    Time to get on this guy? We need a hard to pronounce guy on our roster again. lol
    Guessing Prohm knows if he's worthy or not since he was at his game (against Lake). Don't want to see another Indian Hills kid playing at Baylor if he fills a need for us too.

    1. Is he left handed? We only recruit left-handers now.
    2. Did he qualify for D1 college out of high school? He could join next year if he did, right?

    So I see it doesn't list Thornton. (think that's his name) Just wondering because some earlier posters suggested he was worth pursuing.

    That's it! The PBP guy said he's from the same place as the TCU foreign big man

    I have a good feeling the staff gets Juiston.

    ISU hasn't offered Raynere Thornton that's why he's not on that list.

    ugh looking at that list, I hate seeing Teddy Allen on there especially WV. Not sure how he would have fit on our roster but seems like the type of player at that school that will be really good in time. Agreed on the transfer market/hs kids getting out of their LOI's we're in prime position this offseason, playing time available and a school with national recognition. No sense in having to reach for players like we have the last two years (obviously not all have been reaches of course).

    Do not know you, nor am I disagreeing.....just wish I had a good feeling about your good feeling. (Dangerous to get too high of hopes in recruiting, that's all.)

    Playing time plus he is a priority for Prohm. That is huge for a JUCO. They don't often choose a school where there might not be a ton of playing time open.

    Look at potential targets of Forbes teams in the spring (includes ISU)

    "3. IOWA STATE NEEDS A BIG
    Look for Iowa State to add another big man from the 2017 class, whether it is through the junior college ranks or the transfer wire, or to pursue a handful of capable low post bigs in the 2018 crop. Against Purdue on Saturday, the Cyclones received just five points from their frontcourt; that is just not going to do it. They do bring in Cam Lard and Tennessee transfer Ray Kasongo and they've been involved with junior college forward Shakur Juiston and prep school forward Alex Yetna this winter.

    When I look at our roster, I see the need for a couple of smaller "bigs", really active, Swiss Army type 6'6" to 6'7" guys who can play anywhere the 3 or 4, and sometimes the 5 if we go small. Like Juiston

    If we don't get him, it won't be due to lack of work put in by the staff.

    I feel optimistic because A) The staff has certainly invested a lot of time in his recruitment and B) ISU has a lot to sell him as a program with recent success and the roster setup is in a position for him to make an immediate impact

    I don't. I bet he ends up at Seton Hall, or Rutgers, or one of the other East Coast schools he's considering.

    There's quite a "dark" history for him out there. Wouldn't be surprised at all to see him in Ames. Even more so when you consider that relationships are most important to him.

    If our board is the first to give him the nicknames "Shakes" or "Shakey", how can he turn down our offer?

    Lol, I haven't watched any Indian Hills games this year but I may try to watch some and maybe a Hutchinson game. Looking at the brackets it seems the yocals in Hutch gave themselves a very nice seeding. Every other potential game in the quarters has a team ranked #11 or higher and the best they could face is #13 and a team that hasn't been there in a while if ever. The #17 team in the country was given a 5 seed which is who Hutch would play with the 4 seed but the higher ranked team has to play an extra game. Those people hate Hills so much but it seems the business's had some voice as they play tomorrow but have a decent appearing path.

    UNLV sucks at an epic level, so playing time I guess? We've got that. And prospects for success.

    Looks like Hutch plays Wednesday at noon and Hills plays Tuesday at noon. Think you can watch these games free. Actually have a game going right now. Panola vs Shelton State
