    Yaman3's recruiting rundown: 12-16-10

    As I mentioned in a previous thread, Yaman3 is going to start writing some football recruiting blogs for us here on CF. I cannot stress enough that NONE of this information is premium. Enjoy.

    Yaman...Do you view us out of the picture with Henderson?

    No mention of a DE when it is the #1 need for our team. Interesting. Pressure the QB and the rest of the defense instantly becomes more "talented" if you know what I mean.

    Although I wouldn't be shocked to see Armonze Daniels turn into a DE

    Good stuff.

    FYI you have Walton T twice an no Bojay F, I think you just wrote the same Samoan-like name twice.

    I think that Iowa State is very much in the picture with Henderson. What makes you think that they'd be out of the running?

    No, not at all. I think so of the reason I didn't talk much about him is because Chris had just covered him. I think we are very much in the picture and I do think he would be a great get.

    You probably have me there. I think we have hashed and rehashed the Dend situation. Maybe I have too much faith in Rony Nelson but I still think he was better last year as a recruit than anyone on the board this year in terms of pass rushing. I do think that another DT is more of a concern than DE right now. I would just like to see another guy in the middle who can call for a double team. If you can do that you give your LBers better shots at tackles and you give you DEs better rush opportunities.

    I do agree with you it's a need but I don't know that it's #1. Besides that, there are some awfully talented guys still in the mix and I would take them and their 4 years over him and his 2. That's just my view on it I guess. Maybe I will be completely wrong and in 10 months I will be sitting here ******** about the lack of DE's.

    I meant what I wrote there. I think Walton is a big need and I think we get him, gut feeling. I don't know on Bojay. I have to think that if we get Henderson and WT, that will end JUCO Dlineman recruiting.

    He thinks that because the idiot who wrote the article didn't even mention him like he certainly should have.

    That's my bad guys. Henderson should have been in there, probably under the 5 we get.

    Gotcha, skimmed it the first time and saw him twice. I'm really wondering what the deal is with Walton T, if we are still after him. I think we will get one JC DE, most likely Hendersen or Filmoeatu.

    Re: Yaman3's recruiting rundown: 12-16-10

    Great write up. I enjoyed reading your throughts.

    This is my top 5 as to our needs and what I think we'll get:

    1. JUCO DT-Walt T has been on our list for a long time and the potential for immediate playing time should bring him in. I'm surprised he hasn't committed already.

    2. HS DT-Keithen English would fill this void nicely.

    3. Safety- JJ Gaines

    4. JUCO DE- Henderson or Filimoeatu- I don't think we will take both. I hope that it is one or the other

    5. Any talented Offensive player- This could include Nealy, Josh Grady, or if we strike out with both of them, one of the WRs like Babineaux

    Thanks, yaman3. I have to admit that I'm also glad that you didn't review the current commits. No need to draw attention.

    He just didn't have him in the 5 that he thinks that we will get. That's all. It was a mistake, just checking and getting the opinion of your writers.

    Great Breakdown.

    Re: Yaman3's recruiting rundown: 12-16-10

    I want to weigh in here on a few players:

    Taumoepeau - He was supposedly a December grad. He had an ISU offer and visited. Either ISU backed off on him or he picked up some bigger offers and told ISU he isn't interested. We've heard nothing from him since October. He also didn't have a great season statistic-wise and missed his team's last few games (injury?). I think that he ends up at a lower level school and I wonder whether ISU doesn't have a different JC DL under the radar that they like better.

    JC DE - It's obvious to me that the staff feels that they have a need for a JC DE. Filimoeatu, Nelson and Henderson have all visited ISU. They've also been mentioned with Lattimore and David Harris. ONE of these guys is coming to ISU.

    HS WR - Similarly, when 4 different HS WRs are talking about visiting ISU in January, you can bet that there's a need and that they'll sign one.

    HS LB - ISU is supposedly involved with Williams and Daniel. I personally don't see how there is a spot for a HS LB. Of course, Armonze Daniel is probably a DE, but will probably end up at IL anyway.

    HS DB - With Dorleant committing to Maryland, I don't think that there's much going on here. JJ Gaines' name hasn't come up in a long time.

    Here's who I wish they'd sign:
    Filimoeatu
    English
    Nealy
    Armonze Daniel
    Davonte Allen

    Here's who I think that they'll sign:
    Chaz Nelson
    English
    Bundrage
    Pleasant
    Unknown JUCO DT

    Good read.

    Small suggestion, if interested. I think it would be helpful to list the position and location (HS/JC) of the player for those of us that do not follow recruiting religiously.

    Got ya. I was just making sure that there wasn't something floating around out there that made you think ISU wasn't in the mix. My bad.
