    Highest rated recruit

    What/who is the highest rated recruit we have ever had? I dont know how long recruiting services have been around, so I am not really sure how far back you would have to go.

    Just off the top of my head i would think Seneca Wallace or possibly Troy Davis would be it, but i dont know of how to find out. Hoping someone on here is a recruiting guru.

    I think JERRY Moses (JJ's dad) was like the top recruit in the country, although they didn't have recruiting services back then like they do now.

    Re: Highest rated recruit

    Was Seneca even more than a 3 start considering he was a juco? This is going to be interesting since we've had our fair share of 4 stars that never quite lived up to the hype. Lot of our best players were mostly 2-3 star guys that developed into NFL type players.

    Re: Highest rated recruit

    My roommate and I were actually debating this stuff the other night.

    On that same note: Although we've had a handful of 4* (usually WR's), have we ever had even one 5* recruit?

    Re: Highest rated recruit

    I would guess that Sedrick Johnson is probably pretty high on the list, at least within the past 10 years that I've been an ISU fan. He was a 4* with a very impressive offer list.

    Re: Highest rated recruit

    Depends on who you go by. For Scout, probably Trent Flander out of Dowling in 05. He is the only non Juco 4 star since 2002.

    For Rivals, probably Flynn, Hicks, and Sed., all non juco 4 star recruits.

    I don't think Wallace was rated that high. He had a few teams offer at DB, but was not listed as a QB coming out of HS.

    I don't remember the recruitment of TD that much, but I remember us screaming for him to get playing time his FR year, so he must have had some cred......

    Actually, it may have been a kid that came to ISU to play a different sport. IIRC, Fred Hoiberg was the 3rd or 4th rated QB in his class, which would more than likely make him a solid 4 if not 5 star in today's recruiting.

    Probably Reggie Hayward in the modern era (in the last 15 years). Going back a little farther, Chris Boskey was also a very highly rated DT out of the Chicago area. I think he may have even been a Parade all-American.

    Re: Highest rated recruit

    Webster Patrick got a 5.9 rating from Rivals (tied with J.J. Bass for top spot from 2004-present), and was considered the #1 all-purpose back in the country.

    according to rivals (since 2002)

    webster patrick WOULD have been the highest rated with a #1 position rating and #95 national ranking. however, we likely got a commitment out of him because he was such a high academic risk and none of the big dogs offered.

    sedrick johnson is the highest rated we have landed since 2002 with a position rating of #34 and a national rank at #235

    no wonder we tend to dwell near or at the bottom of the big 12. 1 top 250 recruit landed in the past 8 years (and likely beyond)? not very good.

    Re: Highest rated recruit

    Trent Flander wasn't the only non-JUCO 4 star. I think the best recruit we have had straight out of HS was Paul Fischer. He was a high 4 star offensive tackle, back when Iowa was really bad, and we were alright.
