    Enjoyed that very much. Jalen sounds like a very high quality individual. He'll represent Iowa State very well. Welcome Jalen!

    I just listened to the quote again and I think he meant teams they play every year. I’m editing it for clarity.

    I was only on the phone with him for about 10 minutes but I was very impressed. He’s sharp.

    Sounds like a smart guy that understands what it takes to win. Yes, that was the most cliche basketball quote ever, but it’s what came to mind first...omg, that makes me cliche.

    The fact that he focused on leadership and work ethic when talking about his fit is exciting. Love him from a talent standpoint but if he can also bring some additional leadership and maturity that would be great and it seems like that will be a big focus for him. Could be mostly talk but I'm optimistic, from the whole interview he seems like a really polished and mature kid. So excited to have gotten him.

    Sounds like almost an ideal fit culture wise coming from a more rural setting and tight knit boarding school. Seems like he should've committed a month ago just from hearing what he was looking for

    That's what I got out of the interview also. His qualities are things that help build a cohesive unit that can then use talent to produce a winning combination.
