In 2016 , Texas safety Greg Eisworth committed to Hugh Freeze and Ole Miss over Baylor, Iowa, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, TCU and Texas A&M, after taking a number of visits to Oxford. Eisworth, a three-star at the time, spent just one semester at Ole Miss before transferring out of the program, and heading to junior college Trinity Valley in Athens, Texas. Just one game into his JUCO career, and Eisworth already knows where his next division one stop is, as he announced his intentions to enroll at Iowa State next year on twitter earlier today. Eisworth will count towards the 2018 class.

THE EISWORTH FILE
Eisworth is the 14th commitment in Iowa State’s 2018 recruiting class, and the second of the week, along with California product Josh Madison, who committed on Tuesday. Eisworth is the fifth defensive back in the class, along with cornerbacks Jaeveyon Morton and Anthony Johnson Jr, and fellow safeties Josh Madison and Christian Young. Eisworth is the third commitment in the class from the state of Texas, along with Young and wide receiver Carson Schleker.
Eisworth picked Iowa State over offers from Colorado, Colorado State, Houston and West Virginia, after visiting campus back in June. Iowa State has been pressing hard to land a commitment from Eisworth over the last few months, and thanks in large part to an excellent effort from defensive backs coach Jon Heacock, who has a long history of JUCO recruiting.
On the field, Eisworth is almost certainly going to be ready to contribute in his first year on campus at Iowa State. He’s not an athletic freak by any means, but he has the build of a college football player, as is to be expected from a guy who’s spent time in a college weight program. There aren’t many highlights of Eisworth yet, but as the season continues at Trinity, expect more info to come out about one of the best JUCO safeties in the country.
