    Basketball Recruiting: Uthoff still wide open

    Jamie Johnson tells me that the rumor of Jarrod Uthoff leaning towards Iowa isn't true.

    Here's more.

    Re: Basketball Recruiting: Uthoff still wide open

    Why would somebody want to go to Iowa to play basketball? That is a serious question. What would be the recruiting pitch?


    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

    Is this kid really that good? I haven't seen much of anything in the terms of evaluations from Rivals/ESPN.

    Just based on his measurables, the tape I've seen and other's description of his game, his game sounds a hell of alot like Alex Thompson did coming out of high school.

    you'll probably get slammed but I question whether he can guard the wing in the Big XII. I wonder if he'd be a roll player.(designated shooter off the bench)I think UNI is his best option, could do very well as a step out 4 in their system.

    Disagree. Has more skills than Thompson. Probably not as athletic in high school as Thompson was. But a better handle and passer for sure

    That doesn't sound all that desirable to me.

    You could say the same about ISU

    The fanbase seems to at least care about the basketball team here, would be the main difference.

    Re: Basketball Recruiting: Uthoff still wide open

    Alex Thompson might have had a decent career had he had a half decent coach in his career. If this Uthoff kid has even the moderate skills that Alex had, I am hopeful he can have a better career wherever he goes

    Thompson in high school was touted as a very skilled big man. He moved very well for his size and had a solid jumpshot. As far as I remember, he was also projected as more of a wing player than a PF coming out of high school, much in the same way as Uthoff. Everything I see on him is "he does 'something' well for his height". That was the same thing you'd hear over and over about Thompson...

    Iowa fans care about Iowa basketball, they are just very hungover from the end of the Alford/Lickliter era.

    Re: Basketball Recruiting: Uthoff still wide open

    The fans care about the basketball team is the biggest difference between ISU and Iowa basketball, as well as the fact that the Big 12 is far and away a better b-ball conference and that ISU actually has the ability to put some guys in the NBA.


    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again.

    12,000 fans vs. an empty house is a slight difference
