    Re: This guy plans on visiting ISU

    Big 12 interests and no major offers... he looks like a bigger guy and if we want to run the spread I would think ISU would be looking at a smaller, faster back that can catch in the flat. I don't think it would hurt to be the first Big 12 school to offer him

    5'8"/180 lb. isn't exactly big by BCS conference RB standards, is it?

    we'd probably have a good shot at him, wouldn't we?...he pretty much says he isn't considering KSU and the top Big 12 schools aren't on the radar.

    Seems like a good kid - would fit in well here.

    You do realize that describes one of the all-time RB greats, probably before he entered college, right?

    Re: This guy plans on visiting ISU

    I'm not sure if I'm interpreting your posts correctly or not, but my response was to 3GenClone saying "he looks like a bigger guy and if we want to run the spread I would think ISU would be looking at a smaller, faster back".

    My point is not whether or not a smaller back can succeed. My point was that 3 GenClone was making it sound like he's a big back and I though just the opposite...

    Wow, this kid is practically in my on backyard. Maybe I need to get to his next game and see what he is all about.
