    Next round of recruits

    Jontavious Suttan 09 recruit
    Donovan Kirk 09 recruit (This would be a huge reach. Michigan, Michigan State, Iowa, and even Timmy Floyd have been around him. Top 50 guy.
    Ben Averkamp 09 recruit. Possibly fall back recruit if nothing goes right in this world. St. Louis is our competition
    Cedrick Martin 08-09 Not sure which year he is. Some services have him 08 recruit. Some 09 recruit. He is a SG.


    The good thing I see in recruiting right now is that we are going back into Michigan. Michigan has a ton of talent. Also we are going into Minnisota again. We have had some good players from there. If Gmac can make some in roads there it would help in the future.

    Since he's broken the news about a lot of kids prior to them showing up elsewhere, I think people should be paying attention when knownothing drops some knowledge on us.

    My worry is the wrong people will be paying attention. No doubt KN has a good 'in' to recruiting info... but does this alert others (schools) and put us to a disadvantage...

    just sayin' as the devil's advocate.

    Van Coleman said the players we are still high on. One was a prepschooler from Michigan.

    Re: Next round of recruits

    I think "stealth" recruits are more common in football than basketball.

    One reason is sheer numbers. 3-4 recruits for most basketball classes, 25 for football. Big difference.

    Another is the way basketball has become. A good football player can play on a small team that doesn't get a lot of notice and get lost in the shuffle. A good basketball player in this day and age is playing AAU, likely travelling all over their region or the country to play in tournaments. They might even be reclassifying to prep school to get another year of notice and practice before their eligibility starts.

    Basically, if someone hasn't attracted at least some notice from the big schools in basketball, then they aren't going to be coming to Iowa State anyways.


    have you ever got caught outside In a strong rainfall? Yes or NO. If it"s yes, then you might half felt the pane of hard(tought) rain on you head. If it hurt"s then it"s tough. Yes or no. Okay I'm right and you know it.

    So alothough you attempt"ed to say you didn"t understnad, now you do. Fair enough?

    Look at it this way. If a kid is from Detroit, Michigan he is not a stealth recruit. Everybody knows who he is. If he is from a Small town in Nebrasksa (Eichmeyer) SP then he could be a stealth recruit. You can't fly under the radar if you play in the public leagues.

    Yeah...that's just what I was thinking. Not all great players were looked at by bigger schools...we have one of these exceptions in Wes. For the most part, though, I agree with markshir's rationale.
