Key Iowa State players are facing charges and accusations as part of a gambling probe by the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation.

Running back Jirehl Brock, defensive lineman Isaiah Lee and a couple of their teammates have been charged with tampering, according to court records discovered by the Des Moines Register. Lee is now also being accused of betting against his own team.

Based on a report by Brett McMurphy of the Action Network, Lee bet against the Cyclones in their game against Texas in 2021. Prior to kickoff, Iowa State was a 6.5-point favorite. Lee recorded just one tackle in the game, but Iowa State easily covered and won 30-7.

As for Brock, he’s the most notable player involved on Iowa State’s roster. He was the Cyclones leading rusher in 20222. Knowing Brock being charged was a possibility, he’s been held out of practice during fall camp season for what’s labeled as an “undisclosed reason.”

ISU starters DeShawn Hanika and Jacob Remsburg were also charged with tampering.
