    Jameel McKay JUCO ?

    I saw on a recent Rivals story tha we were after a JUCO wing from Indian Hills CC. Of course I'm not a member so I didn't know who it was and did some "research". I looked at the IHCC roster and the only one with dreads (like the Rivals picture) was Jameel McKay. He's a 6'6-6'8 180-200?lb SF/PF. Hmmm sounds a lot like Elgin Cook (not just the dreads ) Has offers from Iowa State, Arkansas, Mizzou, and Memphis. Averages 14.5 pts and 7.5 rebs. Not sure if his name has been brought up before but it was an interesting find.

    Re: Jameel McKay JUCO ?

    Sounds like a solid player. Still has a year left. We need an amazing 2013 class with 5 guys for sure leaving, more than likely 6 with Royce and possibly 7 if Pelle commits and is a one and done.

    Love the recruiting strategy, and may need to try again for class of 2013. Love the staff's willingness to focus on HS players now, but need to keep these high-profile kids coming through the door.

    Yeah the transfer strategy seems to be working. They are laying the foundation as we speak. I dont think we will use the strategy again though...our 2012 class shows that Hoiberg is done with filling classes with majority transfers. I think maybe 2 Ju Cos and 4-5 high school kids would be good for the 2013 class. It would balance out the classes better too.

    2013-2014 season assuming no one transfers and that Royce leaves

    Seniors: Ejim, Railey, Bubu(not on scholly)
    Juniors: Gibson, Sledge
    Sophomores: Niang, Okoro, Dorsey-Walker, Long, Law(not on scholly)
    Freshmen???

    It would put 4ish of each in all the classes.

    Re: Jameel McKay JUCO ?

    I would be very surprised if we didn't take at least 2 Juco's/transfers between now and 2013. After next year, we'll need a couple of guys who are ready to contribute immediately.

    Re: Jameel McKay JUCO ?

    McKay apparently went down to Columbia for the game last night. I believe he holds offers from both ISU and Missouri.

    Re: Jameel McKay JUCO ?

    I saw this kid play against Iowa Western and he's definitely a big time athlete.

    Re: Jameel McKay JUCO ?

    I will hopefully get a profile page up on him soon, but here is the latest info on him:

    JuCo Jameel McKay (Indian Hill CC) lists offers from Arkansas, Memphis, Missouri, Iowa State and Wichita State. He did watch last nights' game in Columbia as he does hold offers from both, he seems fairly open at the moment.
