How glad are the Cyclones that Quenton Bundrage will be on the team for two more years? The Florida native finished with a team-high 676 receiving yards on 48 catches and nine touchdowns. He’s the most dangerous weapon in the air for ISU, and will only improve as the quarterback position gets better.
Don’t forget second-team All-Big 12 tight end E.J. Bibbs, who surged in the latter part of the season to finish second on the team with 462 yards and two touchdowns. He’ll be back for his senior season next year.
Receivers will be the most experienced position heading into next season. Players like Tad Ecby and Jarvis West don’t have big numbers, but they outplayed their senior players with the exception of Justin Coleman late in the season.
Similar to the running backs, the overall senior class disappointed this season. However, there is a lot of depth, and the future looks bright with Allen Lazard, one of the top receivers in the class of 2014 whose committed to Iowa State.
