    Looks like a real bruiser. Really thick with some power at the point of contact.

    It sounds like he really fell in love with Iowa State, which is great to hear.

    Welcome, Beau!

    Re: New Football Commit!!!

    He's a legit 5'8" and 205-210 lbs RB that runs a legit sub 4.5 40. Good stuff indeed.

    It Comes from Iowa and Devastates Evanston Town'

    I really like the shorter thick guys. They're hard for the defense to see and have a tendency to kick out the taller defensive players at point of impact.

    I think "Bowling Ball" is a good name for a guy of his stature. Best. Nickname. Evah!

    Don't want to get this thread off topic too far but what happened to Josh Johnson. He was a good ball carrier out of Oklahoma

    Chzik gave him the boot not to long after he got here. He was one of the players that found a purse on Cy-Ride, took the money out of it, and left it.

    Re: New Football Commit!!!

    That's great! I see he picked the Nebraska game for his official visit - good choice! Hopefully they can convince Money to come for that one as well.


    Never argue with an idiot. They will bring you down to their level and then beat you with experience.
