    In state recruit verbals to NU

    http://iowastate.rivals.com/viewpros...p?pr_key=55645

    Dan Hoch ( about 6-7 285) from Harlan Community gave NU a verbal last Sunday. Hate to see in state preps go west.

    Re: In state recruit verbals to NU

    Definitely a bad sign. I hear Gene wants to get his staff set up, but if he does not land three recruits a week before signing period, he will be short of filling holes. Guess the staff will not have much time to celebrate XMAS. I would think you would have to get about 30-40 more people to visit Ames before Feb to fill the roster. Or maybe we will just have a small recruiting class.

    Nebraska is wrapping up recruiting this week per Omaha Weird Herald. They have 20-22 solid recruits. They did not tell the recruits about all their possible coaching switches till after Auburn game. Any Deep South boys coming in to visit? ISU had Germaine Love, the Garland Connection linebacker in and two others last week with one more Mississippi speedster this week. Really a lot of work to do in recruiting. Can you spell juco? Actually I thought recruiting would pick up a little bit, but it isd the holidays. Looks like our staff will have to spend XMAS touring the south to get recruits to visit. The Bernstine talk has also died down.From the free part of scout here is list of prospects:
    http://scout.scout.com/a.z?s=171&p=9&c=4&yr=2007. Very few deep south players.

    From the free part of rivals, here is a link to Todd Fitch and his recruits and resume:
    http://iowastate.rivals.com/viewcoac...rt=1&Year=2006
    Mike Brown of Brandon FL is also mentioned as 4.34 running back also.

    Looks like he could recruit South Carolina which is near Florida. Hmmm. The whole staff has south connections. How about the strength coaches?

    He is only a Jr. this year he still has another year of High School ball for the powerhouse Harlan.

    Too bad he is going to Nebraska, I'm sure that Iowa and ISU will continue to pursue the kid even though he says he is committed to NU. It would be nice to keep the kid instate regardless of where he goes.

    Re: In state recruit verbals to NU

    Bet he lives on a farm and throws bales twenty yards. By the time he graduates he could be bigger than the Famous EIU Robert, who is now injured for Oakland. Seems like most of the Hawk pro players were injured this year. Ladell Betts had the best year from the whole group. Seems like a large number of people were injured for Clones also.

    Old Recruits, Old News
    Oregon Beavers ended up with Jamaicah Bass, crushing runner, in Nov. Wednesday Larry Asante of Coffeyville will probably announce for Clemson. Looks like recruiting this year will be more difficult than we thought. Last year Prince picked up 25 recruits in less time for KSU. Can we do the same? Gary Chandler of Coffeyville went to KSU also. Not much left on the board except for jucos. Reminds me of our fills ins for the bball team to get through till next year. Barney Cotton helped with Bates.

    Good point...ISU and Iowa didn't have the best luck avoiding injuries in the NFL - nor in Ames/Iowa City. Injury bug for both all around.

    Re: In state recruit verbals to NU

    For Harlan being as dominant as they have for years in HS FB, I couldn't name one at a D-I school. Maybe I just don't hear about them in the Eastern part of the state....

    Re: In state recruit verbals to NU

    I would rather see a smaller recruiting class, than a big one that is thrown together for the sake of numbers. I don't think we will be able to judge much about the Chizic regime from this one.

    Re: In state recruit verbals to NU

    Only problem we have is rebuilding a dline of four more people and finding aboiut six more offensive linemen and two real running backs. That wioyuld take 10 of the slots if we could find them. Other than that we need probably about three safeties and three real cornerbacks. That takes me up to 16 players. One more tight end and a placekicker would make me feel safer. Yeah, taske the small calss, but I think we need to get some bosdies into camp. We were so thin and beat up last year, we no longer do not have the luxury of going with a small class. Get the recruits into camp and put the medal to the floor and test drive them. If they do not pan out, send them on to Troy, SFA, or some other linked schools. We cannot run the program with 70 scholarships. Just look at the problems Alabama had on probation.

    Re: In state recruit verbals to NU

    Do you guys know anything about this Hoch kid? He had an offer from ISU. People on the Nebraska boards are saying he will be the #1 recruit in Iowa next year and a probable 4*.

    Hoch is Nebraska's 3rd recruit for 2008 already. Nebraska will have 30 juniors graduating after next year so NU will be taking 25+ kids next year. Be careful when you load up on JUCOs this year like NU did 2 years ago. This is what can happen. NU will only have 80ish kids on scholarship in 2008.

    Re: In state recruit verbals to NU

    At this point we need bodies to fill when the injuries start occurring. We almost ran out of running backs. Our oline had no backups. Our dliner was tapped out for backups. The cupboard was so bare we needed to make a run to the Salvation Army. We probably had 30 scholarship[ players who could not contribute this year. we were almost down to the Dirty Thirty. With the sprained ankles, hamstrings, mono, flulike symptoms, turf toes, acls, and other household pests, we were on our last line of defense for Missouri. Almost put the waterboy into cover the receivers. Barney almost put a helmet on.

    Re: In state recruit verbals to NU

    NCAA Football recruiting is entering the "Dead Zone". It is my understanding it started today or maybe next monday and goes into the first week of January. Couldn't get the exact dates from the NCAA website because their servers went down 12/17 for upgrading. In the dead time, NCAA Football coaches can't contact any recruits. This time of year it is very difficult to influence a recruit.

