    Oriakhi isn't going to happen. I'm hoping for Lockett and Sanchez would be a nice get, but Oriakhi has some damn good programs looking at him.

    Doesn't sound like he's interested in us though.

    Yeah i'm not sure why anyone ever thought Oriakhi would happen. The only connection we have there is Niang being teammates with him. He is from the east coast and chose an east coast school out of high school. To my knowledge we never recruited him out of high school. It's kinda pathetic that every single person that is going to transfer is talked about on here. We pick up transfers that are from the midwest that we previously recruited or that we have some sort of connection with. Oriakhi would not be in either of those categories.

    Re: Oriakhi and Sanchez not interested YET in Iowa State

    Lockett makes the most sense for one scholarship. We recruited him out of high school. He is from minnesota and wants to be closer to his mom. Minnesota has no available scholarships. He has inside information from Chance Creekmur and Chris Colvin about Iowa State. Sounds like a perfect match to me.

    Wayne Morgan was recruiting him to ISU way back when.

    Re: Oriakhi and Sanchez not interested YET in Iowa State

    For Minnesota lets just hope that Trevor Mbakwe comes back for his 6th year that he just got granted and also that none of their current players decide to transfer. If both of those things happen i think that Lockett is ours.

    I think Mbakwe is going to stay. Minnesota has made a great run in the NIT so far. They will be pretty good next year. Probably will compete for the Big 10 title.

    Pretty sure that they signed 2 guys for their class of 2012 assuming that they were losing sampson and mbakwe. So the only way they would have an open scholarship is if Mbakwe leaves and another player decides to transfer.
    If Mbakwe stays they will have to have 2 guys transfer to make room for one scholarship for Lockett.

    Re: Oriakhi and Sanchez not interested YET in Iowa State

    We haven't reached out to Oriakhi, so evidently we're looking elsewhere there, as you would think we would have at least contacted him (unless we did, and he's only listing some schools).
