    Who were you most worried we might lose today?

    I thought someone would swoop in on Sam Richardson (QB). You have to like our quarterback depth at this point. One of these guys is going to pan out.

    STill worried about Brackens. But I guess the coaches wouldn't have mentioned him in the videos if they weren't confident about his commitment.

    Kenneth Lynn going into the day. He's due to sign tomorrow now, but I hope his phone is turned off tonight.

    Well, if you have like 7 scholarship QB's, I sure hope that one of them is good? We have more QB's on scholarship than we do DT's. Sorry... I couldn't resist!

    Re: Who were you most worried we might lose today?

    QB Richardson was also my biggest concern. He got some nice honors at the end of the season and heard rumors (on this board) that other schools were talking to him. To his credit he honored his committment, and though nobody knows, I think he'll be our starter for several years. We've added some good o-linemen and receivers, especially slot receivers, so the longterm future of our offense looks good. I also like the short term if Steele Jantz is the diamond in the rough he looks like he could be.

    Re: Who were you most worried we might lose today?

    Iowa had 18 high school QB's playing for them last year. Ithink all but 4 of them switched positions in college. So just because we have a crap load does not meen they won't switch positions.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    Not to be cynical, as I like this class, but who were we going to lose them to? Not many of them had other offers, at least from schools in BCS conferences. Point is that it isn't exactly like people poaching Alabama's recruits.....

    Are you serious?? Devondrick Nealy was wanted by about everyone. Standard chose between us and Nebraska.

    Those are probably the most sought after guys. Brackens, and others had solid offer sheets as well. Overall it isn't a bad class at all. We have one DE prospect. But videos of Irving are impressive as hell. That kid could be a beast and dominate the field by the time he is done. He isn't even 18 yet.

    Sam Richardson (QB).

    I thought we might lose him to Texas Tech in the end. TT seems to do that to us every year. Cqulin Hulbert (LB) was stolen from us on signing day last year by TT.

    Also, I think Sam has the ability to be our starter at some point. I think he will have a great career at ISU. I'm glad he's on board!

    most worried about any of our offensive skill players. We need a drastic improvement in that area.

    Most schools have around 10+ players that were QBs in high school. In most small schools, or states like Iowa that do not have many D-1 players, put the best player at QB.
