    Which current FB signees were recruited by Ash?

    Do we have to worry about any of our commits we just signed transferring because Ash quit? Which ones was he the main recruiter for?

    And... how soon does everyone suspect that we will have a replacement announced? If I'm some of these new DBs, I think I'd like to know who my position coach is as soon as possible?

    Thoughts?

    Re: Which current FB signees were recruited by Ash?

    For this year we shouldn't have many problems. Ash left after signing day so they are locked up and would have to sit, and possibly lose a year of elligability, in order to transfer. We may have some guys lose interest for next year depending on who we bring in. All in all, if he was going to leave, that was the best timing for ISU.

    I would guess Wisky had a full class signed on signing day (didn't look to for sure) but there probably isn't any scholarships available for anyone to leave with Ash.

    Maybe I have my head stuck in the sand, but Ash strikes me as having a little more honor than doing something like that...

    I believe Ash took care of the west so anyone from Cali was his and a few more. I wouldn't worry too much about that. They have to come this year or sit out a year if they are released. They probably would like to know and my guess is they will know pretty soon. I just don't see these guys going away from ISU because we lost an assistant. I think Rhoads involves himself enough with each one that they trust him to take care of him. I think Rhoads knew about this long before we did and has a short list and I would expect it to be filled next week.

    I think we are fine there.

    I think the OP meant transferring in general, not to Wisconsin

    Yes, that's what I meant. I don't think Ash will do anything to take recruits with him at all.

    But just becuase he was nice enough to wait until after the kids signed, doesn't mean these kids are happy? In fact, they might be even more angry about it. I would.

    I'd rather have him tell me before I committed and signed. Now I'm stuck. That could make my grudge towards Ash and Rhoads even greater, especially if Rhoads knew he was leaving and didn't tell me, the recruit. I'd be upset.

    Re: Which current FB signees were recruited by Ash?

    I don't know for sure but I think that the guy "recruiting" them is just a handler. He may not have actually contacted his position group, someone else may have. That is how I think they control risk. The have a position coach and a handler who most likely are two different people therefor they don't form such a strong bond that is so important. I would think that the whole staff is involved with the guys on their side of the ball as well as PR. I really am not worried about this.

    Re: Which current FB signees were recruited by Ash?

    What I mean is recruiting of an individual is spread out over a few different people. The guy you see listed on Rivals or whatever is just the contact person. I would think that is how it is done but I don't know that for sure.

    How is the view from the sand. There is very little honor in major college coaching of any sport and even less in mens basketball and football. It has become a cut throat business some would even say a cesspool.

    He would have been gone before signing day if that was the case with Ash's character. He isn't pulling recruits with him. For one he has only coached guys for a year.

    My statement was not meant as a knock against Ash but more a reflection of major college coaching as a whole.

    97% true. There are some good guys out there. I think we have one of the few. For the most part, though, most guys are pretty cut throat but I can't blame them. It's a tough profession right now.
