Three-star Dedric Brinson makes the call

By RecruitingNation

Dedric Brinson (Lake Wales, Fla./Lake Wales), a three-star athlete, has committed to Iowa State following an official visit to campus, according to multiple reports.

"When I was there, they showed me a lot of love," Brinson told The (Lake Wales) Ledger. "At the end of the day it's my decision.

"I want to leave home and grow up and be a man. I can't be a momma's boy my whole life."

The Cyclones topped scholarship offers from Duke, Georgia Southern, Indiana, Marshall, Massachusetts, UCF, Wake Forest and Wisconsin. South Florida also showed interest.

Brinson is Iowa State's first pledge since July and 13th overall for the 2014 class.
