    anyone have any info on him. watched his youtube clips and checked out his rivals page, looks to have the size and strength, but maybe lacks the speed needed at the big 12 level...move to DE? Any info would be much appreciated. Thanks.

    A Valley grad. very good HS linebacker. Good frame, good motor, runs well, not great. He was a better HS linebacker than Jesse Smith.

    Runs high 4.4 from ICCC's son, Rhoads was really trying to get this kid to walk-on, and I'm glad he did. Don't be surprised if this kid is fighting for playing time next year.

    Our LB spots are wide open at this point. Let the fighting for a job begin!

    Looks like a great addition. Looking forward to watching him on Saturday. Do we normally get this many great walk ons or is there a Rhoads Effect, everyone wants to play for him? I very much enjoy any information on these walk ons.

    This kid lacks speed. Wouldn't be surprised if he played special teams, but if he is our best option at linebacker, we are in trouble. A switch to DE would be a good spot for him. If he plays DE, I think he could get some playing time.

    6-2, 245 with a 4.6. That sounds GREAT!

    I played at iowa central. He is a beast on the field. Big, strong, helluva linebacker. The coaches were really high on him. He was originally going to iowa but didnt have the grades. Good to pick up a great LB like him!

    Better than Jesse Smith. Wow. Wasn't Jesse a two time 1st team all state LB in High School and we all know that he was All Big 12 this past season. I have a hard time believing that, but if its true than I can't wait to watch him play for the Cyclones.

    Pritchard was All-State at least 1 year. I have no idea how he will do at ISU. I remember watching Smith in HS thinking he was good. Pritchard was dominating in HS, similar to Pat Angerer, nearly impossible to block and a motor that wouldn't quit.

    Reads and covers well, takes good angles, can shed blocks, tackles well... and most important... doesn't quit.

    I like him. :yes:

    I think he'll play a nice role on special teams. Can't really see him cracking the lineup on D though unless we have some injuries.

    Who knows?
