    We got any shot at this kid?

    ESPN just released their 2017 basketball top 25 recruits and who comes in at #24 and 5 * is none other than Fran white lightning McCaffery's son Connor McCaffery who plays for IC West. Had no idea his kid was that good. Is it even worth our time recruiting this kid?

    I would think only if his dad is on a very hot seat (see McDermott, Doug).

    He'll probably start off real hot, fade down the stretch, and tell people to suck a fat one when he signs with Eastern Illinois.

    Re: We got any shot at this kid?

    I've seen Connor play a bunch, he is pretty good.

    It may be what keeps Fran around if he doesn't make the tourney this year.

    cool thread though, I think you answered your own question before you even asked it.

    By that point, Fred will only be recruiting top 5 players.

    No. If Fran is still at Iowa, letting Connor come to ISU would cost him his job. If he's not then Connor would probably go with him to the next job, a la the McDermotts.

    Where are Fred's kids for the class of 2027 or whatever it is? There's got to be some early rankings out.

    On the plus side, unless Fran gets that program in order and solidifies his outlook in Iowa City to a four year horizon, it's unlikely that Connor would be a Hawkeye, either.

    If he's anything like his dad he'll collapse over the last 8-9 minutes. Might even slam a chair or two. Do not want.

    Cue the mouthbreather Iowa fans that will hail Fran as a great recruiter for getting a top 30 guy.

    Re: We got any shot at this kid?

    Best thing about this thread is that it reminded me to check an old forum about Patrick McCaffrey's thyroid tumor status. I lost track of what happened and this made me go back and read up on the good news.

    In terms of Connor, Fred will get him as a transfer and then pull his scholly.... just cuz.

    Re: We got any shot at this kid?

    Kinda off topic but does anyone know what class Elijah long is? It gets me jacked up thinking of having another long four years. Not to mention we all know longs have ice in their veins and know how to finish games unlike any mc caffreys.
