The Cyclones will soon have an addition to the quarterback room.

JJ Kohl, a four-star recruit in the class of 2023, announced via Twitter Monday that he would be taking his talents to Ames.

Kohl hails from Ankeny, Iowa, and is rated as the third-best player in Iowa according to 247 Sports, and ranks as the 17th best quarterback in the nation in the 2023 class.

Kohl also held offers from nearby schools such as Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Kansas as well as Florida State, Pittsburgh and Penn State. He’s currently the highest rated recruit for Iowa State in the 2023 class.

He is the 12th highest-rated player the Cyclones have ever had, one spot behind Breece Hall and six spots behind their assumed 2022 starter, Hunter Dekkers.
