    Fox Sporst Evaluation of ISU 08/09 FB Class

    Thought this was and interesting read, FYI

    The class is heavy on ... Future Big 12-caliber starters. Last year was about trying to improve right away by going the JUCO route just to get new bodies into the mix, but this year Gene Chizik and his staff went after top talents to build around, and they got a few. Snagging powerful RB Jeremiah Schwartz was a coup, QB Jerome Tiller has the potential to become a major player, and receivers Sedrick Johnson and Jason Carlson will start sooner than later. Chizik has his ends and corners to develop in Jake McDonough and Chase Harper up front and Ter'Ran Benton and Leonard Johnson in the secondary.
    The player who'll someday be a really big deal ... WR Sedrick Johnson
    The player you might care about this year ... WR Jason Carlson What it all means to the real world of college football ... Iowa State became competitive as last year went on, and now the talent-level is undergoing an upgrade. Don't expect major changes right away, the Cyclones aren't winning the Big 12 title any time soon, but Chizik wasn't afraid to play a few true freshmen in key spots last year and won't hesitate to unleash some of the new talent this year. The overall rating might not be high, but this was a nice class.

    i think that's decently accurate - especially with how 'bad' the media has made this class of ours out to be

    That was about as good of an evaluation of our class as I have seen.

    I hope Sedrick read this that he is expected to be the real deal with us!

    That was the best one I have read so far. Cotlar had some dude on that only knew one guy on our incoming class and that was Darius Darks. He just kind of shrugged off SJ like he knew of him, but had nothing to say about him.

    Nice analysis. Obviously doesn't know that Harper will be playing tight end...
