    Recruiting - Reeves, Carpenter, Reynolds & Big Uglies...

    Now that we have a serious athlete in Reeves, if we could add Carpenter and Reynolds and then get two of the five big uglies on the DL between Gaines, Knight, Anyiam, and Bonsu AND SPENCE our class would really be taking shape. I would love to see either Marry or one more impact type player in the LB corp, but, we really need to get better on both lines. Carpenter would be a great get, hope he remembers who was paying him the love back in the day before he blew up, maybe just maybe loyalty means something to this kid.

    This class needs a couple of impact players on the defensive side of the ball, just as Chiz and staff signed last year. Keep adding 2-3 impact type players and in a year or two, those classes will gel into something special.

    Don't forget Akeem Spence on the DL.

    There's a whole lot more potential impact linemen out there than just five or six, some not on the radar yet, it's only October. And the ones we have aren't exactly Swiss cheese, they're just inexperienced.

    Carpenter would be a great get, hope he remembers who was paying him the love back in the day before he blew up, maybe just maybe loyalty means something to this kid.
    People keep saying things like that, but it's really facetious. Would you care to count how many ISU signees have been placed at a juco over the years, then not offered two (or three) years later? Loyalty works both ways.

    I would love to see either Marry or one more impact type player in the LB corp, but, we really need to get better on both lines.
    We desperately need someone like Marry. Not only because two seniors graduate at MLB, but because we desperately need to upgrade the position.

    Keep adding 2-3 impact type players and in a year or two, those classes will gel into something special.
    I would happily add more than 2-3 defensive impact players a year.

    I don't know where we stand with these guys, but I wouldn't mind getting another safety.

    Bradley Wallace - Football Recruiting
    Roderick Goodlow - Football Recruiting

    Scout has Goodlow listed at SS, and rivals at LB. Would be a good get for sure. Also Bradley Wallace is a QB in HS as well.

    I would love to get Goodlow to go with Marry and Klein. But we have to get him in for a visit first--he's being really popular.

    I would second that. I watched their highlight videos and was impressed. Both of them look really tall. Listed at 6'2" and 6'3". Not bad size for safeties.

    Give GC some talent, and I think we will be pleasantly surprised with the results. You gotta have the horses to run in the derby after all........

    Look no farther then Lawrence, they were about ready to run the stay puff marshmellow coach out of town before his recruiting classes took hold and are now established the level the program is striving for and recruiting has followed the success.

    Totally agree 100% we have to be patient, he keeps bringing in players like LJ, Benton, Johnson and Darks are successes will soon follow!!!!!
