Iowa State coach Paul Rhoads... on a roll! Yesterday the Cyclones announced that Thornton wide receiver Jauan Wesley will be joining St. Rita quarterback (?) Tommy Mister in Ames next year.

Paul Szczesny, who operates Core 6 Athletes, said it best: "Iowa State is doing a great job in Chicago."

You can watch Wesley, along with quarterback Jowahn Brown, running back D'Anthony Cross and cornerback Tifonte Hunt host Morgan Park (6-5 last year) in the opener on August 30.

Here's the rest of the Wildcats' schedule, with last year's records in parentheses:

Sept. 6 @ Naperville North (5-5)
Sept. 13 Thornwood (3-6)
Sept. 20 Bradley-Bourbonnais (6-4)
Sept. 27 @ Lincoln-Way North (6-4)

Oct. 4 @ Andrew (6-4)
Oct. 11 Lincoln-Way Central (4-5)
Oct. 18 @ Lincoln-Way West (8-4)
Oct. 25 @ Thornridge (0-9)

That's a pretty good schedule. Thornton went 8-3 last year, including victories over Bradley-Bourbonnais, Lincoln-Way North and Lincoln-Way West before falling to Downers Grove North in the second round of the playoffs. The Wildcats are loaded with talent this year and may be one of the teams to watch in 2013.
