    Perspective-HB

    I know there are a gazillion million HB threads out there, but I just found this interesting. HB is scout.com's #1 SF in his class. Previous #1's at SF:
    2003: Luol Deng
    2004: Rudy Gay
    2005: Julian Wright
    2006: Kevin Durant
    2007:Kyle Singler
    2008: Demar Derozan
    2009: Lance Stephenson
    2010: HB
    I would say that's some pretty good company: Every player from 2003-2006 is a major contributer in the NBA, and Derozan and Stephenson are both future NBA players. It sure puts just how good HB is in perspective.

    Did I miss something? Did he commit to "not ISU" already?

    How does that show you he is not coming to ISU? What does that perspective matter?

    Beasley + 1 PF = Kansas St (and he had zero ties to KSU)

    I went and watched Barnes play last night and everytime I see him interact on the court I am amazed. He is not your typical Junior. He is mature beyond his years and it shows on the court. I don't think he is going to get wowed by the Dukes/UNC's of the world. He may still go there, but he will go there b/c it is a better fit, not just b/c they are Duke

    Kansas State had hired Beasley's AAU Coach as an assistant coach...that is why he went to Kansas State...not saying we don't have a shot at Barnes, just that Beasley did have ties to KSU.

    That's my point. Sometimes it's not who you are but who you know. We have a very very solid foundation with HB. I wouldn't be surprised to see him pick Duke and I wouldn't be surprised to see him pick ISU.

    That comes from his mom - Shirley keeps him humble, and is not wowed by the coaching celebrities that come calling, and makes sure her son isn't either.
    We still have a great chance.

    Would be shocked if he was one and done. And not b/c he doesn't have the talent. The kid has superstar all over him. His understanding of the game is very advanced and he is an obvious talent. But it is the calmness with which he plays that makes him special.

    I just think education means a lot more to him than most kids, thus he will be in school more than one year.
