    RECRUITING: New JUCO target for 2013?

    I'm hearing rumblings that Iowa State is actively recruiting a JUCO big man out of the College of Southern Idaho named Billy Reader.

    Reader, a 6-foot-9, 220-pound sophomore, attended Montana last season (when he was a freshman).

    Reader apparently redshirted the 2010-11 season, transferred away due to academics and is now at Southern Idaho.

    There isn't a lot out there on him. Here are a few links. I've been trying to get in touch with him for weeks but haven't had any luck.

    A Reader is a Leader, or so the sign at the library says. I would think that would bode well for him.

    NOT too exciting. Obviously I trust ol Freddy, but theres nothing too intrigueing sounding about him. I must be missing something.

    Had to transfer away from Montana due to academics? Hope the kid got his priorities straightened out while at JuCo.

    I've heard that he's a "tough guy." Kind of a Jared Homan type of defensive game near the basket. That's about all I know about this kid. I'm not sure if Iowa State has offered or not. I'll keep digging around.

    I would start with "I've never seen him play" and just go from there.

    Iowa State will need a banger type to fill Booker's role. It's tough to find 6'9 guys. Amardi is a start, but the Cyclones could use another big to rotate with Niang, Gibson and Amardi. Ejim will be around to play the big forward spot as well, but he is obviously under-sized on defense. If they could get this kid and Hogue, that would be a good fit. Getting one of the highly-touted HS kids would also work.

    Here's my point. Prior to about an hour ago, you had no idea who this guy was. Now, after 3 links and a few statistics, you've rendered your verdict that he's not intriguing (that's the way it's spelled, btw) and that you "must be missing something." Well, to put it bluntly, there's an ocean of things that you're missing.

    Yeah, i don't see anything to get jazzed about but would love to see some tape on this guy. Never know till you see him play I guess. We don't want another big guy just to have a big guy.

    Oh great, now we're going to become JUCO U instead of Transfer U. Why can't we become high school U like everyone else?

    Yeah, you aren't on the coaching staff. You don't have a clue what goes on behind the scenes. But I imagine you're missing more than just that.
