    Leonard Johnson

    update on Scout. No real news although he's tripping this weekend to either Mich or WVU. Claims he's confused. Says he's closest with our staff and Miss staff... Either he's playing with the media, or he really has no clue whats he's gonna do...Bunch of other stuff but don't want to further violate any premium information oaths....

    Re: Leonard Johnson

    His offer won't be pulled as it is believed that he let the staff know when his made his verbal that he would take other visits. Chizik probably sees him as more of a stong lean than a commit.

    Re: Leonard Johnson

    The staff new of this visit to WV (I think) and that is why he is probably only a soft verbal right now. His offer won't be pulled. Does anyone know if it is because he is only a soft verbal that he can take this trip without upsetting the staff, or did he have it planned before his verbal and told the staff he would take it?

    The speculation has been

    he was upfront about wanting to take other visits so Chiz took his conditional pledge to attend ISU...

    Re: Leonard Johnson

    They will not pull his offer b/c they knew he was planning on visiting other schools. If you are up front with the coaches they are more understanding. Obviously when you go behind their backs, they will be angry. As for Johnson, I still like our chances of hanging onto him. He is visiting WV this weekend (not Mich) and I like our chances to beat them out. Also he really likes Ole Miss but he didn't committ when he visited which I took to be a good sign

    Re: Leonard Johnson

    At this point in the cycle, it would be a big decision to switch given he knows he enjoys the ISU staff. My bet is he stays.

    Thats my gut hunch as well. There were some interviews with him earlier where he basically said keep the crap away from me and let me do my business... Maybe he's just doing the polite for all the reporters... or maybe he IS interested in bigger (but not better) things. I really want this kid -- seems like a truly decent kid on top of the fball skillz....

    Re: Leonard Johnson

    You'd think this level of fan interest would be flattering to a recruit, but overdoing it probably just creeps them out.

    Re: Leonard Johnson

    I really hope he comes to ISU. Leonard Johnson is my Dad's name. He is 88 years old and lives in Webster City. I would love to see his name mentioned every weekend this fall as having contributed to another Cyclone victory!

    If that's not a good enough reason for a kid to commit, I don't know what is...

    Re: Leonard Johnson

    Unlike some others I've seen menioned, he seems like a really good prospect. Good enough to have two threads, in fact. I'm surprised the mods haven't merged them.
