After being named his leader on March 30th, the Iowa State Cyclones landed a very quality running back on Wednesday in the form of 2014 athlete Tommy Mister. Last season, Mister played quarterback and running back at Richards High School in Chicago’s south suburbs, however, Mister will be playing the RB position for the Cyclones.
ISU received Mister’s commitment over other offers from the Illinois Fighting Illini, Indiana Hoosiers, Kansas Jayhawks, Michigan State Spartans, and Notre Dame Fighting Irish.
It seemed as a no-brainer that Tommy Mister would end up picking Iowa State. The 247 Sports Crystal Ball had the Cyclones as the 100% predicted spot to land the 2014 recruit.
Even though he picked ISU, Mister was quite excited about the Michigan State Spartans until speaking to Iowa State commit Allen Lazard.
According to 247 Sports, Mister had this to say about why he gives Lazard credit for his commitment:
“I asked what number he was going to wear. He said the number five. I said that’s the number I was looking at. He said you can have it. If it comes down to having you come here and me not wear number five it’s worth it. We talked about the school and the program and coaches and I said, you just made did a 180 for me on my decision.”
Tommy Mister is the 10th commitment for the Iowa State Cyclones from the Class of 2014. As a running back in 2012, Mister ran for 1,076 yards on 137 carries and 15 touchdowns.
The three-star recruit is currently ranked 20th in the state of Illinois and 55th among athletes by 247Sports.
