    Assessing the Big 12's needs filled

    Obviously, Ubben didn't watch the NSD special on since 4 signees are going to start out at LB. With Meeks' size and already in school, he IMO has the best chance to fill a hole this Fall. Like Madison's potential but he probably needs add to his body. Webster is going to be a Special Teams demon from day 1. And as mentioned, Mills is ranked as the 51st-best prospect in Florida according to the Orlando Sentinel. Young LB corps but playing a lot of nickel with the hybrid can make up for some of the youth. Toughest part of learning the position is dropping into pass coverage.


    Needs filled:Rodney Coe comes to Ames via junior college and will try and replace some losses along the defensive line, but the biggest need for the Cyclones has been offensive playmakers. Aaron Wimberly checks in via the juco ranks at running back, but can ISU develop Texas receivers Brandon Harris and Bryan Ajumobi into major weapons at the Big 12 level?

    Holes remaining: The Cyclones lost a pair of starters at linebacker and signed just one linebacker in this class, Florida native Brian Mills. Besides that, Iowa State did a nice job of bringing in big bodies along the defensive line and filling some offensive line holes, too, headlined by in-state prospect Jake Campos, who Iowa State swiped from Mizzou.

I'm not just your football coach; I'm not just here to win games. I could not be prouder of who we are and who we are becoming, together. You do things right in the classroom, off and on the field; that's whats's makes us Cyclones and that's what our culture's all about."

    It must be a tough job to do any type of research on the 8 other teams not named Texas and Oklahoma.
