    Sam Richardson

    This Q is for anyone who follows recruiting closely. I see he is a 3 star CB who is a little undersized (5'8). Is he suppose to be someone like Reeves where he has a lot of talent and would probably play at a school like A&M (or any other school in the big 12 with a good tradition) if he were just a few inches taller? I'm always excited to see us get a 3 star or higher DB (even though I know recruiting rankings don't mean jack ***** a lot of the time)

    Re: Sam Richardson

    Talent, speed, and a 40-inch verticle (IIRC).

    Edit: Article & quotes

    It helps Richardson’s vertical is probably somewhere around 40 inches. He can dunk a basketball.

    Richardson also impacts the game other places. He’s blocked a jaw-dropping 17 kicks. His speed, footwork and size make him an elusive kick returner with five touchdowns.

    Yes, and if you can get a chance check out his highlight video. He has great leaping ability that trumps his height. Without seeing him, I would say similar to Reeves with a little more ups. Just the kind of guy ISU needs and will need to get.

    Nice. I think we'll be fine at the CB position if we keep recruiting like we have with guys like Benton and Reeves and now this guy

    I cannot bring myself to answer a QUESTION when the OP refers to it as a "Q"

    Re: Sam Richardson

    I think he is a legit 3 star guy. Probably a 4 if he is 5'10. Could be very similar to Reeves.

    Re: Sam Richardson

    I think hes a 2 star.. probably just because of size.. runs a 4.4 and is obviously talented and a good jumper. Don't get why he's not a 3 though

    Re: Sam Richardson

    I'm confused...

    Which Iowa State commit are we talking about? Are we talking about Sam Richardson - Yahoo! Sports or are we talking about Sam Richardson - Yahoo! Sports?

    I know it's tough to see but a Q is slightly different than a C
