    Preferred Walkon

    Couldn't find if this had already been posted.
    Dowling TE/LB Ben Boesen will be with ISU this fall as a preferred walkon. Great young man who will represent the Cyclones well. 6'4, 210 and projects as a TE. Has a great frame to put weight on. has always been "in season" throughout hs as a 3-sport athlete so I will be curious to see what a full offseason of weights and eating will do for him.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    Awesome! Exactly the type of walk-on that ISU needs to be getting.

    Re: Preferred Walkon

    I'm stoked about Boesen. I was impressed with him in the state playoffs back in the fall. He was very good at getting his arms out and catching with his hands instead of waiting for the football to come into his body.

    Re: Preferred Walkon

    I wonder if he has the frame and instincts to end up at DE? That would be ideal since we are having much more luck bringing in TEs lately.

    Either way, I am very happy to welcome him to the family.

    Re: Preferred Walkon

    This is awesome news and something that I felt was missing from Rhoads' era so far. I hope we continue to get quality walk-ons.

    let's hope his friendship with Amara Darboh is enough to get him here as well.

    Saw this a few weeks ago and am also stoked about it. Kid has great hands and is smart. Has potential to really grow into a solid contributor.
