Any word on who our really big get is (posted on Blair's Twitter feed a few minutes ago)?
Its yahya black from minny DE
I’m really happy with got him. Aaron Witt is the guy in reeeeally like tho. I hope we nab him.
Will he play DE or OT?
Looks like he was recruited for defense. Could get big enough for DT I suppose.
A lot about Yahya Black reminds me of Mosai Newsom last year. The Hawks liked Mosai at DT ... but Mosai seemed to have his heart set on DE.
Yahya has great length ... so that could work really well at EITHER DE or OT. However, I could see him developing into a DT too. However, given Iowa's recruitment this year ... I see Bruce and Jones as a pretty strong duo at DT already. Of course, if Bruce retains his RB speed ... then he could perhaps manage to remain at DE (although I doubt it).
He's good but I would prefer Moore, Mostella or Craig.
Also, I believe Yahya is a Polasek recruit (not a Niemann recruit).
He said he really likes Iowa because of Coach Bell. I'm assuming he was the primary recruiter.
Thanks- I was referencing the Niemann tweet about "Big news coming" that appeared on Blair's twitter.
Not necessarily. As a DL recruit he talks alot to Bell but if MN Is Polaseks territory he could be lead recruiter.
Any clue how many DL we are taking? I think we land Moore.
I would assume that there is truth is both comments. Polasek was the lead recruiter insofar that the Yahya was in his recruiting territory ... whereas Bell may have been a co-lead recruiter because he'd be Yahya's position coach. Part of the ability to "land" these recruits is to supply the young men with a sense of belonging. Therein lies the power and importance of interactions with the position-coach.
The writer on the K-State side had rave reviews for this kid. I'm excited.
Lineman Yahya Black of Marshall High in Minnesota camped at K-State on June 2. From what I saw he was the best prospect in attendance, and that includes the five that walked away from the event with scholarship offers from the Wildcats.
It’s going to sound like hyperbole, but his body type and skill-set is reminiscent of a recruit that winds up at a blueblood program. I think he’s being that overlooked right now, and not just by recruiting services, but overall.
Why are you confident we get Moore? He's not scheduled an ov at IA...
Probably have a decent shot with Deonte Craig out of Indiana since he’s visiting on the 21st. I would guess they take two more on the DL for 5-6 total
He likes Iowa... we like him. I think we get him. Just a gut feeling. I think we get both he and Witt
Derek used to cover Iowa for Scout. Always had good info.
