    How is Alex Dorr playing

    He is from my city. Walk on. He has some talent. If he was 3 inches taller he would have been a huge recruit. Kind of like Clinton Mann. Anyone hear how he is doing up against some real competition?

    Re: How is Alex Dorr playing

    Saw him play a couple of times over the summer and played very well. When defenses aren't keying on him he can make it look easy. I talked to him towards the end of July and he said the summer had been good for him. Looks like it was - he is up about 25 lbs. Workouts have really helped.

    Re: How is Alex Dorr playing

    We need to keep getting solid walk ons. Not because we need them to play (no offense to Dorr but I hope he never plays more than mop up minutes) but because what they do in practice is so crucial to success. Having good walk on's is huge!

    Petey and Haluska are some of the best walk on's we have had and (don't take this the wrong way) unfortunately we didn't have the talent to truly take advantage of it. Having guys like that to push the starters everyday in practice...well you get the picture

    Yeah. I think it is a real boost to the program.

    When they're local guys, it just adds a little bit more.

    The best walk-on we have ever had: Jeff Hornacek

    The walk-ons you want are guys who could get schollies to lower level schools, but think they can make it in a higher conference if given the chance, and have the money to pay their own way for a couple of years.

    Did you just call Norwalk a city? I live in Indianola, and I guess that makes us a metropolis

    I think it's fair to call Norwalk a "city" -- it seems to meet all of the criteria. Btw, I wouldn't get too cocky about city size: Norwalk will probably blow by Indianola in population in 20 years or less.

    Full disclosure: I currently have a Norwalk address but will soon have an Indianola address.

    Re: How is Alex Dorr playing

    I know for a fact that Alex turned down schollies at other smaller schools to be a Cyclone. He believes he can help the team and be a part of the team. There are only 15 kids on the campass that play Cyclone Basketball. He is a good kid and may never hit the floor besides being a 4.0 student. Give the kid a break for wanting to be a Cyclone. Given the chance there are alot of kids would love to be in his spot. Never know - MAYBE he a late bloomer.

    My cousin played with Alex on Norwalk's state runner up team. Alex is a great kid, and it was fun watching him everynight light up teams. He wasn't really a take over the game type of scorer. He was more of a player that just played and at the end of the night would end up with 25 points and 10 or so rebounds.

    If he works on his ball handling skills the kid might find alot of time on the floor in the future. He has a very sweet left handed shot. And he was decent behind the arc. If he did end up putting on 25 lbs then watch out.... He will find the floor. Norwalk would of won state if he had that extra weight on him. He got bullied in the championship game by that Iowa recruit from Sioux City.

    Also... Listening to Jon Miller this morning. Norwalk is the 4th largest 3A school. Wouldn't suprise me if they ended up being 4A by the next 10 years. I have a feeling we will easily pass Indianola in population in the next 15 years. Too bad we don't have the places to eat or shop like Indianola.

    But... Saying that... I love Norwalk. It still has that small town feeling but close enough to Dsm for anything you need. Just wish the bike trail in Cummings was connect to Norwalk.

    Norwalk will be 4A in 3 years or less. If I was 3 inches taller I'd be 5'2"
