One of the top cornerbacks on the Cyclones' 2018 wish list will be on campus this weekend, as a three-star Illinois prospect makes his way to Ames with his mother.
Three-star Carol Stream (Ill.) Glenbard North junior Tyrik Henderson, who is the fourth-ranked player in his state for 2018 and the 27th-ranked cornerback nationally, believes he is one of the top recruits on the Cyclones’ list. Henderson has been given a 5.7 rating from Rivals.
The 5-foot-10, 160-pound Henderson said he’s hearing a lot from both McDonald and fellow assistant Alex Golesh.
Trying to stand out in a pack of Power-5 offer schools that includes Boston College, Indiana, Iowa, Missouri, Purdue and Syracuse, Iowa State is pulling out all the stops with Henderson. That includes the realm of “edits”.
