    Did these guys know each other or just compete?

    Sorry for the edits, I'm not always good with tech

    That is good to see. I don't have an answer for how well they know each other, but they have competed against each other at least once a season for the last four years, and it wouldn't surprise me at all if they've gotten to know each other off the court a bit as well.

    It's interesting; Iowa and ISU fans are seemingly always at each others throats, screaming and ranting and raving back and forth, but it seems like the student-athletes from all the in-state teams (including UNI, look at Georges and Naz going to the game against North Carolina in Cedar Falls a couple of seasons ago) get along pretty well with each other, at least off the court.

    They know each other. They dont hate as much as the fans do. Guarantee our players have talked to them about TCU.

    I think a lot of these guys are friends off the court. I'm pretty sure Monte was close with Devin Marble and Anthony Clemmons since they're from Michigan.

    Marble's dad was a mentor of sorts for Monte and helped steer him to Hoiberg and ISU. I'm almost certain he and Devyn were at least fairly close friends.

    Hello, it's because Jok wanted to come to ISU and play with these guys, that is a known fact. ISU was far away ahead of everyone else in his recruitment, but when it came out someone on Fred's staff texted Jok or something during the quiet period of recruiting, Fred had to back off of Jok, he had no choice or the NCAA would have investigated.

    They're friends. Our guys have gone to IC to party and hang with Jok before.

    Both teams frequently hung out together. I saw Niang and Long few times at Iowa football games in Iowa City. Both Long and Niang are great kids based on my previous interactions with them. Need more guys like that in college basketball.

    All love because he probably wishes he was graduating with those guys. Weren't we his #1 until we had an assistant get busted texting him during a dead period?

    I think Jok committed to Iowa pretty early in the process

    He committed to Iowa shortly after Fred told him he couldn't come to ISU anymore. That is the fact. I can't believe some people don't remember how this all went down? Jok would take tons of unofficial visits up to ISU. In fact, I remember a lot of ISU fans saying they weren't sure they wanted him because of his bad (injured feet) and very poor defense.

    He turned out to be pretty darn good though.... offensively anyway.

    Jok's recruiting rankings were nearly on par with Barnes prior to his injury. Seems like it was during his Sophomore year at Roosevelt.

    Compare that tweet to the one below. Classy gesture by Jok.
