Three-Star Safety Quentin Taylor Commits to Iowa State

NCAA Football: Iowa at Iowa State

The Iowa State Cyclones just brought a big piece to Ames with the commitment of three-star safety Quentin Taylor.

High-level football runs in Taylor’s family as Quentin is the nephew former NFL safety, Brandon Meriweather. The Florida native received offers from Iowa State, West Virginia, Virginia, Duke, Washington State, Akron, Navy, Western Michigan, and multiple other programs before committing to the Cyclones.


Taylor is listed as a three-star prospect by the 247Sports index, the 93rd-ranked safety in the country, and the 128th-ranked player in the state of Florida. During high school, Taylor started primarily at the cornerback position for Lake Minneola and led his school to a 10-2 record, and made regional finals in Florida’s 4S playoffs.

Taylor took his first trip to Ames back in April and spoke to Cyclone Alert about his recruitment to Iowa State. 

“ISU is still the leader in my recruitment since they’re coming on to me the strongest, and I feel like they really want me,” Taylor said.

The Iowa State Cyclones’ defense was one of the best units in the Big 12 Conference last season, and after adding another premiere talent in the class of 2024, the Cyclones set themselves up with an opportunity to continue that trend going forward.
