    You know Halsted is more confident about Foster going to ISU than any person that has a CB in and look how he handles it

    I thought I read they left Prairie before their senior years. Wow, that's bad.

    Absolutely. It's just so funny that there are still crystal balls out there for him when his dad literally said Xavier hasn't made his decision yet and doesn't know where he will choose. Lol

    Foster was never going to Iowa. Like they've never been a real contender at all I've been told

    To be fair, that is the whole point of the crystal balls. To give the fans an educated guess as what the experts think will happen. It's just that some lack the educated part.

    Oh absolutely. Using it in an educated way is one thing but it seems there are quite a few of them that use it pretty blindly.

    There are almost always crystal balls out for undecided players.

    My opinion: They all have Iowa because they know that the trend is for Iowa to get in-state guys. I don't blame them for that but I also don't think they know squat.

    I mean, it is a post grad athletics training academy focusing mostly on basketball and Volleyball. That type of place should be a positive for any person who is trying to get better at their craft, however it is no IMG haha

    I'm banking on your information CyTwins. Not sure where it comes from, but I like it.

    saw someone post about how Fosters uncle posts on an Illini board and he has been hinting that Foster is looking less and less likely. God, how I love message board speculation and the impending freak outs that are sure to follow (one way or the other) lol

    Serious question - Who is their last recruit, not named McCaffrey, to have a P5 offer? Is it Wieskamp back in 2018? Joe Toussaint had zero other P5 offers in 2019. I mean you almost have to try to recruit that poorly!

    When the state of Iowa doesnt produce top 100 level players who grew up diehard Hawk fans Fran is absolutely screwed.

    Hate to break it to Hawk fans but the next high level player in the state of Iowa is Tamin Lipsey in 2022 and he sure as hell isnt going to Iowa.

    I assumed he was heading east based on CB predictions and him going to their game with black and gold hair. He is exactly what we need to replace Jacobson. Really hope we get him.
