This from the Ames Tribune...
Zac Sandvig, a tailback in high school, is playing cornerback for ISU and also is practicing returning punts and kickoffs. (Didn't know he'd switched to defense.)
Junior-college transfer Lee Tibbs has made a good early impression and should see playing time in his first season. "He'll be pushing for a No. 1 position on the offensive line, I don't think there's any question," McCarney said. (Nice to have options there.)
I'll be very curious to see how the defense shapes up in the next 3 weeks...
I saw Sandvig yesterday. He confirmed exactly what you posted.
If there's one thing I've learned, it's that position switches are almost never permanent. He could switch back to offense and then back to defense a couple of times before he's through.
