    Godspeed to the young man. Hope he gets his grades up and he gets an offer from the ISU coach a year or so from now.

    Are you saying 17 from the line is a negative?
    From the highlights I saw on the news the kid is quick and very difficult to stay ahead of.

    The fact he's heading to DMACC is enticing. Let's see where this goes before we fill this thread up with what he isn't.

    There’s a video of him saying he wanted to play at Iowa State even if he had to go play JUCO and get recruited that way. One of the local news station had a story about it

    Who was the last player from DMACC that played at Iowa State on scholarship? This player can be very good in high school, I'm not doubting that. He doesn't even have a recruiting page on 247, ESPN, or rivals.

    Everyone gets in a big huff about how we don't have talent on the team now. Adding a player like this wouldn't be helpful at all.

    Unless you could pick him up as a preferred walk on. I feel like there are teams out there where every once in a while those walk ons turn into big 12 players. No offense to our walk ons, but I don't think they even provide a lot of good scrimmage time in practice.

    One of the areas I think that could be improved on this team. Outside of the one true benefit these guys give in their collective GPA boost to the team.

    Agreed, it would be nice to find some walk-ons with any kind of height too. It seems like it would be more beneficial in practices to go against guys that are closer to Stu and can bang a little down low.

    I mean if he wanted to walk on I am sure he could.

    And our current walkons are no different than every other team (except other teams might have some taller guys but the skill level is the same).

    Jackson will be a good one if he just can develop his handle. Everything else just needs to be refined.

    You're the poster child for ******* morons. I only ask why you had an issue with 17 points from the line? I consider getting to the line an attribute.

    Further you really think DMACC doesn't produce D1 basketball players? I thought it was enticing because he's got a couple years to refine his skills, he obviously has talent.

    My son played him earlier this year. Good player but didn't look anywhere near D1. He's had a great tournament though.

    He is not D1 material. Bowen Born is 5 times better and didn't get an offer from us. Heck Born didn't get any D1 major offers. Sorry, but this kid turns the ball over to much. I don't even see him at a good D2 school. He is a tweener, D3-low level D2. He needs DMACC to develop and hope to get a D2 offer.
