    I saw him retweeting info about our last two commits and i think so too. Dont know if hes good or not. But dont think iowa will offer.

    I don't much about Good-Jones. I am from western Iowa and live in NE now. Definately excited about Waechter. Good-Jones was such an early offer I imagine PR like what he sees.

    6'6" and also a bball player. I know DE is always in bigger demand, but tight end ability? Marcus Pollard and Tony Gonzalez were both bballers IIRC. Just a thought.

    I don't actually. Seems to start lower and end up around a class of 18-22 every year. I guess I could see Iowa going after one more. I think if we do it is a matter of getting David Edwards of Illinois to commit.

    Yea, it'll be a nice get... Maybe 3 years until he's ready to play, but with that size, he'll be able to batt down balls in the pass happy Big12.

    Iowa went WR heavy in 2013 and in 2014 they had a smaller class, but still missed out on some OT prospects. I don't think they're done on OL and may even pick up a couple more. If Waechter does come out as fully committed, that will make him the 3rd OL commit, since Newborg likely will be a DT. I wouldnt be surprised to see Iowa take 2 DTs and 6 OL guys and a couple DEs for a total of 10 linemen.

    Paulson- Iowa
    Cook- Iowa
    Meeker- Iowa State
    Nelson- Iowa State
    Nerness- ISU offer
    Good-Jones- ISU offer

    I imagine Waechter and some hidden kids like the Tanner Millers and Parker Hesse's of the world get offers somewhere.

    Iowa is a very underatted state when it comes to football talent imo
    Doesn't the Urbandale kid have an offer too?

    He's 2016 I believe but could drop early. ISU fan if I recall so it could be a Lazard type of deal. I think he will have a recruiting profile similar to Campos by the time he's done.


    It's all snark from here on out

So he's an inch or two shorter, but has a lot more weight on him. 4.9 is decent, but not great speed coming off the edge as a DE. Often times kids with that kind of height take some time to grow into their body. He certainly has plenty of time to improve. With his frame I would imagine it will be a good two or three years before he's expected to contribute.

    Here are some comparable 40 times coming out of high school (all these guys are a bit different in styles of play):

    Nate Meier: 4.6
    Mitchell Meyers: 4.63
    Drew Ott: 4.8
    Mike Hardy: 5.0

    *Couldn't easily find a 40 time for Morrissey. I would imagine his is pretty fast because of his frame.

    None of these guys have Nelson's height though. That's a unique weapon in itself given his ability to knock down or deflect passes. JJ Watt has shown how big of an impact that can have.

    I think you're investing a bit too much in a listed speed from a recruiting site.

    Generally those numbers (as with height and weight) are only even reasonably accurate when a kid has been to an accredited combine, like when Lazard went to the special camps last summer--or, when Bobby McMillen went to the Rivals camp in Chicago--and was suddenly listed at 6'1" 211. I'd take those numbers as pretty accurate. Don't know if he has a 40 time from that, though.




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

    Who knew?

    I don't know that Valley has any D1 talent in this year's SR class but they have a jr to be OL with a reported Oklahoma offer
    That's cool about max morris. Real good player. Kramme is a kid that I would want, super fast with good size.
    There are a couple at VHS with potential but I doubt if they get offers. Zach Downs is a linebacker, 6'0"-6'1" probably 200-210. Tore his ACL last year but before that he ran like a 4.60 at ISU camp. I could see him getting a look.
