    Eduardo Carmona Signs With Iowa State

    It is official: From the KFSM Channel 5 Website

    CHARLESTON - If patience is a virtue, Eduardo Carmona has more than many in the world today. After a very successful senior season at Charleston High School, Carmona went virtually unnoticed by most college coaches. However, one year later, Eddie is finally set to try out the biggest state in college athletics.

    Maybe his nickname should be "Lucky Eddie," because it was luck this summer that put Carmona in the position he's in today. In 2005, Carmona helped lead the Tigers to a state championship as the team's kicker. Carmona was steady and reliable from most distances on the field, so much he was named MVP of the championship game. He was regarded as one of the top prep kickers in the state, which is a very short list but received no offers for a division one school.

    In the fall of 2006, Carmona was in Goodman, Mississippi at Holmes Community College but didn't play football, instead Eddie was redshirted his freshman year. This summer while still in Mississippi, Carmona used a player combine to his advantage and after a performance many back home in Charleston were accustomed to seeing, coaches from all over came calling.

    On Friday, Carmona signed on to play at Iowa State University. Charleston Head Coach Doug Louchridge says all indications point at Eddie being able to compete for the starting job. A job, if all goes well, Lucky Eddie could keep for four seasons thanks to his redshirt year in community college.

    Cyclone players are to report to Ames, IA on July 31st. Practice begins the following day.

    If he signed with us in July, one would think that he'd be listed on the roster, which he is not.

    I've heard rumblings that we had a kicker set to come in last summer, but he ran into clearing house problems so he returned to a Juco to get them resolved. Supposedly the problems have been resolved. This could very well be the guy. He should be a 3 to play 3 guy.

    The thread is from July 26 '07 so I'm guessing he won't be a clone.

    Here is his scout profile for 2008, didn't see one on rivals site for him.
    I like the biography saying "Exceptional kicker/punter according to his coach"

    If you read further down in that post, he has not signed. There appears to be a problem with the individuals international paperwork. According to the post later, it says the schollie will remain on the table and that they will await the ruling to determine if he's eligible.

    Must have some skills because Mahoney and Dimke both have us listed, although neither have been offered a schollie yet.....wonder if thats awaiting the info on this kid????

    You mean we could have won a couple more games this year if the NCAA had not checked up on this guy? This is too much the NCAA Clearinghouse needs to go to the Nobody Could Access Acceptance (NCAA) Outhouse.

    He has a bio from 2006 on rivals, but it doesn't list any offers or commitments.
