    Gilstrap one of Gottlieb's "Ten Freshman I'm Looking Forward to Seeing"

    Link for those of you with ESPN Insider - Doug Gottlieb: Ten freshmen I can't wait to see - ESPN

    Gottlieb doesn't know how to count to ten any better than the conference to the east of us; Gilstrap is actually the 11th guy listed (and he does note that he is definitely not a freshman). I'm not sure what exactly I can and can't do regarding posting or summarizing the ESPN Insider info here, but Gottlieb seems to like Gilstrap a lot, and there is some pretty good company among the other 10, including 5 McDonalds All-Americans (+ John Wall, who was ineligible as a 5th year senior).

    I was a little critical of the ISU fans claiming Gilstrap would be "the answer" or the "missing piece" for next season, especially when there was no video of him on the internet and no one had seen him. However, after reading up on him recently and seeing a highlight video (I posted it if you haven't seen it.) I'm pretty excited to see what he'll bring to the table in the Big 12.

    For those of you without ESPN Insider, I realize this post was largely useless to you, so as an apology, here's a list of how good drivers are by state (Iowa 8th best state) (link), here's one of my favorite sports commercials of all time [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SZjbTq4DcAQ"](link)[/ame], and here's a funny picture of Tyler Hansbrough putting more effort into signing an autograph than anyone in history, ever:

    And, best of all, the slap-chop rap is awesome [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UWRyj5cHIQA"](link)[/ame].

    edit: how do you get YouTube video links to not turn into YouTube videos? My formatting actually looked okay before CF butchered it.

    Really like his ability to shoot and also drive. ISU has not had anyone that could ge off an outside shot and finsh at the rim for quite a while. Of course these highlight films only show good things. He might have bricked the five shots he took before the highlight one. Also, JC defense tends to be pretty weak.

    It will be a lot different playing in front of a real crowd. There were at least 50 people at those games.

    Re: Gilstrap one of Gottlieb's "Ten Freshman I'm Looking Forward to Seeing"

    holy crap. that video was great. He is the type of athlete we have desparately needed the last few years. A single tear will come down from my eyes if he drives hard to the hole and powers one down over a defender next year.

    I love that he can stroke it from outside too.

    You know, you're not too bad kucyclone.

    Big Ham did that at Texas and I did cry.

    Ya, I'm trying to think of one and am coming up empty. Rahshon Clark could really dunk, but his outside shot wasn't that good and those dunks typically weren't drives to the basket.

    Gilstrap fills the giant gap left by Wes Johnson. (we hope)

    Thanks for posting the Gilstrap video KUCy, everything about this post was awesome. I can't believe I watched that Slap Chop rap all the way through... but it was awesome.

    Here's the shamwow one by the same guy. Maybe not quite as good as the slapchop one, but still pretty good:

    Nice. And by the looks of those gyms he was playing in, dude is going to LOVE playing at Hilton next year... and Hilton is going to LOVE having him!

    This is not cool, I should not be looking forward to basketball season so much when football is not even close yet! But it's a GOOD kind of "not cool".
