    Pelle "a long shot" to become eligible

    According to an unnamed DI head coach quoted in this Zagsblog item:

    I dont think its impossible, the coach said. Hes got a lot of work to do. Its a long shot.

    Re: Pelle "a long shot" to become eligible

    How does a kid not make sure he is eligible when he has a freakin year to do it. Why doesn't he just go play in the D League or overseas? Also, I wonder what on-line courses he is taking and if the NCAA will even accept them?

    Re: Pelle "a long shot" to become eligible

    If he cant even pass high school classes two years in a row, no way in hell he'll pass college classes. With all these schools jumping on board, and the fact that he may be eligible makes it more of a long shot every day that he will land at iowa state.

    My guess is he is trying to do the absolute bare minimum so he can play in college for 1 year.

    This really isn't very surprising, that's been this kids situation the whole time we've been recruiting him. There is a reason why a 5 star center doesn't have the offer list you'd expect.

    Nothing has changed though... so its not any more of a long shot. This has been known since day 1.

    In most cases like this the kid is either not very bright....totally unmotivated.....or worst case scenario.....a combination of both.

    Absolutely. This is also probably why his visit has been delayed. Fred most likely will not hold a scholly for him. If he can get Lockett and Uthoff, he will. If there is a scholly left he can offer it to Pelle. Even if he does manage to become eligible, there is no guarantee that he still will be eligible by the time the conference season rolls around.

    He's a long shot to spell eligible, let alone be eligible.

    I would have thought Texas Tech would have been all over him since their standards are so easy.

    If Bill Self can get the Morris twins and Sharron Collins eligible FH should be able to get Pelle eligible.


    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

    I'm more in the thinking of Derrick Rose @ Kentucky. Didn't someone else even take his ACT's?
