    Recruiting impact

    Perhaps the most significant outcome last night was the impact on recruiting. I see we picked up a pretty solid looking 3* OL who had a good list of offers. It's wonderful to see the impact that obviously superior coaching can have on recruiting. Now if we can just land a couple of DLs.

    Re: Recruiting impact

    Sad truth is we are going to have to take some chances on the DL prospects and hope we can develop them into great players. The kid in Ankeny is a prime example.

    We NEED to land some pretty decent D-Lineman. Our D-Line has to be the worst in the Big 12.

    The DL

    The coaching staff did a great job last night with the defense unit. I have been pretty consistent saying we need to bring in 3-4 JUCO DL and 3-4 HS DL prospects this fall.

    I still think we need the numbers, but after seeing our play the last couple weeks, the staff may feel our best hope is to develop the kids on campus. IMO it still makes sense to bring in a couple JUCO kids- I'd love a 300+lb run stopper and a strong side DE in the 260/270lb range.

    Bailey Johnson moving to NG seemed like a great move- he's quicker than Nate and his quickness will give the center something to think about. If Ruempolhamer and Alburitis hit the weight room hard in the off season they could be solid on the interior. Add to that Mansfield, Black and Laing. The later 2 might be in the dog house, but I hope they can have an impact with a strong off season. I also like the idea of Mansfield (a former wrestler) in the middle. If he can get up to the 270/280 range- he might be a solid interior player.

    That would give another year for McDonough, Moore and Woods to develop and contribute big minutes in 2011.

    Re: Recruiting impact

    Anybody have the complete list of who visited this past weekend? Based on what I've heard/read, the recruits were all pretty impressed with what they saw.

    Re: Recruiting impact

    Maggitt was running around the Baylor LT everyplay to end that game. I still think he could end up being a very good DE

    No doubt this was a big weekend for our recruiting. We clearly got one commitment but we also impressed the others that were here. We had 8 official visitors all of which we are really big on. In my eyes the two biggest visitors were Jeremiah George and Floyd Mattison both linebackers. Here's some links...if we land both of these guys consider it huge.

    I would love to see us close the deal with those two. They would definitely improve the team's speed.

    To reflect though, lets look at our DC and consider his past Development projects:

    This is what he started with...

    This is what he is now....

    To me, our staff is in place and i feel more then comfortable when i hear someone say "We have to develop players" i could not make that same statement a year ago.....

    Re: Recruiting impact

    Do they let these guys ride w/ the team to the stadium? I assume these are the guys that got out of the buses for the spirit walk. A very athletic looking group that had some type of pass hanging around their necks. Very impressive from the curb anyway.

    Re: Recruiting impact

    I know this has been talked about many times on here but do we realistically have a player that could switch from OL to DL??? Somebody that is currently on the roster, not a potential recruit.
