    Niang, Okoro, and SDW signing tomorrow

    Congrats to the three for being cyclones...with the Harrison Barnes talk people forget our own team once in awhile..

    Really like this class and think all three will have significant roles while they're here...this is also one of the best freshman classes we've had here in awhile.

    Niang sounds pretty versatile and is very findamentally sound.

    Okoro doesn't have alot of info but he has really good offers and sounds under the radar given that he didn't play AAU...also sounds like a tough kid..play either 2 or 3

    SDW is a nice get by Mann and company..nice to see us getting back to Michigan ties as under Orr we got quite a few kids from there that were ballers...decent shooter and will help offset losing Allen after this year.


    EDIT: Made this post at 1 am so it means today
    A little off-topic...are we done with 2012 class or are we still seriously looking at guys?

    Looks like a very solid class. Very excited for Niang, I think he's gonna be one to remember.


    “You feel the floor give you a little tingle, man,” Iowa State junior point guard Monte Morris said in a private moment after the game, leaning against a wall in the bowels of Hilton Coliseum. “You feel it. You feel it. It’s real. You feel it on the court. It’s a tough feeling to explain. It’s a vibration. It gets you going.”

    He paused.

    “It’s magic.”

    Solid class, should make for some nice depth in 12 and 13. A pontential frontcourt of White, Railey, Ejim and Niang looks nice.

    Re: Niang, Okoro, and SDW signing tomorrow

    I'm very excited about this class, as I assume that Fred has loaded up with more players who play the style he wants to play and that fit within his system. And with lots of talent on top of that!

    Re: Niang, Okoro, and SDW signing tomorrow

    Really excited to see these guys! I like the fact that Naing can finish with the left or right hand around the basket. But he doesn't look like a legit 6-7? Haven't seen Okoro a whole lot but having offers from Arizona and Pitt tells me he's the real deal. SDW has a quick first step, good crossover, and can light it up from deep. Good job CFH and staff!!

    I like that our guys took all of the drama out of this right away. Apparently, no hand-wringing for us today.

    Okoro, I think, seemed to be on people's list of who may not sign. Never understood it, but I'm glad he's locked in. Just need GN to do his thing now.

    Hopefully we will hear from Georges Fan soon to put any anxiety to rest.

    He's already said via twitter that he'll be signing with ISU today. Nothing to worry about.

    I love the fact were pulling talent from the east coast and michigan. The pool is a lot deeper there than our big12 footprint.

    This. If it were one of the other guys, there might be the slightest reason to worry, but still probably none. But Georges? With the way he's been cheerleading for ISU since his verbal? There's no way he doesn't sign.
