Cyclones in top two for DE Hyder

Iowa State is right in the thick of things to land a strong side defensive end out of the state of Texas named Kerry Hyder. Hyder, who stands 6-foot-3, 246 pounds has been vocal that Iowa State and Texas Tech are currently his two favorite schools at this point in time.

Iowa State is in the mix due to a couple of connections.

"I worked with Coach Chizik at a football camp a few years ago and I have a friend that goes to Iowa State right now."

The friend Hyder referenced is Darius Darks, a freshman wide receiver for the Cyclones.

"I played against him in AAU basketball and I've always known him," Hyder said. "He lets me know that it's a good school and that I could play there early."
