Iowa State to add Arkansas’ leading WR as grad transfer

Leave a comment

Mere months after making the decision to transfer to a new program, wide receiver La'Michael Pettway has found his new home at Iowa State. Pettway posted on his Twitter account on Monday he had committed to the Cyclones.

The addition of Pettway certainly helps give the Iowa State receiver depth a boost after losing 1,000-yard receiver Hakeem Butler to the NFL (Arizona Cardinals). Last season, Pettway led Arkansas with 499 receiving yards and 30 receptions. He should be able to slide right into a comfortable spot and become a top target for the Iowa State offense.

As a graduate transfer, Pettway will be eligible right away this fall for the Cyclones, who will continue to be a headache in conference play for Big 12 opponents. Pettway has one year of eligibility remaining.
