Iowa State football recruiting: Cyclones pick up Florida defensive tackle


Iowa State football picked up a commitment early Wednesday afternoon that should help out their defense.

Multiple sources on Twitter reported that a Florida defensive tackle Josh Coleman committed to the Cyclones.

Coleman checks in at 6-foot-2 and 270 pounds. According to 247Sports, he’s a 2-star prospect and ranks 156th nationally at defensive tackle and 342nd as an overall athlete in the state of Florida.

The defensive tackle had an official visit in Ames last weekend. After his visit, Alex Halsted from AllCyclones reported that Coleman ranked the Cyclones as one of his favorite schools.

Coleman passed up other offers from Fresno State and Idaho. It wasn’t reported if he had any visits with those or other schools. A different commit that reaffirmed his allegiance to Iowa State may have been a factor for Coleman to pick the Cyclones. After making an official visit to Louisville last weekend, 3-star offensive tackle Julian Good-Jones tweeted this morning that he was still committing to ISU. Coleman gave his congrats on Twitter shortly afterwards.

Good-Jones committed to Iowa State back on July 25th last year. He was one of the many prospects that came two weekends ago when College GameDay was in town for the Kansas-Iowa State basketball game.

According to MaxPreps, Coleman recorded 21 solo tackles and 9 assisted tackles, along with 2 tackles for loss, in eight games last season. Here’s an eight-minute video featuring his senior highlights from Hudl.
