According to 247 and Rivals he had 2 offers, one from ISU and one from Iowa.he had no FBS offers and not many good FCS offers.
His problem was playing 4A in HS and he also admitted in recent interview that he didn't do any camps or combines to gain more attention from colleges. The other thing I recall was his conditioning coming out of HS ... he got here a little overweight. So I agree he has been an underdog, but there were reasons ... and to ISU's benefit !!!! And now to Jaguars !!
