How did you get so much negative rep with such genuine comments? Must be the Squakeye fans on this board.
Regarding Dez Bryant and A.J. Penson from Lufkin HS in Lufkin, TX. (The only HS in Lufkin. Texas A&M QB Reggie McNeal came from there.)
I talked to a ISU grad friend who traveled to Lufkin on business on Tuesday. The subject of ISU Football came up and a Lufkin native said he thought Penson and Bryant might try to go to the same school and Iowa State was recruiting them both. Time will tell if this is credible.
I saw Dez Bryant play in the playoffs last years against powerhouse Southlake Carroll. Carroll won the game and the state title, but Bryant was a major force in that game. After the game I was visiting with Carroll's starting free safety, who played as a frosh at Rice this year. He told me Bryant was the strongest and most physical receiver he had played against. Coming from a young man who started at FS on consecutive Texas 5A title teams - I think that is saying something about Big Dez.
