    Blake Gimbel

    Does anybody know if there is any interest in Gimbel by the from the Cyclones, or vice versa? I keep hearing really good things about him, like he makes passes through some tight windows and has a great arm. I've personally never seen him play though. I also heard a rumor that he wants to come to ISU...no official source just hearsay.


    What do fellow CFers think? Is he D1 calibur? Does anyone know him or his family, is he even Cyclone fan?

    I'd take him as a walk-on but wouldn't use up a scholarship on him. He has a pretty decent arm, but a lot his stats are from his receivers, especially the stephenson brothers.

    63% completion percentage. 1900+ yards and 13 Tds, 6 ints, Stats are definitely a product of the system and look very good. However they get inflated by some little things Mtown does, like bubble screens (tons) and on Jet sweep the QB pitches it forward so it counts as a completion. Good HS player, but I think there's a good reason the D1 programs have stayed away. The guy shattered some passing records last year so its not like teams haven't checked him out.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    Iowa State invited him to the Tulsa game. But that doesn't mean a whole lot. They had Sam Straub Kyle Strcavevich and tons of other high school players from Iowa at the game.

    Re: Blake Gimbel

    Definitely a Hawkeye family and don't think it would be a scholarship offer. We already have Hodge and Lanning.

    Re: Blake Gimbel

    I have this odd feeling that 4 years from now we will be talking about how well Gimble runs the UNI offense and wondering how the ISU D is going to gameplan against them.

    Re: Blake Gimbel

    I know Gimbel well, but not too familiar with his recruitment, so take what i say with a grain of salt. I know he's had contact with iowa st and isu has hosted him when they played tulsa. Hes had contact with Northwestern, and im pretty sure he visited Wayne St. this past weekend. He is a huge hawkeye guy though, but he's coming around to the Cyclone way of things and he is a HUGE Klein fan.
