    BASKETBALL RECRUITING: Top 20 player interested in ISU

    I am hearing that there is mutual interest between Iowa State and B.J. Young, Rivals.com's 18th ranked player in the 2011 recruiting class. Rivals.com has him at 5-stars. He's a 6-foot-4, 170-pound point guard out of St. Louis.

    Yes please! Would certainly ease the sting if ISU doesn't get Paige.

    It says he has interest in Illinois State, but not us.

    Please, for the LOVE OF GOD, tell me rivals didn't list the wrong ISU.

    I think this is the kid that goes to the same school Anthony Booker attended.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    This would make not getting Paige tolerable... of course we could end up without either...

    I don't get his offer list on Rivals. I know those aren't always up to date, but the biggest offer he has listed is Baylor. You'd think the big names would be knocking down the doors to get this kid, unless there are some unknown issues.

    I'm pretty sure I read he might have trouble qualifying but I could be wrong.

    from the news on his rivals page:
    Those familiar with basketball in the city of St. Louis always knew what B.J. Young was capable of. Young made an impact last summer for St. Louis Gameface on the AAU circuit, but still the lack of a high school resume had coaching shying away. Now after yet another huge start to the AAU circuit the calls are coming in, and Young's stock is continuing to soar.
    Assume this is getting at the lack of high D1 offers. I had the same question when he is ranked 4th PG in his class.

    I know I'm getting the cart way ahead of the horse here, but given what we have for 2011 does a 5 star top 20 point guard make us an elite 8 team?

    There are obviously a lot of questions out there about how everything is going to come together, but IMO a solid PG is all that is missing from the puzzle for 2011.


    "Blamo"! The new CF approved swear word.
