    Does the Archibald hire mess with Brackens at all

    Does anyone know if Damon was Craigs primary recruiter? Is Brackens Very solid with us or could Damon and Reggie Theus persuade him still? Anyone know

    From what I know/have heard, McDermott was recruiting him while at UNI. As far as I know, he's McD's.

    I know he is McD's but ISU was in on him also when McD was still at UNI. Hopefully you guys are right.

    He is a good player, I would imagine he likes the idea of being in a big time conference. Stinnett on the other hand was very close with Archibald and could look there, but I really have lost interest in Stinnett anyway. Kind of concerns me that with an extra year of recruiting attention he failed to garner offers from anyone else but Idaho.

    He chose GMac & ISU after Arch left... I am not losing any sleep. Disagree on Stinnett. He is my top priority.

    Not a chance Brackins will leave!!! Coach Otz was Craig's primary recruiter. Brackins is a Clone because of his relationship with TJ, a relationship that pre-dates TJ's days a an ISU coach. Rest your minds, Brackins isn't going anywhere. Just be thankful that Coach Otz came to ISU or Brackins would be somewhere else with him.


    Psyched about the Clones!!!

    I agree, Brackins is very excited to be coming to ISU and nothing will change that, period!

    None of our current roster or recruits will defect, the only possibility (and I haven't asked this of anybody yet, just a what-if) is that Stinnett would look at NMS now but I still doubt even that would happen.


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    It was often said that Arch and Stinnett were very close so I wouldn't be surprised at all if they have a slot open and a need for him.
    Why do you still consider Stinnett to be the most important target? After an additional summer of play no other team has offered him, his play this summer was not exceptional, and we have other needs, especially if Garrett committs as he is more of a slasher, similar to Stinnett. Garrett has similar abilities, similar if not better measurables, and is a true point with a ton of upside, Stinnett on the other hand really seems to have leveled off.

    Is it true that he is a McD's All-American. It seems real early for them to already decide the McD's All-American teams.

    Since Brackens commmitted to Iowa State long after Archibald left, I don't see what the problem is.
