    Article: Wilkins is NOT Coming to ISU

    Note the headline says "Wilkins' dad says son not going to Iowa State" rather than "Wilkins not committed to Iowa State."

    Wilkins' dad says son not going to Iowa State - Peoria, IL - Bradley Hoops

    I work in the media world and emailed an editor I know at the Peoria Journal Star (where the article is from). I asked him to clarify their position on the wording of the headline. From his response:

    "the headline is very much intentional and that is as much as I can say. Stay tuned and you will see..."

    I'm glad you're not biased or anything.

    FYI, it says he is not committed. It does not say that he is not coming.

    I would hate for my life to depend on what 18 to 20 yr. olds think and do. On the other hand I don't make 1/2 to 1 mil a yr.

    Re: Article: Wilkins is NOT Coming to ISU

    The headline states: “Wilkins' dad says son not going to Iowa State”. However, the actual quotes from Wilkins’ dad state: "He's not committed to Iowa State.” "He liked it, but he's not committed there.” If the headline was intentional in the way it was written but goes against the quotes from his dad than that is journalistically unethical. At worst he’s still trying to make up his mind but we are still high on his list.

    Daddy needs to let his son make his own decision.

    Re: Article: Wilkins is NOT Coming to ISU

    Sounds like Daddy might be "marketing" his son to the highest bidder. It seems like that is how the (recruiting) game is played now.

    If it had to be one way or another, I'd rather have Hamilton back.

    Cannot we have them both? We could use another center or forward.
