Matte black helmets and blackout jerseys were the uniform of choice for Iowa State when facing off against University of Texas on Nov. 16. 

Iowa State football grabbed an important commitment at a position of need Tuesday morning, with the commitment of 2020 junior college defensive tackle Latrell Bankston. 

Bankston announced his decision on Twitter.

The 285-pound defensive tackle commits to the Cyclones as a potential immediate contributor in 2020. Ray Lima and Jamahl Johnson, the team's current tackles, are graduating after the season — leaving a lack of depth on the interior of the line.

Bankston is a three-star recruit and the No. 17 overall JUCO commit, according to 247Sports, and the No. 3 defensive tackle.

He chose Iowa State over offers from Arizona, Boise State, Oregon State and Central Michigan. Iowa State now has 22 commitments in the 2020 class.
