Opportunity Knocks for Fisher Twin

Although he'll be making a decision before a lot of others in the recruiting process, Dixie State College (Utah) offensive tackle Scott Fisher has made it a lot easier by narrowing his choices down to a pair of schools. Luckily for head coach Dan McCarney, Iowa State is one of those two programs.

However, McCarney will be going up against his old mentor Barry Alvarez, the head man at Wisconsin, for the 6-foot-8, 320-pounder's services. Fisher, who will be transferring to a Division I program at semester, made an official visit to Ames last week and gave a five-star review to the Iowa State program upon his return to Utah.

"It was very positive," said Fisher. "I was quite impressed with the whole trip, really. They treated me really well and took care of me. I could see myself there. I've narrowed it down to my last two schools, and right now I'd have to say Iowa State's at the top of my list right now.

"The campus is nice and the football coaches are great. I really like the strength coach and strength program. My wife was impressed with how the coached talked to her about the school, and very few schools have done that. It was very impressive overall."

Along with his twin brother and fellow Cyclone recruit Paul Fisher, Scott will take his second and final official visit to Wisconsin the weekend of December 10th.

While he doesn't want to make any choices before heading to Madison, Scott Fisher said it's going to be tough to match what ISU is offering.

"I was looking at schools that wanted me to play right away, and needed me," he said. "Iowa State presents me a great opportunity, because their left tackle (Cale Stubbe) is a senior. I know for a fact that I can go in and start right away. I can help the team tremendously. I know I've got a better chance there than I probably would at Wisconsin."

Fisher will sign his national letter-of-intent on December 15th, and is eligible to join his new team in time for spring drills in March. The Utah native was a first-team all-conference selection as a freshman at Dixie State College, but an injury kept him out of four games this season and he had to settle for second-team mention.
