    Re: Interesting recruiting stuff

    It'll be interesting to see how the little Babb develops. The general consensus has been that he isn't quite a high major prospect yet. And it would seem that we have some pretty good targets for his year already and not a lot of scholarships to go around. But the sentimental mom part of me wants him at Iowa State because wouldn't that just be perfect since I am going to miss watching Chris, blah, blah, blah. And who wouldn't want someone who learned from a player who obviously worked really, really hard and turned into an awfully good basketball player.

    Another Babb would never be a bad thing.

    Re: Interesting recruiting stuff

    IMO it has always come down to whether he was considered to be a off guard/ shooting guard or a forward. Athletic 6'4" SF without good perimeter skills can be good gets, but are meh early in the process. If he is a SG he is a high major player.
    That said, I have been high on him regardless, as I think at the very least he would be a great fit for that 3rd guard position we have had success with (Horton in 2000 and Chris Babb in 2012).

    The thing is this. If Nick Babb was a high d1 player. I am sure we probably would have offered him already. Whats Cato's sons first and last name

    Re: Interesting recruiting stuff

    According to this, he has offers from WSU, Creighton, and others. Might end pretty good.

    Opinions change as recruits develop.
    Also, situation is as much about the other players we have offered and position of need as it is Babb.

    Obviously, he hasn't been a high priority yet, but that doesn't mean he won't be. And, frankly, one good tournament doesn't mean he is a high major recruit to begin with.

    That being said, he's at least been a little bit on Iowa State's radar just because he is Chris' brother. For example, he sat with the recruits when he was in town for senior day.
