    2013 Recruit Prospects

    There may be a thread out there, but nothing that seems recent. I'm hoping we can keep a running thread like the Basketball thread. I don't have a big football twitter-net set up like I do for basketball, but I may expand one...

    This name may not be new, but I'll start with the most recent name of interest I've seen:

    Christian Morgan, TE

    Christian Morgan - Yahoo! Sports

    Me likes! BIG kid, BIG time interest list.

    I'm hoping some of you more connected to football than I can add to this.

    Don't know if it would be against the rules of posting but someone with an IowaPreps account should be able to tell us who the top Iowa prospects are

    Is it normal to have offers out to that many 4 stars this early?

    No chance now that Tulsa offered.

    As for offering 4 stars this early, I'm pretty sure we had a bunch of early offers out to 4 stars last season as well. I think the staff tries to get in the door as soon as possible hoping that some of the kids remember who was after them early. It worked to our advantage with Big Dawg Williams this year. ISU went after him early and stuck with him even after his injury when a lot of bigger schools backed off. I think that effort will really pay off with Williams.


    For the 2013 class I hope ISU can continue improving on their overall class ranking. The past few years we have improved the core of the classes by bringing in more solid 3 star players to develop. It would be really nice to pull in a few 4 stars to really add to the top end of the class.

    Wouldn't Ben Bruns be Jake Campos's coach at Vally? That might not hurt. I think it's high time ISU pulls in one of these 4 star type Iowa kids!

    I think it is. Like Cyhiphopp said, it's one of the only advantages we can have over the "power schools".

    I just like that we seem to be sticking our noses out a little more into the "4 star" territory while still be selective and not just throwing offers out to everyone like some schools... looking at you Nebraska

    Yeah, we do have connections with most of these kids. Either we've recruited other players form their school/area or we have an existing relationship with their coaches.
    There are a lot of solid schools in TX and FL that we have been looking at recruits and their underclassmen teammates for years.

    Yeah, I was a little disappointed to see that Dallas Skyline had something like 4 kids in the rivals 250 and we haven't offered any of them. Would be great to get them on a visit and have James White show them around.

    That prep report sure likes to use question marks.
