I know it's his high school coach so it's going to be all positive, but this article made it move.

Edit: Also lol at the local Iowa sports writers when a guy who does a majority of recruiting coverage that they don't do, Blair Sanderson, beats them to the punch on this too.

Was Spencer there one that wanted to redshirt and not play right away?

I’m all in on Big Spence, but why was he going to Oregon State? Did he not have many offers?

Clearly a West Coast Bias issue.

He looks like a combo of McNabb and Favre to me.
The ball jumps out of his hand. He appears to be slightly less athletic than Nate (somewhat knock kneed). I think he’s got the clangers to make up for it.

He looked 12 when he committed. I'm sure part of his improvement is just general physical maturity because he looks like a college QB now. I'm sure O'Keefe knew this as well because they turned down a couple other solid QBs late in favor of Petras.

Kirk is confident enough to not even really pretend it was a competition.

Apparently also it's PEE-triss. I think in my head I always said "Peh-tras".

Wow, you thought of it as having no accented syllable. Interesting.

What's up with the "position changes" thread at HROT? Come on, make this site worthwhile!

Logan Lee from DT to DE and Waggoner from DE to DT.

Lee is a big time athlete with great height. Could be another in the mold of Anthony Nelson.
Glad they moved Lee back outside. He would have been a good DT but seems like a waste of his athleticism and end is a bigger need at the moment. Think he has a good chance to start unless Joe Evans gains like 20 pounds this off-season. Could definitely see bumping him inside for certain pass rush situations like they did with AJE late in the year though.

Jake Gervase has been back and working out in Iowa City and claims Joe Evans is a freak from an athleticism/strength standpoint.

He's really good! He's just also 240 pounds. He will have a role, it would just ideally be more of a situational role.

Like Nate Meier, who incidentally would Captain my All-Underrated-Hawkeye squad.
Yeah exactly. Meier was very good for what he was but ideally he probably should not have been an every down player and the best pass rusher on the team

Too bad Meier couldn't have redshirted. Two years mostly on special teams, wasn't quite good enough as a junior and was very solid as a senior until his body became hamburger late in the year.

It would be great if Evans could hit 250-55 and retain speed.
