    One other JUCO nobody's talking about...

    The 1st Team All American and former Iowa State Cyclone commit Princeton Jackson.

    I know there are a lot of positions where we need help more then LB, but, its time to recruit similar to NFL drafting - BEST AVAILABLE PLAYER....

    Look at our current linebacking corp and depending on George's development, PJ could fit right into a super athletic linebacking corp. That LB corp would oversee a lot mistakes that a DL can make.

    Plus, could you imagine the blitz packages with these three athletic playmakers....

    This defense needs playmakers.....that can contribute early while awaiting some of the already talented younger players to develop....that means sparingly sign a few jucos to plug holes....or add playmakers....can anyone remember the playmaker signed in Rhoads first class....David Sims, that turned out ok....

    I don't know what it is, but there's something going on there. He is way better than his offers suggest.


    It's all snark from here on out

    Re: One other JUCO nobody's talking about...

    He didn't make it here due to academics and judging by his offer list, he is having the same problem in junior college. I would love to see him in a Cyclone uniform. Could redshirt or step in and have a significant impact at the linebacker position. Depending on how the coaches wanted to use him.

    It would be great to have more athletes on defense.

    R u sure about that? The reason he went to Blinn was because he could play both Baseball where he was highly rated and Football where he was rated middle of the pack.

    I'm not sure grades were an issue....but your probably not on the all american list if you have grade issues in CC because you would already be off the team....

    Just sayin...

    Re: One other JUCO nobody's talking about...

    Didn't he have the baggage of possible pursuing a career in pro baseball...and therefore teams stayed away because he might not have stuck around for all 4 years.

    Still never got why ISU bothered in the 1st place with no baseball team.

    I checked the Blinn baseball stats for last season. He played in 3 games, batted .000.

    Apparently the staff "bothered" because baseball wasn't such an option.

    Think grades are the issue here.

    ALCONE....not sure about his baseball capabilities....but regardless he did in fact go the juco route to pursue a chance to play Division 1 baseball.....as i stated....JUST SAYIN...

    Plus this lil blurb makes it sound like he's a got potential....so the choice to focus on football is probably a lil more obvious now....read third paragraph from bottom....

    The one thing the Buccaneers are waiting for is the emergence of a left-handed power bat. Catcher/first baseman Justin Beck and outfielder Princeton Jackson, who played for the Buccaneer football team in the fall, could both fit the bill in the designated hitter’s role, Harvey McIntyre said.

    “He is a left-handed hitter with some serious power,” Harvey McIntyre said of Jackson. “It’s impressive to see. He needs to learn how to hit a little bit, but he brings a whole different deal to the lineup if he can do it.”

    Either way, would love to get as many athletes on the field at once as possible, thats all i was sayin...
