Iowa State signed three-star JUCO DE Matthew Leo.

The Cyclones were successfully able to flip this Australian product from Arizona. "Leo passes the eyeball test and has a lot of physical tools to develop," ESPN opined in a scouting report. "He is still a bit raw but has a very high upside." The 6-foot-7, 260-pounder is blessed with an ideal frame. Leo is the No. 43 overall JUCO recruit according to ESPN, and the No. 51 JUCO import according to the 247Sports composite.

Iowa State signed four-star JUCO redshirt junior WR Matthew Eaton.

The 6-foot-4 Eaton, the No. 33 overall player on the ESPN JC 50, originally signed with Temple in 2014. As a true frosh, he received a medical hardship after appearing in four games before spraining his ACL. Eaton then played in three games for the Owls in 2015 before transferring to the JUCO level. Eaton would no doubt like to play alongside Allen Lazard this fall. "I’m not really focused on coming in to replace anybody. They have told me from Day 1 to come in and work," Eaton said. "Nothing is going to be actually given to me or anything like that, so I’m just ready and hungry to come in and do whatever I can for the team." He has two seasons of eligibility left. "Eaton has the tools necessary to contribute right away and potentially impact a team early on. He's a bit of a bull in a china shop and must play with more route discipline, but he is talented," ESPN noted in a scouting report.

Iowa State signed three-star 2017 WR Tarique Milton.

Milton had also received offers from programs such as Bowling Green, Louisville and Michigan State. At 5-foot-11, 156 pounds, adding weight will be critical for the three-star prospect. Unless he makes his mark in August camp, he could well be in for a redshirt for the coming season.

Iowa State received a verbal commitment from three-star 2017 CB O.J. Tucker.

Tucker had been toying around with possibly joining Georgia Tech -- he was committed to them earlier in the cycle -- but will instead try to carve out his collegiate legend in Ames, Iowa. Scout.com is keen on the 6-foot, 190-pounder's frame as it currently stands and notes that Tucker "possesses that quick-twitch that allows him to immediately flip his hips and run with receivers downfield." The outlet ranks him as this class' No. 11 cornerback prospect in the state of Florida.

Former Michigan graduate OL David Dawson transferred to Iowa State.

Dawson is on the move to find playing time in his last season of eligibility. He appeared in only 12 career games at Michigan. Iowa State lost four starters along what was a poor 2016 offensive line, so Dawson will have every opportunity to earn a starting gig this summer. The 6-foot-4, 325-pounder is a former touted four-star recruit.

Iowa State HC Matt Campbell said that redshirt sophomore RB Mike Warren will not require offseason ankle surgery.

Warren initially injured his ankle against Kansas State on October 29. He subsequently missed a November 3 showdown with Oklahoma before suiting up and playing in Iowa State's final three games. While he did play against Kansas, Texas Tech and West Virginia to close out the campaign, the 6-foot, 200-pound redshirt sophomore saw only a combined 10 carries in that space. He wrapped the 2016 season having rushed for 559 yards (4.2 YPC) and three touchdowns, a disappointing output after he turned in 1,339 yards (5.9 YPC) and five touchdowns in 2015.

Iowa State junior WR Allen Lazard announced he will return to school for the 2017 season.

Lazard stands tall at 6-foot-5 and 223-pounds and posted his best collegiate season in 2016 with 69 catches for 1,018 yards and seven touchdowns this season. Lazard points to his love of Iowa State and wanting to be a Cyclone while growing up. He will remain Iowa State's top pass catcher next season, when he enters the season at 21-years-old.

Iowa State true freshman RB David Montgomery ran for 141 yards on 21 carries in Saturday's loss to West Virginia.

He chipped in four catches for 45 yards. It's too bad the season is over, because Montgomery was really coming on, rushing for 140 yards or more in two of his last three games after not getting 10 carries in any game until November. A three-star recruit in this past cycle by Scout and ESPN, Montgomery was listed by Scout as the 67th-best running back nationally. Former starter Mike Warren found himself deep in HC Matt Campbell’s doghouse this year, opening the door for Montgomery. We'll see if he retains the job next summer. Montgomery finished the year with 563 rushing yards and two touchdowns as well as 13 catches for 129 yards.

