    Instate recruiting

    I posted this a while back (July maybe?) and I continue to believe this. We NEED to pick up our instate recruiting. If yesterday was obvious enough, we need to compete for the instate talent.

    Has anyone heard anything on James Kohler or Andre Dawson?

    Re: Instate recruiting

    Why? Why not go get out of state talent? There really isnt that much talent in this state.

    Re: Instate recruiting

    I have only seen one high school game so far this year, and it was Linn-Mar remember though they are 3-0. Linn-Mar has two guys I think we need to get on, one is a running back with great vision and a good deal of speed. The other is a defensive back that fly's around the field making plays, he might even lead the team in tackles...as a sophomore.

    As other posters have pointed out, theres actually a fair amount of talent in Iowa. Not as deep as Texas,California,Florida or Ohio(which is another place I would like to see us recruit). However there are plenty of examples on Iowas AND Uni's rosters.

    Re: Instate recruiting

    We need the best talent we can get, regardless of where they are from. I'd like to see us get in on more Minnesota kids - they seem to produce pretty decent talent, their only D1 university isn't that good at football, and their already used to the weather.

    Iowa St. is not in the running for Dawson. And are likely trailing Stanford for the services of Kohler.

    This is not what Dawson said in a recent Rivals update.

    Re: Instate recruiting

    There is enough talent in state, to groom them for 3 years and have them be very productive for 2 years.
