    Appleton news...?

    anyone heard anything new on tyrone appleton??? sounds like he's close to a decision and looks like its down to us, kansas, kentucky and now maybe indiana in the mix. he would be a HUGE addition to this team, and would be almost guaranteed the starting PG spot. if we can get him i think that puts us in the top 4-5 in the conference and we will get a NCAA tourney berth next season


    ALL IN

    I don't have any news but Texas is also in the final 5... it would be awesome if we could pull it off!! We have to be able to offer the most PT out of any of the 5 schools!

    Re: Appleton news...?

    if he came here, which, don't get me wrong would be awesome, he would still have to compete with Dominique Buckley, and Diante Garrett, who would have a year of Big 12 play under his belt.

    True, but he is a combo guard, so he could definitly play both positions. I think if he came here he would get something like 27 mpg, and it wouldn't necessarily come just at the PG spot.

    that is also true. If all these guys end up playing together, our major weakness from this year, being our guard play, could be a strength come this time next year

    If he's not good enough to beat out Buckley then we are wasting our time in the first place. Not a slam on Buckley but he's 2 years younger.

    Of course he must have said that in a roundabout way, because he can't comment specifically about a recruitable athlete

    Yes, he said they are recruiting a couple of juco guards, and both are very interested in us.

    "If he's not good enough to beat out Buckley???" If we don't get another PG, we had better hope that Buckley is good enough to beat out Garrett/Peterson. I thought that was a given. With all this false hope being generated, can anyone tell me how many times we have out recruited Kansas, Kentucky, Indiana, and Texas for a player?

    I'm not expecting the Appleton decison to favor ISU. I REALLY hope I am wrong.

    Re: Appleton news...?

    I think the limit is still 13 scholarships (correct me if I am wrong and I don't know our current situation with APR)
    Bold are my projected starters if no new commits are brought in.
    1,2,3 POSITIONS-----------------------------------------------------------------

    1 - 10 Garrett, Diante G 6-4 180 Fr. Milwaukee, Wis. (Vincent)
    2 - Dominique Buckley PG 6-2 185 - Detroit, MI
    3 - 5 Staiger, Lucca G 6-5 220 Fr. Blaustein, Germany (Decatur [Ill.] Christian)
    4 - 0 Boozer, Charles G 6-3 195 Fr. Raleigh, N.C. (Stoneridge [Calif.] Prep)
    5 - 4 Johnson, Wesley F 6-7 210 So. Corsicana, Texas (Corsicana/Patterson School)
    6 - Wes Eikmeier SG 6-3 165 - Fremont, NE
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    POST PLAYERS
    7 - 15 Thompson, Alex F 6-10 250 Jr. Ames, Iowa (Ames)
    8 - 21 Brackins, Craig F 6-10 230 Fr. Palmdale, Calif. (Brewster [N.H.] Academy)
    9 - 31 Johnson, Cory F 6-7 240 So. Duluth, Minn. (East)
    10 - Justin Hamilton C 6-11 220 - Alpine, UT
    11 - Clinton Mann PF 6-7 220 - Overland Park, KS
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    IF THESE GUYS BECOME OR STAY WALKONS
    Sedrick Johnson ----?????????????
    1 Lee, Cameron G 6-2 180 Fr. Country Club Hills, Ill. (Hillcrest)
    3 Haluska, Sean G 6-3 200 Jr. Carroll, Iowa (Indian Hills [Iowa] CC) (Carroll)
    22 Petersen, Bryan G 6-1 180 Jr. Clinton, Iowa (Kirkwood [Iowa] CC) (Clinton)
    2 Jacobson, Brock G 6-2 195 So. Webster City, Iowa (Webster City)
    40 Currie, Mark G 6-4 210 Sr. Odebolt, Iowa (Odebolt-Arthur)
    52 Smith, Mike F 6-8 240 Sr. Runnells, Iowa (Iowa Central CC) (Southeast Polk)
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    GONE
    13 Clark, Rahshon F 6-6 210 Sr. Queens, N.Y. (Beach Channel/Bridgton Academy)
    33 Hubalek, Jiri C 6-11 240 Sr. Prague, Czech Republic (Marshalltown CC)
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    so if we can get Appleton and a Decent Post player we would be at 13. (again..unless I am wrong for some reason about that)
    I guess my issue is that I don't think we have a good post precence still. Brackins is awesome, but we almost need an
    immediate defensive impact guy down there. (6-10 Beefy guy) like a Jamie Vanderbeeken (6-9 250 Juco kid)
    Those are our two glaring weaknesses in my opinion. I think we become deadly behind the arc next year so at least we have that.


    EDIT: And who knows who will leave etc..

    Re: Appleton news...?

    Guard/shooter is much more important IMO. In today's game you can get away without a big post player, but not without shooters.

    A banger would be a bonus in this class

    Re: Appleton news...?

    if there is a 6'10" juco guy who can prove that he can bang with big 12 caliber guys i'll take him, but right now appleton is much higher on my list of needs. he's a good ball handler, and much more athletic than a brian peterson. think of the shooters we could have next year. wes, eik, lucca, appleton, petey, haluska! all can stroke it from deep. i just hope buckley is a good is i've heard and also hope that justin hamilton can give us quality minutes inside

    Re: Appleton news...?

    It is very evident this year that good guards win college basketball games. Id love a big man juco, but id take 2 juco guards instead. If no oone of any worth is available, bank em for 09'.