Iowa State junior WR Allen Lazard caught four passes for 103 yards in Saturday's 49-19 loss to West Virginia.

The 6-foot-5, 223-pound Lazard closes out the year with a 69-1,018-7 line. The 3-9 Cyclones' season is over, meaning that the biggest storyline surrounding the program in the immediate future is Lazard's NFL decision. If he returns to Ames, the Cyclones will be dreaming of a return to the postseason in coach Matt Campbell's second season.

Iowa State junior WR Allen Lazard caught seven passes for 137 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 66-10 smashing of Texas Tech.

Lazard scored a 34-yard touchdown right after the commercial break flip from the first to second quarters. That one gave Iowa State a 21-3 lead. They ultimately didn't need more than that against a Red Raiders team that looked like it has thrown in the towel, but tacked on another 44 points just because that is what you do when you play Texas Tech. The 6-foot-5, 223-pound Lazard has been brilliant of late, going off for at least 120 yards receiving in three of his last four games. In that quartet of contests, he has caught 31 passes for 467 yards and three touchdowns.

Iowa State redshirt junior QB Joel Lanning rushed for 171 yards and five touchdowns while throwing for 51 yards in Saturday's 66-10 stomping of Texas Tech.

Lanning only attempted four passes (he completed three of them), as Jacob Park served as the passing arm of the offense in this one. This timeshare worked out beautifully for both parties. Park would throw for 285 yards and two touchdowns, while Lanning would rush for season highs in both yardage and touchdowns. The Cyclones will close out their 2016 campaign against West Virginia next Saturday.

Iowa State junior WR Allen Lazard hauled in a career-high 10 receptions for 120 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 31-24 win against Kansas.

In so doing, Iowa State (2-8, 1-6 Big 12) earned its first conference win of the season. While Lazard ripped the Jayhawks through the air, RB David Montgomery accumulated a career-high 169 yards on the ground. Iowa State gets Texas Tech next.

Iowa State HC Matt Campbell said that while redshirt sophomore RB Mike Warren (ankle) is not 100% healthy, he is getting closer.

Warren was unable to give it a go against Oklahoma last Thursday, as his ankle was still a little balky from when he tweaked it versus Kansas State on October 29. The 6-foot, 200-pounder has already been cleared for Saturday's game against Kansas, though, a positive sign that he could be back to full strength in short order. 2016 has mostly been a struggle for Warren, but he will try to finish up strong against Kansas, Texas Tech and West Virginia before the close of the season.

Iowa State redshirt sophomore RB Mike Warren (ankle) has been cleared to play in this weekend's game against Kansas.

Warren sat out Thursday's loss to Oklahoma due to an ankle injury initially suffered in a loss to Kansas State two weekends ago. Barring a setback during the practice week, though, the 6-foot, 200-pound redshirt sophomore back should be available for Saturday's date with the Jayhawks. In eight games this season, he has rushed for 530 yards (4.3 YPC) and three touchdowns. A noticeable step down from his brilliant 2015 campaign. A year ago, Warren sliced his way to 1,339 yards (5.9 YPC) and five touchdowns over the course of 12 games played.

Iowa State junior WR Allen Lazard caught six passes for 76 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's 34-24 loss to Oklahoma.

Lazard hauled in a 31-yard touchdown from Jacob Park with 11:15 remaining in the first half. On the grab, a blown coverage by Oklahoma allowed him to pop wide open down the right sideline (there wasn't a defender within 10 feet of the wideout). While the 6-foot-5, 223-pounder has recorded just six games of more than 100 yards receiving in nine tries this season, he has been a reliable PPR option, particularly of late. In his last four games, Lazard has caught 27 passes, accounting for almost half of his 48 catches for the campaign as a whole.
