    Ben Cotton

    Link

    This guy is a 2008 prospect. But at 6'6" 200 lbs, the schools of intrest, AND being a part of the Ames Little Cyclones; this would be a great recruit to get: should get!

    I dont know if those are shools he is interested in, or those are schools that are intersted in him, but its an apealing list at that.

    Re: Ben Cotton

    I think he was committed to us, but once his dad was fired, he decommitted. I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure that's him...

    That's him. I doubt he would want to play for the school that fired his dad.

    Re: Ben Cotton

    anybody think it would have been bad/good for him to play for a team his dad was a coach on?

    If he did attend ISU, even after his dad had to find a new job bcuz of Mac's departure, I think that would say a lot about his character.

    Chances he comes to ISU... slim and none. Some other schools are interested but right now I think the Hawks are at the top of his list.

    Re: Ben Cotton

    Maybe Barney will get a job in Florida with McC or Skaldany. I hear Florida is not too bad a retirment place for football coaches in the off season. Hope Ben plays for the Clones. Look for Barney to go to Buffalo or Ohio also.

    He was a sophomore when he last played with Austin.

    Correct he did not play last year leg injury. Not certain of this but Finch, who is still on staff, may be the person recruiting him, I use to see him at games.

    Re: Ben Cotton

    If Ben wanted to develope as a player during his 4 or 5 years in college, he wouldn't want to play for his dad...

    Ben is actually a great kid. It was heart breaking to see him get hurt last year. I don't think we will see him suiting up for the clones though.
