    Instate recruiting

    Just thinking about all the instate Div I recruits that didn't go to ISU. Seems we miss out most often on those that originate east of I-35. For example:Collison, LaFrenz, Mark Gannon, Chris Street, Jess Settles, Brunner, Gatens, Gibbs, Bohannon,Horner, Etc. Some we got West of I-35:Homan, Meyer, Hoiberg,Morgan Wheat, Hurl Beechum,Brian Peterson, Mike Born, and we lost Heinrich, Troy Skinner, and Berkenpas, The Korver family, Tyler McKinney, Nate Funk Etc.The only recruits I can remember ISU getting from eastern Iowa in the last 30 years were Kunnert from Dubuque, Dean Utoff, and Klay Edwards. What is the point of all this nonsense? Probably that chances of Pomlee or Kaylon Williams ending up at ISU are slim and none.

    Re: Instate recruiting

    I don't think Kaylon Williams will come here, but I still think there is a chance at Pomlee. Recently, on the news he said something like "Iowa State and Wisconsin are recruiting me pretty hard" or something to that effect, but I have no idea if he will come here or not.

    Re: Instate recruiting

    Most of the guys you listed from the east went to Iowa or KU. The ones that went to Iowa are probably big time Hawk fans so we never had a chance, didn't Horner commit when he was 15 or something like that? It is also hard to get a kid to come to ISU when KU comes calling, especially if he is not a big Cyclone fan.

    It would be nice to get the best instate talent every year, but it will never be easy.

    Re: Instate recruiting

    Collison and Heinrich were coming here, but decided to go to KU when Floyd left for the pro's. Since we lost Heinrich that is when LE decided to go find JT. I'd take JT.

    I forget his name, played him growing up in AAU and school. We didn't want him. Big guy and and no athletic ability whatsoever.

    Not entirely true. Yes, Hinrich was a verbal commit to Floyd and reopened when he left for Chicago. Collison was never seriously interested in ISU.

    Kaylon Williams is a major stretch at the D1 BCS level.

    IMO, he could actually be a pretty good BCS player, but I don't know if he would be the right fit for ISU.

    Re: Instate recruiting

    Most of those had to do with coaching changes and ISU being poor @ the time. Things will change just look how well GMAC recruited instate @ UNI. We have a much better chance @ recruiting big In-State players because Greg is an Iowa Boy with roots here and can relate to these players.

    Collison would have went to Iowa, we never really had a shot at him.

    Re: Instate recruiting

    Considering Evansville is Williams' only offer at this time, and the fact that Pomlee's academic status and questions about his game are causing other schools to stay away... maybe we aren't the only people "missing" on them, and maybe we are "missing" on them for a reason.
