    Big time recruits at ISU

    I don't follow recruiting as much as I used to but who was the last big time recruit that actually panned out in Ames? I'm convinced that ISU is a place where hard work trumps talent with the kids in our program. I'm thinking either Seneca or Reggie Hayward were the last big time prospects to have a respectable career

    Re: Big time recruits at ISU

    Reggie Hayward would be my best answer and I'm not sure how "big time" he was really considered as a recruit.

    Re: Big time recruits at ISU

    I guess you'd have to define "big time".

    Agreed. One could argue Leonard Johnson was big-time if you look at the schools we beat out for him. He's certainly had a nice career so far.

    Re: Big time recruits at ISU

    Since star ratings and bcs offers are pretty much a must by most people on this site, I would say a "big time" player would be somebody with more than 6 bcs offers or someone with 4 stars or higher...like I said, I don't follow recruiting so I don't know who would fit this bill.

    Just seems like the 4* guys have never panned out here recently like jj bass and sed johnson

    Wasn't Aaron Brant (sp?) pretty highly recruited? He had a nice career.

    Using his definition of big time recruit (6 BCS offers or 4*), I also think it would be LJ.

    LJ had offers from us, South Florida, Ole Miss, Illinois, Michigan, Nebraska, and West Virginia for BCS programs.

    Link

    EDIT: I went back to 2008 and looked at every class from then until now looking for more players that would qualify under the criteria of a 3* with minimum 6 BCS offers or a 4*, while being or becoming respectable contributors (Sorry, Sedrick). These all did:

    Ter'Ran Benton (8 BCS offers)
    Jerome Tiller (7 BCS offers)
    Darius Reynolds (4*)
    Anthony Young (4*)
    DeVondrick Nealy (14 BCS offers!)

    Shontrelle and Pompey also had 5 BCS offers apiece as 3*.

    Kinda funny to go back and look at some of these recruits. David Sims coming in as a 2*, wow.

    David Sims was a four star that committed to Oklahoma and didn't make it on campus. I don't think he ever got re-rated and I'm pretty sure that those two stars are just standard unless the player is rated.
