St. Augustine (Fla.) three-star cornerback D.A. Williams made the call on Saturday evening to let one college staff know he wanted to be a part of their program.
"I committed to Iowa State last night," Williams said.
Williams chose the Cyclones over offers from Central Florida, Vanderbilt, and Wake Forest. He explained what factored into his decision.

"I chose Iowa State because it felt like a good college for me," Williams said. "I like their defensive backs. I like their coaches. I felt like it was a good fit and a good place for me to go.
"I like their facilities and the place as a whole," Williams added. "I also have family near Iowa State. I am close to family there. I just liked it there."
The 5-foot-10, 170-pound defensive back has built a strong bond with a key assistant on Paul Rhoads staff at Iowa State.
"Coach (Troy) Douglas," Williams said. "I had talked to him at first during the spring and at first I didn't vibe with him. But as we talked more and I learned more about him, all of a sudden we just started getting closer. As a person, I just like him a lot."
Williams has yet to see the Cyclones in-person, but hopes to change that during the early portion of their upcoming schedule.
"I am planning to visit the first or second week of the season," Williams said.
He says he is now done with the recruiting process.
