AMES, Iowa (AP) Iowa State coach Matt Campbell has signed five junior college players to bolster the Cyclones in 2016.

Iowa State announced Wednesday that Campbell has brought in two defensive backs, a pair of linemen and a tight end. All five will enroll for the spring semester.

Perhaps the most intriguing new Iowa State player is defensive back D'Andre Payne, a former four-star recruit who played at Tennessee as a freshman in 2014 before redshirting last year at a junior college.

The linemen are Oge Odeogu and Karson Green, the tight end is Clifford Fernandez and the other defensive back is Thadd Daniels.
