    Sorry if this has been mentioned/posted elsewhere...

    HB is keeping a diary on his official visits on highschoolhoop.com.

    Here's his personal account of the NC visit:

    Ha ha I love it, hopefully HB left out the part about the “twins” waiting for em in the room like in “he got game” or “blue chips”
    Lol….come on unc girls! Don’t let us down! Ur in college its okay
    Ask not what your university can do for you, but what you can do for your university!!! Lol"


    Oh Cheven, you're so funny. UNC has all of the things he could want. Its a rough road ahead for ISU.

    Re: Harrison Barnes' diary

    They set the standard for what I’m looking for on my other visits. It gave me a good marker for other schools.
    Serious, valid question...

    In what ways are we going to compete with his UNC visit experience?

    Family is a huge one. Be "the man" at Iowa State where UNC has 5 "the men" on the floor all the time.

    IMO, just depends what's more important to HB? Being close to family/friends or what you read about above.

    Harrison should think about that, he will get all the press he wants but does he want to play for GM

    We can't. But I think Harrison is smart enough to realize that it isn't like that when you go to college. Vince Carter and MJ don't hang around campuses.

    If you want to hang with those guys more, make the NBA! And he can do that at ISU!!!

    Re: Harrison Barnes' diary

    Maybe the practice facility will help. ISU's business program is on the rise. Close to home. Knows the players/coaches already.

    Re: Harrison Barnes' diary

    Here's my opinion (obviously biased). Harrison can follow all the other blue chip athletes, like lemmings, to the elite programs in the country where they have the best chance of winning a national championship - sort of like climbing Mt. Everest, but beginning your ascent only a few thousand feet below the summit. Or Harrison can show that he is, indeed, as special a person/athlete as many think he is by putting his home town university on his shoulders and carrying them to the summit, all the way from sea level!
