    HB UCLA Visit

    The Harrison Barnes Diary: Official visit to UCLA | 2K Sports Presents High School Hoop Powered by Dime

    Sounds like they really impressed him, and prob. his mother as well... good news is that he will be writing about his visit to iowa state!

    I don't believe he is writing about ISU. Only officials I think

    Re: HB UCLA Visit

    Wow - lunch with John Wooden.

    That would probably seal the deal with me. At least in that "being impressed/awe" category. The opportunity to do so would be, by itself, enough reason to take an official out there and put UCLA on my short list.

    kcclones....

    Well, I’ll let you guys know all about the Iowa State visit next week.

    He said at the end something like, "I will tell you guys how Iowa State went"

    Maybe he could have lunch with Johnny Orr, he would be funnier than John Wooden.

    I was surprised to read that he would be writing about his visit this weekend. That's good, I think. I was one who thought the 6th visit to Iowa State was maybe just to placate us, but if he is spending time writing about the visit, maybe he is serious.

    I'd guess HB has had plenty of conversations with Johnny over the years.

    Re: HB UCLA Visit

    There you go.....Johnny Orr, Jeff Grayer, Fred Hoiberg.

    Actually, I'm not sure how much of that sort of stuff we can do for an unoffical visit. I know that we can take him to sporting events, but can we provide him with any meals? If he is eating lunch with our coaches does he have to pay for it himself?

    Yeah, actually I would think lunch with Johnny would be a lot more entertaining. He would definitely have you laughing more with his stories. Wooden's so old, he's probably not the greatest lunch date.

    I agree, getting the opportunity as a basketball player to speak with arguably the greatest basketball mind in the history of the game would be fairly boring

    Re: HB UCLA Visit

    I don't understand how anyone who visits UCLA and USC would choose USC in ANY sport... Let's see, live in one of of the nicest niegborhoods in the world or live in one of the nastiest hoods in the world????

    LA is not that great. I lived in the area for three years and since then it has gone downhill. Ames is better.


    CFH HMagic bball season next year.

    One more can't hurt!

    This kid has met everyone over this recruitment from Jordan to Wooden. Hard to compete with all of this.
