    BuBu Palo

    Does anyone know if any D1 schools have offered BuBu Palo from Ames. I was very impressed watching him in the State Tournament.

    He'll find a home. Think Drake/UNI.

    I'm pretty sure he's playing D1 soccer on a full ride. Can't remember where though. He's even better at soccer than he is basketball.

    I'm pretty sure he doesn't have an ISU offer. I think that is because he likes to drive to the basket and isn't comfortable standing around the three point line doing nothing.

    The kid not only impressed at the State Tournament, but all year long. I am sure an athlete of his caliber will find a place to play. I was impressed by both guards play all season. Congrats Ames

    As good as he is at basketball, you should see him on a soccer pitch. He has incredible quickness, footwork and ball control.


    Hit it hard, every yard

    Reminds me of Kwadzo Ahelegbe(sp). Although he is two inches shorter than him.

    But that would mean watching soccer. No thanks.

    Re: BuBu Palo

    I honestly don't think that BuBu Palo can compete at the D1 Level. While he had pretty good athleticism, I thought the freshman Marcus Paige was a far better prospect and definitely outplayed BuBu. BuBu has no outside shot and made some poor passes and poor decisions with the ball. LinnMar had some decent players but the game should not have been that close.

    Go ahead and hate on me but I wasn't overly impressed.

    Re: BuBu Palo

    BUBU is headed out on a D1 soccer offer....the man is even better in Soccer. He was a very nice leader to the Ames BB. It's to bad the Ames Academic "experts" screwed him on his eligibility this year. It was was definitely a school system snafu.

    I pretty much agree with this, but I do think he could find a "niche" roll coming off the bench at a MVC school.
