    Penn State players - do we try to get these guys to transfer to ISU?

    Well, now that the NCAA has granted all Penn State players the ability to transfer without sitting out a year, do you think ISU has a chance to get any of these players? There is even a clause that says even if you have a max amount of scholarships on your roster already, you can still add these players. You just have to reduce your scholarships for the next year. Do you think Rhoads will get anyone or does ISU even have a plan to welcome a former Penn State player?

    Re: Penn State players - do we try to get these guys to transfer to ISU?

    I'd be surprised if we have any relationships with any players on the Penn State roster. We don't recruit the NE very much, if at all.

    Iowa on the other hand could have a legit shot at some.

    /\ This. I would be very surprised if we were in the top 5 for any of these guys when they committed to PSU. I would expect a lot of the transfers to end up at Big 10 schools.

    Re: Penn State players - do we try to get these guys to transfer to ISU?

    If there were any players who we previously recruited I wouldn't be surprised if they made some kind of contact to let them know they are welcome to transfer but as far as landing any of their top tier talent I think the chances are slim. You know all the major programs were probably on the phones as soon as they could. Their top RB Silas Redd supposedly already has an offer from USC.

    On ESPN right now, it sounds like their starting RB is headed to USC, an OL possibly to Oklahoma State, and someone else that I missed.

    I don't think that we're going to be in the running here.

    Re: Penn State players - do we try to get these guys to transfer to ISU?

    One high school coach said he took 10 calls in the first half hour of the announcement yesterday. Said 10 coaches called him right away. So maybe we are calling. Any player is a long shot though. Except probably the lower rated guys. The big boys are all over this.

    I agree we don't have much of a shot with any of them. But I'm guessing most that transfer will leave the Big 10 completely. Mainly to not have to compete against their teammates that stayed.

    I'm guessing it will be all over the board as to where they land but think most of them will end up outside the Big 10.

    According to Rivals, there are a total of 0 recruits, dating back to 2008, that chose Penn State and also had an offer from Iowa State. That pretty much means we don't have any relationship with any of those kids.

    The only way would be if a new coach had any previous relationships.

    Clearly he can't take playing in that cesspool in the Valley and wants to get to a program that plays with integrity and refuses to violate the rules.

    What was CPRs recruiting region when he was at Pitt? May not have connections with players because they were real young then but might have some with HS coaches.

    One of their 4-star DB recruits (Ross Douglas) just committed to Michigan.

    Their incoming recruits I could see going to Big 10 schools as they don't have a history at PSU yet.

    My main point was the current players I don't see going to too many Big 10 schools. Just my gut feeling.

    Tell every single penn state player that you will start from day one at iowa state and we might get a player. Atleast that is what I would tell them.
