    I disagree. He was a legit Big 12 talent. However, his skill level was 2 years away from being Big 12 ready.

    Is this the same school that Gilstrap transferred from?

    Re: McKnight to Florida Gulf Coast

    Hopefully that will provide the right level where Eric can show off his skills. I always hate to see a player go elsewhere, because I really miss the days where a kid would come in and slowly evolve into a contributor, but I certainly understand. Best wishes to him at his new school.

    Re: McKnight to Florida Gulf Coast

    I wish Eric well too. I spoke with him at CCL last summer and he seemed like a nice kid. He was out of his league last year and really needed a RS year which he didn't get. Transferring gives him that year. I agree with SC that Eric was a couple of years away from contributing. I wouldn't be surprised if 3/4 years from now (his Jr/Sr year) if he matures into a good player. ISU just wasn't a good fit for him or us given the circumstances. Hope things work out for him though.

    Good for him.

    FGCU is a really new university, the first semester of classes started in 1997. They compete in the Atlantic Sun Conference, so I think it's plausible that if McKnight lives up to his potential he could easily be one of the best players in the conference by the time he's a junior or senior.

    Well, it sure seems true after watching him play against big 12 competition. He was lost out there. There is a reason he basically only got mop up duty last year when we had an extremely short bench, and it is that he is not a big 12 caliber player. Also, just look at the school he transferred to, if he was really a high major player don't you think other schools would have gone after him?

    That being said, I hope he does well.

    Re: McKnight to Florida Gulf Coast

    I think the best way to describe McKnight when he was at ISU was that he had HIGH major size/length, mid major athleticism, and a middle school skill set. Remember though that he was only 17 and probably not use to his body. I hope he does well at Florida Gulf Coast. They could have gotten a steal if he works hard on his skills
