    Jake Knott

    anyone else noticed that when this past class is discussed, Jake Knott is always the first discussed? I noticed this when watching the cyclones.com piece with Fountain and Ash, and everytime I hear Coach Rhoads talk about recruiting, he is always the most talked about. My theory is that coach is trying to win fast approval from Iowa high school coaches with all of the talk. Don't get me wrong, hope he is the greatest LB/DE in ISU history, just don't understand how so many other BCS missed missed on him.

    Re: Jake Knott

    I think they are just trying to sell us on good, wholesome, local kids that are gonna work their arses off. I think they want to make that a staple in their recruiting.

    Re: Jake Knott

    I had same thoughts, if that's the case they really made it too obvious, should talk about other Iowa boys.

    Re: Jake Knott

    Rhoads is on record as saying he wants 1/3 to 1/4 of each recruiting class to be Iowans. If he's going to pull that off, he's going to need the high school coaches on his side. In some of Mac's best years we were getting 5-6 of the top 10 players in the state, but between Iowa and Nebraska, we're always going to have a tough time cleaning up all of the talent in state. If we're taking 7-8 Iowa kids a year, we've just got to hope that the staff picks the right under the radar guys.

    I think they hit the nail on the head with the walk-ons. Hatfield and Woody will not be outworked. Both will find their way on the field, if not on D then o Sp teams.

    Yes, in the games I saw the guy is everywhere. He finds the ball and gets to the ball.

    Best high school player in the CIML. Doesn't have the upside of Barrent but is a very good player

    Re: Jake Knott

    My observation is the same. Pretty obvious what they are trying to do by always mentioning Jake if you ask me.

    I think Jake will be a good, tough player for us, but I doubt he sets the world on fire.

    I really hope that is purely PC Coach Speak. This is a flawed approach to winning Big 12 titles in my opinion. If they are legit BCS, D1, Big 12 caliber, then fine. If not who cares and don't waste time and resources filling spots with Iowa kids that should be playing at Wartburg.

    Re: Jake Knott

    I liked Knott's videos better than Marry's. I've been saying for months that I couldn't believe no one had offered this kid.

    What is so great about the upside of Barrent? I am sorry but I see more of an upside to Knott, 6'2" 230, 4.5 40, more size coming in then a lot of ISU great DE(Morrhead, Berryman Parker), with the same athletism, don't get me wrong, I think Barrent will probably be in the NFL some day with his size and athletism for his size but I don't see as much of an upside....

    I'm sure CPR doesn't mean it literally. Chiz did such a poor job of reaching out to Iowa HS school coaches and showing interest in Iowa kids that CPR is just trying to rebuild those bridges.

    Re: Jake Knott

    I really don't think it's just coachspeak about Iowa kids when it comes to Knott. I asked PR about him after yesterday's lunch with no media around and he flat out said Knott could become one of the best players in this class. I only saw Knott play once but he was dominant against a very good Ankeny team. The kid is big, fast and tough, and I can't wait to see him in a Cyclone uniform.

    Re: Jake Knott

    I am good friends with the Waukee LB coach and told me that Knott is a FREAK! He is a stud LB, a great athlete, and one of the hardest working kids that you will ever come around. On top of that he is an Iowa kid. Put kids like that at ISU and we will turn this program around.
