Purdy led the Big 12 and ranked fourth nationally in passing yardage (306.3) in 2019. He also ranked fifth in the nation in total offense (325.5).

  If any Iowa State football player has grown more than the Florida native, please provide examples. Between his freshman and sophomore seasons, Iowa State coach Matt Campbell even said "it looked like he had a tire under his tummy. Now, he looks like a statue of what a defensive end should look like - the tire's gone." Campbell relayed that at last year's Big 12 Media Days - and Bailey didn't disagree with that assessment. "I was probably 20 pounds overweight," he said, shaking his head in bewilderment that he'd even let his body go that way. "I didn't take my nutrition seriously until after my freshman year." Bailey starts the season with 18 1/2 sacks - the same way he started the last time he prepared for a season-opening game. He played all right against Northern Iowa, Iowa and Lousiana-Monroe.

He went down in the conference opener at Baylor - his 37th career start in a row. And now he's back, full throttle and ready to finally own that record outright. "He's come back in the best shape I've seen him in; he's in the best shape of his life," Campbell said last week. "He worked tremendously hard over the last three months while he was at home in Jacksonville." He's added muscle and structure to his 6-foot-2, 261-pound frame. He's got a fresh outlook after missing the last nine games of 2019 and the 2020 spring. He's way removed and far more mature than the JaQuan Bailey who made a boneheaded play against Texas when he was a sophomore. "I will never, ever forget that play," Bailey told me last season. "A lot has happened since then. I'm a totally a different person. I'm a totally a different player." - Des Moines Register

  2020 PRESEASON BILETNIKOFF AWARD WATCH LIST: Charlie Kolar, Iowa State, TE,...Without a doubt, Kolar is one of the best tight end targets in the country in 2020, earning second-team All-America accolades by the FWAA and first-team All-Big 12 kudos after a breakout season in 2019. A native of Norman, Okla., Kolar was one of eight semifinalists for the award in 2019. He led all Big 12 tight ends in receptions (51), receiving yards (697) and receiving touchdowns (7). His 697 receiving yards broke ISU's season record for tight ends and ranked sixth nationally among FBS tight ends. Kolar had five 70-yard receiving games in 2019 and 36 of his 51 catches went for first downs or touchdowns. - Iowa State Football

  2020 PRESEASON DOAK WALKER AWARD WATCH LIST: Breece Hall (So.), Iowa State,...A native of Wichita, Kan., Hall led the team in rushing (897), averaging 74.8 yards per game to rank fourth nationally among true freshman backs. His 897 rushing yards is the second-best total by an ISU freshman in school history. Hall broke ISU's rookie record by leading the team with nine rushing touchdowns.

Hall saw limited carries in his first five games, but averaged 101.6 yards and had all nine rushing touchdowns in the last eight games of the season, including four 100-yard efforts. In Big 12 play, Hall was second in the league in rushing, averaging 95.0 yards per game. Hall also proved his versatility by catching 23 passes for 252 yards. His 1,149 all-purpose yards in 2019 is second-best among ISU freshmen and his 256 yards from scrimmage vs. Texas Tech was the ninth-best single-game total in school history. - Iowa State Football

  In essentially just eight games last season, Hall rushed for 897 yards on 186 carries. Breaking that down, the true freshman averaged 21.0 yards in the first four games, and 101.6 yards during the final eight. Now that he's figured out college life and big-time football, he'll get a full dose of whatever the schedule permits. The acclimation process of being a true freshman is over. "Breece is maybe one of the most gifted, true running backs that I've had the opportunity to be around," coach Matt Campbell said last week. "He's got very similar qualities, as far as skills, to David Montgomery and Kareem Hunt."

Montgomery, who dazzled ISU fans with 2,925 yards during three seasons between 2016-18, is the starter for the Chicago Bears. Hunt, who Campbell coached at Toledo, plays for the Cleveland Browns. "What allowed Breece to take a step forward was maturity," Campbell said. "It's hard as a true freshman to step on campus and know what the expectations and standards to live by day-in and day-out are. "As he matured through the season with those expectations, that God-given ability he had really started to show through. "He made a huge impact the second half of the season. He's got a bright future." - Ames Tribune

  Brock Purdy would wake up every morning, gather with his father and brother and open up the Bible. After two seasons of the intense competition, scrutiny and physical demands of being Iowa State's quarterback, Purdy realized that the pressures had built inside him to a level that was not helpful, and now, when a Florida spring break vacation became a COVID-19 pandemic exile from his home and campus, Purdy set about finding both a reset and a perspective to help bear that burden in the future. So he turned to his faith and his family, pondering questions bigger than how to read a disguised coverage or the best way to dissect a defense.

"I'm a man of faith, so my father, my brother and I every single morning would just read the Word, talk about our faith, understand what our purpose is here in life," Purdy said during a teleconference on Thursday. "Especially with everything going on, for me to be able to step back and understand life's not all about football and sports." Purdy came to Ames as a well-regarded recruit but was third on the depth chart in 2019 before injury and ineffectiveness at the quarterback position put him on the field against Oklahoma State that October. Since then, he's thrown for 5,695 yards and 43 touchdowns while completing 66.3 percent of his passes and throwing just 14 interceptions to become a Heisman Trophy contender and first-round NFL draft prospect. - Des Moines Register
