I don't get why we didn't/don't let him sign a LOI. The worst that can happen is that he doesn't pass clearinghouse and goes to prep school for a semester, which is apparently what we want.

Iowa really needs to focus and target kids who want to be Hawks. Clearly Billings, who reminded me of a Tim Dodge/DJ Johnson mix was not interested in being a Hawk therefore he was not wanted anyway.

Sounds like it's a football thing and not an Iowa thing. He just doesn't want to play football.

Stale info, but Billings apparently reported in horrible shape and was getting it big time from Doyle. Several incomers reportedly showed up in poor shape. Hockenson was mentioned as one reporting in great shape. The walk-on RB from Fort Dodge (Sam Cook) is supposedly killing it, too, prompting coaches to tell him not to gain weight for FB and that he'll start out at RB. The reporting poster also mentioned Toks speed has been impressive.

No, just what I mentioned (was from an HR poster). It was mentioned that Cook has the fastest 10-yard time. That kid will at least be a kid that people will hate to practice against, I'll betcha.

Hopefully a few of the youngsters at the DT, CB and safety positions emerge. Depth at those positions looks really weak after this year.

Sam Cook is a heck of an athlete. Period

So far we've gotten tidbits about Hockenson and Fant impressing from VB and CJB. Lattimore from Reece Morgan. Now Wade and Jones at LB from Jweel.

Saw this feature on Darby today and wanted to refresh my memory on why he didn't make it to Iowa.


This thread has some TAEKS! Ended up being one helluva class.
