And extremely calm.
This is a solid post.
But it's not an incredible post.
Nope, Just realistically, objectively solid.
Not "amazing" either.
Tucker has "will he graduate or go pro" concerns and only "proved it" at UALR. Gilder has injury concerns, though it appears that he is now healthy. Both of them would be one-year rentals, and Bolton could be here as much as the next three years.
Bolton is definitely the volume scorer we need from the 2-3 spot and proved it at a high-major level. I know we like to rag on the Big Ten here, but that conference was really good last year, too. Penn State finished #32 on Bart Torvik and #43 on KenPom, so while it was not a great team, it was at least a decent one. It was parallel in the computer rankings with teams like Oklahoma, Oregon, Syracuse, and Baylor who all made the tournament.
I think there's a case that Tucker or Gilder would have higher upsides for next year, but assuming Bolton is immediately eligible, I do not see there being much of a drop-off from the graduate transfer guys down to Bolton. Bolton could be a starter for the next 2-3 years in Ames, too, which automatically makes him a better long-term play.
Yeah, I thought the story was that Kane wanted Johnson at Murray (or whichever place fits the timing of his career) and did not end up with him. If Kane thinks he sees something there, and a guy with Shayok size who hit 40%+ from three as a freshman is definitely something, then I trust Kane and Prohm on that one. I know he was not very good at Troy, but I doubt he had the coaching and system to make him shine like he will in Ames. Another year to practice, mold him, and get better could turn him into a really nice piece. I remember some SEC schools, like South Carolina, started sniffing around him towards the end, too, so the fact we targeted him early and locked him down before the competition came in feels good.
Funny how you left out Shayok and Jacobsen.
I thought it was the dangling preposition.
I've been told I have an incredible post...
Misunderstood might be appropriate as well.
C'mon man - there are CHILDREN on these boards! You can't talk about your dangler.
Did he do the thing yet
And a horrible memory
So with Cumberland returning to Cinncy (PG tweeted yesterday withdrawing his name) and with Wigg's saying officially he is not withdrawing his name, sure seems like he will be coming to ISU
Anyone worried that Bolton transferred to 4 or 5 different high schools and now is transferring one year after being at Penn State? Kind of makes me a little nervous. Then again if he bolts we can always find a new guy.
Transfers are the new normal. Players have been empowered to take more ownership of their playing careers. There's good and bad that comes with that. People don't have to like it, but ignore it at your own risk.
