    I think this guy also came on Junior Day with Rashad Vaughn and attended the Bylor game together.

    Yes - I think he's visited twice: Junior Day, and again this weekend.

    Please get a football/ basketball package deal- Malik Rucker and Rashad Vaughn

    Lets hope ARob can pass some good vibes of ISU to him for us :) He has a lot of good offers.

    I also hope he doesn't want to be on the receiving end of a Bo Pelini meltdown in the future.

    Do the words cruel and unusual mean anything to you?

    I would rather that he "brings the motherbleeping Ruckus" or Rucker as it is.

    Word is that A-Rob is trying to get him to come to ISU. If he has A-Rob's work ethic, then I really hope we land him. He's a Gopher fan, but then again... so is A-Rob! In fact, A-Rob was very close to transferring to Minnesota after his redshirt freshman year. I think we will get this kid just because of A-Rob telling him things about the program.

    We seem to be recruiting a higher caliber of athlete this year, but so far with not so great results. I guess that's to be expected, but I was hoping Paul's momentum would carry over to recruiting.

    So far, two commits with zero other offers between them, so I'm not convinced our problems can be pinned on the fact that we're going after more sought after players.

    Yeah, I don't know what to make of things right now. We've got two kids that no one else had offered. On the surface, that looks terrible. However, sometimes you get lucky and get a kid before they "blow up." I would think the positives from the OSU game would pay more dividends, but that win might actually help more with next year's class if we can get back to a bowl this year. Many kids are well into their recruiting before that game even happened for the 2013 class.

    My biggest concern right now is that we're positioning ourselves to be fighting for 8th in the big twelve with the two Kansas schools for the near future. That's not good.

    That's a myth and has been since the start. We are recruiting the same type of players. It was a cover for our "slow" recruiting. The problem is our best recruiter is based in Florida and its hard to get kids to commit to something they haven't seen yet. We will have this "slow" recruiting every year we don't have an "in" with a kid.

    I will say that our first two commits this year look very good. The saftey commit is one of the most impressive recruits we've had in the last couple classes.
