Iowa State added quite possibly the most intriguing piece to its 2020 class Friday with a commitment from Saint Petersburg (Fla.) athlete T.J. Tampa. The 6-foot-2, 170-pound Tampa, who committed to Iowa State over six other finalists including Maryland, Wake Forest, Rutgers, UCF, USF and Toledo, is a multi-sport athlete who holds a basketball offer from James Madison and could play on either side of the ball for the Cyclones. Tampa visited Iowa State on June 18 where he camped with the program, working both at receiver and defensive back. His future with Iowa State could take him to either side.
