigan State and Iowa State before taking his first visit to ISU Monday. Wesley trains with the Chicago based Core 6 Athletes training group, and President and CEO Paul Szczesny has followed him through the recruiting process closely.

“I was surprised but heard that Iowa State blew him away,” Szczesny said. “Iowa State is doing a great job in Chicago.”

Wesleyjoins St. Rita running back Tommy Mister in the Cyclones 2014 recruiting class.

“The academic support stood out the most to me out of any other school,” Wesley said. “And Iowa State is in a great conference with the Big 12, plus they have a great atmosphere.”
