    So is Fred going after Iowa kids?

    I know they were after Uthoff. How are they standing with Woodbury, Gessel, Staten, Kasperbauer, Jok, Oglesby etc?

    The ones worth getting which may be Jok and no one else IMO.

    Josh Oglesby is down to Iowa, Illinois, Arizona State, and Minnesota. He has scheduled visits to those 4 and my guess is he goes to Iowa.

    Re: So is Fred going after Iowa kids?

    Woodbury, Staten and Jok are all on the radar I believe. Marcus Paige as well.

    Re: So is Fred going after Iowa kids?

    I thought that Uthoff was gone. Am I wrong? Would love to see some instate guys going to ISU but at the same time, don't waste a scholarship on an instate kid if someone better is out there!

    Re: So is Fred going after Iowa kids?

    All that I care about is that he gets GOOD players, regardless of where they come from.

    I'm pretty sure there are no elite PG's in Iowa in the 2011 class....

    Re: So is Fred going after Iowa kids?

    Nope... we haven't looked at any of them at all. Hoiberg refuses to evaluate in state talent stating that it is too easy to recruit them. He wants more of a challenge.

    Correct. Hoiberg understands that Iowa kids can't play at the major college level. Our kids top at Division III.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Re: So is Fred going after Iowa kids?

    I'm certain Fred knows which Iowans will fit best into our program. If next year there are none, so be it. Eventually there will be more and more. Barnes might have been a Cyclone if Fred was already established. There will be others.

    Re: So is Fred going after Iowa kids?

    Fred hates all Iowa kids.

    He prefers kids that are up to speed on clothing/musical trends.

    Exactly. Kids like Marcus Paige are just fodder to Godfather Hoiberg. Why would he even think of going after in-state talent? It is more fun to watch Kansas grab the best players, just to see them drop in the cathedral that once was, and is again, Hilton.

    I am a firm believer that talent is limited to geographical location. Iowa is not that location.
