    Is McDermott done recruiting for 2010?

    With two players leaving this season, it only makes sense that we should have two additional openings for 2010. Anyone know if McDermott is recruiting for 2010 still? We have big-time needs for next year, and I don't subscribe to the "bank the scholarships" idea at all. If we have openings, FILL THEM. Get some jucos, like Dendy.

    On the other hand, if McD really is done recruiting for 2010, that should tell us something right there...

    Well I am sure he is keeping his eyes open but he will wait until he knows what is going to happen for sure with Gilstrap and Brackins.

    Yes. The staff is still actively evaluating players across the country.

    Are Wilkins and Clyburn the top two targets?

    I'd say Wilkins is. Not positive about Clyburn. I know that they really like him. A few other names will more than likely surface too.

    Is this your first year following Iowa State mens basketball?

    So with the players signed and/or committed for next year, how many scholarships do we have open? I thought we were filled even with Lucca and LA leaving.

    McDermott does have to be somewhat careful because there is a very small chance that Brackins come back and a somewhat small chance Gilstrap comes back. Both are unlikely and the coaches have to make sure they have targets or when/if those scholarships open. Also, I find it likely that one of the pg's leaves......I hope not, but Colvin is a wildcard and Buckley may not want to stick aroudn.

    I would be surprised if either of those guards left. Buckley only has one more year and no basketball future after that. Colvin is getting more and more time and he will likely be a starter next year if he sticks around. He probably thinks he is an NBA guy so he would think sitting out is holding him back one year from entering. I also think he wants to stay here. Everything I have seen from him has pointed to him staying.

    Buckley is a sophomore who never redshirted, so he actually would have two years if he went somewhere.
    Not advocating his leaving, but he would have two years somewhere, whether that's here or elsewhere.

    I have no clue why I thought he was a junior. Sorry.

    Most of us don't have a clue what you're posting about. You should be sorry.

    Re: Is McDermott done recruiting for 2010?

    I'd be willing to bet that we are replacing more than two players after this season. I am still not convinced at all that Colvin will not transfer and there are rumblings that Dendy will not return (not sure what he would do otherwise), but still wouldn't be surprised if he is not back. I could see us losing Gilstrap, Brackins, Dendy, and Colvin. That would leave us with DG, Christopherson, Boozer, VanderBeeken, and Hamilton as a likely starting lineup. Not exactly a a lineup that will put fear into other teams across the Big 12. I'd bet we are recruiting the juco ranks pretty hard right now.

    Phillips will start next year and if your scenario is true I would bet Ejim starts by the end of the season. FWIW, it doesn't seem like Dendy takes coaching very well. He seems ot get pretty upset when someone tells him he did something wrong. That is why him leaving wouldn't be a huge surprise to me. I haven't heard anything that he will be leaving, I just wouldn't be shocked.

    Re: Is McDermott done recruiting for 2010?

    I guess that I've missed something about Colvin. Why would he leave when it appears he will be the starter next year. He is clearly our best point, although he still lacks the ability to stop penetration.
