    Is it really that big a deal to pay their own way for a semester or even a year? Don't the schools usually hook them up with grant money and/or student loans (which they'll probably never pay back anyway)?

    Wouldn't be shocked if a scholarship opens up by the time he decides

    I thought that Dillon Brooks wound up at the University of Oregon. So, are you saying that is not correct?

    So you are hearing he will decide this summer, the next time a scholarship can open up?

    He did, why do you ask?
    He is a heck of a player for them as a freshman, and was a recruit we had a great chance with until he reclassified to 2014 and we didn't have a spot open.

    That is what I thought, but you said “I think we have stud freshman Dillon Brooks right now if we had a spot for him.” That present tense statement made me wonder if something had happened of which I was unaware. Thanks for the clarification.

    I just remembered what past Cyclone Deonte Burton reminds me of.

    Does everyone remember Doug Collins from about 1991 or so I believe? Stocky kid that could jump out of the gym and was also a lefty just like Burton.

    Obviously Burton looks a lot better, but that's the kind of player he reminds me of.

    I think he's saying, "If we had a scholarship when he reclassified, we probably would have landed Brooks"

    Ok I know this is a dumb question but can someone explain why Burton doesn't have another year at ISU?

    College basketball players get 5 years to play 4 and here's Burtons breakdown by semester

    Spring 17- played at ISU
    Fall 16 - played at ISU
    Spring 16 - played at ISU
    Fall 15 - sat out at ISU
    Spring 15 - sat out at ISU
    Fall 14 - played at Marquette
    Spring 14 - played at Marquette
    Fall 13 - played at Marquette

    Didn't he play a few games his final semester at Marquette that effectively took up a whole year?

    I thought it was like a few exhibitions or something.

    Even though they breakdown transfer eligibility by semester, I don't believe the NCAA breaksdown "playing" by semester. So you play any time during a season, that's your year of eligibility.

    Gotcha. That makes sense. I was breaking it down into semesters. NCAA views one game at Marquette the same as playing 30 then right?

    Unfortunately yes. I'm sure we needed him last year, but it would be nice to have him another season.

    After watching how Deonte was finally exploding and having fun in the second half of this season I kept thinking-- man just think where he would be if CSP had him one more year.

    It's sad he really only got 2.5 seasons. These guys need to start out at ISU!

    The best part is I really believe that ISU was as good for Burton (non-basketball) as Burton was for us (basketball). Win Win

    Going to miss this guy.

    I'm gonna go out on a limb and say Deonte gets drafted late in the late second round a-la Abdel Nader.

    Agree. I'm surprised he isn't higher on the draft radar. The guys game is perfect for the NBA.
