Sunday Morning Recruiting Notes

The staff's weekend trip to Florida did not result in any new scholarship offers

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.

  • JUCO defensive end Dale Pierson (Pasadena, CA) was offered by Iowa State on Thursday. Because of scheduling conflicts, Pierson won't be able to make it to Ames for an official visit during the season, but he isn't planning on deciding between the Cyclones and Arizona until the season is finished, anyway.

    Pierson is on track to graduate in December and will have three years to play two seasons.

  • East Lake (FL) defensive end Hunter Snyder is hopeful for a scholarship offer from Iowa State. An official visit would come before any decision is made on his part. He has one offer from Florida Atlantic.

    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.

  • 2015 back Kez Flomo of Totino-Grace (MN) wants to get to Iowa State soon, according to recruiting analyst Brian Eldridge.

    "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.

  • 2015 offensive tackle Quinn Oseland (Sacred Heart Griffin, IL) took in the Iowa State-Iowa game but was unable to meet Paul Rhoads, Courtney Messingham or Chris Klenakis, he told national recruiting analyst Allen Trieu.

    "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.
