Yes love the fact you have a guy like Lazard being the leader of the next class. Lazard is a leader and a player that can have an impact on this class.
Just like Jake Christensan did with that monster class the Hawks put together. The only difference is this class will actually amount to something great.
It's a long way to signing day, a little over a year, so we are going to have to continue to recruit this one til the end. Definitely a game changer, make us proud Allen!!
I think to show the appreciation we should show up at his first game wearing the cardinal and red. Get him and his team off to a good year.
Like winning a BCS bowl? Oh, wait.....
And for the record, I can understand why Lazard would commit to Iowa State. Strong family ties there, and the program is on the upswing. The fact that Iowa State runs an offense that skill players like him enjoy playing in (unlike Iowa's 1960's pro-style, which coincidentally is the reason I think they have a great shot w Ross P) probably pushed him over the edge.
The kicker to all of this is that the kid committed this early. He could have spent another full year being courted by some of the biggest schools in the NCAA, but he bought what CPR was selling so much he took himself off the market. While I realize a verbal won't stop other schools from pursuing him, it really does say something about CPR that he committed this early.
Where did I say Ross P was a lock to commit to Iowa? I didn't....I realize there is a greater chance he goes elsewhere, than goes to Iowa. Simply said he wasn't going to go to Iowa State. I feel fairly confident about that. As far as Lazard and Campos goes, those are two great commits for Iowa State. Momentum is clearly snowballing in the program right now, and those two players could turn out to be tremendous players for you. However, I think most Iowa State fans are losing sight of the fact that these kids grew up ISU fans in central Iowa. I realize a few years ago they would have gone out of state, and them choosing ISU clearly shows you are improving. But why don't we hold off on the in-state domination talk, and wait until they get a commit from somewhere east of I-35 before we claim them in-state kings.
Campos wasnt really an ISU fan as a kid, to my knowledge. I know that family, both parents went 2 drake.
