    Yes! Hopefully she can provide some muscle on the inside for the next few years...

    You're thinking of Taylor Greenfield, her sophomore teammate. Zimmerman verballed to ISU before her freshman year of high school, so she didn't get a ton of recruiting attention.

    I watched around a dozen Linn-Mar GBB games, and Zimmerman was the only post player I saw all season that figured out how to score on Kiah Stokes. It took Ballard three quarters to figure out that she could do it, and Linn-Mar had them blown out pretty badly by then (Ballard's only loss this season). She was 8-16 for 22 points, most of them with Stokes guarding her.

    She's willing to shoot from outside, but she is the post player in Ballard's offense so she didn't do it much. Defensively she was often a 4 instead of a 5. I see her as a true PF at ISU kind of like Arlen.

    That was Taylor Greenfield the sophmore on Ballard, she has a few others after her as well. Crossing the fingers on her

    Between Stokes and Greenfield, they have to be two of the highest recruited sophs in the country, right?

    They are both just amazing, I hope we get one or both of them.

    I saw some highlights on this girl on the news. She looked to be a little heavy and slow. Hopefully it was the t.v. I have never seen her play before.

    Were you watching SD stretched to widescreen?

    She's built like a PF. Her body type seems similar to Arlen's. ISU has had so many finesse posts that it's nice to get some with more of a power style (like Arlen).

    During the championship game Anne O'Neil was talking about how she has some similarities to Angie Welle -- particularly her left-handednes and her ability to run the floor. On cue, Zimmerman beat Heelan down the court in transition for a layup. I'm not too worried about her speed.

    That makes two miss Iowa's going to Iowa State in three years. Hope she is as good as Bolte.

    Actually that's three in four years...Mosman was Ms. Basketball the year before Bolte was! Fennelly can definitely recruit the state well...

    Some points of comparison:

    By my count, Stokes has faced four front-court players who made the 4A Register all-state team.

    City High's Virginia Johnson, a 6-1 soph who made the Register 4A first team, was 1-2 for 3 points against Linn-Mar in the only meeting between the two teams. Stokes only had 3 blocks in the game since City High didn't really go inside, but she did have 24 points and 12 rebounds.

    In the 4A semifinal, 6-1 Ames jr Kionna Kellogg (Register 4A 2nd team) was 1-10 against Linn-Mar for 8 points (she hit 6 FT). Stokes had 6 blocks in the game.

    Camille Marie-Lidd, 6-1 sr from CR Washington (Reg 4A 2nd team) was 1-17(!) for 5 points against Linn-Mar. That was the night Stokes had her 16 point-21 reb-16 block triple-double.

    Emma Krieger-Kittle, 6-0 sr from Iowa City West (Reg 4A 2nd team) was 2-14 for 4 points against Linn-Mar. Stokes had 9 blocks in the game.

    That's a combined 5-43 (11.6%) for the only four Reg 4A All-State posts Linn-Mar faced this season. Zimmerman was 8-16 against Linn-Mar (Stokes had 3 blocks).

    Stokes may be a top 5 national recruit, I would think. I saw her Dad yesterday. I should have given him some ISU swag.
