    Lets hope everyone on both sides stick together and get him to ISU.

    Well, best of luck to him. Hope he ends up here! Didn't like the "still wants to be recruited by Iowa State" part of the comment, but that could be me taking it the wrong way, with the follow-up statement to that.

    That seems to be the polite way to say either "I still want the chance to go to ISU" or more likely "It's not you, it's me."

    I've really looked forward to seeing him for a long time, and maybe we still will, but I definitely won't lose sleep thinking it's going to happen.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.

    He'll get things straightened out. Hopefully he ends up here eventually. If not, good luck to him.

    You guys are reading into it too much. The kid had a tough senior season physically and academically. The family feels like this is the best move for him. Hard not to respect that. Nobody is mad at anybody and from what Mrs. Cook said, she fully anticipates Iowa State to be recruiting Elgin from here on out, just like they have for the last three years.

    Re: BASKETBALL RECRUITING: Elgin Cook to attend prep school

    Didn't get shot at and have to move to Texas for his safety? Along with his early academic struggles and injuries the prep school route is probably best for him. This isn't just Cook snubbing ISU because he doesn't want to go here.

    Well...at least it's final and we can kill the speculation on where the scholly will come from if we get Korie.

    Best of luck to Elgin getting academics in order and if he still wants to be a Cyclone in 2012 and CFH wants him on the team I'll be happy.

    Whoa, I'm not saying there's anger on anybody's part. This just looks to my amateur eye like one of those situations where a young man goes a different direction.

    I hope he doesn't, and I'll still love to see him here if that works out. Even more than I love coupons.

    Tough break for us, but I wish Elgin all the best. Hopefully, Elgin stays interested in Iowa State.
