    I think its going to come down to Iowa or ISU. I hope he makes the right choice.

    Good stuff as always Chris. I saw you mentioned Crittle won't be attending the ISU Elite camp... are we starting to get an idea of who all is going to be there? Thanks,

    That really sucks he won't make that. If it was me, during my summer vacation, I would more readily do something "sport" related, than church related. He better be going on a sweet trip to not come over to Ames.

    Yeah I'm hoping to do an Elite camp preview in the next couple weeks. I also know that Gibbs will be playing in an AAU tourney in New York that weekend, but he's going to try to make it back for the last day of camp.

    Chris can you give Victor Davila a call. He is the Puerta Rican that everyone keeps trying to guess who he is. Last I heard it's between Wake, ISU, and a nother school. Just a thought. Otherwise good updates.

    Chris, what's your gut tell you about Gibbs from your conversation?

    I didn't know we were going after Victor Davila, he would be a great pickup...He does not have ISU listed on scout or rivals...

    Re: Column: Grant Gibbs is Blowing Up

    I think Grant really likes ISU...specifically Coach Mac. I like our chances right now. Honestly, I think it will come down to the three Iowa schools but if I had a gun to my head and had to make a pick right now, I'd say ISU strictly because of his longtime friendship with Mac. I think Iowa has the most catching up to do with their new coaches. He's really high on UNI as well.

    Re: Column: Grant Gibbs is Blowing Up

    In one other note that I think is important...I've talked to hundreds of recruits over the past few years and Grant is one of the nicest ones I've ever talked to. He's respectful, confident and easy to talk to. He'd be a great fit, chemistry wise with some of the guys already on the team and ones who are coming.

    I think he's going to come to us, his mom is an Iowa State fan.

    Howie, you always seem to have something to say in Gibbs conversations. Are you friends with him? If you know him well and you feel like ISU is the leader, that really makes me feel good about our chances.

    Not in CO anymore but I'm not changing my name :)

    Yeah I know him, I think ISU does have a slight advantage here, it sounds like he's really interested.
