    So were we really in the mix to land this guy?

    Thumbs up to the staff for recruiting players like this.

    It would be nice if we could get into Michigan and actually take players that Michigan and Michigan St are also recruiting. Tough task though, one would think if those guys are calling, it's probably not gonna happen.

    He plays basketball at Michigan. He's a freshman. Has been very good thus far. Not sure why they brought him up though, kinda random check in on someone we were once recruiting who didn't commit to us

    I'm a Michigan fan, so that is why I knew about his shooting.

    And that night's performance drove is percentage down. It has been rumored that any time the ball touches the rim on a Stauskas made three, it's only worth two, just to make things fair. They have one 5 star freshman and a one 4/5 star freshman and Stauskas is out playing both of them right now. He would have been a great get for ISU.


    It's all snark from here on out

    Re: Nik Stauskas

    He's playing great, would have been a great get but I'm okay with the shooter we have coming next year , as far as Fred's recruiting, I think he's just getting started. Recruiting the really good kids can be a 3-4 year process in some cases, so he's just started to get on an even playing field with coaches who had previously had a leg up his first couple of years.

    Michigan fan first or cyclone fan first is the real question

    Re: Nik Stauskas

    Is this kid rumored to be unhappy, looking around, or what caused the renewal of interest here?











    "This is the most severe the talk has been since I've been here," said Thomas, who will be a junior. "If that was to be the case and I hope it's not -- whoever steps in, we can still do something special.
    "If it happens that Fred were to leave and I hope he stays -- we will stick together. We're super-talented, no matter what. We can do something special next year."
    Matt Thomas 5/2015

    None of the above. He was just a big name around CF for awhile before he didn't come here. A poor man's Norvel Pelle.

    Stauskas is a very talented shooting guard, who I believe is destined for the NBA!!
    As for Norvel Pelle...I think fanatics know my opinion of him!

    Re: Nik Stauskas

    He is awesome. As someone else said he's the gem of the class McGary and Glenn Robinson Jr were more highly touted.

    HUGE HUGE HUGE upgrade over Evan Smotryz I wondered why he transfered but he was pretty smart to do so after seeing Stauskas shoot.
