Know Your Foe: Iowa State Football Players to Watch

Key players from the Cyclones to watch when they take on the TCU Horned Frogs on Saturday.

The TCU Horned Frogs take on the Iowa State Cyclones on Saturday, November 26. Here are some key players on the Iowa State team that TCU fans should know before the game.

QB #12 Hunter Dekkers

Four-star Quarterback from Hawarden, Iowa. Sophomore

The 6-3 206 lb. quarterback has put up some decent stats despite his teams record. Dekkers has a strong frame, with a big arm and can sling the ball. He loves to find his favorite receiver, Xavier Hutchinson. They can be a difficult duo to cover and defend against. TCU does not need to over look Iowa State's and Hunter Dekkers' offense, because they can make some big plays and score. TCU needs to stay focused and apply pressure early to Dekkers, so that he doesn't get his offense established.

Despite not getting a whole lot of touches and production, the 6-0 220 lb. running back can wear out defenses. Brock is a very strong interior runner who can really push through lines quickly. He also provides another receiving option for Iowa States as he has good hands. TCU needs to be aware of his ability to catch and run the ball and keep an eye of what position he is in.

WR #8 Xavier Hutchinson

Three-star Wide Receiver from Jacksonville, Florida. Senior

This 6-3 205 lb. receiver is an absolute star and one of the best in the nation. He has had a great season and has been Dekkers' number one go-to receiver. Hutchinson is a great receiver that can make great and challenging 1-on-1 catches. He is a very physical player with long arms and can definitely bully around defensive backs. He has great field vision, and is great on deep routes. TCU should definitely be vigilant, and be aware of him at all times or he could make the Frogs pay.Want to join the discussion?
