    If the NCAA

    made a rule that all DI basketball teams could only offer scholarships to in-state players, what would the recruiting classes look like? Here is what I think they would look like:

    IOWA
    PF Zach Bohannon
    C Brennan Cougill
    SF Eric May
    PG Amry Shelby

    DRAKE
    SF Alex Novak
    SF Shawn Keizer
    SG Nate Hutcheson
    PF Reece Uhlenhopp
    PF Seth Van Deest

    IOWA STATE
    PG Cliff Warner
    PF Gabe Knutson
    SF Al Dorr
    SF Ty Lange

    NORTHERN IOWA
    PG Matt Morrison
    PG Mitch Murphy
    SG Trevor Wolsterhoff
    SG Jaron Nash

    Personally, I think this rule would be a great idea because there are always some good players in-state that don't go to the in-state schools and having them come to the local schools would really help the programs.

    I'm sure you ISU fans would really like this rule because you guys could get the #1 player in the nation in Harrison Barnes.

    Re: If the NCAA

    Holy crap can you come up with some stupid threads. If Iowa schools were only allowed to recruit Iowans, we'd get SMOKED in EVERY sport. Hell, the elite ones would pay to go to school elsewhere instead of taking a scholly.

    Personally, I think this thread is about as dumb as the same one you created regarding football.

    you don't know what you're talking about. Being an ISU fan, I don't know why you would hate this rule because that would mean that Harrison Barnes (who is the #1 jr. in the nation by the way) would come play for the cyclones

    We don't have enough D1/BCS talent. There are a few exceptions, such as HB. But........no, bad idea.

    Yes, and we also wouldn't have Lucca, Diante, CB, Colvin, Oliver, Gilstrap, etc. Stupid idea.

    Re: If the NCAA

    yeah but here's the thing: would you rather have out of state players that are elite and think they are god's gift to basketball and don't work as hard OR would you rather have in-state kids that are thankful enough to be playing and work twice as hard?

    I want the better players, and they likely ain't living in Iowa.

    The elite kids. Most of them don't think they're God's gift to mankind.
    All I have to say is this:
    Amry Shelby, or Chris Colvin?
    Taller? Colvin
    Stronger? Colvin
    Quicker? Colvin
    Better ballhandler? Colvin
    Better shooter? Colvin
    Better athlete? Colvin
    Better Defender? Colvin.
    etc. etc.
    This rule would be just plain stupid.

    Wow. Terrible idea. And just how often do the HBs of the world come along here in Iowa?

    Maybe kids that are thankful to be playing and work twice as hard but suck three times as much as our out of state recruits!
