Iowa State football has added a three-star recruit to their class of 2021 roster with Jayden Gray.

Gray announced his commitment to the program on Twitter on Tuesday morning.  

“Today marks the beginning of a new journey in my career!” Gray said. “With much prayer and support from my family, I am ready to take on this new path! With all of this being said, I am excited to announce my commitment to Iowa State University! GO CYCLONES!!” 

Gray is a 6-foot-3, 235-pound defensive end and chose Iowa State over offers from Northwestern and Virginia Tech, among others. 

According to 247sports, in 2019, Gray had 54 tackles, eight sacks and one forced fumble.

He had previously committed to North Texas but decommitted in June.
