    Tyrone Appleton MBB Recruiting Note

    I heard from an Appleton source today that Ty is now planning on visiting Kansas in the near future. It's now a 3 team race (ISU & Kentucky as well).

    This thing is being strung out a lot longer than anybody expected. That usually doesn't turn out well for the little guy. In this case, that's Iowa State.

    Re: Tyrone Appleton MBB Recruiting Note

    Thanks for the update Chris - that's too bad. Hopefully we can convince him that KU is flooded with talent and he'll have to really find a way to crack the lineup, where he can come in and be a part of the rotation immediately at ISU... we'll see I guess.

    Do we have a backup plan that you're aware of?

    Problem is Kansas won't be flooded with talent at the gaurd spot next year.

    Isn't Kansas always flooded with talent?

    Re: Tyrone Appleton MBB Recruiting Note

    KU being down at any spot is like the Pats having issue at QB.


    Cyclone
    Iowa State became the Cyclones after they leveled Northwestern in 1895. As the Chicago Tribune (9/29/1895) noted:
    'Struck by a Cyclone
    It Comes from Iowa and Devastates Evanston Town'

    Brandon Rush a junior who won't be back.
    Russell Robinson a senior.
    Stewart a senior.
    Case a senior.

    That leaves Chalmers, Collins, and Reed in their gaurd court. I'd say they'll need help next year.

    They all could start at ISU right now. I'd lay all my credits on the line to say Kansas won't be left out in the cold looking for guards for next year.

    Yeah, but is KU going to play these guys every minute of every game next year. I'm just saying that KU has playing time next year. Plus, you never know if injuries will occur (Collins this year) and I don't think KU will settle with having lack of depth.

    The difference is that KU is looking for depth, but ISU is looking for a starter.

    Boy it sure seems like ISU is a search firm for other schools. ISU identifies the talent and the big boys swoop in.

    Re: Tyrone Appleton MBB Recruiting Note

    Why would he honestly be interested in Kansas? They already have a Juco swingman coming in in Little, Releford at the SG spot, and Collins will for sure get most of the minutes at the PG spot. With Chalmers, Reed, and Teahan in there as well there really won't be a whole lot of minutes available to him.

    I agree, but put yourself in his shoes. He's one of the top JUCO prospects in the country and arguably the best team in the country wants you to play for them.

    Let's be honest. Bill Self isn't telling Tyrone "you'll be one of our top reserves." That's not how recruiting works.

    It's up to Appleton and his family to do enough research and figure out where he'll sit on the KU pecking order.

    We either get an early commitment (before jr. year) or they end up somewhere else. We need to figure out how to win some of these battles.
