NCAA Football: Kansas at Iowa State

The Iowa State Cyclones have added Eastern Kentucky wide receiver Jayden Higgins in the transfer portal.

Higgins made the announcement on Twitter on Saturday afternoon.


Higgins has great size at 6’4”, 215 pounds, and is coming off a season with EKU where he racked up 757 receiving yards, with 58 catches for 10 touchdowns.

Over his two seasons at EKU, he has 87 catches, 1,151 yards, with 13 touchdowns. He’s averaged 13.1 yards per catch during his two seasons. He was a two-star prospect coming out of high school, according to 247Sports.

Higgins will look to help lift and offense that is undergoing a facelift after the program fired offensive coordinator Tom Manning following a season in which the Cyclones were last in the Big 12 in points and yards per game.

Iowa State went 4-8 this season, including 1-8 in conference play.
