After being named to the Big Ten All-Freshmen Team during the 2019 season, redshirt freshman goalkeeper Jordan Silkowitz is making the jump from the Big 10 to the Big 12.

Iowa State announced the signing of Silkowitz on Friday via Twitter.

Head Coach Matt Fannon will get another young piece with plenty of potential to add to the mix with an already young team with potential.

In 2019, Silkowitz played in all 18 games for Ohio State and recorded a team-high 58 saves on the season.

Silkowitz joins Iowa State at an interesting point with the goalkeeper spot.

The usual starter, junior Dayja Schwichtenberg, started the season in net for the Cyclones before getting injured around eight minutes into the Oct. 3 match against Texas Tech.

While thought to be out for 10 days, freshmen Georgia Wimmer stepped in to finish the Texas Tech game and played out the remaining seven conference games following the Texas Tech game.

Regardless of what happens at the goalkeeper spot, Fannon gets another young piece to help rebuild a struggling Iowa State team.
