    Big news!!!!!

    Kyle Kelm is down to Iowa State and Kansas. He is going to take an unofficial visit to Kansas, but unless their campus blows him away, he's a Cyclone. He is "90%" sure he is going to be a Cyclone.

    Not doubting you, at all, but how do you know this stuff? Aren't you only 16? Again, not trying to insult you, it just blows me away that you always have this kind of info.

    Re: Big news!!!!!

    According to a Jan 13 recruiting report, the only big time winning program interested in him is Marquette. Some MVC teams have offered but that type of recruit has been our problem under GMAC. Dont see this type of kid getting us to the promised land, what dont i grasp?

    I think Kansas is a pretty winning program, and they've offered, or are very close. What does that tell you?

    Re: Big news!!!!!

    Not sure this qualifies as "Big news!!!!!", I mean FIVE exclamation points in the title? Now I'd give you two exclamation points, perhaps three since its a Monday, but five? That's just over reaction in my book. Now if the mythical HB committed to us, then that would classify as a five exclamation point thread, but Kelm considering us? Not a five exclamation point thread.

    Sorry, but you're guilty of exclamation point abuse.

    That's your opinion. I think they're a multi-decade flash -in-the-pan that happens to win in spite of their influx of top-flight talent and top-notch coaches.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Great news. This kid looks like he has a great upside. Long and athletic. Has the height and pretty skilled offensively. He looks like he could even get a little taller and could be a great banger with a few pounds too. I think it would be an excellent get especially with adding a Barnes/Ejim to the mix w/ Dykstra and Kadima. Close the deal GMac.

    Re: Big news!!!!!

    I was hoping for Ejim. We desperately need more athleticism. But if this is true, and Kansass liked him, maybe he is athletic enough.

    Why is McDermott scared to take an athletic freak and try to turn him into a basketball player?

    I was under the impression we have extended an offer to Ejim. McDermott can't do more than that.

    How can we take them both? Along with Barnes (5% chance)? Who is going to give up their scholarship. If Ejim is a better player, you don't have to accept Kelm's right away. I don't know that he is a better player but from the videos I've watched, he is much more athletic.

    Can Kelm slash to the hoop? Cause currently we have ZERO people that can do that. I would think that is very important.

    Re: Big news!!!!!

    So, if Kelm commits, what does that mean as far as potentially signing Ejim and HB?
    Is it even possible to sign all three, or would we then be going for Ejim or HB, and not both?
