    Floyd Mattison confusion

    I initially heard he was going JuCo, but have read in recent threads that he is expected to be here or some people are projecting him to. Does anyone have a final answer on this or are we still waiting on word? Thanks in advance.

    Re: Floyd Mattison confusion

    I believe he applied for another school just in case the credit thing or whatever falls though.. so I'm pretty sure it just depends on how well he does in school.

    Re: Floyd Mattison confusion

    The double sign was just in case he doesn't get a qualifying score before the deadline. The Wedderburn kid we signed from Urbandale did the same thing, signed with ISU & I believe it was Iowa Central.

    Re: Floyd Mattison confusion

    So is it a SAT/ACT score we're waiting on or credits from his HS? Sorry, but just not close to the situation and was really happy with our LB recruits out of this class only to find out on signing day that Hulbert signs with Tech and Pate, Wedderburn, and Mattison will possibly be going JuCo.

    Re: Floyd Mattison confusion

    I'm guessing test score. Have these situations ever worked in our favor? I'm saying 5% chance he ever wears the uniform and I REALLY hope I am wrong cause the kid has talent and could be a beast.

    Re: Floyd Mattison confusion

    Umm...Troy Davis. We were able to get him because we stayed with him when the other big programs of the time (Florida State being one) felt he wasn't going to qualify. He got a late qualifying score and the rest is history!

    I see 2 names on the positive side. That may be 5%.

    Re: Floyd Mattison confusion

    If you ask this of Floyd himself, he is saying he will for sure be here. Him and Jeremiah George have already built a pretty nice relationship.

    Every year, there are a handfull of guys that need a test score or a certain gpa increase or to pass a certain class to qualify. Most times we only hear about the ones who didn't make it and have no idea how close others came to not qualifying. 5% is way low for the success rate IMO. Maybe closer to 50%.

    I still think Mattison has a great shot at coming to ISU. Wetterburn and Pate not so much.

    Re: Floyd Mattison confusion

    Still don't expect it.

    Certainly hope for it though.

    Re: Floyd Mattison confusion

    The title of this thread makes me think Floyd is confused about something else.
