    The assistant coaches usually recruit certain areas of the country. Herman does a lot of the Texas recruiting. Of course, they all work toegether on evaluation and I'm sure the D-Line coaches signed off on him. Herman is just the main point of contact.

    I'll take a fast 6'4'' WR any day of the week!

    4.83 = Fast? Future TE?

    WR in HS but I think most teams are recruiting him as a TE

    Where are you seeing that? I see a 6'4 222lb receiver who runs a 4.83 40. Hopefully they'd move him to tight end. 4.83 is pretty slow for a wideout, even a big bodied one.

    I'm with you on DE. FWIW, Scout lists him as a OLB. Either way good to have big, versatile athletes on the team.

    Marquis Hamilton wasn't much faster than that after years in the ISU S&C program. I would certainly take another one of him on this team.

    Not saying that I wouldn't take the guy. Saying that 4.83 is awfully slow for a wide receiver. Marquis ran a 4.68 at his pro day.

    Over the last 5 years, no WR at the NFL combine has run near a 4.83 40. The closest I can find is Reggie Ball who ran a 4.76.

    If the 4.83 is accurate, it's very slow for a WR, and will likely have him switching positions.

    I think i'm comfortable with whomever the coaching staff wants to bring out.

    Jackson, on the other hand, has plenty of speed, if his time is accurate. So, are they trying to replace Money's big play ability in a smaller package?

    Yeah my guess on that guy is DE or TE. Potentially DT depending on how big he gets here.

    Then again... when has ISU ever had an NFL WR?

    I am impressed with Meyers speed for his size. Is that correct? If so, he could be good with a little more bulk to him.

    Well Danielson and Blythe off the top of my head both worked out of teams. Both were faster than this guy. But especially in today's NFL speed is becoming more and more important... Its becoming even more important in these spread offenses like ISU runs also.

    I'm pretty sure Danielson ran a 4.3 and benched over 400 lbs. Guy was a total freak!
