    From the rivals article... "Walker chose the Cyclones over Florida State, Georgia, Ole Miss and Vanderbilt" all programs who put players into the league and recruit 5 stars. And it isn't like WF, MSU or GT don't have a solid history of PG's. Just because Jaden is currently listed as a 3 star doesn't mean he'll end up there when he enrolls.

    Always trust Prohm with PG's. Plus fanatics will now get to use sky walker references in game threads... Win win

    Not seeing a reported offer from Florida State. That'd be the offer that would make me feel a lot better.

    As stated I hope he works out.

    Glass half-full = Prohm likes this guy, "the next Haliburton."

    Glass half-empty = We are not in a good spot with the big fish. We needed to take what we can get.

    I think the preponderance of the evidence right now is definitely the former.

    I think at this point you have to give the benefit of the doubt to the staff on evaluations until the spring when 247 has at least updated some of their numbers. We haven’t lacked talent as much as cohesiveness during the last two years.

    Welcome Jaden!

    I hope you enjoy your time at ISU! Looking forward to watching you compete and represent Iowa State!

    (See it isn’t that hard to welcome a new recruit. Maybe try it for yourself instead of hyper-criticizing everything, folks)

    I understand your sentiment, and if it were a post player I'd have more doubt, but the list of highly rated Steve Prohm point guards is: Lindell Wigginton. Arguably his least successful one, too. There are a lot of variables in recruiting, just look at Tech's last two draft picks, or Ja Morant. Not saying he'll even be drafted, but Prohm has done it time and time again.

    Naw, he thinks it's more effective to talk sh!t on a message board and follow recruiting rankings than do actual research.

    Good news is for some reason when players commit to Iowa State they go up in the rankings instead of the old days when whomever commited to us went down in the rankings.

    So you'd rather have THT or Wigginton then Haliburton?

    Interesting note I came across with Jaden, he chose ISU over his former AAU coach, Jerry Stackhouse.

    "Walker took a visit to Vanderbilt over the weekend, That's notable because Walker is the first player from Southeast United to visit the SEC school coached by Jerry Stackhouse. United was originally Stackhouse Elite and coached by the former NBA star."
    https://hoopseen.com/news/player/201908/two-official-visits-planned-sec-visit-over-weekend-jaden-walker

    Doesn't look like Jaden had a FSU offer yet but that may have come, he just recently gain interest from Florida State and Maryland (another quality program). Definitely a late riser who must still be growing, I've seen him listed from 6'4", 5" and even 6". The staff likens him to Tyrese, another former late blooming 3 star.

    Some Quotes from his Coach.
    "They said he reminds them of Haliburton a lot," Howard said. "He can be a true point guard, that’s the thing about it. (There aren’t many tall guards who) can make the decisions and handle the ball as fluidly as he does, going left and right.

    "(The Cyclones) like how he can definitely score at all three levels. They like how he can make decisions and make the right play. I know they like to play two points guards at the same time sometimes, with (one playing) combo because they like to get it out and run. So I know they were really liking the way he can get down, get in the paint, make the right play, and he can knock down a jump shot."

    Proving my point for me with another logical fallacy. Please point out where I specifically stated that you "know nothing about basketball recruiting and don't follow it at all"

    You're perfect for a fanatical board and you've got a little fanatical following yourself to show for it. Kind of sad how people clasp onto the king fanatic.

    Prohm hasn't done a whole hell of a lot to be in good graces. He's recruited an incoherent mish mash of highly and lowly rated guys and sans Fred's leftovers hasn't been able to consistently get his guys to play a reliable style. His in-game coaching leaves so much to be desired. His point guards make it to the league because he gives them unmitigated reign over the entire team and doesn't hold them accountable during games. I'll relent some and say that he finds decent talent, but my trust in him doesn't go much further than being a good representative of the university.

    So no, in spite of his history of putting guards into the league, I don't have much trust for his judgment.

    Yeah a few actually. Marquez Gilstrap, Kantrail Horton and another one I can't think of right now.

    Trying to trash other posters on their biases while you are clearly biased yourself.

    Who could have possibly seen this coming.
