    Recruits in town

    I was out at Aunt Maude's last night and I saw CPR and Bobby Elliot walk in. Latter I found out that they were hosting 2 or 3 recruits.

    Is it typical for recruits to come into town during the middle of the week?

    Correction, there was a thread about a single recruit being in town. Sam is a mid year Juco. There were multiple recruits in last night if I saw right.

    Did some one tell you that they were hosting 2 or 3 recruits, or did you just make that assumption based on the number of kids you saw? Could have been the recruit and 1 or 2 players hosting the recruit??

    Re: Recruits in town

    Each recruit would have 1-2 hosts, keep that in mind. The last thing they would want to do is set a single recruit down with 2 adult coaches.

    Re: Recruits in town

    Thats fair, just thought I would pass the info on. At most it shows that CPR is still in ames working hard and not interviewing for other jobs.

    CPR and Bobby Elliott were in California checking out juco players in LA and SF the day after Thanksgiving. Looks like they had a good trip.

    Its funny that they still take the recruits to Aunt Maude's. I love the place but ever since my playing days they have been taking recruits there.

    I don't think he said they were taking them there...

    Personally, that's where I'd take a date, not a high school kid. And no "butt dragging".

    Who knew?

    Yeah, although the food there is really good, I don't know that I'd take a HS kid there. Probably better off at Hickory Park or Great Plains.

    Yeah, but isn't Aunt Maudes kind of what Ames is all about? I guess I thought so. Maybe I'm out of touch. I did see some at the bowling alley which I think it actually a pretty decent recruiting tool. Perfect games is a pretty fun place.


    It's all snark from here on out
