    was isu ever in the running for marcus paige?

    looks like we offered, did he humor isu or even iowa? or was he seeming going to one of the big dogs of CBB from the get go? dude looks solid. shame to let talent like that leave the state.

    IIRC he was an early UNC commit and stayed solid the whole time.

    I think he was a lot closer to going to Iowa than he ever was Iowa State.

    Hawks claim they almost had him. Have to think if he was a senior in HS now it would be a real battle between us for him

    He was UNCs but if anyone was second I would have said Iowa.

    From what I heard from someone that went to high school with him it was actually the opposite. But he never really seriously considered either.

    Re: was isu ever in the running for marcus paige?

    Besides North Carolina he put down Iowa, Minnesota, Illinois and Virginia. I think he mentioned Iowa just to be respectful since he was from Marion. No ISU wasn't an option. Going to the NBA D-league North Carolina Tar Heels was a smart move.

    Do you 'spose UNC would trade Paige for the Iowan who picked the Hoks instead of them ?

    North Carolina was his dream from the time was a little kid. Literally took the offer the same day Roy made it.

    Re: was isu ever in the running for marcus paige?

    Both teams had sucked for a while and had new coaches that hadn't proved themselves yet. So, even if he wasn't always going to UNC, there wasn't much reason for him to stay in state if he wasn't a crazy fan of either team.

    Re: was isu ever in the running for marcus paige?

    I always got the feeling Paige never considered us early on because we had G Mac. I think you could say the same for Iowa before Fran. I think had Fred and Fran been in place when he was in 8th and 9th grade might have been more of a battle, but who knows.

    I believe GMac offered him when Paige was in 9th grade, but nothing ever transgressed

    We don't recruit Iowa very well.

    Re: was isu ever in the running for marcus paige?

    Paige was a lifelong UNC fan, other schools only would have been considered had there not been a UNC offer. He has been on record saying he cheers for Iowa over ISU.
