    Madison Baier commits to Iowa State

    Hi Fanatics,

    I just got word that South Tama's Madison Baier committed to Iowa State today. Baier stands 6-foot-4 and led South Tama to its first 5-on-5 state tournament appearance last season.

    Baier averaged 13 points, nine rebounds and 4.5 blocks. Stay tuned to CycloneFanatic tonight for more about her commitment.

    I watched her play in the sub state game. Big, Slow and heavy. But is tall. conditioning is a problem at this point. hopefully she gets stronger and quicker could be a good 2 year player

    I disagree...I think for her size she is fairly mobile and skilled. I do agree that she will need some seasoning before she's ready to be thrown into Big 12 action but think there is potential there.



    Im just glad I have Homan as my bodyguard, Eustachy joked. If I ever make it real big and get to drive a limo everyday, hell be driving it. I thought he came off the bench like somebody was stealing his cow or something.

    I'm from around their area (South Tama), and they are coverd by our newspaper, but never paid attention. Definitely going to have to go back through some of them in the near future.

    Re: Madison Baier commits to Iowa State

    Interesting part near the bottom. As of April 3 (date of the article), the three schools that were "most prominently" recruiting her were Iowa, Drake and Marquette. ISU wasn't even listed.

    Re: Madison Baier commits to Iowa State

    Article says she blocked 102 shots, which was enough for third in 3A and ninth out of all the classes. It talked extensively about it. "Blocking a shot is one of the best feelings besides winning. If I'm not doing so hot on the offensive end and I need to get going, I get a block and I get pumped up right away."

    Also stated she was 2nd in her conference (Little Hawkeye) in rebounding (8.9 per game) and fourth in scoring (12.5 points per game). Not sure who has offered up to now, but her list from this article (in April) says she was contacted by many, most prominently Iowa, Drake and Marquette.

    I think I will trust the coaching staff and their judgment of her skills.

    Re: Madison Baier commits to Iowa State

    She seems to have a good attitude. She has 5-6 years to grow, learn and develop to contribute. You can't have too many post players. Nice find IanSmith.


    Weve got a pretty good football conference, and weve got a pretty good conference overall. Were still walking around with our heads held high and our chest out, about that. Paul Rhoads

    Re: Madison Baier commits to Iowa State

    I'll definitely have to check out a South Tama game or two this upcoming season.

    The commitment appeared to happen right after Malone verballed KSU, so I wonder if we offered her right after Malone was no longer an option.

    I love the stories about kids that were life long fans of a college and through hard work and skill their dreams come true. I love it even more when that college is Iowa State! I will be a fan of Madison just for that, good luck and keep working towards making your future dreams come true.

    I work with her head coach and assistant coach and they both talk about her developmental skills. She has tremendous upside and is a very hard worker. Coach Fennelly has a proven track record of developing this kind of talent and she will become a solid player for several years for the clones!

    Re: Madison Baier commits to Iowa State

    Can she play as a 6-4 point guard and pass over the top?
