    Probably didn't qualify. Which is why he has to sit out his surgery year in JUCO and not at ISU immediately.

    Non qualifiers out of high school have to wait two years and get an AA before they can transfer to a D1 school.

    Had he qualified and then blown up his first year, he could transfer out after one year.

    Morris-6'2"
    Naz - 6'3"
    Thomas - 6'4"
    Niang - 6'7"
    McKay - 6'8"

    Assume we pick up nobody (which we will I bet) and that is still a terrifying starting 5. So many mis matches all over the place.
    The frontcourt will be incredibly versatile, longer than we have been, and a perfect fit for Hoiberg basketball. Georges wheeling and dealing, McKay finishing, Williams shooting, and Nader slashing...and so on.

    If Georges transforms his body a little to a leaner 245-250, he will be unstoppable surrounded by these guys plus Naz and Thomas filling it up on the perimeter, and Morris and Custer driving and dishing.

    I'm surprised nobody is whining about him not being a high school recruit.

    As long as he doesn't mess up again, he will be on the team. He will probably only be suspended the first couple games next year

    @TravisHines21: How embracing versatility helped ISU convince Darien Williams to want to "bring a national championship to Ames" http://t.co/UKt7zI7ATs
