    He'd be a quality walk-on.

    I would rather have Morrow but he is better than I expected him to be

    From the article it appears that is speculation likely because he is from Iowa and he may like the idea of playing close to home.

    ISU didn't offer him out of HS and I doubt the staff would have any connection to him. Considering the rumors of how impressed they were with Morrow after the scrimmage compared to the other Nebby players I don't know if the staff would be that interested at this point. He is an interesting name that has played at P5 school so I could see the staff taking a look at him if their early priorities fall through.

    So the Franny Pack should be extending an offer shortly.

    Serious question, would Jacobson be any worse than Holden, Kasongo or Carter?

    Career numbers:

    Holden: 4.7 ppg 3.0 rpg in 14 min at Louisiana Tech. 2.4 ppg and 2.0 rpg in 11 min at ISU

    Kasongo: 1.4 ppg and 1.5 rpg in 5.5 minutes at Tennessee

    Carter: 0.8 ppg and 0.5 rpg in 2.6 minutes at Iowa State

    Jacobson: 5.3 ppg and 5.0 rpg in 21 minutes at Nebraska


    Not saying ISU should take Michael Jacobson solely because he's better than Holden, Carter and Kasongo but I think he's better than the walk on some people are making him out to be.

    My guess is he'll end up at a high major, just not Iowa State.

    They made it that one year and got steamrolled by Baylor in their only game.

    Which is actually pretty impressive by Nebrasketball standards.

    He would bust his ass and play hard. Every team needs the 1 white guy that will do that.

    We could use a player like him. Not everyone can be a 12 and 8 guy. Nothing wrong with bringing a guy like him off the bench to bring some energy, play some defense, and rebound.

    I think he'd be appealing if he were a grad transfer but he'd be a bench guy at ISU, its tough to justify jumping on a sit out guy that won't start, especially with some of the other guys still out there. He'll end up at a p6 school and have a solid couple of years.

    Honestly a player like him could really turn Drake around not likely where he'll go but man do they ever need D1 talent there.

    That would be disappointing if we got him after hearing all the names we're in on.

    I am pretty close with his family and they said that they expect the ISU coaching staff to reach out as there has been some communication behind the scenes before this was made official (not from ISU coaching staff to him or his family directly) and Iowa State came off as if they were going to recruit Jacobson as a backup option. They said that he will give a hard look at UNI, but other P5 schools will come calling and he will explore those options as well

    thats basically what was posted on pay sites. ISU staff and him will talk and he may visit Ames but he's not priority number one right now.
