IC Scout Combine - ISU Preview - Part Two

On Saturday in Iowa City some of the best high school football players in all of the Midwest will be at the Scout.com combine being held. Among them will be some of Iowa State's top recruiting targets in 2007. Find out who right here in this CN feature on the IC Scout Combine. This is part two of a two part story.

Tyler Nielsen – 6'4, 215 pound LB – Humboldt HS – Humboldt, IA

 

Nielsen is the other big time Humboldt recruit that Iowa State is going after in the class of 07. He doesn't have an offer yet but has seen significant interest by both Iowa and Iowa State early in the process. Nielson is also interested in, Wisconsin, Kansas State and Purdue.

 

"I'd say the two schools (Iowa and Iowa State) are equal," said Nielsen in a CN interview last month.

 

In his junior season, Nielsen recorded 95 tackles for a Humboldt team that was eliminated in the first round of the playoffs.

 

Niles Paul – 6'1, 200 pound WR – Omaha North – Omaha, NE

 

Paul is the teammate of Phillip Banks and has already committed to Nebraska, but Paul will still be in attendance on Saturday. Other teams, including Iowa State will more than likely still be after the standout wide receiver when the recruiting season is in full force. He is considered to be the top prospect in the state of Nebraska and is the nephew of Green Bay Packer and former Husker, Ahman Green.

 

Ben Porth – 6'5, 240 pound OL – Gretna HS – Gretna, NE

 

Porth is another top prospect out of the state of Nebraska that Iowa State is showing early interest in. He has good size at a position that the Cyclones will be hitting hard in next year's class. Porth is still offer less but this combine could up his stock drastically. Iowa State is joined by Kansas, Kansas State, Colorado State, Nebraska and Wyoming having interest in Porth.

 

Colin Sandeman – 6'1, 188 pound WR – Bettendorf HS – Bettendorf, IA

 

Sandeman is by far the most hyped recruit in the state of Iowa this upcoming season. This athletic wide receiver will be a hot commodity at the combine on Saturday as he'll receive as much attention as anybody else in the field. Iowa State was the first to offer Sandeman but they are now joined by Iowa, Kansas and Wyoming to offer.

 

Alex Sandvig – 6'2, 175 pound WR – Valley HS – West Des Moines, IA

 

Iowa State has to be the front runner in the race to get this Valley recruit who is the younger brother of Zac Sandvig, a 2006 Iowa State commit. Sandvig is a lot like his brother. He's very athletic and I'd be extremely surprised if he's not wearing a Cyclone uniform in college.

 

Tyler Sash – 6'1, 190 pound S – Oskaloosa HS – Oskaloosa, IA

 

Chris Ash and Iowa State have been after this local athlete for quite some time now. CN spotted Ash at Sash's basketball games last winter and the attention was followed up by an offer a few months back. Iowa State is still the only school to offer Sash but expect an offer from Iowa in the near future as well. All sources CN has talked to indicate that it would be extremely surprising for Sash to go elsewhere. In his junior season, Sash racked up 49 receptions for 1,008 yards with 12 touchdowns. He's also an attractive basketball prospect who could see the court at ISU. Expect an early commitment from Sash.

 

Caleb Walter – 6'4, 200 pound QB – West Branch HS – West Branch, IA

 

Walter is another young quarterback that Iowa State is showing early interest in. This position has been in good hands for some time at ISU but the coaches want more. In 11 games last year, Walter completed 101 of 172 passes for 1,625 yards, 20 touchdowns and five interceptions. He also ran for 534 yards. Walter currently doesn't hold an offer but that should change after some summer camps.
