Had it confirmed the staff's weekend trip to Florida did not result in any new scholarship offers, which becomes the nail in the coffin to the story of Raines (FL) Brian Burnett committing to Iowa State.
For the record, I don't believe Burnett announced his commitment on Twitter with malicious intent or was trying to make me look stupid when he confirmed to me three times over the phone that he was offered Iowa State. He just got ahead of himself.
On that note, it would be a major shock if Burnett ended up a Cyclone after all this. If an offer was being contemplated, it isn't anymore.
Pierson is on track to graduate in December and will have three years to play two seasons.
Snyder's film is intriguing, to say the least. He's a skinny, 6-foot-6 kid who need to add at least 20 pounds to survive at defensive end in the Big 12. He looks a step slow coming out of his stance but compensates with some nice finesse moves; he's also got a massive reach. Could be a good tight end.
"I love the Iowa State training facility," Flomo told Eldridge. "I love their offensive formations. Their football coach seems like a cool dude. And they have pretty cool jerseys. I've never been to Iowa State, but I plan to in the future."
The Cyclones currently have two committed running backs in the 2014 class, Tommy Mister and Martinez Syria. James White, Shontrelle Johnson and Jeff Woody will have their eligibility expire after this season and Aaron Wimberly's will after the next. The Cyclones have plenty of opportunity in their backfield.
"I didn't get to see much of the campus but the facilities were nice and seemed to be very similar to Iowa," Oseland said. "The game was packed, loud and it was a great game. It was a fun time."
Oseland is 6-foot-6 and 300 pounds.