    Re: In state recruit verbals to NU

    So we can recruit again starting 8 Jan until 7 Feb. Four weeks for 17 more recruits. Looks like we better have a huge walkon program. Looks like five more our left on the ace rivals juco list that are interested in Clones. Looks like we can guarantee starting jobs for new oline recruits. Coaches can't get enough athletes. The more a player can do, the more valuable he is. In every recruiting class, there are prep football players who display the versatility to contribute in a number of ways at multiple positions, and coaches must decide what position they should focus on once they arrive on campus.

    When it comes to skill position players (QB, WR, DB, RB, etc.) who are candidates to play multiple positions, ball skills, speed and fluid movements are key components. All three of those traits are "must haves" at cornerback and wide receiver. The main reason players with great speed and moves end up on defense is because they lack the hands and ball skills to play offense. Most importantly, the one characteristic that all great athletes have is football instincts. A natural feel for the game can often compensate for a lack of physical prowess in one area or another. Instinctively knowing what to do or how to play or where to be is something that can sometimes be overlooked when scouts and coaches become enamored with physical tools. When you combine the physical tools with instincts, you have a natural football player or "athlete."

    Re: In state recruit verbals to NU

    Call it the storm before the calm.
    With plenty of official campus visits by prospects and home visits by coaches, at least 133 commitments that we know of have poured in since Saturday. It's all in anticipation of the "dead period," which begins Monday and forbids contact of any kind between coaches and recruits.
    Lasting until the first week of January, the dead period gives prospects and coaches a welcome break for the holidays. Until Monday, though, coaches are scrambling to get their classes as close to completion as possible before the final push toward national signing day on Feb. 7.
    So in the Santa spirit, here's a list I've checked twice of the notable commitments this week:

    Maxpreps/Gary Quetti
    Schools recruited D'Angelo McCray as both a defensive lineman and a tight end.



    • Illinois continued its surprising roll with this year's recruiting class, picking up five new commmitments this week. ESPN 150 TE/DT D'Angelo McCray (Jacksonville, Fla./Jackson) announced a verbal commitment on Thursday, becoming the third Illinois ESPN 150 verbal commit; all three are out-of-state prospects.
    No. 1 defensive end Martez Wilson, from in-state Chicago-Simeon, also is considering the Illini.
    • Offensive tackle Mark Wetterer (Cincinnati/Anderson) became the latest prospect to jump ship from Michigan State. A long-time commit, Wetterer switched to Louisville, citing the firing of John L. Smith as the reason for his change of heart.
    However, Michigan State did gain David Duran (Marietta, Ga./Kell), who followed Mark Dantonio from Cincinnati. Duran was one of seven verbal commitments Michigan State gained this week.
    • Among the four verbals Cal secured this week was running back Jahvid Best (Richmond, Calif./Salesian), one of the fastest players in the entire class.
    • Rich Rodriguez's decision to stay at West Virginia certainly had an effect, as the Mountaineers picked up six verbal commitments this week. Four of the six project as safeties or outside linebackers, including No. 19 safety Sidney Glover (Warren, Ohio/Harding) and No. 35 safety Evan Rodriguez (North Bergen, N.J.).
    • Wide receiver is a position of need at Miami, to say the least, and this week the Hurricanes added two for next year in Jermaine McKenzie (Bradenton, Fla./Bradenton Prep) and Leonard Hankerson (Ft. Lauderdale/St. Thomas Aquinas).
    • Pittsburgh added three players who could play running back next year in Shariff Harris (Bayonne, N.J./St. Peter's), Brandon Lindsey (Aliquippa, Pa.), who Scouts Inc. projects as an outside linebacker, and Tristan Roberts (Perkasie, Pa./Pennridge).
    • Notre Dame continued building on it's No. 1-ranked class by adding two ESPN 150 commits this week, athlete Golden Tate (Hendersonville, Tenn./Pope John Paul II), whom the Irish will use at either running back or receiver, and Ian Williams (Longwood, Fla./Lyman).
    • Right on Notre Dame's heels for the No. 1 class is USC, which secured another ESPN 150 commit in offensive lineman Kris O'Dowd (Tucson, Ariz./Salpointe Catholic). The Trojans beat out Arizona, UCLA and Ohio State, among others.
    • Mississippi State secured four verbals this week, three from junior college players. The lone high school commitment this week was from quarterback Wesley Carroll (Ft. Lauderdale/St. Thomas Aquinas).
    • UConn's quarterback competition for next year got a little more interesting when junior college All-American Tyler Lorenzen (San Marcos, Calif./Palomar) announced a verbal commitment.
    Lorenzen, a walk-on at Iowa State for two years before transferring to Palomar last season, has two years of eligibility remaining. He'll battle rising junior D.J. Hernandez, sophomore Dennis Brown and Class of '07 prospect Cody Endres (Washington, Pa./Trinity).
    • South Carolina picked up three more verbals, the best being from No. 22 defensive tackle Donte'e Nicholls (Pompano Beach, Fla./Ely). He's the eighth verbal from the state of Florida, compared to only three from South Carolina.
    • Four new players are headed to Washington, including No. 73 running back Curtis Shaw (Stockton, Calif./Lincoln). • Duke went the postgrad route this week, picking up four such players, including brothers Cameron Jones and Colin Jones (Greenwich, Conn./Mercersburg Academy)
