Elam isn't expected to decommit. He said if things ended now, he'd go to West Virginia. You know why? Because he liked it, and he's now getting all the attention that comes with being a recruit of his level and he likes that.

He's not just any 5* kid going through this though, most probably would decommit, but Urban Meyer and Matt Elam's Family have a really good relationship and he's not going anywhere if Urban doesn't.

The only relative news is that we're in good shape for OT Brandon Linder....although that's been brewing for a while. Also in great shape for Keion Payne (pretty much behaves like a commit).

We still have a couple spots to fill at WR, DE & DB (ignoring "silent commits").

Since the OU win we've had Sean Tapley mention us in an article (not sure we have room for him) and Travis Williams named us his leader with a 60% chance of him committing.

Then there are the longshots like Joshua Shaw, Seantrel Henderson and some FSU commits/leans who have mild interest based on our current success. I wouldn't get too worked up about any of that.

C'mon now. He's a man with a specific approach to recruiting. Integrity? How many Iowa players have been arrested and not kicked off the team, including his own son? Between April 2007-February 2008 alone 14 players were arrested. That's over a player a month.

Basically the guy that interviewed C.J.'s coach was asking about the Iowa coaches and C.J.'s coach was answering about the Illinois coaches. So the Illinois coaches don't want him to take any more visits (except to Illinois) and honor his commitment. Makes a lot more sense than any coach saying to a top 5 TE don't visit please, it's disrespectful to our rival school. I do think it's kind of funny that Iowa rescinded a commitment last year from Justin Lattimore a 3* TE who visited Illinois after committing to Iowa.

Also you have to admit a 300 lb. guy getting an OWI on a moped is kind of hilarious.

It wasn't that long ago, that Under Armour All-American defensive back Joshua Shaw (Palmdale, Calif./Palmdale) canceled a visit to LSU and was planning to trip to Michigan instead. The talented corner has had a change of heart and will once again visit the Tigers this weekend.

Shaw will take his third official visit of the year this weekend to LSU after earlier visiting Ohio State and Florida.

"I hadn't heard from LSU in awhile so I didn't know if they were still recruiting me," Shaw said. "I've always liked them and they were one of my early favorites but when I didn't hear from them in awhile, I thought maybe they were going in a different direction.

"Then just last week, they contacted me to see if I was still visiting and I said I definitely still wanted to. I wanted to visit Michigan but it was never official, I never had a firm date or anything.

After reading that Zook and Illinois begged for him, I still see a good chance of him coming here. I've heard all season it seems that the announces seem to lable Iowa as "Tight End U". The last recruit that we got that was a Top Tight End, was actually the best Tight End in the nation, Tony Moeaki. While having a career filled with injuries, when he's on the field he's about the best player out there. He's a damn good player, and if he wasn't injured, he'd be a Day 1, if not Round 1 NFL Draft Pick. If CJ can see what Iowa does with Tight Ends, he'll be here. The fact that he entered Iowa back into the image is huge. We have so many more positives than Illinois does.

Well Beckum and now Graham.

Regardless of recognition, Iowa and Wisconsin are the top teams in the Big XI in terms of using their TEs. Personally, if I was a TE, I wouldn't go to a school that get's their TEs the ball like 30 times in the past 2 years.

For reference, Iowa has 23 receptions by it's TEs this year and Wisconsin 35 receptions this year (23 by Graham alone).

Absolutely kidding. Seriously, We were going to be hard pressed to do anything on the ground anyway, and if there's snow on the ground, it sure doesn't help a team that runs laterally (which is why I've always hated the spread in the Big 10).

On topic, I'm sure CJ will see a fairly healthy dose of TE's catching passes for you guys, as basically the only LB or S we have that seems to be able to consistently stay with TE's in coverage is Stevie Brown.

He'll be saying "I'm glad I didn't go" after we whoop your asses!!

Absolutely kidding. Seriously, We were going to be hard pressed to do anything on the ground anyway, and if there's snow on the ground, it sure doesn't help a team that runs laterally (which is why I've always hated the spread in the Big 10).

On topic, I'm sure CJ will see a fairly healthy dose of TE's catching passes for you guys, as basically the only LB or S we have that seems to be able to consistently stay with TE's in coverage is Stevie Brown.
Oh psh! Yeah right :)

It shall be a good game, the good thing about Iowa is we're a Power Running team that includes the playaction, I'm not a fan of the spread. I'd rather smack you in the face with power than run around you with speed. Our Defense should have a great game IMO, either way, going to be a damn good game.

I agree, CJ should see what he's missing being in Illinois, and the Illinois game is showing NO offense by Illinois which hurts the chances of them sustaining the commitment of him.

Quick! Name me the last USC or Ohio State OT to do something in the pros under Carroll or Tressel. Winston Justice, who's been serviceable at RT for the Eagles, is the only one I can think of.

I find it interesting how OSU and USC have had so much talent this decade, but not as much at tackle as other positions. For OSU at least I know our tackle and oline recruiting has been suck until recently. Hopefully we can start putting guys in the league now that we have talent like Adams, Shugarts, Hall, Norwell, etc. Same goes for SC with Smith, Kalil, and the bunch.

USC and OSU at least have big names of the past to fall on in Orlando Pace and Anthony Munoz, probably the two best college OTs of all time.

Hardly elite. We might get the occasional higher rated prospect, but I'd say our OL success has much, much more to do with coaching than it does with getting elite talent.

But you are right, told, OL is where we get better prospects than other positions. However, that doesn't really mean much compared to where Iowa sits in relation to recruiting at other schools.

Yea, more like a 4* or higher every 2 or 3 years.

But like I said, I'm happy to get some 3* with good size that the staff likes to coach up. They may not all be the best pro prospects, but it has seemed to work for our OLs over the years.

But anyways, it would be awesome to land Henderson, but I'm in no way holding my breath or even paying any mind to whether or not he's interested.

And CJ has said that he plans on visiting either late October or early November. Just throwing this out there to the other Hawk fans, let's hypothetically say we get Henderson and CJ (yea, just humor me). That would give us a 5* OL, 4* OL, 4* TE, 4*QB. If one of the RBs magically moves up to a 4* (Coker?), tell me what class that resembles for Iowa... :(

I was kidding really, just trying to parody how pumped some people on here get whenever their team signs a 2 star. He has a *shot* to someday start at defensive back there. He can't really throw to be honest.

I'm not crazy about this Minnesota recruiting class like I was the last two, but I think our entire offensive line recruiting has been solid. 6 prospects in total, all of which have the size and ability to be quality BCS starters (I'm sure 1-2 will move to DT).

He seemed to like his visit, but he also came when it was about 30 degrees outside, which can't help with a guy from Texas.

Do you know if Iowa is recruiting him at WR or DB? He seemed pretty adament about wanting to play WR, and I'm not sure that will happen with us.

I never fully buy the "come to Stanford, Northwestern, etc. for the academics" argument. You're still going to spend a huge part of your free time lifting and practicing. What really counts is the connections you get from top (ie: rich) schools like that, there's no way you aren't actually going to learn more at Harvard where he'll have a lot more time to actually do schoolwork.

and another thing. being excellent academically is something that the scholarship athletes in harvard focus on. its academics first and athletics second.
