    Harrison Barnes visits Iowa

    Wow...a little shocked here. It says this was his second visit to Iowa City. I guess I expected him to test the waters but not Iowa.

    I'm not too worried about Iowa.

    Re: Harrison Barnes visits Iowa

    Gotta look at who has the more upside in the next few years. Which program would this kid want to play for? The one his dad played for and is on the upswing or the rival who is probably at rock bottom right now. I would say Iowa is on the upswing because there is no where to go but up.

    Re: Harrison Barnes visits Iowa

    Not worried about this at all. He's ours.

    The first visit was the offer and this one was for a football game. This article is just a recap of his trip. The truth of the matter the kid will have many more schools calling and many more trips. We just need to chill and let him enjoy his recruitment.

    Re: Harrison Barnes visits Iowa

    You know if I was HS kid and all these people were courting me, I would tell the one coach I wanted to go with and just take the other schools up on their free trips and other offers. I would 100% make a trip to boulder to make sure I see what that school can offer me.

    Re: Harrison Barnes visits Iowa

    How many Official trips can a recruit make? Is it limited to a certain amount?

    Re: Harrison Barnes visits Iowa

    Recruits get 5 official visits, but at this point they are all unofficial, I don't think you can start taking officials until your junior or senior year.

    I think Barnes is an absolutely essential recruit for McD. I don't say that often, but I feel like we're bringing in a lot of very solid kids right now. Kids that can get us in the upper division of the Big 12 and really make us respectable. Kids like Barnes (who Jerry Meyer said will probably be a 5 star kid when the rankings come out) can take the program to a championship level when paired with somebody like Dykstra. Plus, you can't miss on a guy that is from Ames, coached by a former ISU player, and who you have unlimited access to because their kids play on the same AAU team. He has to close this deal.

    No pressure though.

    Re: Harrison Barnes visits Iowa

    Thanks for the info guys.

    I keep forgetting how young Barnes is, sophomore, correct?

    Re: Harrison Barnes visits Iowa

    This visit and his previous visit to Iowa were not on Iowa's dime. Wish they were.

    If Mac loses him to anyone but a top 10 program I will crap and then die.
