    Quan West

    Just to get away from the nonstop panic threads of CFH leaving for another job, and Allen Lazard not actually coming to ISU lets talk about West. The kid has the measurables and the potential to be a very good receiver for us. I see him as a deep/red zone threat. Not saying he is gonna be the next Blythe "would not be a bad thing" but he could be that kind of player for the next 4 years.

    I've thought since the day this kid arrived on campus that he was going to be a stud WR.

    Then he tore up his knee before ever seeing the field. But you are correct, if he can return to 100% he will be a huge threat for us. I like him... a LOT!

    Re: Quan West

    IIRC, he wasn't in two deeps for spring ball. Might have just been because he was coming off the injury

    Re: Quan West

    What about Jarvis West? He will be a Junior and I really think he needs to step up this year.

    Quan was our highest ranked wr recruit in the class. It would be a shame if he couldn't come back from that knee injury...

    Jarvis has to be a big threat for us this year in order to get back to a bowl.

    Re: Quan West

    Dondre Daley is the impressive receiver of that class. You know, another kid without even a profile, let alone stars or offers, when CPR first offered him?

    Re: Quan West

    What excites me the most about Quan West is his size. He is by far the biggest WR we have.

    Just for comparison.... some think Bundrage is a big target, and he's 6'2" 190 lbs. Quan West is 6'4" and 220 lbs.

    Size doesn't mean everything obviously, but if Quan can get healthy, he should be a downfield threat.

    Re: Quan West

    Some size in your receiving corp is a nice component to have; but, size really does not mean as much as one would think. Just look at the all conference receivers. Or the All-American receivers. Most are generally in the 5'11" to 6'3" range. It is uncommon to see taller receivers winning honors.

    When height (plus speed) does do some serious damage is when a team has a good wide receiving corp and then has a tall, fast TE (eg. Colin Franklin). The middle of the field is where height and speed can really mess up some defenses.

    Not sure. He's not in the most recent two deeps so that may mean he needs more time, or that the others are just better than him at this point. It's possible, even if he's healthy, that he is behind because he had to spend so much time rehabbing and not practicing.

    He worked out all Spring, and I'm pretty sure I saw him for a few plays in the Spring game.

    Re: Quan West

    There are also significantly more WR in the 5'11"-6'3" category than there are above 6'3".
