Touted wide receiver keeps commitment to Iowa St

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Highly touted receiver Allen Lazard has affirmed his commitment to Iowa State, joining a group that might be the best of coach Paul Rhoads' six recruiting classes.

Rhoads began his signing day press conference Wednesday by holding up Lazard's signed letter of intent, a not-so-subtle jab at those who questioned if Lazard -- a four-star prospect -- actually would sign with the Cyclones.

Iowa State signed 25 players, including seven junior college transfers who are counted on for immediate help. Six of the transfers play defense, a unit Rhoads needs to strengthen after the Cyclones surrendered 463 yards and 36 points a game in slumping to 3-9 last fall.

Chief among the transfers is linebacker Jordan Harris, who led the nation's junior college players with 124 tackles last season.
