    This is obviously great news, as it indicates just how good of a player he is. I will let others talk about the implications. I will offer my take-away, though: if he is selected for the team, Bill Self might know more about Horton-Tucker at the beginning of the season than CSP.

    Does this mean he will get a new car if selected as well?

    Don't like that Self is the coach, but other than that it is great for THT

    Self is a great coach and THT will learn a lot making him more Big XII ready this season. It's all good....

    Not worried in the slightest. If anything knowing he is ISU commit increases his chances on making the team.

    Do not think that the coach selects the team, USA Basketball typically has a separate group that does the evaluation and selection.

    This is nothing but positive. Self is an elite coach, and would have had enough of a scouting report on THT already.

    That may be true but I guarantee they at least consult with the coach before final decisions.

    I have heard Coach Fennelly talk about his experience with this. He said the Head Coach will typically tell them the style he / she wants to play so they can somewhat match the personnel to that and then at the end they will sometimes allow the coach to have the final say on one player that they want to be a part of the team - a lot of time this is a "glue" player.

    I don't want our recruits, players, or former coach's children anywhere near Bill "Slimy" Self. :eek:

    Looks like THT is impressing in Colorado Springs

    Hmm... I'll assume Jeff ment a coma instead of a period when identifiying THT as a prospect impressing. Either way Talen putting in work.

    @jeffborzello Some of the more impressive guys from the first two USAB U18 workouts: Kamaka Hepa (Texas), D.J. Carton (2019), Quentin Grimes (Kansas). Talen Horton-Tucker (Iowa State) looks slimmer.
