    Uthoff is 77th by Scout. I wonder if we have a shot at Young. Arkansas is the early favorite with family there and him liking the hogs growing up. Tharpe has a couple of officials scheduled but no ISU yet.

    Oh yeah I wouldn't be suprised if he chose Arkansas if he grew up liking them. Tharpe would be nice to get to so hopefully he sets up a visit sometime. And Kareem Canty who is at 141 from New York... any shot?

    No, he has narrowed his list. Others refuse to accept ISU is out of the race for him.

    The most surprising thing to me is ESPN has Cook at #71 with a 96 score. I guess at least they just don't copy each other's work.

    Maybe Scout heard what Ejim did in the Cap City league and downgraded Cook's score based on potential playing time his freshman year?

    where do you get that he has narrowed his list down? Every thing I've seen is he's just getting started, he basically blew up this summer. I don't know if Iowa State has a chance, but I do know Hoiberg was on him in Orlando and that Young mentioned Iowa State as one of the recent schools offering him.

    ESPN's ratings are usually considered worthless by many who follow recruiting. They had Avery Bradley as the #1 a few years ago not John Wall. Wall was a slam dunk top pick by everyone else, including the NBA!

    I don't know how much AAU Cook played this summer, it sure was tough to see much of any mention of him. Maybe Chris can do an update with him. I don't think Jerry Meyer of Rivals saw Cook. IMO Rivals doesn't cover as many events as Scout although Rivals improved their coverage this summer adding Eric Bossi.

    Re: Updated Rivals 150

    Regarding Cook, in the last rankings I remember reading something about the Rivals people saying that they had a lot of discussion about Cook as to leave him in the 150 or take him out. The conclusion was that they wanted to see more from him.

    Almost no one else wanted ISU to sign Oglesby

    on here. From the different rating services combined, they are both top 100 players. It would suck if both left the state.

    I still don't want us to sign Oglesby, and I thought you always railed on the "shiny stars" crowd.
