I actually like that goggles kid.

Can you imagine how much other teams and their fans would hate that fuck? It would be worth the scholarship.
Kinda reminds me of a more skilled version of Brennan Cougill.

You realize we've had more to say about a fat kid without an offer than about any active '22 recruit?

Maybe Fran is using that other kid to get to goggles

How fast does he hit the escape hatch when he hears “shirts and skins”.

He plans to visit Iowa.

In the event that Bowen doesn't come and also to create a competitive market, nice to see there are other irons in the fire. Going back to the posts about best Iowa recruits ever, he would arguably be #1 maybe #2.

Kakert said on his podcast today that Fran has taken over recruiting from his assistants. The players are saying most schools they talk to the assistants then the head coach. With Iowa it’s been Fran with an assistant sprinkled in.

Fran might need new assistants.

Or, he realizes how important the 2022 class is and wants a couple homeruns

Pretty sweet for Fran to get all that in while on vacation.

Maybe new assistants are planned before next season?

The assistants certainly have good jobs when you see how hard assistants at other schools recruit.

Speraw seems to be the coach Fran relies on most during games and practices
Eldridge someone on here posted was the guy establishing relationships with recruiting, he's the director of recruiting
Taylor has a good track record as an assistant and head coach, so I'm guessing his value to Fran is in game and practice prep
Sherm dresses nice

Certainly room for improvement.

I think Sherm works harder at the nightlife than he does recruiting.
Also not sure Speraw does much of anything with recruiting.

It would be nice if those two both retire and we can get some young guys in there.

I am warming up to the idea of horner as an assistant. He appears to be a good coach and I think he would be able to get most Iowa kids.

Ive heard (3rd hand info, take it for what it's worth) he's had some personal problems at Truman state, the kind that doesn't seem to make it likely he would be a candidate at major programs

I’d guess Gatens would be the next guy Fran would hire.

Horner hates the McCaffreys so there is no way he will ever be an assistant here under Fran. The feeling could be mutual, I’m guessing.

Yeah that’s completely untrue.

All of these 4 star and high 3 star targets have specifically mentioned that Fran has been the main contact and how that’s a big reason they like Iowa.

Might be a good thing for recruiting in this class but you’d think Fran would be getting tired of that. He’s loyal as hell though so who knows. I can see having one assistant like Speraw so doesn’t do much other than in state guys but kind of weird across the board. Eldridge gets some mentions with east coast connections, Dillard as an extra guy in touch. Not much on Taylor.
