    Wes Eikmeier article from Fremont Tribune

    Wes scored 34 last night and is averaging 28 through 4 games. People will be suprised by how good a ball handler he is. He is the fastest player I have seen on the court this year. Wes is not just shooter.

    Have you seen this kid play #1? Just curious, since you like ripping on our recruits and current players so much.

    Wow...you are just a touch on the edge! Take a deep breath and relax.

    To answer your question...no, I have not seen him play. Did I "rip" the kid? I don't believe so. Frankly, I just wanted to get some perspective on this guy's opinion since he said, and I paraphrase here, "he is the quickest player I've seen this year"...I'm just curious as to how much he has to compare this kid to...nothing nefarious in my question.

    Having said that, I do admit that I am a little dubious of "great BB recruits from NE"...I don't believe that the state could actually be considered a BB hotbed.

    He is the quickest high school player I have seen this year. I have only seen NE high school.

    I have not see not seen the kid play, but I am pretty sure McDermott has. I am willing to bet the farm that McDermott has a better guage of D-1 talent than anyone on this message board.

    Good enough for me.

    Re: Wes Eikmeier article from Fremont Tribune

    Quickest player he's seen all year has to be a good thing. It doesn't matter if he's only seen 1 game, I'd sure rather Eikmeier be the quickest than the slowest out there.


    have you ever got caught outside In a strong rainfall? Yes or NO. If it"s yes, then you might half felt the pane of hard(tought) rain on you head. If it hurt"s then it"s tough. Yes or no. Okay I'm right and you know it.

    So alothough you attempt"ed to say you didn"t understnad, now you do. Fair enough?

    Re: Wes Eikmeier article from Fremont Tribune

    Watching our shooting this year, he would be a pleasant surprise if he shoots well. Looking forward to his joining the team. He may b the best basketball player in Nebraska. I would also think he would not quit the team.

    Not Sure the Level of Competition is Important

    If Eikmeier was a post kid or athletic scorer the level of competition or his quickness might be important. From everything I've read (Never seen him play) he is a shooter and I'm sure G-Mac recruited him for his ability to make 3's.

    Looking back Mac has gotten some pretty good players from small schools. All that matters is Eikmeier fits G-Mac's style of play.

    Re: Wes Eikmeier article from Fremont Tribune

    I've heard that Altman really likes Eikmeier. He would be all over him if G-Mac had not looked him up early. He's the type of player that Altman built his program with. I've also heard that Doc Sadler is also disappointed that Eikmeier was gone before he got a chance to go after him.

    There were also articles that Missouri would give him an offer instantly if for any reason he were to decommit from ISU.

    McDermott said on his call in show last week, that Staiger and Eikmeier should have some good shooting battles in practice. He also said, that Eikmeier has been working hard on his ball handling.

    Competition at this level is real variable, this is high schools of less than 250 students.
