    Re: Basketball Recruiting: Uthoff talks timeline

    I really hope that his Uncle Dean will help influence his decision. Generally former Cyclones are passionate about Iowa State and that passion is contagious.

    Here is a funny story about Dean.
    There is a student group at Mizzou known as The Antlers. (they formed in 1976)
    They are an organized group of rowdy University of Missouri student basketball fans known for heckling the opposing teams.

    Iowa State center Dean Uthoff was the target of an Antler prank when they obtained the phone number at his dorm in Ames and called him. They posed as huge fans and wanted to show their appreciation by ordering him a pizza, and they told him it should be downstairs in his lobby in a half hour. Uthoff fell for the scam and waited nearly an hour for the pizza. The Antlers later called again to ask how the pizza tasted. Two days later when Iowa State visited Mizzou, all of the Antlers were waving empty pizza boxes at him when he ran onto the court.

    He may actually need a little time to get to know all the new players before he can make a decision on where he fits in with ISU. Obviously it's Fred's job to let him know his intended role but you still like to know the guys you are going to spend the next 4-5 years with on the court.

    Re: Basketball Recruiting: Uthoff talks timeline

    I totally agree with Chris on this and it's kind of a "general" statement for recruits in the state of iowa overall too, but the longer it lasts the worse it looks for Iowa State.

    Fred Hoiberg needs to make locking up GOOD instate talent his #1 priority. He's an amazing selling point to instate kids. Go get these great Iowa kids like Uthoff, Paige, Jok, etc. and the other state's good kids will follow. But locking down Iowa should be #1 priority.

    I wonder why Iowa has not got involved yet? You'd think a good recruit 30 miles from home would be appealing.

    I know he can run the floor pretty well for a big guy.

    Because Iowa runs this never heard before offense called "uptempo" where only elite athletes like Cully Payne and Brennan Cougill can play in. This offense brought in by Coach Fran is going to completely change the way the game is played. Iowa will be better right away and 5 star athletes will line up at the door to play in front of huge crowds at Carver Hawkeye Arena. So they have bigger fish in the sea than Uthoff.

    LOL. In all honesty, McCaffery probably feels either a) He can do better, or b) He doesn't have much of a chance.

    I'm going to guess B. After this summer Uthoff will be a borderline 4 star guy who has offers from a lot of Big 10 schools.
