    Possible 2010 MBB Recruiting Targets

    Here are a few names to keep an eye on in the coming weeks as far as Iowa State's men's basketball recruiting goes. They could attract some interest from ISU.

    Bo Barnes – 6-foot-4 SG – Scottsdale Christian Academy

    Barnes averaged 19.2 points per game as a senior and is a legitimate 3-point threat. In an interesting note about Barnes, his father, Jake Barnes is a professional rodeo man. Barnes is also receiving interest from Hawaii, South Carolina, Oregon State and Penn State. Hawaii is going through a coaching search right now so I'd scratch them from the list. Northwestern’s Kevin Coble also went to Scottsdale Christian Academy. The two are supposedly very similar players.

    Jesse Perry – 6-foot-8, 210-pound PF – John A. Logan CC

    This one seems like a long shot to me. Perry has a handful of offers from the likes of Arizona, South Carolina, Missouri, Oklahoma State etc. I’m assuming that Iowa State will try to sneak in this thing late but do not hold your breath.

    Andre Clark – 6-foot-9, 225-pound PF – John A. Logan CC

    Like Perry, Clark is an Illinois JUCO prospect who holds some quality offers. Ole Miss, Penn State and TCU look to be the major players in Clark's recruitment.

    I’ll keep working the men’s basketball recruiting front for you all in the coming weeks. Stay tuned.

    I'd really like it if we pushed hard for Andre Clark. Don't know anything about him, but 6'9" 225 is exactly what we need.

    Why do I feel like I was on a game show and got a "parting gift"...what they used to call a consolation prize?

    EDIT: No offense to this Mr. Barnes. I'm sure he knows that he is not a top 5 recruit this year.

    Are there no centers out there to target? I was really hoping for another big body or two.

    Don't need centers to play necessarily. A 6'9 athletic PF like Clark is about the same as a 6'11 stiff center

    I'd rather go with a 3 guard, 2 forward lineup

    Kind of Mizzou-style. I wouldn't mind being configured for that style of play.

    Or like we played 1/2 the year whenever Ham was on the bench. Dendy and Brackins aren't centers but they were both on the court at the same time and we did OK

    Apparently the Friars have some interest in Andre Clark. And for that matter, Clyburn and Wilkins.

    Dendy on the back end of a press, in a shot-blocking role, seems like something with a whole lot of potential.

    I think 2 PFs is just fine. If you've got two guys that can be physical and can jump (and even block out), you're fine.

    Re: Possible 2010 MBB Recruiting Targets

    Where are we on the MCC kid that scored like 50pts?
    If we get him are we only going after one other?

    Jake Barnes (Bo Barnes's father) isn't just a rodeo man, he's a 7 time world champion team roper, and is considered one of the all-time greats in his sport.

    We'll we need him on the team for practice ala the Mighty Ducks 2! He can rope players getting out of line for Mac.

    Re: Possible 2010 MBB Recruiting Targets

    I no we need bigs but it would be nice to get an athletic guard who has an outside shot that is in the mold of a true 2 and not a pg. Am i missing something in phillips because i hear he is more of a pg/slasher and not an outside shooter.
