    Ross Travis

    Listed as considering ISU on ESPN's recruiting services. I hadn't heard anything about him until right now, what do we know about him?

    This was a guy McD was looking at. He plays the same position as Cook, and by most accounts is not nearly as talented, so my guess is the Cook commitment has him and us looking elsewhere. I don't think we pushed too hard, but Iowa fans are moribund about it.

    Another knock in the stomach to the 3 Hawkeye basketball fans out there. Uthoff choosing Wisky and Travis choosing PSU. I know those 3 fans thought they had a good chance of landing both

    As much as I would like to see them struggle, they will likely end up with Harris (a 4-star) and Oglesby (who may end up a 4-star and is Rivals Top 150).

    Oglesby is a lesser Matt Gatens. Solid player but far from game changer. And I still need to see them actually sign anyone before I can give Fran kudos. So far he is much better than Alford and Lick without doing anything

    I was under the assumption that Uthoff was recruited pretty hard by Fred also. Is that not true? Most clones even assured us that because of family connections and Fred's ability to land any Iowa kid he was wanted, he was close to a slam dunk for the clones. I am not worried about Iowa's recruiting. FM is a good recruiter, has a staff filled with experience and recruiting ability. We will get the recruits.

    I am not as sure as you about Harris but we will see.

    I'm not sure if he was or wasn't. But us losing out on Uthoff wasn't a big blow when we got verbals from all the players after him. Iowa is still sitting on nothing for 2011. It is going to start getting pretty thin for players soon.

    So far FM has signed two players. Basabe & Cartwright. Neither are game changers but has Fred signed any game changers yet. Having said that I think Basabe has a chance to be very good player

    Royce White?
    Chris Allen?
    Anthony Booker?
    Sledge?

    Harris is visiting Louisville in November - good luck to the hawks.

    Allen and White should be instant game changers and the JuCo will have an impact. Sledge, Cook, Godfrey, and perhaps McKnight should be "very good players".
    Basabe looked a year away in the scrimmage before the ISU game imo.

    no I think our recruiting needs to improve a whole bunch to get to the level we want, no top100 kids in this class, lost Uthoff. I don't look at transfers as big recruiting coups because at the time what teams have openings or are willing to take on the baggage transfers bring.

    I don't see iowa getting Tyler Harris, especially now that Louisville has offered. Both Tyler and Tobias Harris played with Tavon Sledge last year BTW.

    We never offered Ogelsby and we had Ross Travis in at our camp this summer.
