Fisher Twins Down to Two?

In need of some immediate help at offensive tackle for next fall, Iowa State continues to boost its standing with a pair of twins from Dixie State College in Utah.

The 6-foot-8, 320-pound Scott Fisher made his official visit to Ames last week, but his brother Paul was out of town and won't be able to take his trip to ISU until the month of January.

"I'm taking a visit to Iowa State on January 14th," said 6-foot-7, 330-pound Paul Fisher. "They actually called me and confirmed that (Sunday). I was out of town myself when Scott took his trip to Iowa State. I'm looking forward to seeing what the school's like and what they're offering me.

"My brother loved it and had a great time when he was down there. He liked the area, the coaches, and the atmosphere. I haven't really looked at Iowa State myself and don't really know first hand, but it sounds like a pretty good school."

Either way, it appears both brothers will be picking from the Cyclones or Wisconsin. Those are the only two scholarship offers they are entertaining, and have scheduled visits for both. The twins will visit Wisconsin together on the weekend of December 10th.

"The only two schools that are calling me right now are Wisconsin and Iowa State," Paul Fisher said. "I came to college here not expecting what was going to happen, so I'm happy with the outcome. Scott pretty much has the same options as I do. We've had some calls from other schools during the middle of the season, but haven't heard from them lately."

Although they'd like to continue their college careers on the same offensive line, that's not the only reason they'll be picking a school.

"That's not much of a factor right now," Paul Fisher said. "We're going to play it by ear and see what happens and see what we like."

The twins are being told they'll be given a chance to play right away at ISU and Wisconsin. The Cyclones have a glaring need at the position, with starting left tackle Cale Stubbe graduating.

"Both schools need someone at that position right now, and need someone to come in right away," Paul Fisher said.
