    Chris Colvin First Team All-Public League

    Chris Colvin was just selected to the first-team All Public League Team in Chicago. Here is what the Chicago Sun-Times had to say about him:

    On a Young squad loaded with nine Division I players, Chris Colvin may be the best. The 6-2 guard headed for Iowa State possesses blazing quickness, deadly jump shots, and is virtually impossible to stop going to the basket.
    ‘‘Chris is a four-year varsity player and has been the glue to our program,’’ Young coach Tyrone Slaughter said. ‘‘He’s a great ballhandler, has a tremendous ability to finish at the rim, and makes everyone around him better.’’

    Can't wait to see him in a Cyclone uniform.

    No expectations, but if he can do all that, its what we have been needing..at least one piece.

    I like the combo of him and Gilstrap coming in next year. If Craig decides to stick around, this team could be dangerous next year.

    I really hope he can step in and do this right away.

    Hopefully first year expectations will be held in check for him. If I remember correctly Buckley has his way in highschool as well.


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    Colvin has shot at Mr. Basketball for Illinois, although I would call them slim.

    Re: Chris Colvin First Team All-Public League

    I agree on holding expectations, but I recall Buck was considered more of a distributor not a slashing scorer.


    Cyclone
    Iowa State became the Cyclones after they leveled Northwestern in 1895. As the Chicago Tribune (9/29/1895) noted:
    'Struck by a Cyclone
    It Comes from Iowa and Devastates Evanston Town'

    I believe that Colvin is a bit better than Buckley was coming out of high school

    And I understand he is texting HB all the time, recruiting him hard.

    Re: Chris Colvin First Team All-Public League

    Maybe a second coming of Dedric Willoughby?!? He might not play like him as frosh, but when he gets to be an upperclassmen, he will be the focus of the team IMO.

    Do you know what exactly he has been texting him? like, you should come to ISU, this thing is turning around, or what?
