Iowa State football: Texas quarterback commits to Cyclones


Dominic DeLira, a quarterback prospect from Texas, has committed to the Iowa State football team.

Multiple sources late Friday night reported DeLira’s commitment on Twitter.

The Texan didn’t take long to make his commitment. He was official on the same day he was offered by Iowa State. According to 247Sports, he was recruited by wide receivers coach Tommy Mangino.

Other schools of interest were New Mexico, North Texas, and Rice.

DeLira is a pro-style quarterback, the type of player that Iowa State seems to be looking at more offensively. Rohach has the legs to run but he doesn’t have the instinct to take off immediately. He’s widely favored to be the starter in the season opener against North Dakota State.

Perhaps we’ll see a more traditional passing attack with the Cyclones, which could work assuming the offensive line isn’t hard hit with the injury bug like it was last year. That would make DeLira a perfect candidate in the years to come.

Either direction the offense tends to go in the future, they could be set with a promising pair of QBs from Texas. Darius Lee-Campbell is a dual-threat option that signed with the Cyclones on February 25th. Lee-Campbell is apart of the 2014 class.

In his 2013 season at Lake Travis in Austin, DeLira completed 172-of-286 passes for 2,381 yards, 24 touchdowns, and 7 interceptions (via 247Sports).

This is the fourth hard commitment for Iowa State in the class of 2015. The others are offensive tackle Bryce Meeker, linebacker Bobby McMillen, and defensive end Anthony Nelson.
