RECRUITING: Busy hoops weekend ahead

The annual Cy-Hawk football game will be the main event but Steve Prohm’s staff is due for a busy weekend ahead. 

According to a source, three official visitors will be in Ames. 

The prospects

ERIC CURRY: A 6-foot-7 power forward out of Arkansas who according to Rivals, holds offers from: Alabama, Arkansas, Minnesota, Oklahoma State, SMU and a handful of mid-majors. 

Curry had originally scheduled a visit to SMU, which got cancelled last weekend. He went to Minnesota instead. 

My guess here is that the Gophers, Alabama, Arkansas and SMU will be Iowa State’s top competition. 

ROMELLO WHITE: Another power forward, this 6-foot-8 Georgia native reportedly has offers from: Alabama, Auburn, Kansas, Kansas State, Marquette, Mississippi, SMU, Tennessee, Texas A&M, Virginia Tech and mid-majors. My guess is that Ole Miss, Kansas State and Auburn are Iowa State’s top competition. 

This offer list seems a bit hyperbolic to me, but what do I know?

DARRION STRONG: Another JUCO guard, who could come in and make an immediate impact in 2016-17 along with Donovan Jackson, who committed last week. Strong averaged 21.3 points per game last year at Coffeyville C.C. in Kansas. He visited Oklahoma last weekend.
