I've been just in awe of recruiting over the past few days. Having watched Cyclone recruiting for over thirty years, I don't think I've seen such a stretch for ISU football. Basketball, maybe, but not football. I'm not going to pretend to be privy to CPR's thought processes, and I don't mean to slight the likes of Quenton Bundrage, Dondre Daley, P.J. Harris, or the rest of the young receivers. But I had a few thoughts about the two big names at wideout which have plunked into our laps the last few days. Andre Lewis is a force all unto himself. According to published accounts, he had a great time in Ames last weekend, fit in with the players, and has to be excited about the possibilities of playing for Paul Rhoads and the Cyclones. I can't blame him. I do have to wonder, however, whether Allen Lazard's commitment might have given him pause. I certainly hope not. After all, he would have a year to arrive, a season to get established, before Allen ever arrives. Not only that, with all of the young receivers, he'd be a centerpiece, a guy with size, physical maturity, and a degree of post-high school experience that most of the returning receivers don't have, he'd complement them perfectly. Then, a year later, when Lazard arrives, as a senior he'd have a chance not only to mentor, but to be a guy who helps take the pressure off of the freshman newbie, and allow him to blossom at his own pace. Shoot, if you were a good receiver, why wouldn't you want that type of talent on the other side of the field? I say that entirely aside from how much I like Bundrage, Daley, Harris, West and Ecby. I'll also point out that most, if not all, of the other elements appear to be there, from an improving offensive line, to young quarterbacks who can throw the ball. Not to get aside of myself, but I'll dare to say that if Grant Rohach or Jared Barnett beats out Same Richardson, it's only because they are better than he has shown he can be. And given what we've seen of him, I think that's quite reasonably good. And given the way SR tends to put the ball right on target, what receiver wouldn't want to catch passes from him? One neat thing is (should they both end up Cyclones), is that the two--and tight end commit Alex Leslie--have the same initials. Now, I don't know what Andre or Allen's middle names are, but it sure would be great to see them both be A.L. IN! So, if Campos and Lazard committed every other day, it must be Andre's turn tonight. Andre Lewis, come on and join the Coach Paul Rhoads party! Go Cyclones!
