Iowa State football grabbed an important commitment at a position of need Tuesday morning, with the commitment of 2020 junior college defensive tackle Latrell Bankston. 

Bankston announced his decision on Twitter.

The 285-pound defensive tackle commits to the Cyclones as a potential immediate contributor in 2020. Ray Lima and Jamahl Johnson, the team’s current tackles, are graduating after the season — leaving a lack of depth on the interior of the line.

Bankston is a three-star recruit and the No. 17 overall JUCO commit, according to 247Sports, and the No. 3 defensive tackle.

He chose Iowa State over offers from Arizona, Boise State, Oregon State and Central Michigan. Iowa State now has 22 commitments in the 2020 class.
