    New Football Commit....

    Not who your expecting, but, hadnt heard that Nick Kron from West Des Moines Valley had committed to ISU. He was visiting this weekend, and apparently committed according to CN. He's a DE and wonder if this is a grayshirt possibility?

    Next question is, why spend a scholarship from next years class on a kid when we already know that next years class is going to be smaller in size?

    Now i would like to hear about Mr. Kirksey.....

    Re: New Football Commit....

    Somewhere it did say that he would be a greyshirt, which is fine. Did anyone see him play this last year? He has good size.

    Old news. He committed a couple of weeks ago. And yes, it's a grayshirt.

    Re: New Football Commit....

    I heard it was a walk on situation. I had heard nothing of a grayshirt.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    I love highlight videos. DOn't get me wrong, Kron was a very good HS player, but some of those highlights are against backups.

    Re: New Football Commit....

    I don't get too excited about Valley recruits. ISU has recruited several in the last few years and mostly they have been back up players who have not really excelled at anything.

    Hopefully, Kron is not in this mold, but his lower body does not look overly impressive in terms of his speed and explosion.

    Hope I am wrong. I just wonder if the staff isn't consistently overestimating the ability of the Valley kids due to the overally talent advantage they usually have over other teams.

    In other words, Valley has more kids, better players, and that leads to some players looking better than they really are.

    Re: New Football Commit....

    He was decent this year. I will certainly agree with that. Of course, he was a walk on to start with and not one of the many players who were offered scholarships from Valley.

    Re: New Football Commit....

    Jake Knott from Waukee was a really late commit last year. I saw him play a lot but didn't think he could play D1 and he surprised the heck out of me. So with that said, I'll trust the staff in regards to situations like this...
