    National Signing Day Eve

    I was just talking to Stewo about this year's signing day and how "un-eventful" it seems it might be this year for the Cyclone faithful. Not un-eventful in terms of a bad class, but more so in the lack of last day additions, subtractions, and surprises.

    Part me of really likes the fact that we squared away pretty much the entire class early and it seems likely all of them will sign with the good guys. The other part of me is really going to miss the last minute surprises that generally come with national signing day.

    Either way, we should all be very proud of the class this staff as assembled thus far. In the time I've been following recruiting, this is easily the best class ISU has had.

    Keep it up coaching staff!

    There will probably be a few surprises, but I think it's great we're not scrambling last second like we seem to have so much in the past. Now the key will be to get all the guys here.

    Re: National Signing Day Eve

    I find it refreshing that we are getting the players we recruited early and not sitting around waiting to see if we get last minute rejects from other Big XII teams.

    It sounds like we might even have a player or two that has a provisional offer based on if someone drops from our current list.

    While I like surprises, it is MUCH better this way.

    Hopefully we pull Kirksey and call it good.

    Hopefully each recruit has fully discussed their decision with their parents as to avoid another SJ fiasco.

    Agreed.

    The thing that has really surprised me so far is this staff and their ability to recruit. These guys are closers, proven by the stat from last fall regarding the ratio of visits to commits (was almost 1:1).

    The only guy that I fear may not sign with ISU is Adrian Bennett. Since committing to ISU, he has visited TCU. Not sure if there is an offer on the table or not, but he'd be the one to watch, IMO.

    My feeling too. I think he stays with us, but he has had some interest as of late.


    I'm on Twitter too: Tre4ISU

    Or so I have read.

    I think/hope/pray he does, too. I have to believe that CPR and staff have been down to see him a few times since he's committed and told him to either stick or switch.
