    Poor guy. That reminded me how sexy his offer list was, though.

    My mom had that done a few years back and she was golfing about 6 weeks later. The procedure isn't very invasive, so the recovery should be pretty quick.

    This guy has potential. Was surprised he didn't redshirt last year with all the senior guards ahead of him.

    Very few P5 players use a redshirt anymore. Most kids that think they are good enough to contribute will reserve the RS for a possible transfer if things don't work out as planned.

    How's your mom's crossover?
    Does she have any eligibility left?

    Yeah, bone spurs shouldn't be a big deal for a player to recover from (except for when they happen during the season). Hope he recovers quickly and gets back to work for next year!

    With shoulder surgery this year, I wonder if it wouldn't be smart to redshirt him.

    I realize shoulders heal fairly quickly, but if it's his shooting side, I could see it affecting him into next year.

    He could basically waste two years, having played very little.

    She's a gym rat with a high motor and plays above the rim. Unfortunately, she's under 6-10 so I doubt many fanatics could get excited.

    Speculating he will be fine (reading into the "minimal" for rotator cuff damage). Maybe this last season was the one to do the redshirt and have the surgery but no one wants surgery and first step is usually trying to rehab/strengthen without the surgery which I guess they probably did till they found the spurs.

    This sounds way less "threatening" than the Tommy John surgery that WBB Emily Durr had this spring. Athletes have bone spurs removed routinely without missing tons of time.

    This news inspired me to look over context in what he was "stuck behind" in Morris, Mitrou-Long, Thomas, and Jackson. I honestly do not know if we have ever had a better front court in Iowa State history. I cannot think of a better once since my initial time at ISU (in 2005)...

    upload_2017-5-15_13-4-12.png

    Two elite shooters -- maybe the two best in school history, though you could make a case for Sullivan (on the #s) and Christopherson (who has the school %age record).

    The conference statistics do not count Jackson for some reason, but team records...

    upload_2017-5-15_13-8-52.png

    Four guards shooting 40%+ from three in the Big 12. Wow.

    upload_2017-5-15_13-4-41.png

    At least three elite scorers, especially if you count Deonte as a wing and not a post.

    upload_2017-5-15_13-5-12.png

    Two of the most efficient scorers in the conference, too, guys who (1.) took a lot of threes, (2.) made a lot of threes, (3.) scored a ton of points, and (4.) were thus very efficient.

    He had some elite company to beat out -- with a painful condition, to boot.

    I hope he gets right and is 100% ready to go next year. We need all the help we can get.

    Is this the same injury that bothered him in HS?

    "Long, a former three to four-star prospect (depending on the service), chose Iowa State over the likes of Oklahoma State, Kansas State, South Carolina, Texas Tech and others."

    We call this a four-star prospect!

    I still believe he will be battling for the 3rd guard spot in the starting line up or will be the 1st guard off the bench.

    Many could go in a lot of directions here, but I'll just stick with hoping the effort is there.

    I noticed Jakobly was wearing an arm sling in a few Instagram photos/stories about a month ago and figured this was the case. Good to hear the damage was only minor.

    Those are some great head coaches who wanted Long last year. After hearing he was fighting through a shoulder issue last year (which is pretty significant in basketball), I'm probably more optimistic about Jakolby than I ever have been. Could be a great surprise.

    Frank Martin only recruits guys who are tough and can guard, and have talked to someone who watched him in HS who said he can really score. Excited to see how the minutes get divided.

    He went toe to toe with Monk in HS the dude can score with the best of them.

    If Jakolby ever breaks out as a player for us, I swear that anecdote is going to be his equivalent to the "scored against Nerlens Noel" and "old man, YMCA game" for Georges.
