A three-star recruit from Harvey, Illinois, joins the Iowa State football team’s class of 2014.

Juan Wesley is a wide receiver that made his decision to commit on Tuesday, one day after making an unofficial visit to the campus.

Clues on his decision could be found on his Twitter account, loaded with a few great pictures of himself by the Iowa State logo with the caption “Best Place I’ve Been” and with defensive graduate assistant coach Derek Day (as pictured above).

In addition to the Cyclones, Wesley had offers from Illinois, Michigan State, Ball State, Toledo, and Western Michigan.

The 5-foot-11, 160-pound receiver doesn’t have a national ranking on 247Sports but has a rating of 83, fifth-best of the recruits so far. In comparison to ranking as the 154th wide receiver in the 2014 class, Rivals has him listed all the way up at 73rd.

It’s already starting to look like a loaded class at receiver. The Cyclones scored big on Allen Lazard and Tommy Mister who are some of the bigger recruits that the football team has gotten under Paul Rhoads, and it’s drawing in three-star recruits and talented athletes like Wesley.
