Iowa State football recruiting: Cyclones pick up JUCO cornerback from Texas


The latest update for the 2015 Iowa State football recruiting class is that they will be adding a talented junior college cornerback that also plays at safety and returns kicks on special teams.

Jomal Wiltz from Trinity Valley Community College committed to the Cyclones and announced his decision on Twitter on late Tuesday afternoon.

According to Cyclone Report (subscription required), a decision for Wiltz was expected today and the two final candidates were Iowa State and California. According to 247Sports, Middle Tennessee State, Tulsa, and UNLV also gave offers to the prospect. Wiltz made an official visit to the team back on November 21st.

Wiltz checks in at 5-foot-10 and 180 pounds with a 40-time of 4.40. The cornerback also plays at safety and also has experience on special teams returning the ball. According to former Iowa State recruiting insider Zack Spears, Wiltz had 52 tackles, 4.5 tackles for loss, 14 pass deflections, three picks, and a forced fumble when playing as a corner at Trinity Valley.

247Sports currently doesn’t have a ranking on the cornerback/safety/return specialist from Galena Park, Texas, and neither do other recruiting services like Rivals or ESPN.

However, Wiltz does have a few highlight reels over at Hudl. Here’s a highlight package against Iowa Western that saw him record a season-high seven tackles and one of those being a TFL.
