    Kiah Stokes Article

    from the Iowa City paper, so it's Hawkeye slanted, but may be of interest to some.

    Re: Kiah Stokes Article

    You are setting yourself up if you believe she is coming to ISU. She will be a Hawk if she stays in state unfortunately.

    I gotta think she leaves the state though.

    Re: Kiah Stokes Article

    Greg Stokes is really a nice man and I believe when he says Kiah will make her own decision. Unfortunately, I agree with those who say if she stays close to home she will be a Hawkeye.

    Re: Kiah Stokes Article

    Greg said Kiah recently trimmed her list down to a group of schools that include Iowa and Iowa State, but also some of the premier programs in the country, most notably Connecticut and Tennessee.
    Also on Kiah's list according to Greg are Notre Dame, Ohio State, Purdue, Louisville, Rutgers, Maryland, Georgia, Stanford and Oklahoma.
    This is the first time I've actually seen a full list of schools she's considering, so that was definitely informative.

    Just curious and none of my business, but does anyone know what Greg does for a living?

    I don't know, Bluder's had a couple of fine seasons for Iowa now, and has a very good group of young guards. If they get some decent post players, they could be really dangerous the next few years.

    Let's put it this way....I won't be shocked if she goes to Iowa.

    I would be shocked/floored if she went to ISU.

    Back in the day growing up in CR, Greg Stokes and Michael Payne were my childhood idols, it appears Greg is handling the recruitment of his daughter as well as any father could. I have since see the light and of course prefer ISU, but if it comes down to staying in state and not playing at ISU, I hope she stays in state. I just prefer to see the state's best talent stay here even if that means a few more victories for Bluder's team. Who knows though, maybe she will want to stay close to home and still make her own way? Stranger things have happened and until she says Coach Fennelly is not being considered, I will save that as a remote possibility.

    I don't believe Bill Fennelly has given up yet.

    probably a long shot though.

    Re: Kiah Stokes Article

    Anyone know the recruit won/loss battle between Bluder and Fennelly in the state of Iowa? At least for players with offers from both schools?

    I don't, but I would be extremely disappointed if we didn't have the overall edge.

    Kiah's mom, Julie Saddler, has a big voice in this too.
