    New ESPN Ranking for Lazard

    149th overall
    20th WR
    4.65 40 time

    Iowa State -WR Allen Lazard (Urbandale, Iowa/Urbandale) climbs to No. 149 from No. 224: Our concern with Lazard was that he had some of the same deficiencies that Northwestern's Kyle Prater did coming out, but the reality is that while there are similarities, Lazard is more flexible and sudden, which gives him bigger upside to develop as a route runner. Don't count out Lazard, an Iowa State commit, as a flex-WR/H-back from the slot, a position he played and looked very good in at The Opening.

    Fact of the matter is rankings don't matter once you step on campus. He'll have a lot of people doubting how good he is and I'm sure it'll make him hungrier to prove those people wrong.

    Re: New ESPN Ranking for Lazard

    Is it normal for there to be a ranking so different between Rivals and ESPN?

    Re: New ESPN Ranking for Lazard

    Hes got the chance to be a 5* on Rivals and a probable 3* by by espn. Makes perfect sense. Cant help but think his commitment to ISU hurt him with ESPN.

    Re: New ESPN Ranking for Lazard

    ESPN has Victor Holmes as our second best recruit, Rivals has him as a 2*. I trust Rivals more than ESPN but it's interesting to see the differences.

    This is true. A commitment to any school more prestigious, and I have no doubt he would've been higher. But, it's part of being an Iowa State fan. Gotta prove people wrong, it's our job.

    For a guy like Lazard? Yes. For a guy like Dupree? Probably not.

    He just climbed almost 80 spots. Cripes.

    The No. 224 best to number #149 is for all player / all positions or is that just WR?

    He's a 4 star on ESPN along with Rivals. What are you talking about?

    How is Lazard a probably 3 star by ESPN when they have him a 4 star and in their top 150 and they have more than 400 players ranked as 4 stars?

    Re: New ESPN Ranking for Lazard

    Rankings dont mean a damn thing. Someones gotta get him the ball and for that to happen its gonna take a solid line, qb and good blocking rbs. Cant wait to watch him put on the Cyclone jersey.

    Re: New ESPN Ranking for Lazard

    Either way he is a consensus top 20 WR and a consensus 4 star.

    Re: New ESPN Ranking for Lazard

    The guy they're comparing him to was rated higher by both ESPN and Rivals, and he has 11 total catches in 2 years, with no touchdowns.
