    Re: Jerry Myles - MBB recruit

    It really hurts us that des Moines hardly ever produces any good players.

    Disagree here. Iowa's perfectly safe, unless you're a girl and you hang around with Iowa athletes

    The only thing to be scared of at Iowa is the cops. Also, if your ranking academics iowa and isu are very close but id give edge to iowa for admissions standard, national reputation, and med school/law school. Not a huge difference.

    Undergraduate academics at ISU and Iowa vary wildly by major. The schools compliment each other well.

    Re: Jerry Myles - MBB recruit

    One other thing to mention about this kid.....if he is only 14 and already 6 4, it is pretty likely he is not done growing. My guess would be that he is not likely to be a point guard by his senior year in high school. More likely a shooting guard or small forward/wing. His recruitment has a very long ways to go.


    -Be kind. That is something you will never regret. You will never say to yourself when you are old "I wish I was not good to that person".

    the general area has produced probably the best three iowa players in the 2000s in korver and mcdermott and barnes

    its too bad the first 2 had to leave the state since isu and iowa werent interested

    cr area seems to send a lot of kids d1 but they dont really amount to much

    Myles is legit. Will be a four-star recruit as a senior.

    I'm probably taking Hinrich and Collison over Korver.

    Re: Jerry Myles - MBB recruit

    Highly touted guard Myles enrolls at UT : Western-big-six

    Looks like it didnt work out at that prep school or whatever they want to call it and is back in the quad cities, too bad its just not at my ol' stomping grounds in Dport.
    The state hs bball scene needs some more talent, its been pretty weak latelly.

    It's hard enough to recruit against teams like Baylor and KU, but when you write off your entire state in recruiting, it makes it that much harder.




    I feel like Jok this year was worth taking a shot with.


    That's the right way

    Re: Jerry Myles - MBB recruit

    To everyone that hates our recruiting efforts in the state of Iowa:

    Fred will start getting the very good Iowa players. He's become a tremendous recruiter. We didn't land guys like Gessel (even though he's technically from Nebraska, but Nebraska isn't a factor for any decent recruits to want to go to), Oglesby, Uthoff, and Woodbury because Fred was still unproven. McCaffery had head coaching experience and did a fantastic job at Siena. That worked out to his favor. Had Hoiberg been a successful coach elsewhere before ISU, at least one of those guys would've signed with ISU at the time. If these guys were seniors now, Hoiberg would probably have one or two of them committed by now. Jok is a vastly overrated mediocre player that we gave up on as well. Paige left the state of Iowa because he clearly wanted to be a blue blood just like Barnes.

    This doesn't mean that I want all of these Hawks on our team, just using their names as examples. It doesn't bother me that we aren't signing Iowa kids, but I guarantee you that if there was an extremely talented player coming out of Iowa next year, Fred would do everything he can to get him. Iowa is a very small state (population-wise), so it's not like they're guaranteed a 4 or 5 star player every year. There will be another year like two years ago with the talent in the state of Iowa, and Fred will pick up at least one guy from there. Have some faith and don't use the past when Hoiberg was inexperienced as a reason to worry about us not getting talent from the state of Iowa. It's not that he has given up on the state, because he will get a few talented players from there by the time he's done coaching at ISU.

    Didn't woodmonkey show up for a visit wearing hawk gear? Face it, most of these kids are probably hawk fans. I think with Fred's continued success will push through some of that but ignorance is just that.

    Maybe not a good coaching strategy but I would have kicked him off campus and sent him back home if he showed up wearing another school's gear, especially the in-state rival.
