    Possible Transfer

    Heard it here first..

    Former West Des Moines Valley basketball star, Kale Abrahamson, currently playing for Northwestern, has told two very close, reliable sources that if a scholarship spot opens up it is a huge possibility that he would transfer to Iowa State to play for Fred Hoiberg. He and Bill Carmody have been butting heads and has a good relationship with Hoiberg.

    This obviously is a process in the works but definitely catches my attention.

    What do you guys think?

    Re: Possible Transfer

    Wouldn't mind him as I think he would fit in the system just fine but I don't think he will transfer.

    Re: Possible Transfer

    If he can't play for Northwestern a team that has never made the NCAA tournament, I'm not sure how good he would be playing for Iowa State. We'll take him as a recruited walk-on though.

    Re: Possible Transfer

    For those looking for more info...

    Abrahamson is a 6'7'' true freshman playing for Northwestern. He was a 3* recruit with an offer from Iowa State (and Iowa) coming out of high school.

    Here's a link to his Northwestern profile with stats at the bottom. He's a 37% three-point shooter this season.

    Correct me if I am wrong, but if he were to transfer, he would sit out next season before being eligible for '14-'15 and would have three years to play here starting then.

    EDIT: This link appears to be more recent and fully updated. Abrahamson is 27-70 from behind the arc this season (39%) and 15-36 during conference play (42%). Seems like a good fit in the system here.

    Ehhh. Have higher expectations for the '14 class than getting him as a transfer.

    Re: Possible Transfer

    I wouldn't have minded him out of high school, but not sure if this is the type of transfer that's worth it at this point. One year to sit out when we can get immediate help as good or better than him. I will end this with, if Fred wants him, I want him. In Fred I Trust.

    Re: Possible Transfer

    Unless he gets his shot down better, I don't think he is worth a scholarship. I watched just about every one of his high school games at Valley and he has a lot of weaknesses. NEEDS to gain strength or will get pushed around. I feel we can get a better recruit than to get him as a transfer for that year.

    Re: Possible Transfer

    A 6'7" guy that can shoot the three ball would fit in well and we may need a SF/PF after Hogue is done.

    I agree. The guy can shoot and he'd have a redshirt year in the system with three to play afterwards. Get him here and let him bulk up. If he gets more size to play down low and keeps his 3-point percentage around 40% he will be big-time.

    Abrahamson shoots better than Ejim and Niang from outside as a freshman.

    Re: Possible Transfer

    He had a big 2nd half tonight. 3 straight 3s to give them a lead at Ohio St. But his freshman stats are barely better than Babb's at Penn St or Lucious at MSU..and I can't remember what D2 school they transferred to after us..doesn't matter, we can all agree they were a bust. Fred is clearly bad at spotting talent. No thanks.

    Re: Possible Transfer

    I would take him! He can shoot - redshirt him next year and put 15 lbs on and work on his defense. He could easily be a 3 year starter for the us.
    i wonder if his family would come back to the area???

    I'm all for having Iowa guys on the team, historically it has been a positive for us.


    Rhoads out!
