I see we have a couple freshmen walk on RBs. I can't imagine a walk on RB is ever going to see the field at a place like ISU, unless you are fast and make the kick or punt team. Just seems like you would be better off at a smaller school or at least one that didn't just produce Montgomery and Hall to the NFL.

And certainly a walk-on couldn't make the second most memorable running play in Iowa State history! :jimlad:

Thx J! I now count 7 RBs, which makes me feel a little better (walk-ons or not).

And might we some day see a fake FG (pass) or a RB pass with Aiden Flora? He is listed as a RB now, but was a running QB in high school.

People have their own reasons for walking on, it’s not always about playing time for them.

I noticed over the weekend that the rest of the transfers had been added. Now, looks the rest of the freshmen are listed.

Still no height/weight updates, probably not for another month.

As one of the former interns who entered in the heights/weights onto cyclones.com, I wouldn’t put too much thought into them.

We’ve had several walk on RBs play.

In the mid Eighties, I knew a walkon RB named Carlyn Cole. He wasn’t a big guy, I don’t think he expected to see the field, but he kept going out there to be part of and help the team.

Always respected that.

I think it has a lot to do with the winner takes all constant competition we exist in. People are only encouraged to dominate rather than how important supporting roles are in society.

RB's are often the best athletes on their hs teams. Strong, fast, can take a hit.

Seems like a good pond to fish for special teams guys...

A tale as old as time is a WR being listed at 6'4" in college. He gets to the NFL Combine and he's suddenly 6'2 3/8".

Abu Sama will soon be listed as the next Dickerson, 6-3, 220#.
