    Any news on some new possible recruits???

    Is there any new news on any possible recruits that MacD might be tryin to lure to Iowa State still for next season. I heard he immediately went on the recruiting trail once the season ended so im wondering if anyone has heard any rumors?

    Are they chasing Thames, or has that ship sailed?

    Have not confirmed one way or the other....doubtful, a lot has changed between now and when we were recruiting him.

    It's also a recruiting dead period for the next week or so. So don't expect any commits for a few days at the very earliest.

    Maybe, I read the article wrong...but that all came from Thames' side, not ISU's...

    I would be somewhat surprised if they were still after him. He would have to sit out a year, so there would be no immediate help. So, if you can't get immediate help, might as well wait and try to get someone in 2010 -- assuming they are confident in getting some of the talent they are after like Ejim, Barnes, Kelm, etc. Guard spot doesn't seem to be a huge need with Garrett, Buckley, Christopherson, Boozer, Staiger and Colvin.

    As the others have said, he won't have to sit. The biggest thing to look at here is building depth. We haven't had that for a long time.

    Thames, IMO, would be redundant to Colvin. He's a good scorer at the HS level, but he almost exclusively gets his points by driving, and is not a shooter in any sense of the word. I'm not sure the staff would want to sign a player that is a PG-only when Colvin is already the headliner of the class.

    That said, if the staff felt like they could eventually fit together on the court (i.e. Stinson & Blalock), Thames is a major talent.

    That's why, I doubt we take him...we were recruiting him before Colvin...Probably don't need two point guards in the same class. IMO if Brackins stays we are looking for a 2/3 combo and if Brackins leaves 3/4 combo.
