    New 2015 QB/Athlete Offer with interesting ISU ties

    I got the ok from the family to post that Joe Burrow got an offer today. For personal reasons I am extremely excited about this. A great family with different connections to Ames and Iowa State. Joe's father, Jim Burrow is currently an assistant with Solich at Ohio. He also was an assistant to Walden back in the day. In between coaching moves at the college level, he was also my head coach for Ames High in '99 & '00. I graduated with Joe's brother whom I still keep very close contact with. He has been keeping me in the loop on "little joe" (as i always knew him) to being one of the most talented QB's in the state of Ohio this past fall. I don't want to speculate on anything at this point but I would love to see him come back to Ames.

    How many brothers are there? Im guessing its the same family that produced Jamie Burrow...a LB at Ne (I cant even finish typing the word without getting sick to my stomach) 8 or so years ago.

    Edit: A quick Google search yielded that Jamie was a senior in Lincoln in '01. Time flies. Also, his hometown was listed as Ames.

    Thanks for the additional information. Sons of coaches are usually better than average players.

    Joey Burrow appears to be a really top notch QB recruit. I did a quick search and see where he was selected the Gatorade Ohio Player of the Year (this past Fall - as a junior). The stats listed for his junior year are as follows: 218 completions out of 306 attempts for 47 TDs, and 3732 yards. He had a QB rating of 140.6. He also rushed for 546 yards and 9 TDs. If you have time, watch his junior highlights............Joe Burrow - - Hudl - Hudl

    Wow, had no idea there was an even littler Burrow. His dad did coach here but the family were always big Neb. fans.

    Happy Joe ..... after watching Joey Burrow's junior highlights, you have my permission to use WHATEVER influences you have with the Burrow family to get Joey to play his college ball in Ames.

    So the million dollar question would have to be, do we have a chance to land Burrow? I know it's early, but if the family cheers for the bugeaters and with all the other programs sniffing around is there a chance?

    Yeah I just got off the phone with his brother and promised to make a sales call to Joe in the near future. He did just visit WVU but there are obviously some questions about staff retention there.. I told him that Rhoads wasn't going anywhere.

    Edit: Thinking more, I guess I should probably just talk to his brother. Even though close friends, I forget about those "rules".

    Re: New 2015 QB/Athlete Offer with interesting ISU ties

    It's really odd to read a thread about a recruit that contains actual information about that recruit. I am a little taken aback. Where's the projected lineup w/ and w/o Burrow?

    I guess you'll have to...burrow for it.




    Part of this fanbase is like the parable of the blind men and the elephant.

    If I remember right his dad played at Nebraska too. Quite an age gap between Jamie and Joe as Jamie has to be in his early 30's.
