    So seriously... do we go after Vette now?

    With us hemorrhaging players right now, do we take a chance on the Vette kid? I know he's still committed to Indiana State but he is going thruogh a coaching change and I don't think his current coach could begrudge him the opportunity of playing in the Big 12. Word is he's a legit 6'9" and he's really strong as well.

    I'm a unashamed Iowa homer and I think we should take the native Iowans if there is potential there, especially if we have open schollies. Why not? If Dodie leaves as well, that would be 2 open.

    Re: So seriously... do we go after Vette now?

    I say no. While I think Vette is a good player and would like to get him, he still has signed w/ Indiana St and had not asked for a release last I heard. I know we would not think kindly towards other schools trying to steal our recruits during a coaching change.

    It is pretty obvious though that we have a huge need for a big man. I don't think we can hold of til 08' either. Cem Dinc? Maybe. I am not huge on him but we need a body.

    What did Vette do for PPG and RPG as a senior?

    It would be like trading one mid-major player for another. I say no, but I haven't seen him as much as some of you have.

    Seems like it's been the story here for about 10 years now. I can't remember the last time we could go 9 deep with legit scholarship players.

    Re: So seriously... do we go after Vette now?

    The funny thing is that how many times have we heard that one of our advantages of the next year would be our depth... then it comes next season and whether it is injuries, transfers, or suspensions, etc we are desperate for anyone to play!

    Might want to go after a junior college player at this point. Why not?

    Re: So seriously... do we go after Vette now?

    Vette is legit, he runst the floor well, he can shoot, he can post up with the left or right, and he doesn't get pushed around in the paint being 6'9 220.

    He was very lethal in high school (even though in class 3-A), he is versatile, and i really think he can contribute at the power foward.

    Now we're speaking in King James. What has this team come to?


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    Re: So seriously... do we go after Vette now?

    I think we need to find a BIG for 2007. Hopefully we can find someone who can stay for all four years and become big contributors in years three and four of their stay here. I think we'll have enough guards that we'll make do.

    Re: So seriously... do we go after Vette now?

    Until Vette asks to opt out of his scholly and i've heard no indications the he is going too, i think it is pretty silly to talk about him coming to ISU. Further, i think he has previously stated that he doesn't think to highly of MCD. I think ISU can do better then Vette.

    Vette signed an LOI didn't he? You can't recruit a signed guy. Not cool.

    Yes, he did. There is some speculation (message board chatter) that he is going to ask for a release because of the coaching change at Indiana State. But currently he still has a signed and honoring an LOI to ISU (the other one).
