Cyclones sign defensive tackle

Posted:
AMES (KWWL) -

Junior college defensive tackle Henry Simon has signed a letter of intent to play for Iowa State.

Simon, a 6-foot-3, 302-pounder from Grossmont College in California, will join the Cyclones for fall practice and has two years of eligibility left.

The Cyclones are hoping Simon can help them shore up a rush defense that gave up 186.3 yards a game last season. Simon will likely battle Jake McDonough and Cleyon Laing for playing time at tackle alongside senior nose guard Stephen Ruempolhamer.

Simon attended San Diego State in 2008-09 where he played for former Hawkeye great Chuck Long. Simon then sat out a year before playing last season at Grossmont, where he had 5- 1/2 sacks.
