    Indian Hill Community College

    Maybe this has been posted before, but I was wondering if anyone has information on us recruiting Indian Hills Players. I know we are in on a guard, but they have a couple of decent big men. Leon Powell and Laron Dendy. Has anyone seen them play? Dendy is 6'9' and was rated as a 4 star PF and a Rivals top 100 player in the high school ranks last year. He was a former Clemson commit.

    It looks like Dendy could really help us, Laron Dendy - Basketball Recruiting.
    Mcdermott must have some recruiting connections at Indian hills, since he got Haluska and Peterson. Dendy would be a nice fit if he can make the grade.

    JUCO players have to be outstanding for us to go after. If not they just carry too much baggage....

    Re: Indian Hill Community College

    How did a rivals 100, 4-star power forward form north carolina end up at Indian Hills in Iowa?

    Actually the JUCO pipeline used to work pretty well for Tim Floyd and Larry Eustachy. We certainly don't want to make a living off of it, but I think it's good for McDermott to work that recruiting route as well.

    A DI coach probaly told him to go there. He can be somewhat hidden from other DI schools.

    Indian Hills has a history of taking players that cannot make it into DI schools. Some have question marks in the classroom and as people. There is a reason most of these kids end up there and not in DI. In know in the last people have claimed they could have played Iowa and ISU to a close game. The coach just lets them play "streetball" and do their thing. I guess they are fun to watch play and I think they have put players in the NBA after 2 years.

    This are what others have told me about IHCC.

    Re: Indian Hill Community College

    The state of Iowa actually is known nationally for phenominal Juco basketball...Kirkwood and DMACC are anually two of the top d2 programs in the nation, and Indian Hills, Iowa Western, and Southeastern are always contenders at the D1 level. When it appears a player won't have the grades, or coaches are iffy on whether or not to offer a kid, they often encourage the kid to go Juco, and these are some of the top programs in the country...these Junior College coaches in Iowa have connections from coaches all over the country.

    Re: Indian Hill Community College

    I know Iowa typically has a history of great Juco basketball but why not go to a Juco in texas or florida or california or indiana? This guy could have gone to any Juco, its just bizzare that he ended up in Iowa.

    Unless his size is not reported right, it doesn't sound like this guy is going to help us be physical down low.

    Re: Indian Hill Community College

    It is kind of mind boggling...nothing out of the ordinary though...Jerome Harper and Chris Alexander played on the same Indian Hills team, and they just recently had a player that went on to be a star at UTEP and lead them to the NCAA tourney...Justin Holt played there too (would have been an absolute stud if he could've stayed out of trouble).

    Some states dont have many JUCO's or JUCO ball programs. DI coaches know where to send kids. DI coaches have ties to different JUCO coaches, trust them, and want to send kids they may want in the future to them.

    Re: Indian Hill Community College

    I actually attended, and have an associate's degree from IHCC. It goes nicely with my Master's, and adds even more "grit" to my background.

    When I was there, the athletes basically ran roughshod over the dorms, doing drugs, beating the crap out of dormies, and received no sanction from the school or the community for their misdeeds.

    Don't know if that is different, now.

    Looking at the cash we have in the bank wth the current big men for next year, looks like we need to add some more cash with a juco big man to make our account look better.

    Maybe they just didn't like you.
