    Cyclone 2014 class

    Starting to look through your recruiting class just to educate myself on the rivals to the west in Lincoln and Ames. I have to say that I am pretty impressed with Lazard of course, but I feel Warren could be the really special player out of this class besides Lazard. With his speed and production it makes me wonder why he wan't recruited more heavily. Was he a late bloomer his senior year? His clips remind me of Melvin Gordon's clips. Wait til he puts some good football weight and watch out. So far Wesley, Lazard and Warren really stick out.

    That being said here are 3 questions for you guys before I continue to look at more reels.

    1. Beyond Juco who are the players you feel will see the field the earliest?

    2. What offensive and defensive recruits excite you the most?

    3. Who do you guys feel the sleeper of the class was?

    1. Lazard obviously and our punter Colin Downing will be the starter the moment he walks on campus. I also think Brian Peavy has an outside shot to play Freshman year like Tribune.

    2. Most excited about Michael Warren and Jauan Wesley. Couple of big time playmakers. On the D, I'm jacked to see Sam Seonbuchner in a few years. Northrop sounds like our Nickelback in 2 years.

    3. The sleepers may be Warren and Mike Johnson just because of how late we picked them up.

    Re: Cyclone 2014 class

    Obviously, Lazard is the headliner. He's going to play. Downing will start right away. I expect all of the JUCOs to be right in the two deep or competing for it. Other than that, I'm guessing all of the FR will redshirt, but it wouldn't surprise me to see a CB like Ruth, Johnson or Peavey play. Maybe Syria or Warren at RB, but I doubt it.

    I think that the strength of the class is at WR, CB and RB. Wesley is a great get for the slot, although he will probably redshirt and wait for Jarvis West to graduate. Good developmental players on the OL and TE. Seonbuchner will be a good LB down the line. Glaring hole at DL and DE as far as HS kids go.

    Re: Cyclone 2014 class

    Warren didn't get his qualifying scores until later in the year. He really wanted to go to OU, but they took other backs instead. He had a relationship with Ayeni already started so it was pretty easy for Ayeni to pull him in when the got the RB job.

    As for sleeper of the class, I'm going to go with Syria.

    I found nothing wrong or "trolling" about his post..

    1. Lazard (stud) and Downing (Saw some of his punting highlights and we will miss Kirby's production, but not for too long. He'll be good) Other than them I don't see any 2014 class freshman playing this year barring injury or something.

    2. Lazard again (obvs.) but also excited about DLC (highlights look good and coaches were high enough on him that they weren't going to take a QB at all in the class unless it was him and that says something.) Sam Seonbuchner at LB and Reggan Northrup at DB both have me excited. Kory Kodanko will also be a hell of an OL down the line.

    3. Brian Peavy and De'Monte Ruth both could be sleepers at the DB position but I'd go with Michael Warren at RB or Terry Ayeni on the Dline.

    I am a Hawkeye fan. I just enjoy talking to other fanbases about football. It can get boring only discussing Iowa football. Always curious to see who is coming up and what is going on with the rival programs. I live in Bellevue, NE now so I am always up to date with those guys. A funny group they are. Not a troll, but will probably post here and there on CF.

    Re: Cyclone 2014 class

    The LB from Wisconsin is pretty darn good. Also Syria and Warren could be a great 1-2 punch someday. Syria is a super smooth runner. Not sure who is in your RB stable besides Wimberly, but if they flounder I could see one or both play.

    Tell me about it. lol There is a small percentage of posters here that do it, but find a way to discuss Iowa in EVERY thread when it doesn't call for it.

    I also almost forgot about Martinez Syria btw - he looks really good on tape.

    backup is DeVondrick Nealy, he is great in return game and somewhat battle tested at RB despite being behind White, Johnson, Woody, Wimberly the past 2 years:

    CAREER STATS RUSHING RECEIVING
    SEASON ATT YDS AVG LNG TD REC YDS AVG LNG TD
    2013 41 158 3.9 22 2 7 60 8.6 27 1
    2012 16 81 5.1 17 0 3 52 17.3 38 0

    I would guess Rob Standard would be behind him. He played mostly special teams last year, but scored a TD in mop up duty against WIU in 2012. He was a stud setting the HS rushing record out of STL, MO @ Chaminade.

    1. Lazard will more than likely play right away, as will the punter Downing. Defensive back Mike Johnson is a guy who may be forced to see the field earlier rather than later, especially if their are injuries at cornerback this season.

    2. On offense it's got to be Lazard and Warren. I believe Warren was a guy who a lot of schools weren't sure whether he'd qualify or not, hence the reason he's ending up in Ames and not staying in the state of Oklahoma. On defense Sam Seonbuchner is a guy who has been compared to A.J. Klein, and who I'm certainly excited to have.

    3. I'd say the sleeper is Martinez Syria. He's a fullback type who can probably get up to 230-240 pounds, but will be faster than Jeff Woody.

    Re: Cyclone 2014 class

    The guy referred to as DLC. Is he being projected at QB? He seems like a very good athlete like a future at WR or CB. Kid seems like a playmaker. His clips remind me of Micah Hyde's out of HS.

    He'll play QB when he's first on campus. Obviously there is always a chance a guy who is that athletic will switch positions if he's buried in the depth chart, but he was very much recruited as a QB.

    Forgot to mention Orion Salters as a sleeper. He's a small, fast guy who could excel as a slot receiver down the road.
