    Anyone with stature in sales, recruiting, or negotiating would have subtleties and nuances to be successful. I presume CSP has these skills.

    To be fair, he wouldn't even have to mention it. I can't imagine anyone in our country isn't aware of what's happening there right now, especially when your average player/recruit is a 17-22 year old AA. With that said, I don't think that's really going to impact a recruits choice, especially a kid like Gach who is familiar with the area. Things are ugly now but it will calm down eventually.

    Harder for Gophers to hate on Ames anyways.
    Location is something they have to tackle, explaining the positives of Ames (Focustown?). Why would major current events not be a part of that? It can be done tactfully , as there are genuine advantages to being in an small, idyllic college town. Ames is more than just great water.

    Yup. I grew up in Ames and attended ISU as an undergrad. It's a great college town, but the Twin Cities is also a great area providing everything a big city can provide without being unmanageably large. Plus he's only about an hour from there and is probably familiar with the city, more so than with Ames.

    Hopefully, since he wants to play PG, Prohm's history with getting PG's into the NBA will win out.

    His twin brother, Duoth, was actually the better player on his high school team in Austin. He had academic issues so he went to NDSCS where he was a Juco all American and school 3P record setter. He actually broke the previous record set by his older brother Gach Gach. Supposedly Duoth still has some classroom work to take care of to become elgible to transfer to D1, but it is obvious that there is some basketball talent in the Gach family.

    His brother shot 50% from three while breaking that record too. Sounds like he’s taking classes still, and will have to do more while sitting out this year before he’s eligible to go to a 4 year school or play. 6’5” SG

    So is the inclination we get Gach and Duoth could follow next year as JCLs replacement?

    Maybe Prohm should mention the possibility of his brother going to DMACC to be close by, and have an offer for the next season.

    Agree. Since Utah wouldn't let him play the position, hopefully he'll feel his best chance to do so is in Ames. First step is making the top five on Monday.

    I mean, Top 5 is a lock. I’m just hoping we are the final 1.

    I know this is not where this goes but Leech is on the move again. This time heading to Ottumwa. He will kill it for the Warriors.

    Seems like Prohm just wasted some time and effort recruiting him.

    I don't think so. If we have more than 5 guys that are Big XII quality starters we'll be in pretty good shape.

    There is no doubt Gach is a stud! He'll play in the Association when it's all said and done...

    Plus it gives the perpetually unhappy people a great arguing point on who should play. With TL gone, I wonder who will be the popular choice this year. Should be interesting, we've got Tre, who looks like he'll come off the bench ,Johnson is probably in the same boat in that case as well if we land another guard/wing, the frosh (esp. XF) or maybe even that George should be starting. If he does start, then Solo can fill that role. Lots of options for those folks.

    I feel like Jackson will be the frontrunner, especially the first time he comes off the bench and hits 2 or 3 treys.

    Gach would be a huge addition. The more solid scoring options the better.
