    Peter Jok to Iowa

    '13 MI CG Austin Price Says #Iowa Cancels Official This Wknd Because #Hawkeyes Expect Verbal from Someone else. Said it's Not EC Matthews

    WDM Valley Coach Jeff Horner confirms via txt that his '13 wing Peter Jok ( @Mzungu_24) officially visiting #Iowa this wknd.

    __

    Sounds like Jok may be Iowa's lone scholarship player for the 2013 class. Not sure how I feel about this one. The potential is most certainly there. I'm not sure there is a great risk involved in this one, though. A one-man class isn't going to break you, but it sure as heck can make you.

    Not sure, either. Very interesting decision by both parties.

    Boom or bust. Could be a great pickup for them or injuries could turn him into just an average player.

    Re: Peter Jok to Iowa

    they are claiming that just recently he has really started to regain some of his pre injury form

    maybe mccaffrey is taking him on before even seeing the guy play his senior season out of fear that if he is indeed back some bigger programs may come back again looking at him

    who knows its interesting to say the least

    Would have really liked to take a chance on him.

    Re: Peter Jok to Iowa

    I would rather have Jok than Billy Reader. Atleast Jok still has some potential. Reader doesn't sound like a guy with much potential. I get that we need bigs but you'd think we could do better.

    Jok could be a steal if he can get healthy.

    High risk high reward for sure

    I don't believe he has any offers besides Iowa right now. I know his major-level interest has picked up the last month or two, but not to the extent of schools offering at this point.

    You rather have Jok at center than Reader? You are probably alone on that one.

    I saw Jok play about 3 weeks ago. He was moving just fine. Looked pretty amazing to me. He was doing all sorts of running and cutting drills too.

    So take it Jeff H. at Valley means any great player in that program will get steered to Iowa.

    Yeah no kidding. Reader is 6'-9" 240#, Jok is a good shooting SF with a knee injury history.

    Based on what I'm starting to hear about Reader, I'd take him for depth.

    Re: Peter Jok to Iowa

    From what I know we haven't offered reader and we didn't offer jock so I'm not sure what all the fretting about. We are visiting/watching Chris McCullough, that would be my first choice.

    Re: Peter Jok to Iowa

    Meh. A verbal commitment now doesn't mean all that much anyway. If he's all the way back from his knee injury then the more prestigious schools will keep sniffing around.
