    I'm starting to believe the hype about Shontrelle Johnson!

    Go over to cyclones.com and watch the RB Pass Protection drill. Shontrelle is #5. I'm not sure which LB he blocks, but he takes him to the ground and keeps him there. I think a fight must have nearly broke out. Coach Pope goes crazy, as well as the players watching. This kid wants to play... and now.

    I've been downplaying all the annointing of this kid before he even set foot on campus, because you can have all the talent in the world and still not have the heart or desire needed to play Big 12 football. I'm starting to buy in big time that this kid has IT, and wants to play THIS YEAR. I love it!

    Also, on a sidenote, I don't think Duran Hollis or James White will want to see that video? They both get steamrolled by someone. I love what White can do with the ball in his hands, but he has to be much tougher on his blocking than what he showed in that video. Obviously, that was only a few plays, he might have done really well the rest of the time when not on video... so that doesn't mean much. But Shontrelle has no fear folks!

    You are right, in that it was only one drill. However, SJ took on Jake Knott in that drill. Duran Hollis got somewhat rolled (but quickly came back up fighting) by Jeremiah George.

    P.S. Ben Lamaak recently stated that only 5 of his recruiting class were still at Iowa State. IMO, this incoming class is absolutely loaded with "gamers" !

    Yes, props to Knott for that first hit, but I'm not so sure he would have still gotten to the QB or not? SJ still fought extremely hard after that initial hit to stay with it. But yes, Knott overpowered him at first, but Knott also is on a dead run and SJ is standing still.

    I think Knott and SJ were really going after it. That's good! Knott doesn't want to be shown up by the freshman, and SJ is trying to prove he should be #2. Great competition level. You gotta love it on both sides!

    Skills on film... Check.
    Heart, desire, tenacity... Check.
    Ability to perform position duties during practice/scrimmage... TBD.
    Ability to perform position duties on Game Day... TBD.

    He's on track, which is a great sign. But he's young, guys... He's going to have "2 steps forward, 1 step back" moments this year, for sure, but the potential sure is looking good, isn't it....?

    I feel more confident in our backfield than I have in a very very long time. Should make for an exciting year.

    If CPR can recruit classes like these guys every year we will be in good shape for the years to come...

    I caught the video as well. I loved hearing the pop of the pads and helmets.

    He went 83 yards on his first touch as a redshirt freshman in my NCAA 11 Dynasty.

    I remember being really excited about Bo Williams and Jerimiah Swartz last year.

    Freshman aren't supposed to block like that in the first week of practice. He has a little attitude, that's for sure.


    It's all snark from here on out
