    RECRUITING: A new prospect to keep an eye on

    This is pretty fresh news so I have no clue at all if Iowa State is interested, but when you factor that ISU has 2 open scholarships for next season, it would make sense.

    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    Fresh news in that you've heard something from within our program that makes you think we might go after him, or just fresh news. Since we aren't on the list of schools that were recruiting him as a high schooler, seems pretty unrealistic that we'd be in the running to land him. Don't get me wrong, he would be a good get, but it seems like our transfer U persona is starting to fade away.

    I agree we'll take few transfers in the future but a 2011 recruit would help balance the classes some now.

    Exactly! What would make anyone think that a kid from Virginia that went to Virginia Tech would be interested in going to Iowa State? I just don't get why every single transfer that is a good player gets brought up on here. We are interested in players that we have connections with such as Lockett from Minnesota that we recruited out of high school, Uthoff that is from Cedar Rapids that we also recruited out of high school. I just don't get why people continue to bring up people such as Oriakhi and this kid when there is clear that we have no ties to any of these players.

    Do you guys really think Chris would start a thread about a transfer if the staff wasn't going after him? This isn't Clones21 starting a thread here

    It could be that people like CW have access to information that you don't?

    Now, nothing may pan out with this kid for the reasons you mention.

    Yes he might but he should at least state that "i heard from a source that iowa state is interested in this kid"

    Just bringing up transfers that we have no connection with is kinda dumb though in my mind especially considering that there are close to 400 transfers and a ton of other schools i'm sure have open scholarships

    Almost all of those schools would be on his restricted list now, I'm guessing this round of recruiting will be a brand new set of schools.

    I like this to be posted, just so I know about it. Chris isn't even saying we're interested.

    We have open scholarships and this guy is a serious talent, so I'm sure we'll be one of the 50+ plus schools who want to talk to this guy. I suspect that is it.
