    Would be nice to get those two big guys, then we could afford to be really picky on the last two schollies.

    What does it mean when all 20+ schools are listed as having "medium" interest in Kyle Washington, but all have made offers to him? What would make their interest rise above medium?

    Also, CW only mentions that he is going to school in Connecticut, but the Rivals site says he is from Champlin, MN, so he might like to stay closer to home, particularly if Minnesota doesn't dial up their interest in him.

    Royce White needs to be doing some recruiting about how well we take care of Minnesota's best, especially when they don't take care of their own.

    Why no offer to Zach Hanson (according to Rivals)?

    The Rivals database isn't an exact science Cycsk. It's a good base to go off of but that's about it.

    I believe it is actually a measure of the prospects interest level in the school rather than the school's interest level. If they are all listed as medium it essentially means he hasn't listed favorites yet.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but I think the interest level indicates the interest level of the recruit toward that school not the other way around.

    So what moves a school's interest from "medium" to "high?" Official visits? A particular type of comment from a coach?

    I have no clue.

    Can Royce actually actively recruit?

    So, it is just the recruit narrowing his list? If so, then when he does, wouldn't those schools move to "high" and all others drop to "low?" Pardon my ignorance, but I haven't paid much attention to the Rivals page.

    We need to find a way! His "outcast in Minnesota finds the NBA with Iowa State" story is so compelling.

    Usually it only moves to high if the player has made a specific comment regarding that school being his favorite. More often you'll see the player list a top 5 and all others not on the list will drop to 'low interest'.

    Also, I believe Kyle Washington will be attending a different school next year for his fifth year. South Kent was the school named as a possibility if I remember correctly.

    I liked the fact that the school he attended last year was more known for academics than athletics until recently. It sounds like they really helped him in the weight room also.

    South Kent is what I saw. Didn't sound like its a done deal though. Just a "probably"
