    Re: HB to UNC - C.J. Leslie

    North Carolina was supposed to come for an in-home visit, but cancelled because they decided instead to focus on Harrison Barnes, the nation’s No. 2 recruit.

    “Roy [Williams] must feel pretty comfortable with Barnes because Coach [Steve] Robinson called us and they were saying they didn’t want to hinder C.J.’’s recruiting by putting us on hold to see whether Harrison Barnes was going to take the scholarship,” she said.


    "We are first and foremost an educational institution that values integrity, honesty and treating others with fairness and respect".

    -ISU President Gregory Geoffroy; circa May 2003.

    Re: HB to UNC - C.J. Leslie

    We have "the Closer" (Gary Thompson) working this deal for us. I'm not saying I'm confident, but I'm telling you it's (IMO) down to ISU and UNC.

    Stranger things have happened

    Re: HB to UNC - C.J. Leslie

    Duke fans think this is kind of a recruting tactic against Coach K because Roy is saying that he has stopped recruiting everyone for 2010 except HB while K is still talking with others (Roscoe Smith?). Personally, I think HB is wise enough to realize these schools need to keep in contact with others in case he doesn't go to their respective school and wouldn't see it as a slap in the face. Also, I'm pretty sure if UNC misses on HB, it would only take one call, etc. to have Leslie back on board if that is what Leslie wants.

    Re: HB to UNC - C.J. Leslie

    This article called HB the #2 recruit - it's the first time I've heard that. Who do they think is #1?

    Re: HB to UNC - C.J. Leslie

    He is probably just using the Rivals ratings which has Brandon Knight #1. BTW, I think this guy has been a UNC spinster in the past.

    This is an example of the Leslie family saving face. UNC cut off contact with CJ Leslie at least a month ago because he's a selfish problem child.

    If Gary closes this one, I will kiss him right on the lips.

    Re: HB to UNC - C.J. Leslie

    An interesting development to be sure. Maybe part of the reason why Duke fans seem to think they are out of it.

    We'll see what happens. I hate Duke. I hate Roy. I hate Kansas. I have a 3 out of 6 chance to be devastated next Friday.

    I wonder if this is actually true... (bringing in G Thompson that is)

    Better not be, since if anyone can be called a "booster", he can. For Iowa State basketball, he's about the embodiment of the term.

    I've heard the same thing from someone I know. I first found it hard to believe but I have known the older gentleman for a few years now and I know he golfs with older prominent Ames people/knows Gary.

    hes an alum.. there is some type of loop hole.. aka look at mj for nc


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    Re: HB to UNC - C.J. Leslie

    I'm sure it wouldn't hurt to have Gary Thompson trying to influence HB (if it's legal), but I think NC, Kansas, Duke, etc can throw out a dozen guys a lot more famous and influential than Gary. I really don't think Gary will have much of an influence on what HB does.
