SIAP. Lazard posted on his Twitter that he will follow in the footsteps of his father and brother and play for the Cyclones. I can't say I'm surprised. Best of luck to him 364 days/year.
This was a kid ISU could not lose. Good for them that they pulled him in. They were definitely the favorite. I honeslty, never thought he'd be a Hawkeye so I'm not really disappointed. Time reel in Scheel, Piersbacher, and Render. I hope Scheel commits soon to show Render and Ross it's time to get the class started off right.
That's a helluva pick up for the Cyclones, would have loved to have him as a Hawkeye, but now we know, and can move on.
Its going to be interesting when LSU, Alabama, Ohio State, etc. offer Lazard in the next couple of months. With his exceptional size, play making ability and stats he accumulates, its only a matter of time until his recruitment blows up. When his junior season video gets out, there will be many big time programs after him. Congrats to isu and I'm sure they all feel great right now, but they are now in a very unenviable position of having to keep him committed for the next 14 months. He is by far their biggest recruit in as long as I remember and they have never been in this position before of having to fight to keep a highly rated player committed. Its a great feeling for isu fans but the next year is going to be nerve racking for them.
In before the delete.
We'll see you in 2025.
Great post here. I'm honestly a little surprised he made his decision so soon. I really thought he'd wait at least another month or two to see what kind of traction his junior film would get with some of the top programs in the country. It's obviously better for the Cyclones to have him commit than not have him commit, but like you said, there's a long way to go.
Inaddition to lazard, Iowa state also flipped Jake Campos on Saturday. Sorry if that was already posted. I hope Pierschbacher and Scheel arent seeing this as a sign to head to isu!

No fair, what did I miss? PM anybody?

I've said for a while it would be either ISU or a blue blood. It will be interesting to see what happens if say LSU offers.
agreed...I'm in the dark here...
Some idiot not from this board posted idiotic stuff that has no place on the board
No doubt, i knew isu would have a decent shot at landing him, but i never thought he would commit to anyone so soon. I read somewhere else that Campos' decision to flip to isu sped up his decision. Here is his quote: "Before Jake officially committed on Saturday I was already leaning towards Iowa State," Lazard said. "But once he committed on Saturday I was just 100 percent sure I wanted to because I knew how good he is and how good of a team we'd have when I get up there." He continued by stating that Pierschbacher was next, that he would be very active in recruiting other in state recruits and also hit up highly ranked players at camps and the Army Bowl.
Obviously, these two commitments are huge for isu, but their 2013 class was pretty good before campos' commitment. They continued to hit Florida (8 commits) and Texas (7 commits) hard to help fill this class. Ive said it before, but i really like isu's strategy when it comes to recruiting. They started out by getting low to unranked prospects from florida, texas and cali to a lesser extent because they were the players' best option. However, now that they have established good connects in these states, they are pulling kids that have multiple bcs offers. They are also still offering athletic kids that have low ratings and developing them into good players. If they are able to get the top in state recruits,while continuing to get talented players from the south, they are going to have some very good talent which sucks for hawkeyes fans. I still think that iowas 2013 class is superior to isu's, but they are closing the gap finally.
Lazzard is dreaming if he thinks Ross P. is going to ISU. Never going to happen. A lifelong Iowa fan, with an Iowa offer, and a bunch of other BCS offers, doesn't pick ISU. I don't care if a stud in-state receiver is going there.
Question for Todd, would Pierschbacher be attracted to the whole "lets bring all of the top in state prospects to school A" approach. I guess my question is if the Lazard commitment improves ISU's standing with him.
Iowa's luck with in-state blue chip WRs continues...
