    This one get's asked about every other week also. Give the new staff some time. They haven't even had a camp yet. That's when quite a few offers are given and some are accepted by the kids.

    Re: No football commitments yet???

    ive been waiting forever for our 1st signee. Maybe because everyother team seems to have at least 2-3 commits and how fast Chizik signed everyone after he was hired.

    People are saying he wont get a commit until summer camp. There are 2 prospect camps at ISU, the 1st one June 9th, the 2nd on July 28th. It would be nice to hear from someone around the 9th of June.

    I know it doesnt matter when they verbal as long as we can get some quality, but im really Jonesin' for some football news. Im so desperate for recruiting news i hear over to HR to see what the Hawgeyes are doing in recruiting.

    Concerned? Concerned? If you aren't concerned then you aren't a true Cyclone fan. Heck, if you aren't staying up late every night weeping until we get our first commit then you aren't a true Cyclone!

    Do you realize that ISU is the only team in the Big XII with no committments. Heck Brewster has already racked up a few at Minnesota.

    Even Wyoming has commitments. I do not think you have to wait for camp to get people to commit. If so, maybe we are waiting on hiring the chaplain so we can check out the moral fiber of prospective players.

    How refreshing. May 22, 2007 and the rest of the decade is ruined because we don't have any recruits yet. We should have hired Brewster he's evidently a better recruiter. Come on folks calm down. I know its the slow season but we can survive until June 9 before having a heart attack about recruiting.

    Id like to see us go after Staggs. He impressed quite a few at the combine in KC. Good size and great speed.

    The best team pretty much have their classes filled. That uis all he is saying. Obviously we are still playing catch up. it should be better in two yerars.

    Same situation for McD. He is looking at ninth graders for the future. It takes time for them to mature.

    Gentlemen, It's not about when they commit...it's about making sure you offer and get the right players to commit to your program!



    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.

    The best teams (i.e. Texas & Oklahoma to name a few) have 4 & 5 Star recruits that have always dreamed of playing for the Longhorns or Sooners, etc. Since they have been offered by their "Dream School", they have decided to commit.

    How many recruits dream about playing for the Cyclones? Probably not many and those that do are from Iowa are probably better suited to be walk-on candidates. Iowa just doesn't have as much HS talent as Texas. The state has what, 10 legitimate D-1 caliber players each year??? Compare that with states like Texas and Florida.

    We have offered several kids, but these kids have several offers to choose from. The majority of these kids are probably waiting to attend a few camps, meet the coaches & players, tour the university, etc.
    Then they can make their decision on what's the best situation for them. Of course, they may also be waiting for better offers from their "Dream School".

    That is really not that surprising, Brewster is a hell of a recruiter.
