    Melvin Ejim

    His name has been brought up as an alternative to HB. I have looked on rivals- they list him as having an offer from ISU. Scout does not list him as a prospect (they don't list any schools of interest in his profile), although I believe there is an article about him visiting ISU.

    why the disparity on those sites?
    can anyone summarize his play, the origin of relationship w/ our staff, and guess at how likely he would be to consider us?

    Thanks.

    I hope he has a good relationship with CB. Same prep school right?

    Re: Melvin Ejim

    Sorry, I've posted this 3 times tonight but I would take Ejim over Barnes in a heartbeat. With Ejim, you get 3-4 years. Barnes, probably one. He is tremendously talented too.

    Like I said, go ahead and blast me. I can take it.

    Re: Melvin Ejim

    He is a guy thats come from off the radar for recruiting services... grew up in canada, then moved to the US and last year didnt really see playing time on the varsity team at brewseter, because they are loaded. this year hes really starting to get some exposure and i think he top 100 talent if people knew about him

    I just hope that they arent waiting to accept and commitment from Ejim just cause were waiting for Barnes.

    no blasting from me. Ejim is a great player and a super athlete. the staff wants both, but i think Ejim will end up ours and i will be really excited if he does. HB we all think is going elsewhere, but it wouldnt shock me if he stuck to the home town. i would be fairly surprised though

    I won't blast. It's a very possible point. Although we should keep in mind HB is a HS jr., and has never played a minute of college ball.... goes for Ejim or any recruit really.

    ....but your point may very well be.

    Ejim has an offer. If he wants to come to ISU he can, regardless of the Barnes scenario

    I know, but sometimes they will "offer" a player, but wont really let him commit because they are waiting on a bigger fish at the same position.

    Re: Melvin Ejim

    Judging by his ESPN rating and other things I've read about him, I bet before it's all said and done Ejim will be a 5* with a boat load of offers. I would love to have HB, but I think Ejim could possibly be just as good by the time he's ready for college.

    If he becomes a 5-star, get prepared. The competition will get a lot stiffer than Providence and Boston College.

    Re: Melvin Ejim

    I dont see him becoming a 5 star, unless Duke or UNC, Kansas come calling after they lose out on HB. But certainly a 4 star would be likely.

    Keno Davis will really not like ISU if we beat him out for Colvin and Ejim.

    That could be bad, but I don't think it's reason to worry. I'm guessing he will be known after this summer. We need him to commit in the next few months and get him to sign the dotted line come November.
