    re: ISU MBB Commitment - Gillstrap

    Gillstrap was being recruited pretty hard by ISU as a diamond in the rough type player similar to WJ a few years back. As was eluded to over the past week by a few members here, he has some knee problems that he's getting over and could be a huge addition to a team that could really use his size and shooting ability. A great talent that not many have heard of, and that was as planned


    Sometimes it is the people who no one imagines anything of who do the things that no one can imagine.

    The staff is going to try and get him another year with an appeal. This becomes important because it will help bridge a gap(1year) if one of our current guys has to hang up the sneakers.

    Hopefully he works out, but honestly, I'm less than thrilled that we spent a scholarship on a player with knee issues. It seems like a pretty big risk to take IMO.

    So does this mean that an offer for Farmer is off the table?

    I'm interested to hear more about him.

    KG is this the one year player you were refering to last week?

    This is killing me... My guess is Christopherson has some lingering affects from HIS leg problem, or maybe DG?

    It wouldn't be a player this year would it? He is an '09 player so he wouldn't be ready to play this season.

    Gillstrap does not have knee issues...with all of my hinting there maybe some confusion...A current player has knee issues.

    Oh No Craig blew out his knee didn't he. Don't do this to me.

    I'm just kidding of course but I am sure it will get to this point.
