    Re: If you were Harrison Barnes, where would you go??

    Iowa State...if I was a top 5 recruit, I would still pick Iowa State...probably to be close to home and have family and fellow Iowans watch me...Iowa State also has a good computer science program so it would be easy.

    2nd. Iowa (yep...close to home and major school)
    3rd. Drake
    4th. Creighton
    5th. UNI

    Were I Harrison Barnes I would probably go to Arby's. The new Bacon & Bleu Roastburger is outstanding. Plus, you get curly fries.

    Re: If you were Harrison Barnes, where would you go??

    If he wants to be his own person... act not like other top recruits... then selecting ISU would allow him to blaze his own trail. At the others, he'll at best just become another great. At ISU he could become the Great.

    If all the hype about Barnes is true (special top recruit that is also abnormally family oriented, smart, caring, and all the other stuff...) then going to Duke or Kansas just doesn't make sense. That's what any recruit would do if offered by those big schools. What's different and special about that... nothing. Going to a school like ISU, MN, or other non-top 5 school would show that it's more than just taking the easiest path.

    I'll not only be disappointed in that ISU will lose out on a great BB talent, but I'll be disappointed that Barnes is just another top 5 recruit... nothing special. Just taking the easy route... big name school. How original.
