    Didn't he also see us play in Hawaii at the tournament? Could've sworn it was the beavers that played the day before us.

    If he comes here, in 2015/16 we'd have a sophomore class of Custer, Williams and Cooke. That's way better than if they would have settled for a couple lesser hs recruits after they missed out on some of the bigger targets this past year.

    “I feel like that (Iowa State) coaching staff knows how to develop players,” Cooke said. “That’s something that I wasn’t as comfortable with here. I want to give myself an opportunity to win. That’s something that I didn’t feel like was going to happen at Oregon State so that stood out to me – an opportunity to play for a good coach and a winning program that just won a conference title. That stood out.”

    Almost sounds like his mind is already made up.

    They were there but may have been on the beach.

    It's crazy for me to say this, but those schools don't even scare me anymore. We have proven we can take in transfers and turn them into elite players. Who else has done that on a consistent basis over the past 5 years? I can't name a single program.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    Re: RECRUITING: Hallice Cooke already very familiar with ISU

    ISU's Big12 Tourney Championship and Sweet 16 run this year are already paying dividends. Not to mention the success the program has had with transfers. We are on people's radars now.


    "I watch the Cyclone players and they look like guys who grew up fighting for everything they got, on and off the court. In a word, men. I look at the Iowa players and I assume when they were kids they played soccer in leagues that didn't keep score to avoid hurting anyone's feelings. There is not one single leader on this team. It's a group of high school friends playing a pickup game at the YMCA and maybe they will keep score, maybe not, because they are just happy to be there."

    I was thinking the same thing.

    Re: RECRUITING: Hallice Cooke already very familiar with ISU

    If you were a talented player that just needed that extra bit of coaching and development, why wouldn't you choose ISU? Seriously, look at how much players improve under even limited Hoiberg exposure. As has already been said, ISU may not land a bunch of McD AAs, at least not for a while. But ISU will get players that fit the system and are driven to prove others wrong. Just look at Hogue as an example.

    I agree. There are two things I like about transfers.

    First is you can evaluate them against college players versus HS players. This should greatly decrease odds of whiffing on a given player evaluation.

    Secondly, I can't help but feel a portion of our recent success is a result of having great talent on our scout teams. Most team practice against a bunch of walk-ons and rs freshmen. Practicing daily against players who would start at a lot of D-1 schools has to be a good thing.

    Thanks Chris for ruining my day. I read your article, took a look at the schollie chart, saw no Niang in 2016-17 and almost cried.

    When he says he wants to wait to make a decision he means wait until Sunday before he leaves.. The dude is a perfect fit and could develop into a legit NBA prospect...

    Agree. This is my opinion, 99% chance Hallice Cooke will be a Cyclone.
