I wanted a centralized place for commitments and known offers/targets. Separate from the master list of every human being who can dribble entering the transfer portal. Please keep this to OFFERS and Credible interest only!

As of 4/11/2021, ISU has 2 open scholarships


Committed:

Tyrese Hunter
- 6'1" PG (Racine, WI)


-

Transfers:

Aljaz Kunc
- 6'8" (2021/22 Junior) Wing/Stretch 4 (Washington St): Strong rebounder, good 3 point shooting, analytical darling that appeared to be underused


Caleb Grill - 6'3" Guard (2021/22 Junior) (UNLV and ISU): 34% from 3 at UNLV last year. It's grilling season!


Gabe Kalscheur - 6'4"Guard (2021/22 Senior) (Minnesota): Sharpshooter as a freshman, hasn't been the same shooter with the line getting moved back. STUD defender (All-Big-10)


https://www.sports-reference.com/cbb/players/gabe-kalscheur-1.html

Robert Jones - 6'10" Forward (2021/22 Junior) (Denver): Traditional big guy, plays like Conditt in his high school highlights below


-

Known OTZ interest:

TRANSFER's

Tanner Groves
- 6'9" (2021/22 Senior) Forward/Center (Eastern Washington): Dominant post player, solid 3 point shooting and strong rebounding



Cam'Ron Fletcher - 6'6" Wing (2021/22 Sophomore) (Kentucky); Former Top 70, 4-star out of Missouri. Barely played at Kentucky, super long and a good rebounder, 3 point shot is a work in progress



Noah Locke - 6'3" Guard (2021/22 Senior) (Florida): Really good 3 point shooter (40% in 2020/21), great size for a guard, former 4-star, #80 overall recruit in 2018



Mason Madsen - 6'4" Guard (2021/22 Sophomore) (Cincinnati): Prtotype SG, former247 crystal balls to UNI (Kyle Green conection), OK 3 point shooter but so much unknown as he was a freshman this past season



Greg Williams Jr - 6'3" Combo guard (2021/22 Senior) (St John's): #155 out of high school in Louisiana, Great athlete, 45% 3 point shooter (2.5 attemps/game), made a BIG jump this last season



Jemarl Baker - 6'5" combo guard (2021/22 junior) (Arizona, Transferred from Kentucky after freshman season): Big-time bucket getter, injured his hand after 12 games this season but shot 34% (5 attemps/game). Former top 75 4-star. Has a lot of JCL in his game. Really solid analytics

Lol, you guys really pay for that kind of stuff? If I want unsubstantiated internet rumors there are plenty of places to get them for free.
Everything CW has told us will happen on the Premium Board has happened so far.

Nice to know a week ahead of time what's real and what's Internet scuttlebutt.

Most of what you've heard on here is nonsense. Nice to sort through that.

Also more direct back and forth with CW, Blum and Stansbury is nice.

I think the point of the premium board is to avoid unsubstantiated internet rumors.
Not sure I understand this logic. Is Chris thinking that only subscribers have contacts and then will post there looking for confirmation? I'm guessing the more likely scenario is non subscribers will pick something up from Twitter then start rumor mills right here.

I see the tweets where players have heard from Iowa State or Iowa state has contacted/called. - Is that really an Iowa State offer or even credible interest? Or did ISU just call to judge interest of that player or even as a favor to a mutual connection?

I'll try to keep this updated as much as possible. If a CF staffer wants to develop something better than this. Be my guest
Thanks for the separate thread. Can we assume that the Groves brothers are not a pkg. deal then, since we've only offered Tanner?

This was a heavy topic during last year's transfer period. Consensus by people in the know was most tweets mentioning things like "heard from Iowa State" often means an exploratory call was made by an assistant (not an offer), and in some cases a flat out stretch-the-truth PR move to enhance a player's public perception by mentioning a P6 school on their list.

Granted offers can and do come after exploratory calls, but I guess we'll learn soon how much smoke gets put out there in recruiting by the new coaching staff.
