    Sign him up. Him and/or someone else might need to switch positions tough... I think Tiller should be tried somewhere else.

    By all accounts, he's a great kid with as much intelligence (would be pre-Med) as football talent. He has the potential to be a great leader, on and off the field.

    He has quite a local following that (of course) wants him to stay at home (USF), but if he really wants to challenge himself at a great university in an elite football conference, he will play for Paul Rhoads and graduate from Iowa State.

    He looks fast and athletic! This is the first I've seen of his senior season highlights. Definitely the type of playmaker we need for our program, and he is someone who could contribute early in his career, whether it be at QB if he continues to develop in the passing game, or at WR/DB.

    And as it has been mentioned, he seems to be just as spectacular off the field! Exactly the type of young man that fits in with Coach Rhoads, Iowa State, and the Ames community. He would be another great building block to help CPR reach new heights. Plus it appears he is very well known in his area and has a lot of connections to other possible recruits, always a plus. It seems like the staff is making more progress of getting into those FL recruiting hotbeds.

    Interesting commit. It seems like the QB position is getting crowded pretty quickly. I would guess he or Richardson will redshirt (maybe both) next year.

    The quality of recruits we're getting from FL now is an encouraging sign for the program. Now, if CPR and company could just do something about all the in state talent throwing away their futures by going to Iowa City then we'll really be in business...

    Sign him up! Give him some time at QB and see what he can do. If he doesn't make it, then maybe he'll be the next LJ at CB or as a slot receiver.

    You can never sign too many athletic HS QBs. Those guys can switch roles into a lot of different positions, usually WR or DB.

    If you know anything about Iowa's recruiting (and I know more than I'd ever want to thanks to a coworker), they take a ton of these raw athletes and move them into other positions and coach them up. I get the impression CPR is looking to do the same.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Re: Thoughts on potential qb Josh Grady??

    Lived in the Tampa Bay area for 8 years & know there is a ton of talent in many sports & the St. Pete Times does a good job (sometimes over the top) covering high school sports, athletes & the recruiting process. I attached a couple links, one is a brief piece about Grady after his visit to Ames (think he is legitimately considering all three schools since he didn't commit to USF after his visit; he's a very smart kid, good to see he's weighing every option) & the other is about Ruben Gonzalez, a good receiver/dback prospect.

    HomeTeam | Iowa State impresses Armwood's Grady

    HomeTeam | Robinson's Gonzalez down to three

    Jarvis West & Jeremiah George are both from the area & former Cyclone DBack Atif Austin is head coach.

    Like I said, not currently living there but having taught and coached in Tampa, still have an interest in the happenings in there.

    So when did Gonzalez visit or when is he visiting? Rivals and that article have two different dates.

    Iowa State is visiting Grady today

    Twitter

    Apparently he claims 26 offers. Minnesota and Vanderbilt recently offered.

    With good reason, if we sign him and his friends like ruben, we will be sitting on a good class.
