    If Elgin Cook seriously weighs 280, call CPR and get him on the D-line!

    That second layup that Tavon took was pretty slick. Faked that guy out of his jock from way out.

    I'm going to guess that it should be 180. Chris should maybe get some more sleep.

    Wow. You're right on the sleep part! Thanks for pointing that out. The last thing we need is another Aaron Agnew.

    If he's that athletic at 6'5" 280, he's the tight end of Tom Herman's dreams--or the defensive end that stills CPR's heart.

    I'm excited about this class as I think it contains very good prospects in the back court and a tremendous athlete in Cook.

    Not to ruin the mood on signing day, though, but I think the elephant in the room has to be addressed. There are ten guys on this year's team that will have returning eligibility and will be on scholarship and we're bringing four guys in. The numbers don't add up and somebody is going to be the odd man out.

    1. This is our best recruiting class of guards since Stinson and Blalock

    2. I don't think its a given that McGee starts at PG.

    3. Sledge won't be a fan favorite by the time his career is done, he'll be a fan favorite after his first cap city game. Or when he wins the dunk contest at midnight madness.

    4. Cook may be an uber athlete, but its not like he'll be significantly more athletic than the competition we see in the new b12. I do think a kid like Cook will really excel in a fast break offense.

    5. I love the fact we have "over-signed." Turnover is a given, its nice to finally be proactively prepared for it.

    So cool that Elgin Cook is finally official on paper. Seems like we've heard about him and Melvin Ejim for so long. It's cool to see the good news turning into reality.

    Welcome to all of our new Cyclones! I think next year will be all sorts of special.

    Agnew was a freshman and lived in Frederiksen Court when I was out there. The thing I didn't get is he was always riding the bus. Dude, walk. You could stand to drop a couple pounds.
