    Great news and welcome to CYCLONation Rasir! Credit the staff for having a plan, identifying the needs and executing.

    As for the waiver guess we'll see. Prohm was on record he wanted a immediate eligible guard scorer with the last scholarship so I have to believe they think Bolton's case is legit.

    Hines left this blurb in the Trib's Bolton commitment stroy.
    "Bolton will seek a waiver from the NCAA for immediate eligibility, though the basis for the request remains unclear. Privately, ISU has expressed confidence that Bolton does have a strong case to make with the sport’s governing body, which has recently become liberal in granting waivers."

    Mission accomplished on the spring plan of 1 high school, 1 sit out, and a worthy risk on Bolton being immediately eligible. Fantastic addition whether he gets the waiver or not. Great work by CSP!

    I still think the tongue in cheek way Prohm said something along the lines of, get a guy on the perimeter who can score and we're good for next year, lead me to believe he knew this was coming and he's confident he'll play next year. Either way a great add but he totally changes this season if he can play.

    Conditt progress and healthy productive Solomon even more critical now. Seems inevitable that some new guards or improved returning guards will produce.

    He always seems to have a plan. It doesn't always work -- see UNLV, its bagman, and Shakur Juiston -- but he never seems unprepared addressing the program's needs.

    This years class is example of it all kind of coming together. He locked in his HS kid in late April, appeared to be a step ahead of the Tucker news and got Johnson later the same weekend, then gets Bolton a day after LW made it official. A bunch of things lined up for this to happen but Prohm had a deliberate plan and that plan worked out about as well as even he probably could have imagined.

    Pretty good spring recruiting for us. Hopefully Bolton gets his waiver, but even if he doesn't I'm glad we've got the Italy trip for the guys to mesh a little bit.

    Noted that the usual suspects are awfully quiet.

    That is not signed correctly. All NCAA letters should be signed..

    Oh he can recruit. He just can’t coach, remember?

    Wait a second. You mean he had a plan for what he wanted to do to build his roster?


    Impossible.
