    Defensive Tackle Recruits

    Went on CR and looked at the database of DT recruits.
    A bunch of guys previously on the list are not there any more. Only one DT recruit is listed, Kasey Smith. So either we are done recruiting DT's or something else is up. I was really hoping for a big run stuffer. Perhaps Chizik is having CR pull the plug so that any potential DT recruits won't be recognized by rival schools and gone after.

    Does Chizik have that kind of pull with Paul?

    I don't believe Chizik would ask someone not to report something. Doesn't seem his style. He does his job and they do theirs.

    Re: Defensive Tackle Recruits

    A couple weeks ago, my son-in-law was playing blackjack next to Chizik. He was really impressed with Chizik. Said he was funny and seemed like a great guy. Chizik had a couple beers while he played. I think our program is in great hands.

    Re: Defensive Tackle Recruits

    Are the recruits all at the casino? Or do our coaches go only during the dead period?

    Pollard should auction off a night like that on Cyclones.com. Who wouldnt pay to do that?

    Re: Defensive Tackle Recruits

    Does anyone know anything about James Moore? He would be a good get at 270. Rivals lists him as the 60th best strongside DE with ISU, Minnesota, Indiana and Missouri State recruiting him. One of the few 3 stars left that we are still recruiting.

    Re: Defensive Tackle Recruits

    FYI - If and its an IF, ADRIN HAUGHTON will not be on the OL, i think he's our stud DT that everyones looking for.....he was OL,DL and i think with the other OL recruits, he just don't fit the mold of what our OL recruits have been.

    I see A-D jackin some people up from the middle.......He gets in and under Shep, could be awakening a giant......

    Love to see big, athletic DT - seem to engage, shed and cause discomfort to any qb that cannot step up in the pocket because its closing from the inside out.....

    Can't wait to see him in the new duds......

    Really? I think he's similar to Osemele and Baysinger--and more than a little like Stephens and Tibbs. Plus, remember that 5.32 40 time was a combine time, not a "claimed" time.

    With ends growing into tackles, and the youngsters moving up, we might be okay at defensive tackle for now.

    I'm more worried about a rush end--losing Marshall hurt.

    Re: Defensive Tackle Recruits

    The reason the number went down was Paul 'thinned out' the database to reflect who ISU is really in on. I don't think he would mind me passing this info along.

    I totally agree here. I feel like there has to be somebody (Bailey Johnson, Tate, Weir, Frere) that can do a good job in the middle. Robertson, McDonough, or Guillory wouldn't surprise me to move inside, and I think they could all do well on the end with Hammerschmidt. I just don't know where a Berryman-esque pass rusher will come from. I think we have a lot of guys that can be solid and good run defenders, I just don't see a pass rusher.

    Re: Defensive Tackle Recruits

    I have some hope that Chris Lyle can step up. It seems like JUCO's have difficulty adjusting their first year. Hopefully with a year in the program and weight room he can give us a consistent pass rush, with Parker spelling him. Lyle definitely has the build for it, but he needs to recognize his potential. It would seem that the staff agrees as we are not heavily pursuing a JUCO rush end.
