Did we want Raridon? It seem like the staff is not going too heavy on DTs this recruiting cycle. I believe we did want Wisnieski, but Iowa has produced some great TE in the past(not with Greg Davis, but details).
I would recommend watching the senior highlights video for both Alex Leslie and Jon Wisnieski. Both are very good football players. In my opinion, Jon Wisnieski looks like an U of I TE. Alex Leslie looks like an ISU TE. (Actually, Leslie reminds me a lot of Collin Franklin.)
ISU did not offer Raridon and rumor at the time was that Iowa pulled his offer.
ISU was late to the table with Wisnieski but I think it was more due to him being more of a pro style TE as opposed to an Hback type. Don't get me wrong, I think ISU would have liked to have him, but I think both sides understood he would be a better fit at IA.
Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.
