Cyclones pick up commitment No. 2

Of all the Big 12 schools, Iowa State watched its recruiting for 2014 start out the gate the slowest. Saturday afternoon, the Cyclones picked up a sleeper who could be an asset to the growth of the class.

Cornerback De’Monte Ruth (Dallas/Wilmer-Hutchins) committed to Iowa State and joined four-star receiver Allen Lazard (Urbandale, Iowa/Urbandale) in the 2014 class. Ruth, a 5-foot-10, 170-pound defensive back, chose Iowa State over an offer from Sam Houston State.
