    Barnes to Make Early Decision

    Per the DSM Register:

    Harrison Barnes says he will make college basketball choice early | DesMoinesRegister.com | The Des Moines Register


    Since he's only taken one official visit and he's now ready to make his decision in the fall instead of spring, I'm wondering if this is a bad sign...

    Maybe he toured the new facility and now he's sold

    I can't see it being a good sign.

    He will make his decision after all his visits, and Iowa State's is last, which I like.

    Re: Barnes to Make Early Decision

    I think he's saying he realizes he'll see what he needs to see by the end of Fall and be able to make a decision. I don't think it hurt or helped our chances.

    I can't imagine 2 months from now when this is all over. What will the internet and CF be like?

    We'll be fine either way. He won't be in college that long. Just don't get to KANSAS.

    I imagine that would greatly depend on what he decides.

    I do. If one of his priorities is a chance to win big, I think he would have seen that realized in the performance and success of this year's team. I mean, if he signs elsewhere, it's not like he can opt out of his LOI next April after we go 30-5.




    Part of this fanbase is like the parable of the blind men and the elephant.

    Who knew?

    Re: Barnes to Make Early Decision

    I think it would have helped had he watched us play a season with a full roster of returning players. Other than that I don't think it helps or hurts.
