Seals' scouting report – Given an entire spring session to work his way into the mix, expect Fisher to earn a starting job at offensive tackle going into training camp. Like his brother, Scott has the strength and maturity to become an impact player early in his career. The fact that Wisconsin – a program that doesn't often recruit JUCO linemen – pursued him vigorously should speak volumes.

ISU offensive coordinator Barney Cotton on Fisher – "He and Paul were original signees to BYU and had returned from missionaries. They're both married and very mature. They're three and a half years out of high school. He's a big long-bodied guy that dominated on the outside."

Short-term outlook – Scott is the heir apparent to graduated senior Cale Stubbe at left tackle, and will be given every opportunity to win the job during spring practice. However, Scott still needs the full slate of winter workouts to put himself in position to earn the spot. But given the time he's already spent in a Division I program at BYU, that should be plenty of time for him to make an immediate impact.
