    Holy Cow. Makes cheering for Texas Tech reaching the Natl. Championship game last season even cooler.

    No, I think he will be the starting PG.

    This projects him to only play roughly 12.4 minutes per game.

    That is marginally in the rotation, at best.

    Looks like they have this guy...

    #37 nationally


    ...taking his spot.

    A possible transfer that we would have a definite "in" with.

    I think Ellis and Harris will play together in the starting lineup though. I think it will look like this.

    Harris
    Ellis
    Tucker
    Achiuwa
    Wiseman

    This is because they run a a really fast paced system and this lineup would really get up and down the court and Achiuwa is a great fit for a small ball 4 because he is 6'8 but a great athlete who can cover multiple positions.

    I can give you a couple reasons.

    -- We were finalists on two of their likely starters. Being curious about what happens to guys who do not ultimately choose the Cyclones is pretty typical. It is interesting for its own sake when you have already learned something about the player and you are curious how they will develop, it helps you benchmark the staff's ability to identify talent (even if they do not eventually land it), and it is fun. There are definitely those two take it too far with those that spurn us, but I find it interesting to see how guys' careers go once I know about them.

    -- Penny and Memphis is an interesting story for college basketball even disregarding those particular Iowa State connections (including the conspiracy theory that THT was going to flip to Memphis last summer). You have a local, hometown hero who rocked the AAU circut and, before that, was one of the coolest NBA players of the past 20 years ripping it up on the recruiting trail nationally. The guy just pulled a class -- legally or not -- rivaling or exceeding the blue bloods of the sport. Wondering how Penny will do as a coach with all that talent and how Memphis' season will go on its own is a reasonable curiosity for anybody interested in the sport.

    -- The stat nerd in me likes looking over these projections of lineups and results, particularly for such a hard thing to forecast like a new coach without much of a track record and essentially a new team with so much coming in from the transfer market or 5* freshmen.

    Memphis is one of the most interesting teams in the country next year on a couple of levels.

    Rayjon Tucker will be the starting PG. (assuming he doesn't go pro)

    From what I've read I think he'll stay in the draft.

    That would be odd since he isn't a PG. He is more of a wing.

    Maybe. NBA Draft projects have him as a shooting guard. But other links say guard, not wing. 247 labels him a PG.

    Guys change position in college all the time.

    I thought Nick would be a jack-of-all-trades wing -- turns out he was a PG.

    We thought Naz was a PG coming into ISU -- turns out he was a shooter.

    Tucker is a career 113:151 A:T, though (roughly 1:1.35).

    That is hard to imagine as a PG.

    Short answer: There’s no ISU related news to talk about.

    Actually he's a kid that strung us along and went to Memphi$. He burnt that bridge.

    Interesting choice here. I think it will be a choice that gets more and more popular while the one-and-done era still exists and coaches are getting caught paying recruits.



    Also an indirect win for ISU, as this #5 recruit was down to Tech and Kansas along with Memphis.

    KU fans thought he was going to KU. This has to be a blow.
