    Nice write up. Getting these guys in from FL is awesome and it shows that networking/connections are huge.

    I think hiring the Burnhams may be CPR's best move so far in his head coaching career.

    I agree...I have to admit. Hiring Shane seemed to me a little like CPR was almost forced to get Shane to get Wally. I couldn't have been more wrong. Shane has been one our best recruiters and he's got a good reputation as a coach.

    Re: FOOTBALL RECRUITING: Persistent recruiting & connections led Pompey to Ames

    This article says he weighs 300#. Earlier he was 275-280. He seems like he will get some playing time in the fall.
    Maybe his brother should come to Iowa for 2 years in a JC, and 2 years at ISU, if he pans out??

    This was probably thrown around within the recruiting. Not guaranteed but definitely talked about.

    Iowa State's press released had him at 300. That's what I went by.

    Nice write-up, Chris.

    I think it bodes well for future recruiting that Shane Burnham, not only a good Florida, but the Defensive Tackles Coach, reeled in a top high school prospect at his own position.

    Now, land a couple more next class, Shane, and we'll really be on a roll!

    Re: FOOTBALL RECRUITING: Persistent recruiting & connections led Pompey to Ames

    I'm surprised we were able to land him without offering his brother. I wonder what schools did offer both...

    So did Shane sound like qualifying was just a formality now or what? That is kinda how it reads to me.


    It's all snark from here on out

    Is there any chance his brother ends up at a JUCO in the area?

    The schools who offered both were FCS I believe.
