    I would guess it will be a fall decision. But I'm skeptical that we land him. He would be a huge get.

    Race seems like a smart kid who would place a lot of value on a good relationship with his college coach. Hopefully Prohm gives him the Lindell treatment and puts on the full court press this summer/early fall and that seals the deal. If Prohm lands Race and a 75-150 rated PG/SG (AJ Green, TJ Moss, Jordan Lathon, Kyler Edwards) that would be a great 2 years of recruiting and really the best back to back classes ISU basketball has ever seen. Lindell, Terrence, and Race would be a hell of a core for the next few years.

    I love early decisions by your primary targets because you can live to fight another day if you come up short

    Let's hope we can use it for the other possible use, to hold him up as a part of your class your other potential recruits would want to play with. SG's will love his passing out of the block/high post, he can move out and play along side another big, etc.

    at this point and the way things have gone lately until these recruits are on campus in a cyclone uniform it doesn't matter when he commits.

    “I would say the schools that have been showing more interest are Michigan, Michigan State and Indiana, and the same schools that have been recruiting me are coming after me even harder,”

    Good to see Prohm realizes the heat is picking up on Race. Gotta stay out in front of these schools trying to come back in late.

    Except it's really not late for schools like Michigan State and Indiana, maybe even Michigan because of their name.

    I have a feeling he's destined for a Big 10 school. Felt that way for a little while now.

    I don't expect Race to going to ISU with all of those Big 10 schools now involved plus Minnesota.

    I was under the impression he is just as likely not to go Big10 route than he is, because he wasn't wanting to follow the rest of his family. If that is in fact the case, not sure what them being Big10 teams has anything to do with it?

    It'd be tough to turn down any of those 3 schools.

    It's really going to be a neck and neck race to land Race.

    I'll see myself out...

    I don't get too excited anymore until a player signs a LOI (if that means anything anymore) and actually lands on ISU campus.

    I'm hoping that Georges coincidentally pays a visit when Race comes down to Ames.

    Race is very similar is style to Niang..WTS..i will be 100% shocked if we land him for the simple reason that we are like 0-200 with Minnesota kids..
