    This Q is for anyone who follows recruiting closely. I see he is a 3 star CB who is a little undersized (5'8). Is he suppose to be someone like Reeves where he has a lot of talent and would probably play at a school like A&M (or any other school in the big 12 with a good tradition) if he were just a few inches taller? I'm always excited to see us get a 3 star or higher DB (even though I know recruiting rankings don't mean jack ***** a lot of the time)

    Talent, speed, and a 40-inch verticle (IIRC).

    Yes, and if you can get a chance check out his highlight video. He has great leaping ability that trumps his height. Without seeing him, I would say similar to Reeves with a little more ups. Just the kind of guy ISU needs and will need to get.

    Nice. I think we'll be fine at the CB position if we keep recruiting like we have with guys like Benton and Reeves and now this guy

    I cannot bring myself to answer a QUESTION when the OP refers to it as a "Q" :jimlad:

    I think he is a legit 3 star guy. Probably a 4 if he is 5'10. Could be very similar to Reeves.

    I think hes a 2 star.. probably just because of size.. runs a 4.4 and is obviously talented and a good jumper. Don't get why he's not a 3 though

    I wasn't actually confused. It was my way of pointing out the interesting fact (at least to me) that we have commits from two people of the exact same name in the same recruiting class.

    Just another case of missed sarcasm through a couple of computers.

    After watching the highlight video I did see some things that opened my eyes.
    1. He's not afraid to go backwards to try to go forwards. That isn't always good.
    2. Quite a few of the interceptions were really crappy throws by the QB. That makes it easier, but he put himself in the position to get the ball.
