    No mention of Elgin for 2011 class

    Just watched the hoiberg show and they talked about our incoming recruits, but they didn't mention Elgin at all.

    Re: No mention of Elgin for 2011 class

    Well, lets do our best to get him here for the 2012 class. I'm just worried he'll do great at a prep and decide to go elsewhere. If we can have a good season, maybe he'll be convinced that this is the place for him.

    The optimistic view is that Fred may not want to comment until the situation is certain.

    When Sledge signed and committed, that was the first clue that Cook may not qualify and instead go the Prep School or JUCO route. When Phillips left, then that left a spot open for Lucious. Hopefully, Cook still ends up at ISU.

    I will be very disappointed if Elgin never plays for us. I have been waiting to see him play since he committed in 2009.

    Agreed. I've been looking forward to Cook for a long, long time.

    IMO, Cook would be the last of the 2011 recruits to see playing time.

    That doesn't mean he wouldn't turn out to be one of the stars of the class.
    His position isn't a high need position.

    Re: No mention of Elgin for 2011 class

    Well hopefully Cook can get his grades and life in order. I am encouraged by the rumor that he is in Texas. At least he and his parents are trying to do something different, rather than same ole, same ole.

    I hope that 1-2 yrs at prep school or JUCO will get him back to Ames. His highlights were pretty impressive. 6'6", strong to the hole, athletic dunker.

    Re: No mention of Elgin for 2011 class

    As mentioned in the previous thread, things like this rarely end well for ISU. Rip me all you want, but I'll be surprised if he ever sees the court at Hilton.

    This is the Luscious scholly IMO.

    Cook likes us. So that is good.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    Re: No mention of Elgin for 2011 class

    I'd say Fred not mentioning Cook means it's not a done deal either way. Definitely in question but still has a chance. Personally I hope he does go to Prep school next year. I know there's a risk of losing him but I'd rather risk losing a kid and see him come in with a stronger academic foundation than see him come in being set up to fail.


    and I'm all out of gum.
