ISU QB Steele Jantz Set to Make Debut
AMES, Iowa (AP) Jerome Tiller began camp as Iowa State's No. 1 quarterback and ended it as an academic casualty.
As it turned out, Tiller's grades had little to do with his grip on the starting job: Junior college transfer Steele Jantz had already shown the coaching staff he was their best hope at quarterback.
Jantz threw for 3,075 yards and 23 touchdowns at City College of San Francisco a year ago. He will be under center when the Cyclones opens the season Saturday night against Northern Iowa.
