    Good recruiting article regarding Barnes, Dykstra, and Christopherson

    We even get a quote from Harrison's mother. She needs to start recruiting him better for us. Just kidding.

    Barnes "He’s said he wants a championship-caliber program."

    Does this mean championship caliber from school history or a new team that has the potential in general.

    Re: Good recruiting article regarding Barnes, Dykstra, and Christopherson

    I don't like that quote. I also don't like the quote his mom said around the lines of "it's not how long you know a coach or who was there first". Basically sound like his long standing with ISU basketball does not matter that much in recruiting. I don't think that is a good sign for us.

    I didn't have a problem with it. Me think you're over reading it.

    He is Harrison Barnes. That is what we do with HB. We over read everything. I am just adding my 2 cents of over reading into things.

    Re: Good recruiting article regarding Barnes, Dykstra, and Christopherson

    Maybe he is overreading it. But the two things mentioned were:

    1. Championship program. (Not really in our favor)
    2. Relationship with the staff doesn't matter. (Really not in our favor)

    Hopefully the relationship with the staff is what matters because ultimately that's where I think ISU can have an advantage.

    Could be true, but depending how we do this year and how our recruiting goes till then, we may have a solid enough team that he would consider it.

    She probably will, but out of choice. I am sure it won't be hard to find a job with a school anywhere else, with no outside help.

    I bet Kansas has a job for her. They seem to find jobs for all parents who want to go there. Even if it's on the actual basketball staff.

    I can't think of a single time where I saw Barnes playing and didn't see mom watching (they've all been in Ames, but still)

    Re: Good recruiting article regarding Barnes, Dykstra, and Christopherson

    If we are talking about those two comments:
    1) We have the ability to be a championship-caliber program, remember not too long ago we won a few big 12 titles and made it to the dance- ELITE 8

    2) Quote from article "Harrison has to decide not based on which coach he knows the best, but which school is right for him."

    From what I have heard the one coach that he's most familiar/close with is Jean Prioleau at TCU. And by all accounts he will not be enrolling at TCU.

    We all have our own opinions, but this article doesn't work me up.

    Re: Good recruiting article regarding Barnes, Dykstra, and Christopherson

    A friend that works for Nike was in town yesterday and met with the Barnes family as well as Sullivan. He said he has no idea where Harrison will play - he simply wants to get to the next level.

    He was impressed with the family (has met Harrison before though) and said mom will not be swayed with any of that illegal crap (which gives us a shot). She made a point of saying that a few times, from what he told me.

    He felt, as do I, that we need to win some games this year in order to keep Barnes in Ames.
