    Spring Practice Standouts To Me

    I've watched all the spring camp videos and the following are a few of the players who have stood out to me outside of our known commodities:

    Charlie Rogers (DB) Redshirt Frosh
    - The kid is a big DB and looks VERY legit and impressive on video. Definitely passes the eye test. While he is listed as backup right now to Kenneth Lynn, I wouldn't be surprised to see him challenge for that starting spot (I know CW is high on Charlie too)

    Tad Ecby (WR) Redshirt Soph - Ecby has decent size of 6'0" (although he appears larger), looks to have very good strength and makes some solid cuts. After watching the video, I see why PR has him starting. He seems much stronger and more confident than both Harris and Daley. Wouldn't be surprised to see him press Bundrage or West in the future for leading receiver.

    Quenton Bundrage (WR) Redshirt Soph - I really think Bundrage has the potential to be a future star for us. He showed flashes of it on the field last year, but was somewhat inconsistent (should be expected from a freshman). He has very good size (6'2"), good speed and decent strength. He played with great confidence in the spring videos.

    Pierre Aka (DT) Redshirt Frosh - I know this kid is only 3rd on the depth chart behind Krick and Bevins, which isn't super impressive, especially when you consider Bevins is also a RS Freshman, but when you watch video of him, the dude just looks like a legit Big 12 football player. Whether that translates to the field or not, who knows? He simply just stood out by his looks to me. Kind of the same way David Irving stands out (only not as HUGE).


    Anyways, just my thoughts based on very little evidence. Guess that is just what spring practice is for on the message boards. Just a bunch of fanatics trying to pull a little something out of pretty much nothing just because they are so desparate for football to get going again. Oh well, if that is what it is, I'll take it.

    The Bundrage-Lazard-Ecby combo could be scary good.

    It would definitely be a jumbo-sized lineup for receivers compared to what ISU is used to in the past. Like I've said before, as a program like ISU, we've always had to either grab small/fast or big/slow receivers while the big/fast receivers get grabbed up by the marquee programs. We'd also have that combo on the field for 2 full years together, which could be pretty awesome.

    Yeah, don't want to forget about Quan or Jarvis for that matter. I'm one who believes that if Jarvis is our #1 receiver by the end of the year, we could be in big trouble. Don't get me wrong, Jarvis is great for what he is which is kind of a scat, across the middle receiver, slot receiver (similar to Aaron Horne), but he should be a complimentory player, rather than our go-to guy.

    Enamored is the word for Wimberely at this point, he would start for a lot of Big 12 teams and Iowa would have him #1 also.

    I really wanted to include him as well as I know CW is very very high on him too, but for what we've got of video so far, there isn't a ton of it on him. Also, for what video there is in spring practices of him, it is hard to make too many judgements.

    For what it is worth, while I really want to buy into Wimberly, I just can't help but let the name JJ Bass slip into my mind. He was the last Juco running back recruit I can remember with a ton of hype that never lived up to it. Haha, I guess I don't want to forget the imfamous Bo Williams too.

    Re: Spring Practice Standouts To Me

    I'm just excited that spring practice is under way and the spring game is less than 3 weeks away. We are young all over the field, except OL, but may have more natural talent than Rhoads has ever had. I know, he says every year that this is his most talented team, but this year I don't believe talent will big the big separater in some of the games like it has been in the past. I think that thing that may hold us back will be lack of experience. But I just don't see us getting ran over by the elite teams anymore.

    I would take Jarvis as a "poor man's Wes Welker" any day, who is always there to bail out Sam when needed, with 6 to 8 receptions per game across the middle, on the slant, in the flat, or wherever. If this happens, we are not in trouble.

    That guy you are describing sounds like last year's Aaron Horne and yes, we were in trouble with receivers last year too. In fact, if you haven't noticed, we've been in wide receiver trouble ever since Todd Blythe. While it is easy to watch spot instances of where we were proud of our receivers over the past couple years and saw some fun play, the fact of the matter is that we've been in the cellar of the Big 12 receivers wise for years now and need a Bundrage or Ecby to pull us out.

    Let's hope he's more the Dwayne Crutchfield type performer.


    No matter what, I could NEVER cheer for Dirt and Urine.

    Charles Rogers is going to be a stud down the road. He looks as physically ready as any freshman I've seen.
