Wiregrass Ranch quarterback Rocco Becht has committed to Iowa State.
The rising senior made the announcement on his Twitter page Friday afternoon.
Becht, the son of former Jets and Buccaneers tight end Anthony Becht, is listed as a three-star prospect by 247 Sports and had offers from 13 colleges. He is just the second recruit for the Cyclones in the 2022 class and the lone one from the area.
Iowa State has done well landing locals. In fact, this marks the fifth straight recruiting class the Cyclones have secured at least commitment from an area player.
Becht took over as Wiregrass Ranch’s starting quarterback in 2019. As a junior last season, he threw for 1,550 yards and 18 touchdowns and was named the offensive player of the year for the East Division of the Sunshine Athletic Conference.
