    I think before we make him a 1st team B12 or a kid that ends up transferring to a D3 school we should know if he'll ever step foot in Ames.

    What fun is that? It's May!

    Re: New foreign commit - Giorgos Tsalmpouris

    I'm not going to lie, the other players in his highlight video like YMCA pick up guys.

    #12 on his team must have a BMI squarely in the "obese" category.

    I don't know if he'll ever make here, but the news is all over the Greek sports websites. I googled his name then hit more images and clicked on pictures of him which led to the Greek websites. I installed Google translator so that I could read the pages.

    It is really a blast reading the translated pages. We were called the "Iowa State Warriors" and the Iowa State Saiklons! Love that phonetic spelling.

    You know Russian hackers are now watching live from your web cam and have all your account numbers and passwords right?

    Might Hoiberg hire an assistant who focuses on the big guys?

    Re: New foreign commit - Giorgos Tsalmpouris

    I would like more info on this tsalmpouris Chris/Hines. How good of a player is he? Top 100 recruit maybe? What type of star rating would he have if he was on rivals? Why would the NBA tip us off to this guy that seems unknown. Also Please tell us how to pronounce Georgios or Tsalmpouris properly. The line up possibilities are huge for 2014 season. So much DEPTH and LANK (aka length)

    Re: New foreign commit - Giorgos Tsalmpouris

    This guy reminds me of Kravic from Texas Tech. Same build. Could run floor well for size. Kravic showed some touch around the rim at times. But I sure hope that our guy is 10x the player Kravic was.

    I was more impressed with the video than I was expecting. I question if he is legit 7 feet though.

    Great news is the college champion in the Big 12 if I'm not mistaken with the presence in the final phase. Much better from playing B category.
