    Re: New Verbal

    I'm glad we got this kid. While many are frustrated about the "we didn't want him" stuff from Iowa, I would say I'd feel a bit better if Iowa had offered. They've obviously seen him many times and have chosen not to offer, finding other recruits more worthy of a scholarship. Say what you want about Iowa, but Kirk and the crew does seem to have a good eye for o-line talent, and it would be nice if they had also wanted him.

    That was far too complementary and I'm going to go chug some Listerine now...

    Just got off the phone with CR Prairie OL Bryce Meeker, who called Iowa State his "dream school" in explaining commitment decision today.

    Love converting former Hawks to the good guys!

    Who is the 4th?

    Maybe Iowa didn't like his footwork or something. Oh well, looks like a beast already.

They do already have the Paulsen twins. That might be part of it. Here's a link with a write up about Iowa's dealings with Meeker *(towards the bottom):

    http://iowa.247sports.com/Article/Th...neral-29038443

    Iowa's Chances with Bryce Meeker: To be fair, Iowa hasn't offered Meeker, and if they did, I think we'd be looking at a different story. Meeker has been around Iowa's radar though, and he's an intriguing offensive tackle recruit at 6-foot-7, 290 pounds. He has the length a program like Iowa covets on the edges of the offensive line.
    Apparently Iowa never saw what they wanted to see out of Meeker though, because he's been to countless camps and junior days, and has yet to receive an offer.
    I've predicted Meeker will end up at Iowa State

    Iowa State saw him at camp and pulled the trigger on an offer a few days ago, and now it looks like a underrated recruit who would have been a guaranteed Hawkeye had he received an offer, will end up in Ames.
    Sure, the Hawks can still offer, but at this point since they've waited so long; I'm not sure they will.
    Perfect. He'll come in with a chip on his shoulder ready to prove they were wrong. Welcome, Bryce, to a school and coaching staff that wants you.

    Reynolds was bumped from a greyshirt to a full scholly offer today, so will count toward 2014. But the idea is still the same.

    I'm going to love seeing what happens with Mangino and Blaney at the helm of our Oline. Two proven guys leading a good looking group. Exciting!

    I can see him being a solid lineman down the road.

    Iowa didn't want him at least not yet. They have other targets they like more. It's not that they don't have room bc Newborg is going to the Dline. So the only have 2 OL commits.
