    '09 PG Elijah Johnson

    Does anyone know if we have a good chance with this kid? I've heard that we have been recruiting him since his freshman year, he played AAU w/ Brackins, and this year he is switching to the Pump n Run AAU team. ( Run by the notorious Pump Brothers. Formerly coached by Coach Otz.)
    Right now, everyone seems to be assuming he is a Kansas or UCLA lock, but ISU has been on him the longest. What do you guys think about our chances with him?

    Re: '09 PG Elijah Johnson

    If he's that good, I'd say the key to having him come here is convincing him that he'll be able to go far by coming here. And when I say going far, I mean national recognition and some NCAA time.

    Quite honestly, he already knows what he's getting when it comes to UCLA or Kansas. He'll need to know that he can still have big opportunities by coming here, and that he would be a major part of the team.

    I don't think it would matter how good we were in a sport, I think I will always be surprised/ecstatic when we get a 4 or 5 star recruit!
