    Nealy and Standard are the backups.

    According to Rivals, Nealy had offers from Arkansas, Auburn, Michigan, Tennessee, Ole Miss, and others. Given the fact that he is trying to change how he hits holes instead of trying to break everything outside, and with a refurbished O Line, I am expecting greater things from him this year. He's one of those guys that has the speed to take it to the house every time he touches it.

    Re: Cyclone 2014 class

    I am going with LB Willie Harvey as a future sleeper. Nobody talks about him and it seems as if many don't even realize he is part of the class. The last LB we signed around 6'0 200 with not many major offers turned out OK (Jeremiah George)

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.
    Suspect we will see a lot of Syria around the goal lines.

    Re: Cyclone 2014 class

    I think Warren could see time as the #3 RB. Downing starting at punter, Lazard seeing time at WR, and I think we may have to play a freshman CB as well. I personally think Johnson looks like the best of the bunch there, but we will really have to wait and see about that.

    Re: Cyclone 2014 class

    Not trying to be a troll, but let me put things into perspective for everyone who is overly optimistic about these players.

    Anyone under 175 lbs will probably redshirt (this is the Big 12, not the Sun Belt) that takes out Wesley, Salters, Peavy and Ruth for the season.

    Mike Warren's major contributions to his stats for his high school career were his speed and his line which consisted of a five star for the 2015 class.

    DLC led his team to a 2-8 record for his senior season. In QB's, wins are the biggest statistic.

    I see Lazard, Seonbuchner, Johnson, Kodanko and Syria as the ones who can contribute early because of either sheer talent or what they bring to the table.

    Re: Cyclone 2014 class

    Lazard is the most physically gifted and there are surely snaps as a backup to Brundage and Montgomery.

    However, RB may offer the greatest possibility for snaps. Wimberly is smaller and my fear is he will get worn down with more than 15-20 touches per game. That means 10-15 snaps for Nealy, Warren, Syria, etc. The bulk of those snaps will go to an every down back, but there are:probably 5 carries a game for a short yardage/goal line back.

    Re: Cyclone 2014 class

    OK let's get a few things straight here...
    You're right Wimberly is probably only suited for 15-20 carries per game. You're correct that Nealy will get a healthy dose of attempts as well. But when you mention Syria and Warren as the next men in, you seem to ignore the fact that there are 2 other upper class men rb's in front of them (Standard & Tyler Brown) unless you know something we don't.

    Also add Justin Webster to the group as he has switched from linebacker to RB, where he was pretty impressive in high school. At 6 foot, 225 lbs he will likely challenge Standard to fill the role Woody had last year. I just highly doubt Syria or Warren playing as Freshmen. IMO they are destined to redshirt.

    You may be thinking of Justin Madison.

    Both Madison and White moved from linebacker to DE. For Madison it's probably his more natural position as he's an speed rusher anyway.
