    Cyclones lose recruit...

    Not sure if this has been posted already. From Iowa City paper, I State loses recruit to Iowa.Not good news here.
    Recruit picks Hawks over 'Clones

    By Pat Harty
    Iowa City Press-Citizen

    Iowa lost to Iowa State in football last month, but the Hawkeyes gained a little satisfaction by receiving a verbal commitment from former Cyclone recruit Russell Ellington, a 6-foot-3, 205-pound outside linebacker from Homewood (Ill.) Floosmoor High School near Chicago.

    "I called the coaches at Iowa (Thursday) night and gave them my verbal commitment," Ellington said to Rivals.com. "I really had a chance this time to get to know more of the schools and the coaches involved in my recruiting.

    "I feel completely at home and comfortable with Iowa and so does my family. I'm going to make an official visit to Iowa in December, and that's it. I'm done with taking official visits, and I'm done with my recruiting process. I'm a solid verbal commitment to the University of Iowa."

    Ellington told Rivals.com that he made a "rushed decision" when he first picked Iowa State. He also said the Iowa coaches were recruiting him to play either safety or maybe wide receiver.

    "maybe play wide reciever"

    Well it's good to know Chizik isn't selling these guys a line of BS and just telling them what they want to hear.

    Wrex Grossman has a better chance of making the Pro Bowl than he probably does of playing WR.

    Well 6'3"/215/4.6 doesn't seem to out of place, I have seen stranger things happen. Also looks like he had some good recieving stats last year 1000yds and 14 TDs. I still wish we would have got him.
