    Is CPR looking at a JC MLBer?

    It is pretty scarry how well Jesse Smith is playing and his graduation will leave a huge void in the middle. Is ISU looking for a JC to replace him or is there someone on the team waiting in the wings. I really can't remember Jesse being out of very many games this year. Who is his backup now?

    Derec Schmidgall is his backup and I think he's a senior also.

    Re: Is CPR looking at a JC MLBer?

    Focus in on AJ Klein and Jake Knott on special teams play. Between practice this Fall, Spring practice, and next years preseason practice, either of those two will be more than capable of taking over for Jesse Smith. IMO

    No doubt in my mind AJ Klein is the future for ISU. Some of his plays on special teams just gets me pumped to see him get some hardcore minutes next year.

    CPR has mentioned AJ Klein several times as an up-and-comer. He talked after some of the first fall practices that Klein has been a big surprise. I must say he's done very well in special teams this year.

    Re: Is CPR looking at a JC MLBer?

    All 3 of our LB's are seniors, what about the 3rd option after Klein & Knott since Raven, Garrin, & Smith graduate?

    Re: Is CPR looking at a JC MLBer?

    Tafouo(spelling?) and Lattimer are the JUCOs that you see playing with Klein and Knott. Both have played this year

    Has Taufoou played? I don't remember seeing him on the field at all, possibly redshirting him? I know Lattimer has been playing more lately but I think in more of a hybrid rush end/OLB role

    Probably one of the jucos this year, Lattimer or Taufoou.

    On his Monday call-in show earlier this month, CPR was asked about next year's linebacking. He mentioned five linebackers: Klein, Taufoou, Knott, Lattimer, and Hamlin. He implied the first three likely would enter spring drills atop the depth chart.

    Also this fall, CPR has said the staff will sign four linebackers in the upcoming recruiting class, and he also said the Cyclones will ink 6-8 JUCO players. I have not heard him breakdown JUCO wants by position.

    Re: Is CPR looking at a JC MLBer?

    He's got one in Hubert, hopefully he picks up George and Mattison and then one more and he is set at his goal for 4. None of the first three are JUCOs, which is good considering we have two in their now. He lost on Earls, but I think we can survive without him.

    Considering the amount of nickel we run, I think we'll be fine with Knott, Klein, and the guys we have now.

    Future is bright with Klein and Knott. Would like to see Jeremiah George commit.

    Re: Is CPR looking at a JC MLBer?

    Coach Rhoads said on the call-in show on Monday the 19th that LB was our biggest need for this next in-coming class numbers wise and that at least one would most likely be a junior college player. This is due to the number of graduating seniors at that position. All three starters are seniors.
