    Terrell Clinkscales

    Four star Juco DT out of Dodge City. What are our chances of landing him? Looks like he could help out alot on the D-Line.

    Re: Terrell Clinkscales

    Bama offered him now. So all we really have to offer him is immediate playing time. That's it. We have nothing else.

    We just have to convince him that he may never see the field at a school like Bama. At ISU he'd probably be our #1 DL right away.

    IDK about this. I have a hard time seeing anyone beat out Coe for that spot.

    You gotta be kidding me, right? Coe has been a pretty big disappointment thus far by most accounts.

    Ok Adam. You tell me what else ISU has to offer him that Alabama doesn't? Cold winters? Snow?

    If he was guaranteed to start at both ISU or Alabama, why would he pick ISU over Alabama? Playing time is the ONLY thing we have to offer him that Alabama doesn't. You know it's true. Just admit it.

    Idk, is our marching band better than Alabama's, or what?

    Yeah...I'm hoping that's sarcasm. Coe is just not good nor should much have been expected from him. He wasn't even a factor in JC last year.

    Thank you.

    I hope that poster was being sarcastic. Otherwise, they need a lesson in Football 101 I'm afraid.

    I'll help Adam out here. ISU has a weight room like no one else in the country, each rack is customized by Yancy that no one else in the country has. While most people look at Iowa's cold winters as a negative, it can be used as a positive. Yeahh you'd like to play in warm climates all season long, but at the next level you won't have those ideal conditions all season long, why not prepare yourself for these conditions while you're in college? Want to talk about playing time? Alabama has DT's that they've had in their system since they were true freshman, that get the schemes, and I'm sure Terrell is a stud but they're going to play a guy who's been in their program over him, so why get buried on the depth chart and be a practice player for the two years you have in college? He grew up in Chicago, so Chicago is closer to Ames than Tuscaloosa is, this way his family could watch him play. Also at ISU, it's a family atmosphere, I'm sure it's that way at Alabama as well, but Coach Rhoads really cares about each individual player and treats them like his own son..I see players at Alabama as just a number, just a temporary son to Coach Saban. Plus our academics at ISU are second to none in the country. Each player has the opportunity to have a personal tutor and all the utensils needed to earn their degree and be successful not only in football, but in life as well.

    Re: Terrell Clinkscales

    I am more worried about Texas Tech getting him. Tech's dline are all seniors so spots would be open for playing time.

    I think Bama already has two DLine commits this year.

    Not sure what this means, but it can't be bad.

    Re: Terrell Clinkscales

    I can't imagine that comparing weight rooms and facilities with Alabama is going in our favor.

    Re: Terrell Clinkscales

    Between ISU, KSU, Tech, and Bama as of now it seems. Does he have a timeline for deciding?
