|Linemen, Jucos Highlight Iowa State Class
|AMES, Iowa (AP) -- Iowa State has landed a highly regarded high school lineman and two players from the national junior college championship team as part of its 25-member 2013 recruiting class.
Jake Campos, a 6-foot-7, 260-pound offensive lineman, is considered the top prospect that coach Paul Rhoads has signed in his five recruiting classes at ISU.
Campos played at Waukee High School, which is about 45 miles from the Iowa State campus. He originally committed to Missouri, but changed his mind during a visit to ISU on Dec. 1.
Defensive end Rodney Coe and running back Aaron Wimberly signed with Iowa State out of Iowa Western Community College, which won the NJCAA championship. Wimberly, who rushed for 1,125 yards and 13 touchdowns last season, also had offers from Iowa, Penn State, Boise State and TCU.
