Iowa State bolstered what was already a solid 2020 recruiting class with the addition of another top-60 recruit on Thursday.
Emily Ryan, a 5-foot-10 point guard from Central Plains, Kansas, committed to the Cyclones to give Iowa State four commits in the class of 2020. Ryan, the 2018 Gatorade Player of the Year in Kansas, is the No. 55 recruit in the country in the class of 2020, according to ESPNW.
The Cyclones were able to land Ryan despite some pretty stiff completion, which included Oregon and eight other teams in the Big 12 Conference. Ryan is a three-time state champion for Central Plains, and averaged over 30 points and six assists this past season.
Ryan is currently the second-highest rated recruit in Iowa State's 2020 class behind fellow point guard Lexi Donarski, who is the No. 19 rated recruit in the country by ESPNW. Also in Iowa State's 2020 class is Kylie Feuerbach of Illinois, and Aubrey Joens of Iowa City. The latter is the younger sister of sophomore guard Ashley Joens.
