So, you wouldn't trade 2017 recruiting classes with Iowa State?
Never said I wouldn't, I was alluding to how the hype surrounding Campbell helped swing recruits to Ames. I'd love some of those P5 players to help get UNI back up to the top of the MVFC. Much more likely than ISU seeing the top of the Big XII

Panthers got a commitment from QB Johnny Sullivan out of Clinton.

Johnny was one of the top passers in Iowa last couple years. Highly accurate...64% completion.

Johnny put out some trick shot videos when he was 12 that got some news coverage a few years back. You can still find them on YouTube.

Not the biggest kid...But looks like he can throw it in a coffee can from 40 yards.

UNI picks up another big body in John Yount OL.
6'4" 280

https://mobile.twitter.com/danmholm/...56006701412353

http://www.hudl.com/video/3/3363512/...8ec58aa41c0de6

Looks like when Farley mentioned they were going for big physical lineman , they were not kidding. Can't be sure about how well they will pass block, but these guys look like they will be maulers.

Looks like UNI has also got a commitment from LB/TE Chris Kolarevic out of Traverse City, Michigan.

Had a PWO offer from the Wolverines.

Watched a little of his highlight video. I'd use the words fast and physical to describe what I saw.

We don't sign a lotta kids outta Michigan.

Looks like Schirck is indeed going to sign with the Gophers. Figured he was going to get an offer with an invite to visit this close to signing day.

That's the thought I have watching all the films on the guys we have committed.

I don't know if they can hold pass blocks for s*** but they are sure as hell big mother f-ers that want nothing more than beat the living hell out of the guys across from them.

That's refreshing. I like it. I also like the fact they are all 6-4 to 6-6 and 280 plus coming in. Don't have to spend a redshirt year plus a year or two to get them to 300. With these kids the size is already there, now it's just tuning the body.

Yeah it jumped out at me watching Yount's video...he was tossing around DL men from some prominent 4A programs from Central Iowa in an impressive manner.

Sometimes you watch those videos and it's the biggest kid on the field pancaking kids who are 60 lbs smaller. Yount was facing some of Iowa's best defenses and dealing out some punishment.

I'd like to see us add another RB that can play next year, that is the area that we are very thin at next year, all we have is Allen, Graham and Browning. There is talent, but no depth.

Other than that I am excited to see how the redshirts from last year progressed.

I'm wondering if they might give Isaiah Trousil out of West Burlington a look at RB...Or if he'll go at CB or safety.

Also wonder if anyone ever heard who shined on the scout team last year. That's usually a pretty good indicator of what RS are likely to have big freshman years. Heard the scout DL was pretty physical but that's about all I ever heard from MF.

If this is true that looks like an amazing grab. His highlight tape is legitimately B10 good. A PWO from Michigan is pretty damn good with how they've been recruiting.

That's unfortunate, he'd be a beast on that line for us. I believe I heard that Bedale Naba from Valley will be coming to UNI. He's a little shorter but strong and nasty as hell and much faster and athletic than your typical DL. Will be interesting to see if he sticks at that position

If he's anything like Boothby on the field, I'll take it.

I think Hahn is going to Iowa. I believe we are getting another kid from Valley who did some PK, kick offs and some punting.

Unless something has changed in the last week, it appears that the shoemaker is going to AIB East

Sorry got excited when I heard we were getting the kicker from Valley

Hope we end up with a good group of players. I thought last year was a great recruiting class. We will see what we end up with after all the coaching deptures
A lot to take place between now and spring ball

Looks like Bryce Flater has verbally committed to the Panthers.

Does anyone know if UNI has offered anything to Kade Warner...Kurt's son.

Kurt has been pretty vocal on Twitter about his son not drawing any FBS or FCS offers despite being Arizona's career receptions leader. He's got some PWO offers but it's clear he wants a scholly.

Several have asked him about UNI but he doesn't answer...although he'll answer directly about other schools showing no interest.

Tough call for UNI. I'd love to have KW's boy here...would be good for program and he's got some game...but would cost you an out of state scholly and we're obviously being careful about spending those.

Just curious if anyone has heard anything.

I thought someone said he was going to an Ivy League school, which I took to mean he's a pretty smart kid and may play football in college but has higher priorities. He doesn't exactly need a scholly, unless he's dead set on paying his own way.

Kurt's comments seem to be that he's concerned about him being a walk on because you're an after thought for the coaches...they're not invested in you.

Not sure if that's true but that's his take.

Can't imagine it's a financial concern.

Denzel Fondungallah...The WR who tweeted that his scholarship was pulled and then said Farley called to clarify it was not...Has verbally committed to.........Augustana.

Pretty sure the kid took on official visit to Cedar Falls this past weekend.

Maybe it is a sore subject, but I haven't heard much on here about Oliver Martin. Learned last night that he committed to Michigan, then jumped in the pool with Harbaugh. Man, would I have loved to see what he could have done for four years in the Dome.

He had offers from all the mid-level to upper level Big Ten teams along with Florida, UCLA, Notre Dame, etc. He was never going the FCS route but it's a big blow to the Hawkeyes not getting the #1 prospect in Iowa.

Jaylen Campbell...6'1" 190 lb RB/LB out of Wisconson...Now a Panther.

Mentioned as one of best remaining uncommitted players in Wisconsin.

Had offers from NDSU and several other good FCS programs.

Still. Kudos for UNI stepping up and making an early offer. From what I read, Martin might have stayed in Iowa City if they had made an early offer than coming in after everyone else started to do so. I can still dream about watching him eat up DBs in the Dome.
