I agree with hiphopp/dualthreat/doc. This dude comes in and RS in 2013 then steps up to the plate in 2014. We then have a sweat rotation of 3 backs with different skills sets. Hasn't it been said before that Nealy has enough skill to play out the backfield or slot? If that is the case and we have him playing the Reggie Bush role and Standard/Wimberly playing the all-purpose back role, we are in good shape.
What is one thing you won't hear an Iowa fan say??
Are you kidding? Iowa will have that many runningbacks see the field in the first game alone. If they keep losing runningbacks at this rate, Iowa will have approximately 100 different backs see the field. They'll have to start drafting guys out of the stands by week 4.
I agree with the redshirting because looking at last years recruits they had zero running backs plus they lost Hollis. So after Johnson and White leave they just have Standard and Nealy.

At first when I saw this.....I thought.......why does ISU need a 2-year running back? But then thinking about it.......ISU will have 3 senior backs next year, and then probably kind of an experience gap, so if he redshirts next year......that would make a lot of sense.
-Be kind. That is something you will never regret. You will never say to yourself when you are old "I wish I was not good to that person".
