    Signing Day Surprises?

    One of the funnest and most exciting experiences in my time on CF happened last year when a rumor, that Sedrick Johnson was decommitting from A&M to sign with the Cyclones, happened last Signing Day. People tuned in throughout the day as the rumor was initially reported, then Sed apparently wrangled with first one parent, then another to get a signature on his LOI. It was a story too good to be true, and lingered on for hours, with myriad hopeful and disbelieving posts as the tale progressed.

    Now, I can't really see a parallel for this year (Dyron Dye?), because that's the nature of surprises, but I certainly would take Mike Marry and Larvez Mars choosing to sign at the last minute.

    Re: Signing Day Surprises?

    Mars and Marry would be an awesome ending to this year's class!! No doubt about it.

    On a side note, regarding the commitment from Blanton, he might not be a fall-back recruit for only Lang, but possibly also a fall-back for Joshua Bellamy (who is down to Wash State and ISU per scout). He's a 'soft verbal' to ISU on Rivals, but it seems 50/50 for him now.

    Let's hope we can keep Bellamy, pick up Mars, and pick up Marry.

    That would be extrememly nice!!

    Re: Signing Day Surprises?

    I don't expect both. Both would be great, but I would expect to only get one of them. That would leave us with 24. I think the 25th might be used on an Iowa guy, who knows.

    that is true, that was some fun stuff. I really hope he turns into a super guy for us in our offense in the future. I wonder what kind of stats this website did that day.

    Re: Signing Day Surprises?

    I would love another day like that, was one of the most entertaining days ever. A close second in entertainment was the Money is going to commit tonight thread, but that was for different reasons!

    Re: Signing Day Surprises?

    So, when I announce on Wednesday that I am resigning the recently taken position as Waldorf's DC to move back to Ames...would that count as a signing day surprise?

    Re: Signing Day Surprises?

    I think out biggest competition for Marry (Ole Miss) got another committment from a LB today so they are up to 30. They are going to have to drop someone to take Marry now, I would imagine.

    And that LB was Joel Kight, an undersized linebacker (like Mars) who was on ISU's list at one time.

    Re: Signing Day Surprises?

    I can't believe that was almost a year ago! I don't know how many times I hit the refresh button, but I had to replace my mouse after that.

    It would be be fun to have that kind of hype again.
