Default Class of 2016--Football Recruits

Didn't dig very deep to see if we had a similar thread elsewhere but who are some of our current targets and offers for the Class of 2016. I know the season hasn't started yet but the future is always bright when you're a Panther.

I noticed that 2016 QB Danny Carollo tweeted out that he had been offered by the Panthers yesterday. He's listed as a 6'2 200lb dual-threat QB.

Clemson University Basketball Point Guard Rod Hall graduate transfer to UNI to play Receiver for 1 year.
6'1" 205 pound
All State out of High School in 2010
http://theclemsoninsider.com/2015/07...northern-iowa/

While performing in front of NFL scouts ran a 4.55 and performed well.
Appears that he still needs seasoning, since he hadn't played Football in 4 years.

Was hoping for a bit more Ndamukong Suh, and a little less Kenan Thompson. Hopefully he'll drop about 30 lbs

Pairing him with Preston Woods will give us a couple of plugs in the middle. Allowing for the mobile DLs to do their work.

I second that sentiment.

I'm not sure what our record will be at the end of the season...but with our schedule, the coaching changes, scheme changes and new players in the mix...this is gonna be a good ride.

They're keeping it interesting...no doubt about that.

Speed and athleticism for sure. 6'7 high jump is very impressive and a 23'1 long jump would've been 2nd at the Iowa state meet for ALL classes (would've won classes 1, 3 and 4A). A 14.69 hurdle time would also be one of the fastest in the state. I wonder if there is a track component to him coming here as well.

I'd say you can mark Beyer off of your list. Lots of rumbles coming out of CR/ICity that he'll be going to Iowa before all is said & done.

Beyer has now flipped to Iowa so you can take him officially off of your list Bizon...

I'd assume UNI is taking a look at some of the Dowling juniors from this year. Nank (OL), Wells (DE). Also Zachary & Gaskill (both RBs). There's a receiver prospect too. Not sure if the skill players are quite fast enough to play at FCS or above, but Nank and Wells got some pub during the year. They could be some names to watch next fall.

Great news! I think we need to look at #76 the LT at the 30 second mark. He caught up to Jamahl. Big man has some speed.

Is Iowa State's Matt Campbell going to sweep in and steal any UNI prospects? He made an Toledo offer to my nephew, so I've heard firsthand about how effective he is as a recruiter.

HA Gophers, Iowa has taken 2 of our 2016 commits and Iowa St took a guy that said he was coming to ndsu.

Now NDSU and UNI are going after WIU Decommit's (2 of them so far Bradley & Cleveland) we'll see who wins!

Marcel Minniefield...DT out of the KC area...committed to the Panthers today per Twitter.

6'2" and 295 lbs. Low center of gravity, quick and athletic.

This looks like a good one. So hard to get DT's at the FCS level.

Spencer Brown has appeared to pick up an offer from UNI. He also has that he is a UNI Commit on his Twitter page.
Wonder what position he will play. Yahoo Sports has him as an OT, but he is listed as a TE and DE other places.

https://twitter.com/spencerbrown54/s...11854234451968

https://twitter.com/spencerbrown54

He looks like a BIG kid with some athleticism.

Tolu Ogunrinde has committed to UNI

https://twitter.com/BallForLife4

at 6'2" 220, he is athletic and he appears to be a Beast.
http://www.hudl.com/athlete/2289082/...s/301055385/v2

From what I've read he appears to be headed to the defensive side of the ball.
