    Defensive Impact Player.....one on the horizon....

    As we've all been asking for some time is to get some playmakers regardless of side of the ball....

    There's hope - if in fact David Bedford does make an official visit - we better be selling the fact he could step in and start day one. To a juco - nothing better then playing time....the clocks runnin....

    Losing Mo Gray and C. Graham we've lost out on two playmakers....i hope they're able to sell bedford - he had 14 sacks last year...ISU as a team had 20. Not to mention a force like him off the edge will change the 113 ranking in pass defense because the pressure will not allow the time to sit back and pick which one of the receivers is open for the biggest gains. Get him and Black on the same side you have two powerful, aggressive guys, we would have a push that would cause havoc......

    Get'em Chiz - i know we would rather have HS players - but, you have to recognize the talent level and what that player would bring to the table. I'm not content with any of our existing nor any of our recruits that they will make an impact at DE this year. We need immediate help to turn things around on the D......

    I would love to have Bedford if he graduates this summer.

    Re: Defensive Impact Player.....one on the horizon....

    I think the big thing will be if he's able to get it done academically. It would be great if he could come here with 3 years to play. It's nice that we are his last visit so we can have the final opportunity to show him the best place for him to play and play right away. Come on Gene, get this guy!

    Bedford would be nice as I think that he has three years left of schooling. With that said, the guy needs to get his grades in order.

    Re: Defensive Impact Player.....one on the horizon....

    it sounds like its down to us and USF for david, but right know Cyclonenation has bedford as verbal to USF but Cyclone report still has him undecided. in my experience i trust CR more than CN and they update things more recently, but still it would be a huge pick up to get him, and huge loss to miss out on this impact DE

    Cyclone Report has Bedford as a solid verbal to South Florida now as well. Looks like we missed out on another one.

    I think Bedford was vastly overrated. I was going to write this before I learned he had committed. Watch his videos, you might change your tune on him. He gets some sack, but is terrible against the run. I don't necessarily know that he could beat out Lyle.

    No offense, but didn't you just recently call someone else out for ripping on a recruit. I believe she called a BB recruit "horrible". You're calling a FB recruit "vastly overrated". So will you be calling yourself out now?

    There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life:
    The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves Orcs. ~ John Rogers

    Chiz wanted him, and I trust his evaluation skills better than my own.

    Re: Defensive Impact Player.....one on the horizon....

    He'll probably commit to us and then not be able to get the grades. That's the way this recruiting year is going so far.

    Re: Defensive Impact Player.....one on the horizon....

    First off, there is a difference IMO, between calling a kid horrible and vastly overrated. Secondly, Bedford isn't even coming to ISU, he is committed to USF. Thirdly, the kid she called horrible was not a recruit, he was an ISU commit.

    Completely different circumstances.

    Don't get me wrong, he would have been a good get. I don't know that he would have been a huge difference maker. He could have been a good player, but I don't think he would have been great.
