    Bell and Bibbs

    Seems like there commitments are not really commitments and more like they will come here if they don't like another college better. Are there any other kids that are wavering on there commits to ISU?

    Maybe I have been an ISU fan too long, but that is how I feel about all the verbals. There is a lot going on right now with coaches trying to steal that last couple of recruits to fill out the class. At least GC is one of the guys out chasing until the final gun. Hopefully he will "steal" more than loose.

    Re: Bell and Bibbs

    I have read stories you may be refering to and I can't say I agree with your characterization and haven't heard or read anything current on Bell.

    However, isn't in essence that what every choice is? If we are expecting all recruits to say I will come to ISU no matter what other schools offer me we are not being realistic. Expecting kids who didn't grow up as die hard Cyclones to have ISU as their number 1 school no matter who comes calling isn't realistic.

    Bibbs

    Hope we don't lose him to WVU!

    Just read on the WVU rivals message board that he committed to WVU over the weekend. Looks like he may be one of the disappointments.

    Bell's Facebook picture is of him in an Iowa State number 13 jersey. I think that's a pretty good indicator.

    Is there a benefit to tracking planes for tomorrow too?

    Re: Bell and Bibbs

    It's not set in stone, but usually this type of chatter is accurate. I don't expect to get Bibbs.

    Hope I'm wrong.

    Re: Bell and Bibbs

    Who knows - Bibbs may be a contingency plan for WVU as they already have 26 commits according to Rivals. It appears immediate playing time would be more available with ISU, but if he goes to WVU and does not get caught in a numbers game (15 returning LB's), I wouldn't blame him for a choice to play for a team that has a shot at the National Championship next year with White and Slaton.

    That being said, however, WVU's base defense is a 3-4 or 3-3-5 and I don't think his size is best for that type of system. I think he is better suited for the 4-3 where he won't be having to take on O-linemen one-on-one consistently. Hopefully he makes the choice that is best for his skill set.

    Re: Bell and Bibbs

    Not to give more than what its free to see on CR (because I pay for premium info), but there's nothing more than an official visit this past weekend right now and that he's a wavering commit, but the only verbal out there right now is his to ISU. Everything else is speculation until sometime tomorrow morning!!!
    Here's hoping for the best!
