    Cyclone Fans Really Want HB

    Hey, I got tired of the thread titled about some other school wanting Harrison, so I figured I'd start one a little more relevant.

    And heck, if in the Eighties I once naively wrote a letter to one of Jeff Grayer's Flint (MI) buddies urging him to come to Iowa State, I can at least start a thread about how I (and WE) want him to come to Iowa State. I'm thinking this should be better than a plane on a treadmill, and we can all, all of Cyclone Fanatic, let alone Cyclones everywhere, tell Harrison just how much we want to see him in a Cardinal and Gold Cyclone uniform.

    And stay within NCAA rules.

    So honestly, Harrison, when you read this humongous thread, if I once desperately wanted Glen Rice to come to Iowa State, you can just imagine how much more I want for you to be a Cyclone. And not just because you're a hometown kid, the missing piece, or because I loved watching your Dad play on some of my favorite Cyclone teams.

    But I'll kick it off, and other folks can chime in. Lots of other folks. Cyclones.

    Please, Harrison, come to Iowa State! Go Cyclones!!!

    We do? He sure did not look all that incredible last night. He is a good HS player, but he did not dominate.

    Ooh, good start. That'll impress him.

    I did tend to notice that when Harrison drove the lane he got swarmed with all of those low body fouls that refs never call nowadays. Just like CB kept getting pounded with.

    I respectfully disagree.
    For a junior, in high school, a player that was occasionally double and triple teamed last night, I thought he looked as though he could score, inside, anytime he felt like it.
    I don't think that Harrison is the type of showboat player, that hogs the ball and has to score everytime he touches the ball.
    I think he GETS IT, that basketball is a team sport, and he appreciates what his fellow team mates bring to the contest.
    Just my opinion of course.
    By the way Harrison, if you ARE reading these posts, all of your Ames fans, the state of Iowa fans, and your family members, would really appreciate you staying in Ames so that they can see you play with out having to travel too far.

    Re: Cyclone Fans Really Want HB

    I would love to see Harrison stay in Ames and don the Cardinal and Gold. He knows the players, probably knows the coaches, and knows the fans. There are no expectations from us other than go to class and play ball - I'm confident that a kid of his talent and work ethic will find success at Iowa State.

    Harrison, choose to be a legend and you have my vote to be the new "Mayor".

    Why is Duke so focused on this 5 star recruit. That is what I'm getting to ACLONE.

    Re: Cyclone Fans Really Want HB

    HB, if your listening, I want to tell you a little story.

    In October 2002 I was in Kuwait serving with the 3rd Infantry Division from Ft. Stewart, GA. I was fortunate enough to have internet access, but there was not much for tv. It was during this deployment that Iowa State was up to #11 in the nation in football and we were preparing to play Oklahoma, a game that would put us on the map nationally.

    After working all day, I stayed up all night with my laptop reading each play as it popped up on ESPN online. We got crushed, and dejected I got about an hour of sleep and got to work the next day.

    Even though Seneca and the boys didn't pull it off, their early season victories kept me going during a lot of long days. Your choice to stay in state will not be easy, but it will make a big difference to all the proud Iowans serving overseas. You are not doing anything wrong by choosing Duke, UNC, or Kansas. It is just a matter of examining how proud you are of your hometown and home state.

    We are very proud of you as a high school student and will continue to be no matter your choice. I hope everything works out for you.

    Godspeed

    I think he could, but he lets the game come to him, rather than forcing it. I was impressed with his sheer ability and patience.

    Big deal, he can dunk. He did not take over the game like someone that hyped up should have. It was not like watching Hoiberg in high school.
