    Recruiting Priorities

    As a member on HawkeyeReport as well, we've been discussing Iowa's recruting needs as recuiting heats up with the summer camps on the horizon. What are ISU's recruiting priorities???

    Re: Recruiting Priorities

    Are you really planning on taking the opinion of this message board to what the football recruiting priorities might be?

    I'm not sure anyone hear could accurately state our real priorities, aside from maybe Chris or a few others.

    Re: Recruiting Priorities

    Funny, I was just putting together a post on that. I hope that you don't mind terribly if I don't give you the credits?

    One short answer is that ISU's recruiting priorities depend on whether everyone makes it into school or not--and just who doesn't.

    The other short answer is that, even if everyone qualifies, defensive linemen will still be at the top of the list.

    Fortunately, it looks (to me ) like--aside from upgrading WR--CPR finally has the program to the point where the most crucial issue is replacing graduation losses (albeit sometimes with upgrades), rather than patching holes.

    A good place to be!

    Part of this fanbase is like the parable of the blind men and the elephant.

    Who knew?

    Re: Recruiting Priorities

    Sorry. I'm just not very aware of what your team has coming back and coming up. I figured that the fanbase would have some opinion as to strengths and weaknesses for positions in the next year or so.

    Athletic 7' receivers with sub 4.4 speed. A QB with a cannon arm and absolute precision. The 2007-08 New York Giants defensive line.

    I'd be happy with 6'11" WR's, but pretty much this exactly.

    I don't want that scrub Strahan on my team.

    Re: Recruiting Priorities

    None of this is based on number's, simply where we need help.

    1. Dline-If Pompey makes it that reduces pressure quite a bit but I still think we need at least 2 DTs and 2 DE's due to the losses in the next couple years and the amount of time it will take to develop the athletes we will get.

    2. CB-We will lose our tope four in the next two years. I like what we have there but I would like a couple more.

    3. LBers-Perhaps as great of need as CB. We only brought in two last year and Miller could end up on the Dline. I think we need a Mike and a Sam in this class.

    4. Darboh

    5. Big outside possession receiver. I really like Cedric Gilbert last year because I felt like he could be a Marquis Hamilton type. Nothing special but I guy that's stronger than anyone covering him and can battle for the short passes in big situations.

    6. Oline. We still need to continue to build depth.

    7. Safeties. We have a lot of young guys there but a couple more in the pipeline would be great.

    We already took care of QB for the year IMO. Scout has our early guy rated number 30 right now. Unless there is potential for position change (Knott) then I doubt we are looking for another one. If Robert Standard doesn't make it we will need to look at another back as we will lose SJ, JW and JW all at once. If he does, we have a little more room but I would still like to see one in this class, preferably Roberts. TE isn't a need. Slot receiver shouldn't be a need this year but we will take one if there's a good one out there.


    It's all snark from here on out

    Re: Recruiting Priorities

    whoever said receivers is right. everyone on here assumes D-line yet we roll in 10 WR every class and 1 DT. then everyone says "well theres only like 2 guys in the whole country that are any good at playing D-line"

    this has happened every year since rhoads got here

    I'm not sure if we will offer a scholarship to one but we need to bring in another place kicker. Mahoney and Guyer are both seniors.

    Re: Recruiting Priorities

    1 QB, (I like to see 1 per class. We have already signed two so we're good)
    2 Safeties
    2 Defensive Tackles
    1 Defensive End
    1 Running Back
    2 Corners
    1-2 Tight Ends
    1 Kicker
    1 Punter
    2 O line
    As many talented receivers as possible
    Any opportunity to upgrade talent from there

    I agree, outside the obvious DL these will be the biggest need next class. There were a couple of LB committs who switched their committment late the last two classes. In two years we'll lose Knott and Klein.

    Good call. I missed that. We do need a kicker.
