    I'd say ISU has about no chance with this kid. UTEP then UK or KU.

    He said ISU first when talking about schools interested, so that could be a good sign.

    I doubt that many teams are trying to get this kid since he's 2010, 2010 has pretty much passed.

    something seems fishy here I never remember hearing about him with Mizzou either

    I read his nephew is 6'4" which was about the same height as KP. That's probably where the similarities end if DeShun is a guard. KP was our power forward and a pretty good one at that. I loved watching him work his way into the lane.

    Kenny Pratt remains one of my all time favorites. That guy did more stuff in the paint for his height than anyone else.

    Re: 2010 Guard Target

    Hoiberg's been pretty plain about a simple uptempo offense with a pressing defense. If that's a selling point for the other programs, then it's a selling point for us.

    Normally it is. There is a pretty strong correlation to who is listed first and who is in the mix at the end. I'm not saying we are the favorite by any means but normally a team he isn't thinking strongly about wouldn't be the first out of his mouth.


    It's all snark from here on out

    As a social worker, would he have more frequent contact with his uncle?
