I used to talk to him multiple times a week about recruiting during football season, and not once did his girl friend come up. Saying he went to Iowa State because of his girlfriend is disrespectful to him and Iowa State.
    I'm not saying it's the case in this situation, but guys rarely admit they are following their girlfriend to college...especially when they are athletes being recruited elsewhere.

    Re: Chances of landing Raridon

    Is this guy a brother or relative of the Raridon that went to Wisconsin?

    I'm aware but that's not how Cliff rolls really. His dad teaches at Iowa State. He's always just planned on going there.

    Oh so he gets free tuition then and doesn't need a scholarship, makes sense.

    He pretty much had it down to Nebraska, Oklahoma, and Iowa in the last few months. ISU was never even seriously considered.

    Re: Chances of landing Raridon

    Shocked this is getting zero attention. The best recruit in the state and maybe the best in state OL recruit in years commits to Nebraska and nobody is talking about it? Strange...

    Iirc, ISU was not in the running nor were we for the older brother. They're not interested in us and we're not interested in them. Matt Farniok on the other hand...

    This is false. Raridon unofficially visited ISU multiple times, had a good relationship with the coaches and had good things to say about ISU. I'm not saying him going elsewhere is a big shock, it's not, but to say there was no relationship (a good one at that) is totally false.

    I could think of a lot worse schools he could choose, like Iowa or any other Big 12 team.
