    Who would you rather have replace Royce and why?

    I'd take Pelle because hopefully we would get more then one year out of him.

    Either one, or his old team mate from Minnesota.

    Pelle. Oriakhi really isn't that impressive.

    Let's scrap our entire team and start from scratch... Then we can pick and choose the players we want :jimlad:

    Oriahki almost averaged a double double his sophomore year. I just want a guy that can play next year.

    Pelle if we KNOW he is going to qualify. As it stands right now, I would take which ever is the first to say "I am ALL IN!"

    Oriakhi is probably better than this year's stats indicate. He is proven. He is eligible whereas Pelle is still in doubt.

    However Pelle has probably a bigger ceiling and potentially could help us more than just next year.

    Clearly I would be stoked for either one though and I'm sure Fred would take either.

    Pelle's not really even interested in ISU so what's the point of the question?

    Here nor there
    Guessing the OP has never thought about recruiting before- no good comes from threads like this.

    Nothing. He has no clue. He's going off nothing more than anyone else here, but passes his opinions off as fact.

    I'd take Oriakhi. The guy has been through 3 college seasons. He knows what it takes to be competitive at this level and I think we'd probably only get Pelle for a season or 2.

    I'd take either one. Doesn't matter to me. Both are and were 5-star recruits in high school.
