    Re: Dom DeLira Commits

    Hopefully he won't be running as much under the new offensive scheme and just slinging the ball to his receivers from the pocket so his 40 time will be a non-issue

    Re: Dom DeLira Commits

    Looks to be more accurate than any of our current qbs. His location made it easy for his receivers.

    Re: Dom DeLira Commits

    He was very accurate on a very windy day when he visited and he'll be Mangino's QB. Redshirt him freshman year and see where things go from there. He went 12-2 last year at a Texas 5-A school. And Lake Travis has a history of producing some pretty decent QB's.

    Welcome Dom!

    DeLira ran a 4.66 40. That is not too bad. Bottom line is that he was extremely accurate in a really tough wind when he came to the ISU camp. Very impressive. He doesn't throw interceptions. And is extremely accurate. Can throw on the run going left or right. And he was Mangino's choice to get a scholarship offer at QB. Same high school as Todd Reesing.

    DeLira was not thought to be the favorite after Burrow committed to Ohio State. DeLira earned his schollie through performance. IMO, we have a very good one. And Mangino decided on him.

    It's June. This early most QBs will get one offer and commit unless they are a high 4 star type guy.

    Re: Dom DeLira Commits

    A thrown ball is always faster than a ran ball, just ask a baseball guy. In his highlight tape he didn't break the line of scrimmage once. It looks to me like Mangino is looking for a pass first type guy rather than the hybrid.

    Re: Dom DeLira Commits

    I don't care that he has no major offers nor am I worried about his size. Look at the tape. This kid looks the part more than most I've seen. He seems to see the field very well, even on the run he keeps his head down field. That was as a junior too so he's still got a year to develop before ever setting foot in Ames.

    As far as his size, you aren't fully grown as a junior in HS. 6'1 175 as a junior could be 6'3 200+ as a freshman in college. Put him on a weight program and he's the same size or bigger than our other QB's.

    Agreed. Plus he plays for one of the best high school programs in the country. Hope we can keep him.

    Re: Dom DeLira Commits

    I hope I look back on this post in a few years and shake my head - but I'm just not excited about this kid.

    I know there is more than Stars, and offers, but damn are we in need of a really good QB.

    Let's hope our staff can shape him into greatness.

    SMH.

    One of our best QB's of all time (Seneca) had little interest from other schools.
    One of our highest rated QB's coming in was Jerome Tiller.

    QB rankings don't mean too much unless your talking about some of the elite "can't miss" kind of recruits.

    Re: Dom DeLira Commits

    6 QB's for 2015? Hopefully they realize you only out one QB on the field every play.

    Seriously, you don't need 6 QB's.
