    New Basketball offer

    From a friend of the family coach Mac has offered son of Ronnie Harris..Harrison Barnes a fresh at Ames High a scholarship. Mac has been great at spoting talent early and it would be huge to get Harrison Barnes on board!

    Re: New Basketball offer

    I see he's listed at 6'4". Does he project as a guard or small forward in college? I know, it's early but I'm just curious as I've not heard anything about him.

    I don't believe you for one reason; NCAA guidelines say that you can't contact high school freshman.

    I am playing nice, just pointing out the flaw in this claim.

    Re: New Basketball offer

    I can back up nickborton's claim on the scholarship offer. My cousin is a friend of the Harris/Barnes family and he told me about the recent offer a few days ago. I didn't want to say anything at first, but since nickb has brought it up, I thought I'd chime in to back him up.

    Re: New Basketball offer

    What position does he project at? I've heard the kid's good before, but I didn't know he was "offering him a scholarship as a freshman" good.

    Re: New Basketball offer

    NCAA rules do in fact say coaches can't initiate contact with recruitable athletes before their junior year, but they can send letters, and nothing prohibits recruits from contacting the coaches to talk and to set up unofficial visits. On visits coaches can offer scholarships, recruits can only verbal as they can't sign until their senior year. We can offer scholarships, it is done quite frequently. Remember Jeff Horner and Dean Oliver at Iowa? This would be our second 2010 comittment.

    Re: New Basketball offer

    i personally dont like expending out scholarhips this early. you never know who is going to come out of the woodwork in 2009 that we wont have a scholarship for in 2010 because we gave them away 4 yrs earlier

    Couldn't agree more. I'm interested in hearing about his game. Has anyone seen him play?
