    Question for people familiar with Iowa JUCO football

    Hey everyone

    I am a TCU fan, but i read this forum because I used to live in Ames and Iowa State is the team I follow in the Big 12. I have not posted, but now that TCU has picked up a commitment from a kid that played at NIACC I was wondering if any Cyclone fans had seen him play this year.

    The kids name is Marques Parker and he is listed as a WR in rivals, but from what I understand he played WR/RB/DB and returned kicks for NIACC. If anyone has seen this kid play, I would like your thoughts on his ability.

    His only other offers were from Ohio and Northern Iowa, so Iowa State and Iowa were not that interested.

    I went to NIACC last year and Parker is a heck of an athlete. I don't know much about TCU so I don't know if he will play or not, but he is a great athlete. He also seemed like a pretty good guy from when I talked to him.

    Iowa State is not building with JUCOs. Head Coach Gene Chizik prefers high school players with 4 years, or JUCO's that have a full three to play.

    NIACC is not exactly a football powerhouse for the JUCO's in Iowa. Iowa Central is alot more notable for that. That being said, I did not see them play. I am from up around that area and I know there was not alot of "hype" around the football program. I hope he works out for you.
