    There is nothing normal about this spring recruiting season. And there's nothing in our favor- other than carton being from iowa, we have zero geographic ties to anyone. And our assistants just don't have the right connections for the right kids.

    All of our FL and southern connections don't do us much good for kids from detroit and NJ.

    It's almost like being in the bottom of the Big 12 2 out of the last 3 years is causing us to be viewed as a bottom of the Big 12 program. Weird how that works...

    Brannen is very much a mid-major coach trying to convince a fanbase that he can continue to win at the rate of Huggs and Cronin. Nothing about his first year was exceptional and the fanbase believes he underachieved with the talent.

    Pretty sure an "all-star" crew of CF recruiters could do as well as the staff this time out.

    If DeJulius only cared about being on a winning team he would stay at Michigan.

    Plenty of kids from the South transferring as well. We aren’t on those lists either.

    Well we aren't winning, have open playing time, let whomever jack up shots and dont play defense. So what exactly is he looking for?

    I'm still unsure why everyone thinks DD will make such a large impact. For a PG, he shoots at a very low %. We need guys who can make baskets, not throw up bricks!

    I'm honestly curious why folks were so upbeat about him. I dont watch Big Ten bball much so I've not seen him play. Wondering if maybe I'm missing something his stats arent showing.

    Cincinnati is starting to feel really good about their chance according to their "experts". We aren't done. Still pushing, and not sure what changed since yesterday. I went from 90% confident to 50%. Cincinnati doesn't make a lot of since to me from what I heard yesterday.

    He lit us up in Atlantis and would be an upgrade at our PG position

    It would also fit in somewhat with the 'staying closer to home' thing we've seen. Its the closest of his transfer finalists.

    Technically any point guard would be an upgrade to our PG position.

    I can't blame him. I would go somewhere that I'm confident my coach would be there for my tenure. Maybe that's just me.

    Cincy is an under 4 hour drive to Detroit, while Ames is just under 9 hours. Not saying that's the sole reason, but it's not shocking that during these times, proximity is taken heavily into consideration.

    Not being able to get kids on campus makes Iowa State a pretty dang tough sell. This is worst case scenario for CSP.

    A lot of schools can claim all those things you described. I don't know what he's looking for, he's a 20 year old kid. Every players looks for different things. Maybe he has relatives in Cincinnatti, maybe he knows someone that played there once, maybe he knows the coach through a mutual aquaintance, maybe he had a good phone conversation with the coach recently. There are 100 different reasons why he might choose Cincinnati over Iowa State.
