He liked the coaches from ISU we were lucky enough to be down in Florida when he said he wanted to transfer. He like the offense we ran up here because the back could get 25 carries in a game. Now that we have a new offense i hurt him but i'm sure he'll be fine. And yes 4 star out of florida.
I was curious of the circumstances of how BO Williams found his way to ISU from Florida.
Wasn't he very highly touted coming out of HS? Who were his suitors via leaving Florida? Was it simply the Chizik connection?
I seem to recall he had 18 offers from colleges when he decided to transfer. I don't know how many he had right out of high school.
And let's not forget that Bo was penciled in to be the Florida starter (was listed No. 1 on the spring depth chart) but was injured in spring practice and redshirted. After spending time on the sidelines and watching Tebow get the majority of the carries (more than 2-1 over the next busiest ball carrier) he decided to transfer to a team that utilized the RBs more.
Right now, ARob is showing to be a much better feature back - but maybe Bo just hasn't found his calling or motivation yet. He has some raw talents, he just hasn't shown them a whole lot from what I've seen/heard.
A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.
Sometimes it is the people who no one imagines anything of who do the things that no one can imagine.
i noted bo was unhappy at florida and i got ahold of chizik and asked him to get after him. that is one of the few things chizik did right as a coach at iowa state. that is the story on how bo came to iowa state. tebow was not giving him any handoffs and that was why bo wanted out of florida.
