Hearing San Diego State.
Damn I really liked him
Another nut punch for Steve. That sucks
Well that's unfortunate but understandable with a west coast kid. Thanks for sharing CW.
When are open tryouts?
While I will say I wasn't super excited about him I'm not sure we can afford to whiff on too many more guys with the number of open spots we have.
Hopefully you heard wrong!
who is this guy?
McDermott 2.0 sure seems a lot like the original
Welp if this is true we are going to be pushing all our chips in on Turner and Aiken for the season.
ISU MBB fan desperate for good news!
Oh well, there are still good players out there and time.
CW, two questions for you:
(1) Maybe I misread his quotes, but it sure sounded like we are 4th for Aiken, and it now looks like we are 2nd-3rd for Turner. What are you hearing for Aiken and Turner?
(2) We appear to desperately need a PG and an additional scorer/shooter. If we miss on Aiken, Turner and Gomez, what do you see as the most important PG and scoring/shooting targets?
I’ll be shocked if Aiken doesn’t go SH...
If we can land Turner we would be halfway to bring back imo..
I’m wondering if we have inside track to DJ Car?
but does DJ apply for waiver? Does he want to play this season?
not sure what CW will say but I would assume the staff is trying to figure out plan C right now
Not surprised, unfortunately. Steve isn't great at short term recruiting. He's much better at the long recruiting like THT, WIgginton, Foster, etc.
He does great in the fall, and in recruiting HS players. Like you said, not so great at the spring short term. He's always on these guys' radar it seems, but can't close the deal for whatever reason. This particular case with Gomez, being a West Coaster I kind of get it. Still, if there was ever a spring for Steve to step it up and reel in some big ones, it is now. His job depends on it, and so far he's failing. Gomez was not going to be the difference in us winning 13 games or 20 games next year, but he could have been a piece.
This upcoming season will probably be the most pointless season in Iowa State basketball history.
And among the worst.
Somberly this is possible.
But if we land Turner and Buggs I’ll have hope. Also, will this recruiting cycle go on until kids are back on campus? Could be some late surprises!
