    Football Recruiting: Henry Simon wants to make an impact

    I had the chance to speak with Henry Simon last night about his signing with Iowa State. Nice kid. He's confident that he'll be able to make an impact next season. Here's the story.

    I'm a little surprised he won't arrive until August. Summer school to graduate?

    Re: Football Recruiting: Henry Simon wants to make an impact

    Is he confident that he is that good...or that our current line is that bad?

    it's not like he's gonna say: "i doubt i will ever see the field" or something along those lines. of course he thinks he's gonna make an impact. every kid does.

    I'd go with this.

    Very nice, well-spoken young man. Coach Elliott had some good things to say about his character tonight after practice (read CF tomorrow for some quotes).

    Hope they really found a diamond in the rough with this guy. No D1 scholorships doesn't look that impressive, but got to trust CPR.

    Re: Football Recruiting: Henry Simon wants to make an impact

    With the size of a DT, making an impact isn't that hard. Just hit somebody.

    Tuba vs Thomas Patton


    Should be interesting to see which one we get. I would settle for somewhere in the middle.

    Re: Football Recruiting: Henry Simon wants to make an impact

    We're due for a Tuba/Curvey/Leaders/Carstens...whether we'll actually get that or not is to be seen. I love watching great D-Line play at Iowa State. Having good line play on both sides of the ball just seems right for Cyclone Nation.

    Elliott's quote when Simon signed with SDSU back in 2008 was that he hadn't played a whole lot of football so that he could have a higher upside.

    Since then he played one year at SDSU, was out of school for a year, and has been at Grossmont for one year. One could still make a case for expecting a higher upside - especially in year two in the program.

    False...I mean it helps to just hit somebody...but you're not going to make an impact just by hitting somebody.

    I agree. It's not like the guy you're hitting is some wimpy 5th grader. Guys at this level can shrug off hits from lesser humans.
