David Dawson won't be joining Iowa State this season. The former Michigan offensive lineman, once a prized recruit out of Detroit, left Ames shortly after arriving as a graduate transfer, coach Matt Campbell told the Des Moines Register. Dawson's departure is a blow to the Cyclones, who need help from unproven players and likely from newcomers on the offensive line.

Iowa State defensive back Mike Johnson, who was arrested in February for a domestic incident and later pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct, will not return to the Cyclones, coach Matt Campbell has announced. He was suspended after the incident. Johnson started eight games and made 44 tackles last season.
