    Re: Cyclones Land New Commitment!!!

    Sounds like a decent player. I always like it when we can sign guys who are targeted by Iowa as well.

    Re: Cyclones Land New Commitment!!!

    It will be a couple years before he contributes, but should fit well if we still utilize the H-back position. Rush end could be a possibility as well.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    Re: Cyclones Land New Commitment!!!

    I was just writing about this kid.....

    This is a great get in my mind.....

    6'-3" 210 lbs and runs 4.57 this kid is a player - reminds me a lot of Chad Greenway very instinctive player - if ever the term diamond in the rough - this kid is it. Only a 2* by rivals but i think he is a real good commit.

    Great job Coach Rhoads.....

    Re: Cyclones Land New Commitment!!!

    I played football at Waukee this year, then I transfered once it was over. But I knew jake and he was a cool guy. He played fullback/wide reciever and weak side linebacker on defense. His 40 time is legit. If he bulks up a bit he will be a great linebacker. Great hands also

    I think Iowa was looking to offer a greyshirt or preferred walkon with him. I know KF went and watched him play recently.

    Also will be interesting to see if this results in Iowa offering at this point.

    Re: Cyclones Land New Commitment!!!

    When signing day comes in less than a month, everyone on this board and PR is going to say all the right things about this class. People are going to tout it as a bunch of "diamonds in the rough," and get a false sense of enthusiasm about the class. But really, what makes our 2* players the diamonds, but other teams' 2* players just the rough, other than just blind faith? Everyone seems to like our new coaching staff, but I don't see it as head-and-shoulders above anyone else's

    The fact of the matter is that we have only 3 verbals from high school recruits that have any offers from other BCS-conference schools: White, Boffeli, and Beshears.

    I do realize that Chizik and the coaching change contributed greatly to our position, but in my opinion, unless things vastly improve on the recruiting trail, we are going to be creating a false sense of excitement when touting this recruiting class come National Signing Day.

    I hope I'm wrong, but so far I don't see a whole lot to be excited about in this class so far.

    A 4.57 40...thats pretty quick for a backer. Sounds like a pretty solid commit. Good work PR.

    Welcome to the Cyclones, Jake!

    So, what's the "great" news? I'm still looking for that part.

    That claimed 4.57 40 time is questionable, at best. It's not a combine time, and if he was really that big and that fast, we wouldn't be getting him over North Dakota and Wyoming. Not so long ago, a high school kid from Cresco named Kyle Slifka claimed to be the same size and speed. He walked on at ISU, you decide how that turned out.

    You have a point, but football is a lot more than just size and speed. If it were, guys like this - Ronnie Wingo Jr. - Football Recruiting - would be top 5 recruits nationally. (6'3" 220lb and a national champion in the 200m)

    However, you're right in the fact that I'm not sure a 200lb linebacker from Waukee, ranked 9th in the state and with Army as his next best offer, is really going to materially help us. Again, I hope I'm wrong.

    Waukee isn't exactly invisible, not some tiny little eight man school. If he were any good, Iowa wouldn't be going to the East Coast for two star linebacker recruits; and Kansas and Nebraska would be offering. Hardly like he's a hidden gem.
