Molk to Make Decision Before Fall

It's no secret that picking up quality offensive linemen is a huge need for Iowa State in the 2007 recruiting season. Dave Molk would be the perfect fit. Where do the Clones rank with this top prospect out of the state of Illinois? Find out here in this CN recruiting update on Dave Molk.

Iowa State has a priority of acquiring some big-time offensive line prospects in the '07 recruiting class and quite possibly, the number one guy on that list is Dave Molk, a 6'2, 270 pound lineman out of Lemont, Ill.


Molk started off the month of May being one of the hottest prospects in all of the Midwest, but in the past couple of weeks, the offers have been slowing down for the lineman.


"Recently things have been kind of slow. In the past two weeks, I haven't gotten a single offer. Before that it was really quick. I was getting probably two or three a week," Molk told CN on Sunday.


Molk also expressed his frustration with the recruiting process as a whole.


"It was going really fast and it was really fun going to new colleges and now it's more annoying," Molk said.


Molk doesn't want the recruiting process to affect his senior football season so he is currently planning on making a decision before the fall.


"I'm going to try and not have to deal with the August calling period. I want to get this over with and done before the next football season," Molk said.


With offensive line being the biggest need in this class for the Cyclones, Molk is definitely a priority for the Cyclones and right now, according to Molk the Cyclones have as good of a chance as any team in landing him.


"Iowa State is definitely still up towards the top of my list," Molk said.


Molk's list looks like this. He currently holds offers from: Iowa, Iowa State, Northwestern, Minnesota, Michigan State, Indiana, Purdue, Miami of Ohio, Northern Illinois and Vanderbilt.


Though Iowa State is still near the top of his list, Molk also said that he doesn't have a clear cut favorite at this point and time.


"I really don't have any favorites at this point," Molk said.


This is good news for Iowa State fans. It means that Iowa State is still in the ballgame when it comes to landing this top of the line prospect. With the lack of depth in the OL in Ames, Molk could see playing time immediately if he would choose to attend Iowa State, which is important to every big-time division one recruit.


Molk wants to major in business when he gets to college and he's taken note of Iowa State's top of the line business school.


"I've been to Ames. They have a great business school," Molk said.


Molk also was pleased with the football facilities in Ames.


"The facilities are all really nice. They're going through a lot of renovation and stuff right now with their sports. They basically have what everyone has. They are up to date."


Putting everything aside, Molk would arguably be the headliner in the class of '07 if he would choose Iowa State.


"I am an athletic lineman. I like to move. I'm quick. In college I want to be a very powerful and quick lineman," Molk said.
