"pete can put the ball in the hoe frommanywhere, so wwn pete gets rolling like that we know we need to get him the ball."

"i think athletic is one this class who can play multiple positio. that's whatathey like. a running back out of illinois to shaun beyer locally. they're going to bring him in as a tight end, but there's a chance thatate could end up switching." let's talk about shaun beyer, the cedar rapids kennedy tight end. he committed after the stute tournament. what's not to like about him? he was everywhere on both sides

10:19 pm
this season. "he just made a lot of progress as a kid who got a lot better as his high school career went on. and with kids committing so early now, sometimes kids like him can get lost in the shuffle. but it was that iowa stuck with him through the process, nebraska ended up offering him. i think he's got a really high ceiling. i think he's going to be a good college player." williams, an offensive lineman out of cedar falls. do you see him on the offensisi line or on defense. what would you say? "i think he's definitely offensive line. i think he's an interior guy that could end up at center eventually, depending on how his body deveveps. he's veve quick, he's another guy that's athletic. he just seems natural inside. he's a 275-280 pound kid, but he carries it really well. he's not a lumbering guy. i let't'talk about some of the guys coming in from out of state. the big one is cedrick lattimore, a defensive

detroitmichigan. what do you like about him? is he the speed rush guy that t owa's been needing for a long time? "i think he's definitely that guy. he's a really good basketball player too. he plays inside, obobously. he's a guy that has really high ceiling. another guy like shaun beyer that bloomed late in his high school career. he and chauncey gholston, his high school teammatat who's also coming here as a defensive end, our both really guys that are good off the edge and were a major need in this class. and that was addressed." who else do yoyolike in this class? "i like the quarterback, nathan stanley out of wisconsin i thought was really overlooked. he's a guy that wisconsin came in hard after. paul chryst was his first offer when he w w at piit, then iowa offered him, then he committed to iowa and was the first one in this class. i believe rivals may have bumped him up to a 4-star. so
