Spring (TX) dual-threat quarterback Darius Lee-Campbell, the No. 36 quarterback in the 2014 class, committed to Iowa State on Saturday after a long courtship. Lee-Campbell was slated to take a visit to Yale recently but that was cancelled at the last minute, as was a planned official to Wake Forest this weekend, off because of head coach Jim Grobe's resignation.
Lee-Campbell becomes commit No. 18 for the 2014 class.

AllCyclones.com:Even with Wake Forest and Yale falling through, did part of you want to wait it out? Maybe take some officials in January?
Lee-Campbell:"After I left Iowa State [on Nov. 9 official visited] I wanted to commit. But I knew it was a family decision, so I had to get my Dad on board. And when he talked to Coach K he was like, 'Yeah, I can see you going there.' So at that point there was no point in going on any other officials."
Q:What can you do in the pistol offense?
A:"Basically they need a QB back there who can run the ball 15-20 times a game and still be able to sling it around. We're gonna have some good receivers. It's an offense that should be scoring around 40 points a game. They lacked that this year, tremendously. So I'm excited to get there and see what I can do, be a threat at quarterback. It's not a complicated offense."
