    He looks like a child. A 6'8" child.

    At my age 15 year olds are children. Geeze I hate the Golden Years. He looks like a nice clean-cut kid. Guess that remark also shows my age.

    I didn't know he's projected to be a top 50 recruit AND after he committed early. Good get for ISU.


    "I think that people are responding to someone standing up and saying this is what we want to do and let's not be afraid to go for it,'' Pollard said. "I think Iowa State has a very conservative, modest background. We never pound our chest and say `Let's do it.' It's OK to set a goal. You can't do it if you don't say what you want to do. You should be proud of it.''

    Re: Jordan Dykstra Scout.com free article

    Is there any video of him anywhere? He looks like he'll have a solid frame by the time he makes it on campus, but it would be nice to see how he plays. Maybe some sites can put up some video during this coming season or during some camps.

    Gotta look to the future...

    15-ish wins this year, hopefully over that hump the following year, then we get the big class (hopefully)...

    Re: Jordan Dykstra Scout.com free article

    I don't know much about the rating systems, but he is listed as a three star (Scout.com: Men's Basketball Recruiting). If a top fifty recruit is only a three star, what's it take to be a four or five star?

    Re: Jordan Dykstra Scout.com free article

    They haven't actually ranked most people for the class of 2010. And the highest I've seen Dykstra ranked is in the 70 range - I'm not sure of other places. I think scout has only ranked the top 25 for 2010.

    It is nice to have a player coming who is actually excited to come play for ISU and Coach Mac.

    Re: Jordan Dykstra Scout.com free article

    He was projected as a top 50 but from what I have heard, he looked more like a 150-200 type this year. Hopefully his development just stalled instead of plateud and he will build his game the next couple of years...

    54th here:
    College Basketball Recruiting, High School Basketball News and Player Rankings - HoopsReport.Com

    And I don't have a link or anything but I think Van has him in the top 50.

    I think Scout and Rivals will start taking notice sooner rather than later. But regardless of rankings, Mac wanted him bad and offered early, very early. - that says something to me.

    With Jordan and maybe Barnes, the 2010 class could be special, but from other posts it sounds like Harrison may have outgrown ISU.

    Am i the only one who finds it bizarre

    that there is hardly a peep about a top national recruit commited to playing for ISU and is thrilled and excited about it? Yet total hysteria about a other recruit who probobly wont even go to ISU.

    I completely agree with this, Mac recruited him very early and I think he has a good history with his early offers. Van is the one that I saw that had him about 70.
