    2008 Basketball Recruiting Note

    Iowa State has been recruiting 2008 big man Josh Crittle for quite some time now and I think it's noteworthy that last week, Iowa jumped in and offered Crittle.

    Josh told me this earlier this weekend over the phone.

    Right now, I'd say that Iowa State is probably in 3rd to land Crittle behind Marquette and Depaul.

    Look for more MBB recruiting info in my weekly Ames Tribune column this Thursday.

    Re: 2008 Basketball Recruiting Note

    thanks for the info, it seems every big man we go after seems to be favoring someone else. i am hoping for terrance jennings and maybe an L.A. Pomlee. i dont think we need gibbs with buckley coming in. jennings and brackins would be one heck of a front court with wesley johnson, and all the good guards we got coming in.

    I haven't seen Pomlee play but from what i've read/heard he won't be getting an ISU offer.

    Not to sound like a negative Nancy, but does this Crittle offer mean the staff is less confident about signing another more sought after player? Just curious.

    He said Iowa offered. When did we? Have we? Was it recent?

    He is a 4 star recruit.

    I'm not so sure ISU is still interested in Crittle.

    Psyched, you are in tune to ISU's recruiting to an extent. How are you feeling about our recruiting right now? In generic terms.

    Re: 2008 Basketball Recruiting Note

    It was disappointing to lose Brett Thompson. He was one who I thought we had a pretty good shot at. The focus seems to remain landing 2 big guys for the '08 class. There is one other big who I think we are still very much in the hunt for but I don't want to mention his name. Zeller, Breshers, and Morgan are pretty much lost causes. Mac's staff is very resourceful; we just need to have patience. Eventually, they will land another good one.
