    I would like to think MA is building his recruiting resume similar to how CFH started building ISU. Get transfers first and use that to build a profile to eventually land a big time high school recruit.

    If MA lands Cooke and Anderson along with BDJ then uses his NYC upbringing to land Cheick Diallo, everyone will be more than in love with him. He's still a young coach and recruiter so he is going to get better and better. Him and CFH are a great one-two punch.

    Re: RECRUITING: Hallice Cooke visiting this weekend

    To be fair to myself I haven't heard one positive thing about Oregon State's program so I really did think that could be their real gym. I've had a few Monday beers though so that probably doesn't help.

    I also think the transfer market much more closely resembles Fred and Matt's previous front office experience. It's a much shorter cycle, more business like, and the people your recruiting are experienced enough to know what is important and what is not.

    This is me stealing CW's thunder. Sorry, CW!

    @ChrisMWilliams: Hallice Cooke told me that he just happened to be at ISU's Sweet 16 game in New York. He was home on spring break. Small world. #Cyclones

    If they can reel in Diallo and the two transfers, a national championship in 2015-2016 is extremely attainable. And it would make future recruiting even better/easier.

    He's ours. Now he just needs to help seal the deal with Anderson.

    That's a unique sort of unofficial visit.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Re: RECRUITING: Hallice Cooke visiting this weekend

    I saw one tweet that said that CFH likes the buddy system when it comes to transfers that have to sit one year. I hadn't thought about that in regards to this situation - Anderson and Cooke. Also, think about that level of talent on the practice squad! It will only make our team better prepared for the big boys on our schedule. Make it happen Fred!


    Utah Utes, Illinois Illini. The University of Pennsylvania thought about following this pattern by calling themselves the Pennsylvania Pencils. However, they were afraid their students would start chanting "We're No. 2"

    It is no ISU, but OSU is not a bad place. Why are we bashing OSU again?


    Cooke is a hard worker with good potential. A year to work with Fred and he will be great for 3 years (if he decides to come, obviously). I think Fred is his best bet to become Ann NBA level pg as well.

    Re: RECRUITING: Hallice Cooke visiting this weekend

    If we are seriously in on Ellenson, Noskowiak and Diallo....count me as one to pass on Cooke. He's going to take one of their scholarships. And everyone seems to be ALL IN on the 2015-16 team, I have to assume you'd rather have those three also right?
