    Denton Article

    Looks like he has an outside game, and he wins "Mr. Basketball" in Michigan. What's not to like....

    You should seriously try to get his name right in the title.

    Re: Denton Article

    I just thought it was an amalgamation of Henton and Dayton. Henton from Dayton = Denton.

    Re: Denton Article

    Kinda sounds like an Ejim clone to me. It's obvious that if he's on campus right now, ISU wants him. What I'd like to know is their longer-term plans. They have an open scholarship for this fall, but what does that do for 2012? You would think that they would be out of the running for Elgin Cook if they got Henton. It would also give them only two scholarships open for 2012. They are heavy after Niang and Okoro, plus have offered the Abrahamsson kid from Valley. Not to mention, the PG from Buckley's old school. Maybe Royce White is only a one-year guy?

    To me, it doesn't make a lot of sense to bring in Henton if you have a good shot at perimeter players like Abrahamsson and Okoro in 2012 and Jok in 2013 as well as a true PF in Niang in 2012. Especially when you just promoted one recruiter and hired another, solidifying an impressive recruiting staff. Why put the collar on them for 2012 for a kid that was going to Dayton?? Go get the LA Tech transfer and have that scholarship available for 2012.

    We're recruiting a HS kid, this must be a joke.

    It'd be nice to sign him up to get a classmate for Sledge. We have no idea how many scholarships will open up between now and next year.

    Should tell you how good Henton is, and why so many programs came after him when he decommitted.

    It's tough to know what is truly going on in Ames while residing 350 miles, but it appears that Fred get so many looks. That's a nice change for ISU basketball.

    Rhoads seems to be opening many more doors and getting early commits.

    I sure hope that Jackson gets the job done in the wrestling room.

    why are you worried about what makes sense to you if you haven't seen any of these guys play? there will be plenty of scholly's for 2013 and i'm sure a few for 2012 as well.
