    Barnes Top 4

    This is his top 4 so far, in no particular order. Could change after his official visits.

    IOWA STATE:
    "I would say they have a lot of good players coming in. Next year they could be on the up, so you never know."
    KANSAS: "I like the player-coach relationship. I feel that all the coaches are able to connect and bond with the players."
    DUKE: "I would say it's definitely a family atmosphere over there. It feels that after you leave and you're alumni you're definitely always accepted back and they really will take care of you."
    NORTH CAROLINA: "I think they're great for player development. I think they have some of the best coaches around for developing players. They're really good at sending players to the next level."

    "I've only seen three schools (Duke, Iowa State, Kansas) up close. It would be premature to establish a leader at this point," he said. "I haven't narrowed down my list to just Duke and North Carolina. I think a lot of people just have that assumption, seeing as they're two elite schools, but there's a lot of other schools in the mix. By the time it could come down, they may not be in the final two, so it's a little premature for me to say I'm either a Duke or a North Carolina guy."

    "Whatever school I decide to go to is going to be a team that will be able to contend for a national championship," he said. "Winning is my first and foremost priority. I would say that whatever school that I go to, I'm going to contribute in some way. Being 'The Man' or not, I'm going to contribute somehow to whatever team I go to."

    Just plain inaccurate would be another way to look at it.

    Re: Barnes Top 4

    I dont beleive he listed a "Top 4"...those were the 4 schools mentioned in the article....the writer may have very well left out schools he didn't feel pertinent to the situation. Harrison is going to be very diplomatic thru the entire process so it's going to be a case of waiting until he makes a declarative statement about any one school before ranking (or eliminating) them.

    Barnes did speak specifically about four of the programs that he's currently considering:
    ...
    At this point, Barnes plans to take five official visits and make his choice on a college sometime during the fall months of his senior year.

    "I will make my decision after I take my official visits. I will take as many as I can," he said.

    if he comes here and we snag a title, forget about mayor. Emperor of Cyclone Nation would be the only title worthy.

    I remember people saying that like 4 or 5 years ago, when that Ivan Chivak ( I can't remember his name) commited to ISU and then decided to enter into the draft where be became a nobody. Wait until Harrison plays before you start calling Iowa State a national contender.

    If he's serious about this statement, that doesn't bode well for the Cyclones.

    Slightly different situation. No one had seen Ivan Chiraev play... we just new he was 7'0'' and had a TON of hype surrounding him. We know what Harrison is capable of. We've seen him play in person. We know what kind of person he is. That being said, your point is stilll slightly relevant.... I'm holding a wait and see approach.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    I know the kid has alot of talent and I'm pretty sure he's good, but saying that he if he goes to ISU, that iowa state is automatically a national contender is crazy. Just wait and see before calling him god.

    This is pretty much the nail in the coffin, he's not coming to Iowa State. I think the kid that went to Gonzaga had us on his list but he said it was really for those who thought he should stay in Iowa but ISU was never really in the running.

    Good luck to him though as long as he doesnt play for Kansas...my money's on the dookies.
