The Iowa State Cyclones will be without some depth on the offensive line in 2022, as Joey Ramos announced on Twitter he would be entering the transfer portal.
Ramos announced on Twitter and said in part, “Thank you Iowa State for an amazing experience these past 4 years… Thank you Coach Campbell and your staff for helping me grow on and off the field… I will be leaving Iowa State with a bachelors degree in business and have made the decision to enter the transfer portal as a graduate, to seek new opportunities and growth in my last two years of eligibility.”
Here’s the full post.
Ramos saw his playing time diminish in 2021. He redshirted in 2018, then played in 12 games on special teams in 2019. His breakthrough year came in 2020 when he played in eight games and started five on the offensive line, where he was a member of a unit that was one of 11 semifinalists for the Joe Moore Award, given to the top O-line in the nation.
But this season, Ramos played in 13 games, but all primarily on special teams.
Coming out of high school, Ramos was a three-star prospect from Phoenix, Arizona, according to 247Sports, and was ranked as the No. 71 offensive tackle and No. 13 player in Arizona.
