    Re: Meet LaRon Dendy

    I think we are all ready to see what Gilstrap can do but I have to say seeing what kind of player Dendy is is a very close second. The guy obviously has some major talent and we may have got us a steal because of his injury last year. We'll see.

    “I love Ames,” Dendy said. “It’s peaceful and relatively quiet. It’s just school and basketball for me, and that is the way I like it.”
    I really like that quote.

    Re: Meet LaRon Dendy

    In the picture from the article it looks like Dendy has really gained some muscle. I hope he can be the "energy" guy off the bench. We should be a really good rebounding team this year.

    What makes you think he'll be coming off the bench?

    Re: Meet LaRon Dendy

    My guess is that the player that starts at center or the off-guard depends on who we are playing.

    They say in the article 230. I thought he came in at 215 or something. I like 230. He could probably go as high as 240 with his frame.

    Re: Meet LaRon Dendy

    He seemed fairly aggressive during the CCL this summer. I know that may not mean anything during the real season, but we could use a bit of a banger. On the downside, he seemed to pout at times. Either way, I'm looking forward to seeing him play.

    Re: Meet LaRon Dendy

    The more I research Dendy, the more I like him. The attitude expressed in these quotes makes me feel even better. Sans injury, Dendy could surprise big time and I'm glad we've got him.

    Re: Meet LaRon Dendy

    I am teaching in South Carolina.. i talked to our head basketball coach and he said mr Dendy is a freak of a player. Also, Iowa state was recruiting one of our players but he signed with South Carolina.. He was being recruited by all the SEC schools in football and basketball and would be a star sprinter for any school. I had conversations with Coach Robinson, they are very big on Dendy and says they are focusing on recruiting athletes. He would star6t for the football team. as he was a very good receiver in high school Look for more of up tempo this year. I miss going to the Hilton. Also, the athletes down here are freakish. We were on ESPN 2 years ag. We have a slam dunk contest in the spring 12 students and 2 coaqches enter it. High school football is year round with spring practices and a spring game. All football players have football 4th block to lift. My hope with having Mr. Dendy is we start a pipeline to Ames. I am new to this site. thank you

    I would love to see this. Maybe Coach Rhoads will give him a try out in the spring.

    Depending on the team that we're playing, Dendy could create matchup problems paired with CB. Of course, a lot depends on whether Hamilton improves as much from last year to this as he did from HS to last. If so, he's a beast.

    I think that we'll also see some combos with Gilstrap at the 4. All in all, I think that Mac has a great deal of flexibilty with this squad.
