Iowa State’s recruiting class is not highly ranked but coach Dan McCarney does not mind as loing as the Cyclones keep winning bowl games. The Cyclones signed 25 players to join a veteran squad returning from the team that won the Independence Bowl. He says there weren’t a lot of stars behind the names of some of the kids who played for him and are now in the N-F-L, but he says they’re some of the best kids to play in the Big 12. McCarney says he could care less about rankings or ratings. McCarney says the key is finding players with potential. He says they’ve done a good job of evaluating the players, and admits they’ve mistakes through the years, he says everyone has. But McCarney says they’ve assembled a fine class this year. With so many starters returning from last year this recruiting class won’t be counted on to make a big iompact right away. McCarney says they hope a number will come in an challenge for two-deep spots on the roster. He says it’s probably not realistic that many of the kids will come in and beat out the returners. But McCarney says the starters aren’t guaranteed a spot either and he doesn’t want to sell any of the kids short. Four Iowans are part of the class.
