Good-Jones feels good about Cyclones

Iowa State football coach Paul Rhoads offered Julian Good-Jones a scholarship on March 8, but the big offensive lineman from Cedar Rapids Washington did not want to rush into things before making a final decision.

Good-Jones also received offers from Kansas State and Oregon State, so he delayed making his choice until he could carefully analyze all three schools.

"I just wanted to see the other schools that were interested in me," he said Saturday afternoon. "I got a chance to visit all the schools that were going to offer before my senior season. That's when I wanted to get it done by."

Good-Jones, a 6-foot-6, 275-pound offensive tackle, ended the suspense Friday while touring the ISU facilities in Ames. He wanted a chance to tell Rhoads in person that he's accepted the offer and is excited about becoming a Cyclone.



Good-Jones commits to ISU football

Julian Good-Jones, a 6-foot-6, 270-pound offensive lineman from Cedar Rapids Washington, committed to the Iowa State Cyclones Friday, according to the Des Moines Register.

Good-Jones accepted a scholarship offer from ISU while touring the facilities in Ames.

Good-Jones was named second team all-Metro and second team all-Mississippi Valley Conference last season as a junior when Washington finished 6-4 and made the playoffs.

Bryce Meeker, an offensive lineman from Cedar Rapids Prairie, also has committed to Iowa State for the Class of 2015.
