Luna won’t turn 20 until April, but Rhoads compared him to starting end Cory Morrissey. Rhoads also has high expectations for Taiese, likening him to former Iowa State star and current Baltimore Ravens starter Kelechi Osemele.
“He was 357 pounds of best player available,” Rhoads said of Taiese. “He’s really light on his feet and really gets in the open field and runs extremely well for his size,” Rhoads said.
Rhoads didn’t have any updates on the openings at offensive coordinator or running backs coach, other than to say he hoped to have a new coordinator in place by the middle of next month.
The Cyclones will announce the rest of their 2014 recruiting class on Feb. 5.
