    I'm pretty sure it means he's guaranteed a roster spot, he doesn't have to try out.

    Is he close to SDW like Aaron Law is to Niang?

    I wonder if Law or McBeth is moving on. If they fill the 13th scholarship, they won't have room for 3 walkons.

    Re:2012 Cam Fowler: Preferred Walk-On

    More importantly is he close to someone we are recruiting?

    I thought it was more like the coaches aren't giving him a scholarship right away, but if they like what they see after a year, he will get one the next year.

    At least that was my understanding of it from a guy I know who was a preferred walk on for football.

    Maybe Marquez Walker? Same AAU program.

    Re: 2012 Cam Fowler: Preferred Walk-On

    Fowler was teammates with Sherron Dorsey-Walker, same AAU team and likely where we watched him on multiple occasions. The REACH Legends AAU program also has two 2013 players that Iowa State has shown interest in or offered, Martez Walker is an up and coming forward whom Iowa State has offered and another guard, Kahlil Felder Jr. has Iowa State interest as well.

    Sounds like it makes sense.

    Step 2 of the process: Fans complain about "wasting a scholarship on a walk-on."

    Re: 2012 Cam Fowler: Preferred Walk-On

    Preferred walk on means he is guaranteed a spot. A walk on is someone who tries out and makes the team based on performance.

    Re: 2012 Cam Fowler: Preferred Walk-On

    After watching the videos it's pretty clear he is a PG. Now we have 3 PG's that have a recruited walk on status or had a recruited walk on status. Bubu, A. Law, and Cam. I wonder if this means A. Law or A. McBeth won't be with us next year? Or if this means that we aren't getting Finney-Smith/Uthoff and we are filling the 15th roster spot with Cam. I'm trying not to over analyze it.
