    Recruiting: Taumoepeau Lists K-State as High

    Looks like we will miss out on another JUCO DT. Taumoepeau lists K-State as High and has everyone else (including us) at No interest.

    The fact that he did not go on his official to KSU this weekend could be a significant developement for ISU. Maybe we will get thisguy afterall.

    Re: Recruiting: Taumoepeau Lists K-State as High

    I don't think we are even recruiting him. Once he decided to wait until signing day, and not sign early. Bojay Filimoeatu was good enough to wait for, Taumoepeau is not. I think we also stopped when we realized Louvan Green is better.

    I don't think either Green or Walton are any better than our 4th best DT, but I believe Green is better.

    Who do you think is better on ISU's current team? I am going with Ruemp, and then I don't know who else you include.McD looked unimpressive most of last year, and you have no idea how good Woods will be. Green starts if he comes to ISU.

    Re: Recruiting: Taumoepeau Lists K-State as High

    I'd put Rump, Laing, and McD ahead of them. I guess Green could've probably beat out McD this year, but I believe McD will improve. He'll probably be around 300 lbs next year. If we get Green, and he beats out Laing and McD I'd be pretty pumped. If Woods can get into that rotation thats even better.

    A huge factor here is that an extra 6 or 7 months from January through the summer with a Big 12 strength coach/lifting program is a big advantage for players already in the program.

    Why the hell would anyone go to KSU right now? They are in a continual state of transition until Snaggletooth Snyder dies. ISU has more upside in the near future.

    You go there when you have no other legit BCS offers. He had Ole Miss as a favorite and an offer, but it looks like he waited too long on that offer too.

    Doesn't look like he signed with K-State today. I don't know if ISU and the other schools that were looking at Taumoepeau all lost interest?

    So the school does not want to take a chance on him?
