    Mike Gesell

    Anyone know what the status is on this kid's decision? Is Coach Hoiberg going hard after this kid still? I know we are pretty deep in the PG position but can you really pass up on a kid with this kind of talent?

    Re: Mike Gesell

    Hoiberg has never gone hard after him and ISU has not offered him since Fred took over

    Why do you keep saying this? Rivals shows an offer with HOIBERG as his recruiter. There was an article about Gessel checking out ISU a few months ago. Hoiberg did offer. You are thinking of Wesley Staten, who is not the same guy.

    Because it's true. That rivals offer was entered when Greg McDermott was the truth. Fred Hoiberg has never recruited Gessell.

    Wrong. I am going to trust the article that Paul Clark wrote on this one. You are thinking of Staten.

    Trust me on this. We are not recruiting Gessell. Paul Clark is as connected with the MBB program as you are.

    Its his job to know this. Are you collecting a check for this?

    It's his job to appear as if he knows this. I have no idea who's right here but Paul isn't paid to be correct.

    The last article on CR about Mike Gesell was almost a year ago. It was last August. No articles since.

    We are not recruiting Mike Gesell. It's not hard to see either. Iowa State recruiting news is blowing up everywhere. Fred and the assistants are making waves and are all over twitter. ISU is watching player X and player Y. How many tweets on Gessel? Zero. And why? B/c we are not recruiting him. You can argue with me all you want but it's 100% the truth

    I am not arguing about the recruiting part so much as the offer. I believe the offer was real, as Clark did the interview, asked him, and he said he had one. There was no reason to lie.

    ISU is getting who they want on the recruiting trail, but if Iowa lands Woodbury and Gessel, they will have two highly ranked 4 star in-state guys coming in. That is pretty impressive. But as they say a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. We have two guys committed, and that is great.

    He had an offer from the previous staff. He talked to Rutter a bit when Hoiberg took over but had not talked to Fred. He doesn't have an outstanding offer from ISU.

    Woodbury is a big time prospect. Gessell, not so much. I think his best offers to date are Iowa, Nebraska, Drake, Creighton, and Utah. For a top 100 player he doesn't have close to the offers of a Niang or Okoro. He reminds me a bit of Grant Gibbs from Linn Marr. Top 100 player with not great offers (until last second)

    Here is a May 2011 update. No mention of ISU:

    Collegiate Hoops: Catching Up With 2012 Guard Mike Gesell

    Gesell may be a half-step slow for a B12 PG. Good prospect but the top high-major programs are not exactly recruiting him that hard given his ranking and his current list. He is a very good student which is why Stanford is interested in him as well as Abrahamson and possibly Woodbury.

    Gessell, technically, is not an in-state guy for Iowa or Iowa State.

    He can spit and hit Iowa, plays for an Iowa HS, and an Iowa AAU team. For all intents, he is an in-state recruit.
