    MBB Recruiting Notebook: 10-6 Update

    I've got a bunch of men's basketball recruiting notes to hammer though today. Enjoy.

    Also, one quick note that Fred Hoiberg and T.J. Otzelbeger will join Tron Smith and me on this week's Cyclone Fanatic/Wilson Toyota radio show. We'll all be broadcasting live at Wilson Toyota on Saturday from noon to 1. Stop by and say hello!

    - Elgin Cook and Anthony Odunsi (2011 commits) will be on campus for their official visits this weekend. I'll have feature stories on each in the coming days here on the site.

    What I've been hearing...

    - As far as recruiting goes, Iowa State is light years ahead of where they've been in a very long time. The 2011 class is pretty much done, barring some crazy circumstances. The staff is now focusing on the future, specifically 2012.

    - Tavon Sledge committed to the 2011 class and I don't think that Iowa State is even close to being done when it comes to bringing in New York kids. Keep an eye on the following New York area prospects for the 2012 class:

    Nkereuwem Okoro - 6-foot-4 guard out of St. Raymond's Prep
    * According to his Rivals.com profile, Iowa State has offered Okoro a scholarship.

    Daniel Dingle - 6-foot-6 forward out of St. Raymond's Prep
    * According to his Rivals.com profile, Iowa State has offered Dingle a scholarship.

    Kamari Murphy - 6-foot-7 forward out of Abraham Lincoln in Brooklyn. That's the same school that Sebastian Telfair and Lance Stephenson went to. According to his Rivals.com profile, Iowa State has offered.

    - Don't forget about these two non-NYC 2012 prospects. There's Negus Webster-Chan out of Huntington, West Virginia. Webster-Chan is a 6-foot-6 forward.

    Then, there's Ray Lee out of Romulous, Michigan. Lee is a 6-foot-3 guard, who Iowa State has offered according to his Rivals.com profile.

    I hope Webster-Chan is our top priority right now. He is going to be a stud.

    I hope we get Okoro, just to hear the announcers pronounce his 1st name.

    Chris - When you saying ISU is light years ahead of where we've been in years...do you mean in terms of talent already committed or on campus or in the players that are in a position to become Cyclones in 2012?

    Being done with 2011 already lets them make a lot more progress on the future at an earlier time. That's what I meant by that.

    Where do we stand with Paige? Is he too far out of reach now with Ol'Roy and Self calling? I keep hearing Roy is watching him, but where is our staff? With a recruit like that in our backyard, I'd hope our staff is attending his games/practices quite often.

    I think this situation relates to an article that was posted on here about recruiting and how coaches need to let go of the "maybe" and "hoping for" recruits and focus on the talent that is otherwise more interested your school.

    Which may not be the case, because I doubt any news source is going to publish a story about FH going to see a kid in his own backyard, like they did when Roy flew in from North Carolina to see Paige. What I'm saying is our staff going to see him is not going to generate news like Roy and Bill Self coming to town to take a look at him.

    I agree with the fact that Hoiberg may be letting go. I can tell you FH or his staff has not been at Linn-Mar's open gyms nearly as much as Iowa, Kansas or UNC

    OK, it's my day to do it......

    What about 2017? How many times must we ask before Fred gets after this class?!?!?!?!

    This is the kind of outrage that merits an e-mail barrage to JP.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!
