    Linebacker

    Kevin Hamlin Fr
    AJ Klein Fr
    Jake Knott Fr
    Jacob Lattimer Soph,
    Willie Scott Fr
    Grant Stonerook Fr
    Taufoou JR


    That is the list of returning returning LBs for next year. Not much experience to say the least.

    We have one commit so far. Has anyone heard how many LBs we will expect to sign?

    Re: Linebacker

    I would hope for 2. To me, the one we signed looks like a DE/outside linebacker. A hybrid player if you will. I look for us to sign a big LB prospect within the next 2 years. Hopefully we can sneak in and grab one this year.

    Re: Linebacker

    Need Klein and Knott, and maybe Jacob Lattimer to step up and be solid players, it really hurt losing Bell and Ferguson. Maybe get a JC or two that can step in and play.

    Re: Linebacker

    Think he's refering to losing Cameron Bell after last year. Transfered to Northern Illinois IIRC.

    I'm still excited about AJ Klein. Looks like a big 12 linebacker to me.

    Not sure what the situation is, but N IL did have a bye this past weekend. Probably just had a chance to get back to visit friends.

    I guess we'll all see if he made the right move to jump ship as a starting LB at ISU to play RB and Northern Illinois in week one of next year. The guy is a beast, something like 6'2'' 240#, but never really looked comfortable on D.

    Re: Linebacker

    Ernest Ferguson was a big loss IMO. Thought he had a lot of potential. Hope we get two solid Juco LB's and two more high school LB's like Knott and Klein.

    Re: Linebacker

    Cameron bell is currently not on the depth chart, maybe cause he's redshirt cause he transferred, but the fact he was wearing an Iowa State shirt was a little tacky...
