    L.J. Gamblin-West Des Moines

    Some Hawk blogs are saying Gamblin might be coming to Iowa State with either an offer or as a walk on. He's 215 lb linebacker from West DM. Played in the prep bowl and looks like a hard hitter. Anyone hear anything?

    Re: L.J. Gamblin-West Des Moines

    it was reported a few weeks ago that we did offer and that he verballed, but then that story was retracted. if he does walkon, i think that would be great, but i would think he would get a few d1 sholly offers and that would be tough to pass up.

    He's two stars on rivals, one on scout. I've seen video, he looks quick to the ball and tough to me. A big linebacker.

    Re: L.J. Gamblin-West Des Moines

    Hawk fans seem to think he'll be a Clone, but is that cause they think they can do better? Hopefully his character is a lil better than his former teammate in Jordan Bernstein.

    Re: L.J. Gamblin-West Des Moines

    Still think he will be a Clone. I think it is a matter of whether he gets a scholarship.

    Re: L.J. Gamblin-West Des Moines

    I hope we don't have to watch walk-ons be our standout players. In D1 football you should have a star player that is a walk-on once every 5 years. i.e. Blyth...I think Chizk can see talent much better then DM could and I think he will get nothing but scholarship type players and not walk-ons.

    Re: L.J. Gamblin-West Des Moines

    I think your argument would have been better had you referred to a success story like Jordan Carstens - the only "great" ISU walk-on that I can think of.


    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?

    For the record...Blythe was NOT a walk-on.

    He signed with ISU with interest from Iowa, Wisconsin, and Kansas State.

    Jordan Carstens, Lane Danielson, we can't count on walk-ons becoming superstars though.
