    New Commitment

    According to Rivals, we got a commitment from Aaron Moore a OL (Center) ranked as a 3* commit today. I havent seen anything on this, has this been posted somewhere else today???

    Very highly rated center which is a good position to recruit in lieu of Knapp being a senior.

    Aaron Moore - Football Recruiting

    Had a lot of other offers including Kansas, Auburn, Okie St, Baylor, Purdue, Colorado and Utah. Thats a lot of good programs after you......thats no fluke - this kid can play!!!!

    Fountain does it again.....where would this class be without retaining fountain and getting Ash. Awesome job!!!!!!

    According to Rivals, that should put us at 20 commits because they still do not have Bellamy (soft commit) and one other thats slipping my mind right now.

    We should be down to two or three schollies left....

    Can anyone say - Henderson, Mars and Martin would be a great close to a recruiting year!!!!

    I agree, and he came in at a worse time than Chizik. I'd take any or all of the three, but have we given up on Marry?

    Re: New Commitment

    I agree this class could turn out surprisingly well, especially if the last 3 or 4 turn out to be the likes of those mentioned.

    However, I am not defending Chizik in saying this, but I think the 2008 class will be one of the best of recent memory. The only truthful statement I recall him making during his exit was that he left a lot of good players in Ames.

    Gotta agree - based on the impact of the freshmen. Curious to see what the OLs turn into over the next year.

    Re: New Commitment

    After reading the ESPN recruiting information on him - i'm really pullin for this kid to explode.....

    It appears that Auburn had offered him a scholarship and he'd accepted. Then after the snake was hired he decided to go and pull the schollie and instead offer a grayshirt. This young man didnt much care for that, especially when your being contacted by other schools anyways, and so in steps ISU and he accepts the schollie right away without a visit.....

    Now, if this kid explodes and goes on to be a all big12 performer it will again show why were better without that sleezeball that turned his back on this team, these kids and now this recruit. I love it, aaron will probably come in with a bit of a chip on his shoulder, redshirt a year and then be ready to start for 4 years at center. However, on ESPN because of his quickness they indicated his natural position might be tackle and they had him rated as the 43 best tackle in america. Not bad for someone that chizlick didnt want to offer up a schollie!!!!!

    Great job Coach Rhoads and again Scott Fountain!!!!!

    Re: New Commitment

    He definately looks like a step up from the de-committ we had at center back in December. I believe his name was Wempa, he only had 1 other offer and that was UTEP so it's nice to see the staff replace him with a more highly touted recruit. Welcome aboard Aaron

    You gotta like the numbers on this kid. Just what we need. One or two more like him and we have the best class in years.

    Exactly how many schollies do we have to offer this year? If my research is correct we currently have 21 commits, them being:

    David Sims DB/S
    Zack Spears OL
    Darius Reynolds ATH
    Joshua Bellamy WR
    Aaron Moore OL
    Beau Blankenship RB
    Donnie Jennert WR
    A.J. Klein LB
    Kyle Lichtenberg OL
    James White RB
    Princeton Jackson LB
    Jake Knott LB
    Walter Woods DT
    Brandom Mims ATh
    Jansen Watson DB/S
    Deon Broomfield DB
    Josh Lenz WR
    Jacques Washington DB
    Jeremy Reeves DB
    Willie Scott LB
    Taylor Martin DE

    If we could add Mars, Henderson, and Marry that would put us at 24. Those 3 are huge gets if you ask me. Can't forget about Dearco Nolan either, even tho we took a huge hit with the coaching loss.
