Austin Flynn, the No. 17 dual-threat quarterback in the country according to Rivals100.com, just keeps going back and forth. Sometimes he thinks he’s going to go ahead and commit to Iowa State and other times he thinks it’s best to wait a little bit before making a decision.
“A couple of weeks ago, I was thinking I should just commit and get it over with,” Flynn, the 6-foot-3, 190 pounder from Deer Park, Texas, said. “I was going to commit to Iowa State.”
“I went up there this summer and I really liked the town and I liked the coaches a lot. They were the first team to really jump on me and recruit me and that means a lot, too.”
But the interest in Flynn has picked up recently.
Tennessee has started to call once a week.
“Their coaches told me that I was one of four guys they were looking at right now and there might be a chance of something happening there, that they might offer.”
But Tennessee’s phone calls haven’t caused a change of heart for Flynn.
“Iowa State is still my number one team. They don’t have many young quarterbacks because they took some junior college prospects last year, so I just think it’s a great fit for me to develop.”
While Iowa State has offered a scholarship. Tennessee has not. TCU, Tulsa, Syracuse, Oklahoma State and West Virginia have also offered.
Flynn says he’s narrowed it down to ISU, Tennessee, Tulsa and TCU.
“I was going to go visit West Virginia, but it’s just too far away from home,” he said. “Same thing with Syracuse. Oklahoma State already has their quarterback, so they’re pretty much set.”
Flynn has set his official visit to the Iowa State campus for Dec. 7.
He passed for 1,050 yards and 12 touchdowns as a junior. This season, he has six touchdown passes.
