    Michael Shaw-2011

    Michael shaw wants to visit some time this year, on an unofficial. One of the top 5 players in the country in his class, from the state of Illinois. Coach D-Rob is doing a great, great job. If we somehow landed a combination of Shaw, Chasson Randle, Tavian Pomlee, and Sam Thomson (A 2011 Illinois kid that likes ISU) we would have a top 2 national recruiting class. Possibly better than 2010's, even.
    Here's Shaw and Thompson's profiles..

    Re: Michael Shaw-2011

    I like the number of the players we have in the mix. Higher numbers mean a better probability of landing one. I'll refrain from being excited until any of these guys score their first point for ISU>

This is most Cyclone fans not caring how long you hold your breath, or anything else, for that matter. I'm not trying to be mean, I'm just saying...

    I know what you are saying and i didnt mean to come off as an ***, but the kid wont commit to anyone for probably at least 2 years. Its a little early to get too excited. Glad he's interested in ISU.

    Re: Michael Shaw-2011

    Hard for me not to consider a dominoes effect. . . .

    I'm guessing great players want to play with other great players who complement their games. Might not an HB commitment to ISU make some sort of impact on the considerations of some 2011 recruits?

    Must be some sort of factor there, although I'm clueless, of course, about how powerful that factor might be. And, it no doubt translates differently from individual recruit to individual recruit.

    I don't know about dominoes but HB committing would have no negative repercussions.

    We'd probably have to shut down CF...

    Re: Michael Shaw-2011

    I can see where some players might not want to come because he is so good, and they won't get the ball as much
