With kids like this recruiting started 3 or 4 years ago, Freddie got in the game too late to make a serious run at Paige so IMO he knew resources could be better used to go after other kids. It was a smart business move.
He'll learn when ISU is in the top 5 next year and making a run at a championship.
its a shame that the state of the iowa and isu programs have been so abysmal that neither program had much of a shot to land two of the best prospects to ever come out of iowa in barnes and paige. makes you wonder if we were a legit big 12 contender (and stable in terms of coaching) if we could have landed barnes and/or paige. if i recall, barnes was actually interested in isu, but we had mcdisaster with one foot out the door.
He's a good player, but I've never been McD AA impressed by him. Congrats to him I guess.
I've seen him quite a bit. When he is forced to take over he can be awesome but he doesn't force the issue. I saw him drop 46 on Prairie because he had to. At UNC I don't expect him to be a big scorer until there are games where he really needs to.
He's more substance than style and is very deserving.
