    There may be more involved now. Sounds like his heart is set on Kentucky. I would be extremely extremely surprised if we get him.

    I would be surprised if we get him but I have heard a lot of things lately about him so I know we are on his short list as of right now. I don&#39;t know how many high majors will end up offering but he seems pretty impressed with ISU up to this point.


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    The only national press Jeffrey Jordan will get while playing at a high-major University is that "Michael Jordan&#39;s son is a bench warmer."

    My guess is that if MJ showed up to some games, people would fill Hilton just to see him. As lame as that is, you know it&#39;s true. So, more tickets bought.

    Plus, you have to think that MJ could maybe be talked in to writing a little check that could help the athletic department.

    I sure hope this young man gets a scholarship offer somewhere. The financial strain on his family to pay tuition could prevent him from attending the college of his choice. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/rolleyes.gif[/img]

    MJ wasn&#39;t exactly a stud coming out of High School either. He worked his *** off to be the best. If JJ has his dad&#39;s work ethic he could really become a good player.

    That was a great post and a great point. I think it could be cool to have a "Jordan" play at ISU

    I&#39;m with some of you...lets pray we get him. Just think from a marketing standpoint Jordan on the back of an ISU jersey&#33; Holy crap man I would buy a 100 myself&#33; It would be an honor even if he may not be the airman himself...remember he still has the genes. I&#39;d give him the ball for the final shot every time anyway...all in the genes&#33;



    Plus every and I mean every ISU game would be sold out...just to see MJ himself.

    Here&#39;s my take on Jeffrey Jordan...

    Positives

    - Brings a known name to the program
    - He&#39;s got his daddy&#39;s DNA, who bloomed late
    - Even if he rides the bench each week, he and his father will help sell tickets
    - Possibility of the elder Jordan making a sizable donation to the ISU athletic fund

    Negatives

    - Not a big-time player, may not be worth a scholarship
    - Create a distraction by his father being around, fans more concerned with seeing Michael than supporting ISU
    - Pressure on the coaching staff to play Jordan, regardless of his abilities

    If anyone has any items to add to either list, please do so. I think that the positives outweigh the negatives. The only glaring negative is the scholarship issue.

    Other than that, if Jordan wants to come to ISU, I say go get him&#33;

    The only reason we should offer JJ or any kid for that matter is if he is the best guy we can get at the position. If JJ doesn&#39;t fit that description, I say we look elsewhere. All this other stuff is crap.

    I think a lot of people are blowing this way out of proportion. If the kid is just a bench warmer, I doubt there will be much buzz after the initial recruitment splash. If he is good enough to play, there would a lot of pressure on him. Iowa State may be a better than a place like Kentucky to minimize the pressure and let him build a name for himself.
