Iowa State hasn’t gotten out to a very fast start in the 2018 recruiting cycle. Heading into last night, they only held two commitments; one from kicker Brayden Narveson, and one from defensive end Will McDonald. Matt Campbell added a third to that group, and a very important one at that, last night, when Sterling Galban pulled the trigger and announced his commitment to Iowa State.

THE GALBAN FILE
|Name||Hometown||Position||Position Rank||Star Rating|
|Sterling Galban||Burnet, TX||WR||187||⭐⭐⭐|
Galban’s commitment moves Iowa State to 66th in the 247sports class rankings, and ninth in the Big 12. That isn’t where Matt Campbell wants to be, and it’s safe to say that the commitments will start coming in much faster than they have to this point for Iowa State in the next few months.
Back to this commitment, Galban chose Iowa State, his only P5 offer, over interest from Florida, Oklahoma State, SMU, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Boise State, Utah, and a pack of Ivy League schools, as well as a large chunk of the AAC and Sun Belt. He’s a pretty popular guy.
On the field, Galban projects as a prototypical slot receiver. He’s quick, shifty, and runs great runs. If it wasn’t for his small, 5-foot-10, 175 pound frame, Galban would be ranked significantly better than the 1221 ranking he currently holds. He doesn’t have elite athleticism, but he’s very good at finding space in the defense, and could be a serious hassle in the Big 12 for everyone that isn’t Iowa State a few years from now.
