He is deciding between his final two, Boise State and Iowa, this weekend. Here is a little on the WR/TE/LB, in case you don't know who he is. He is a 3 star no matter where you look.

I actually couldn't tell from speaking with him on which way he was leaning. He was pretty impressed with both visits. He grew up watching the Big Ten as his brother plays at Michigan and his father grew up in that state. Maybe that gives the Hawks an edge. Hard to say

Was just reading on espn about the whole Big East / Mountain West situation. Not sure which way Boise st is going in regards to which conference they'll end up in, so this may be to Iowas advantage concerning which school he picks.

We can't fire Ferentz for another 4 years because of his buyout. But we can sure as hell get rid of our worthless coordinators and AD!!

While this was unheard of 7 years ago, it is relatively common now. A couple of examples...Ioane (teammate of Teo in Hawaii) - Notre Dame (I almost died of shock on this one)Fields & Demas - OregonLawrence - Clemson, South Carolina, TennesseeWeaver - Texas A&MMiller - ArkansasYakoo - UCLAWe beat out the middle tier of the Pac 12 routinely for most of our guys today. One team we have yet to beat for a recruit is USC. They don't really recruit...they interview.

That has to sting a little. So he has a choice, play for his Dads hated Iowa or go to a much closer team and play offense, just like he wanted. Just a thought.

I have read that it is an up and coming, growing area, especially for the "boulder Colorado" type of outdoorsy crowd.

Since then (2002-2004) Ferentz was seemingly NFL bound. Once the NFL rumors died off a tad he had another great year (2009). Then some rumors come back and failed again. Now it's the program state and the fan base wanting him fired. Absolutely not the only reason why recruiting has fallen off but it doesn't help. Other programs simply say "KF won't be there". They have been able to say that since 2003. Now it's "KF is going to get fired" instead of "KF is going to the NFL". Players don't like it when a coach doesn't stick around. They also don't like the negative energy surrounding the program (fans, workouts, injuries, losing).The only thing Iowa can really hang their hat on right now is NFL quantity. I'm a personal believer that almost any guy Iowa put in the NFL would have been in the NFL anyways. Most players just want to win anyways. If they want to go to the NFL, they need mostly self drive and some proper training that about 40-60 schools can do for you.
