    More on hoops recruiting...

    Here are a few nuggets on hoops recruiting. Nothing new or earth-shattering here.

    Re: More on hoops recruiting...

    Do our resident experts have an opinion on these two prospects?

    I am a Wilkins guy but Buckner would be a great pickup too. I think that if Gilstrap gets another year, Buckner will be ISU's to have. If Gilstrap doesn't get that year, it'd be much more difficult.

    ISU has been actively recruiting Wilkins for quite some time and from all of the information I've been able to gather, this guy is the real deal.

    Re: More on hoops recruiting...

    From what I've read, I think Wilkins would be a very solid get, at this stage.

    Athletic and skilled, although probably needs to add weight/strength.

    I like that he'd have 3 years...



    Either way, we NEED a post player addition to our roster for next year IMO.

    Both these guys need another 10-15lbs.

    Re: More on hoops recruiting...

    Wilkins would be terrific get from what I understand, big time talent but two things:

    1.He is and has been committed to Bradley, why does anyone think he won't follow through on that? He hasn't said anything to the contrary.

    2.NJCAA ruled him ineligible for this season(Lucca rule) and the NCAA says he would also have to sit out 5 games next season. There were rumors that he is now, just going to go back to Europe and play professionally.

    So is Wilkins really is in play? that would be good news if Brackins or Gilstrap don't return

    Re: More on hoops recruiting...

    Can someone put the chances of Gstrap getting another year in a percentage ,, 50/50 worse or better.... I am not familiar with the intricacies of what needs to happen there.

    Not committed to Bradley...Juco with 3 to play. To my knowledge he is not going back to France.

    Wilkins was committed to Bradley at one time. Not anymore.

    Is Wilkins hurt? He did not play this last game.

    Wilkins played 5 games with a pro team when he was 16, but did not get paid. In response, the NJCAA Lucca'd him, and he can't play all year. He has already checked w/ the NCAA, and he will be eligible once he reaches division one. He is currently suing the NJCAA in an effort to let him play.

    Re: More on hoops recruiting...

    Another big man makes sense. JVB is a senior so we'd be a little thin next year with just Hamilton, Dendy, and Pomlee in the post. Dendy has to show he can stay healthy and Pomlee still has a lot of work to do it looks like. Next year we really need Ham to step up and become a force in the paint on offense!

    Gilstrap's status won't be known prior to the spring signing date will it?

    I personally don't think this will ever happen.
