    A WR over 6 feet tall?!?! No way.

    Welcome boys.

    I have never really followed recruiting, but it seems like Rhoads is really hitting the recruiting hard and getting more commits earlier than we normally do. Is this a fair statement, or am I way off base?

    Happy to see that we beat out OU and OSU for Lynn. I'm surprised with Ecby though, I didn't even think he was looking at us.

    I like Ecby. He's a great rout-runner and has good hands, but isn't that fast. The route-running can make up for that though, as long as he makes the most of that ability.

    Have we ever had this many early recruits before?

    No, you are right on. This is the most recruits we've had this early in as long as I can remember. I think that means we are hitting on our first choices. That's a very good thing.

    Dude looks like a beast. He has a freakin' BURST after the catch on some of those. Looks like a nice large target to throw to as well.

    I think it is more of a national trend over the past few years. Kids committing earlier. Look at the number of commits for all schools, and they are all high. Just my opinion.

    Wow. He is a big XII receiver. I realize the video is his highlights, but on some of those plays he even looks like he could be NFL material. Mad props to whoever got us this kid.

    I would love to see us get a good DT next.

    You are probably right. Things always seem to eventually trend earlier and earlier. High school football kicked off last night! The fair isnt even over yet!
    And I wont be surprised if Christmas lights start appearing by Halloween either!

    great video of Tad. He reminds me a lot of denario alexander. A real long strider with some separation speed.

    Wow, Ecby is very well coached. What great technique he has on everything he does. Routes, catching, blocking...and he plays physical. Very good speed too. I like this pick up a lot.

    Not trying to be a Debbie Downer, but he was never officially offered by those schools. Still a great pick up though.

    Also, does anyone know why some kids don't have a ranking yet? A lot of our commits haven't been assigned a ranking, which is puzzling. Not that stars matter all that much. Just curious if they wait until the high school season to start before ranking everyone else or if some kids just never get assigned a ranking?

    That highlight video is very well made. All recruit videos should have that bubble and the spot shadow.

    Welcome to ISU boys. Both of these guys look like high caliber impact players. Glad we could lock them up.

    Just out of curiousity, does anyone know if we are targeting any JUCOs for next year? I know we'll get Rony Nelson eligible for '11, but I wouldn't mind seeing us go after another JUCO DE/DT.
