    No more July recruiting?

    Sources: Conference Commissioners Association votes to recommend eliminating July recruiting - ESPN

    Interesting development and IMO it is actually not a good thing. I assume it's an attempt to lessen the impact of AAU on college basketball but in reality it will just hurt programs like ISU because it will make recruiting more expensive and we'll get less face time with the kids. Regardless though, it will be interesting to see the impact, good or bad.

    This would kill ISU at this point. We are starting to rebuild, and kids will not be familiar with the brand. No coach not sitting on the bench of a top ten program will want this to happen. It makes zero sense.

    Re: No more July recruiting?

    Guess I don't see how this will negatively effect ISU. I guess it depends on the situation. TJ has been in on some really good talent early but we lost them during the summer AAU season (See Tyler Zeller).

    I could see if we are still trying to either evaluate talent or lock a kid up this could be bad, but if we work diligently with the time that we are given we should be fine.

    Just remember, every other program out there will be in the same boat. And an offer from a top 10 school reads the same if the prospect got it during July as it does if he gets it in the fall.

    I don't see it as a big deal, I'm tired of hearing about all these kids" blowing up" over summer and they aren't really all that great.
