Iowa State extended the first known quarterback offer in the 2015 class to Joey Burrow of The Plains (Ohio) Athens High, Scout.com's Dave Berk reported Tuesday.
Burrow is the son of Jimmy Burrow, who coached the secondary at Iowa State for eight seasons (1987-1994) and was head coach at Ames High School from 1999-200. Jimmy is currently the assistant head coach and defensive coordinator at Ohio, which has offered the 6-foot-4, 190-pound Joey.
Central Michigan, Cincinnati, Fresno State, Maryland, Toledo, West Virginia and Western Michigan also have offers out to the three-star Burrow, who Berk — a Regional Analyst — believes to be the best quarterback in the state for his class.
Burrow will visit Cincinnati this upcoming weekend, having visited West Virginia a few days ago.
"I liked it a lot and they treated me very well there," Burrow told Scout.com. "One thing I know about [the Mountaineers] is they have a really good recruiting class so far."
Other 2015 quarterbacks the Cyclones are evaluating seriously include Ryan Boyle, Ryan Willis and Ryan Schlichte, the first two have been invited to the March 8 Junior Day while Schlichte hopes to make it to the March 29 date.
