    Georges Niang to visit Iowa State

    Iowa State Basketball Recruiting

    Recruiting an undersized 6'7 PF from Boston with mid major offers only. Interesting. I was hoping more for Phillip Nolan type prospects who are 6'10 four stars from milwaukee with high major offers. Maybe that's just me though.

    Re: Georges Niang to visit Iowa State

    I agree that the reviews I read on Niang have been less than stellar, but the staff must see some potential in him that others do not.

    Re: Georges Niang to visit Iowa State

    Not sure what to think, obviously his game skills are good, he was named tourney mvp on a team that has several prospects that could go D1....however, those game skills better be incredible because the athletic ability shown in this dunk tape appears less then stellar and thats exactly what espn's rating of him is.....very talented kid with every move in the book but very limited athletically and rebounds only his area.....one concern i have in recruiting un-athletic kids is the ability to defend the highly athletic kids we have to defend night in and out at the Big 12 level....

    You be the judge....

    Re: Georges Niang to visit Iowa State

    Not too excited about this, but more because this guy looks like a poorer man's Daniel Dingle, and I thought we sat pretty well with him. I would much rather have us push hard after an Anthony Bennet type player, athleticall gifted and raw in terms of skill, than a Niang, who is very skilled but very athletically limited.

    Niang reminds me too much of Doug McD. Maybe we should notify UNI of him. I hope we don't offer. He's the type that will dominate the MVC, but look bad if he had to play in the Big 12 every night.

    I think Anthony Bennett is the best player we are recruiting that I've seen(I have yet to see Okoro play). The guy is like Godfrey with a little more size.

    Re: Georges Niang to visit Iowa State

    Interesting move by the staff. But I guess I trust Fred's evaluation over mine...

    You think Doug McD would be a bad Big 12 player?

    McDermott would have been our best post player this year. He'd be ok in the Big 12.

    So just because you'd rather have Calvin Godfrey on your team, that means Doug McDermott would be a bad Big 12 basketball player?

    Re: Georges Niang to visit Iowa State

    Just because he is visiting doesn't mean he has an offer..Even if he is a fallback plan you want him to visit just in case


    "We embrace that challenge and what it presents to us. Im going to approach all 12 games this way: Were going to win them all. If we prepare and then go out and execute, were going to win all 12. Now how many are we going to end up with at the end of the year? I dont know, and youre right, I wont put a number on it."- Paul Rhoads on having the toughest schedule in the Big 12

    Re: Georges Niang to visit Iowa State

    Calvin Godfrey and Doug McD are not mutually exclusive. Doug is a very good player and my guess is he'd be a 4 year starter under Freddy.
