On Friday, Iowa added its second linebacker commit in a row as Cole Fisher became just the 4th defensive player of Iowa's 2011 commits. Fisher is an Omaha, Nebraska native and has been a Husker fan all his life. His father, Todd, player for Nebraska back in the early 1980s and his brother, Sean, is expected to be the starting strong-side linebacker for the Huskers this fall. So, for Iowa to get Fisher right out of Nebraska's backyard is nice...even though Nebraska hadn't offered him yet. Fisher is rated 2-stars by Scout and 3-stars by Rivals.

Fisher in High School

Fisher attends Millard North High School in Omaha, NE. It's the largest school in Nebraska and has a really strong football program that won a couple of State Titles earlier this decade. However, the Mustangs went just 5-5 last year losing in the first round of the playoffs.

Fisher plays running back and free safety for Millard North. Though he plays on both sides of the ball he excels on defense and was a 1st Team All-State selection last year as a defensive back.

  • Defense - 80 tackles (I couldn't find much...)

Quick Thoughts:
Fisher was rolling along getting some interest from schools when he tore his ACL during basketball season. Iowa had offered Fisher before his injury and as the coaches have shown in the past, stayed committed to Fisher. As a result, Iowa picked up a nice commit. Fisher should be ready to play for Millard North this fall, though he still needs to be cleared by the doctors, and maybe it'll be easier to find some information on him then.
