    Juco visitor this weekend

    Tyler Community College Sophomore Daniel Edozie will be on an unofficial visit this weekend.

    Here are his rivals and ESPN profiles(couldn't find any high school profiles for him):

    Daniel Edozie - Yahoo! Sports

    Basketball Recruiting - Daniel Edozie - Player Profiles - ESPN

    Edozie is a 6'8 240 lb PF from Compton, California. He is originally from London but moved to California in middle school. He averaged 5 ppg and 5 rpg as a freshman at Tyler C.C. He is known for playing good defense and blocking shots.

    Here are his stats from last year:

    NJCAA | Colleges | Tyler Junior College | Basketball I | Daniel Edozie

    He verbally committed to Minnesota 3 weeks ago. Then 2 weeks ago there was a mutual agreement between Edozie and Minnesota that he should open up his recruitment again.

    In his high school career he was at 3 different high schools and was under the radar. Fresno State, Eastern Illinois, Eastern Washington and Idaho State were the schools recruiting him the hardest. Iowa State was recruiting him out of high school but did not offer.

    Before he verbally committed to Minnesota he said that Oregon and Oklahoma were showing interest in him but hadn't offered yet.

    He would be a Junior for the 2013-14 if we land him.

    Hmm, not good enough for MN, not sure I want. But I'll trust Fred.

    Re: Juco visitor this weekend

    I'd say its pretty common for Jucos to not get those offers after HS, but improve. I could be wrong, but I don't think all jucos are kids who couldn't make grades.

    This could be a case of Minnesota landing or close to landing a bigger recruit and decided to bank this for either him or the 2014 class. I like the idea of a big body that has great defense. Exactly what we need, got enough scorers around him.

    If you ask the basketball analysts outside the state of Iowa I think you would be surprised to hear their responses. Iowa was pegged as a preseason top 5 team by one ESPN analyst and is ranked in the vast, vast majority of preseason top 25 polls

    This. It's all about matching up needs at this point. For ISU, we'll have a pretty stocked backcourt with Naz, SDW, Thomas, Monte along with either Bubu or Maurice Jones to play the 1-2 positions.

    Wings of Hogue and Okoro, plus sometimes Ejim.

    We'll have plenty of front court scoring by Niang, Ejim and Percy. Then you add guys like Armardi and Edozie as bruisers that can rebound and defend in the paint.

    Edozie is an underwhelming target. As mentioned, he may just be a puzzle piece but if GMac were still here we'd be up in arms over a guy like that. Fred has earned the benefit of the doubt.

    With Gmac, we'd be counting on this guy starting, averaging 30+min/game and leading our post scoring, because all of our other post players would be transferring.

    I'm going to assume the exchange that Thomas and Morris shared on twitter led him to assume that. Thomas said "he'd be there on Sat"
