AMES (AP) -

Iowa State quarterback Joel Lanning had his moments after earning the starting job midway through last season.

The Cyclones will need to see more than just glimpses of promise from Lanning this fall if they hope to end a three-year bowl drought.

Lanning, who'll be a junior in 2016, is the only quarterback for Iowa State that's taken a collegiate snap. So his progress this offseason is perhaps the biggest area to watch as coach Matt Campbell enters his first season as coach.

The Cyclones, who have only Lanning and redshirt freshman Dominic De Lira as quarterbacks on scholarship this spring, end camp with a scrimmage on April 16 at Jack Trice Stadium.
