    If it isn't obvious yet, I would not believe anything that UNLV guy says. And like CW said, I wouldn't count the Kansas visit out yet.

    Here's a recent article (April 11 and a much more reputable source than Inside the Rebels - more on that at the bottom of this post) regarding UNLVs class. What's most interesting to me is that UNLV received commits from 3 forwards:

    https://www.reviewjournal.com/sports/unlv/unlv-basketball/unlv-basketball-hopes-to-take-step-forward-with-2nd-recruiting-class/

    UNLV just lost 3 players to transfer and the coach doesn't appear to be opposed to releasing players currently on scholarship:

    It should be noted that the UNLV writer that has a high level of vitriol against ISU had to remove an article he published about Anthony Smith (their 6-7 Juco recruit) after he published an article that erroneously stated that the player had been dismissed from his Juco Program, so this guy may not have the most credible sources.

    Like our chances. Prohm has done pretty well recruiting IMO. I think we get Juiston. Morrow as well. We would take Garrison Brooks but I don''t think we get him. We take Edwards and one grad transfer at guard. That is how I see it shaking out.

    Edwards taking other visits kind of tells me that we are waiting to see what Egor and Brown are going to do first.

    Swimming against the tide, but do we really need Morrow if we get Juiston? For the only year we get Morrow we would have Juiston as a senior, Young as a Junior, Lard as a sophomore. Race Thompson would be looking at very little playing time his freshman year if Morrow is here, which could hurt us in his recruitment. I am just not sure we need both Juiston and Morrow. I really like Murrow's game, but is it worth 2 years for 1 with what is on campus now?

    Do not think this is true. Iowa State would have taken Edwards had he committed on the visit, I am told.

    Just to clarify, Hutchinson is closer to a 3 hour drive from Lawrence.

    If nothing else the Juiston watch should be coming to end soon. Maybe by this weekend? The faster the staff know the decision the better.

    @AdamZagora 6-foot-7 Hutch star Shakur Juiston begins an official to DePaul tomorrow, his coach tells me. Was at UNLV this weekend.

    The other thought is how much PT would Thompson get as a FR if both Lard and Juiston pan out? Not only that, but I think the likelihood of Thompson playing right away is extremely low after seeing how it worked out with Solomon Young. If a guy like Morrow were to commit our young posts would have the ability to practice everyday against D1 talent everyday, which I think would better prepare our team for the future. Getting a kid like Thompson would be huge from a recruiting standpoint in that it puts ISU in the conversation with elite prospects, but I think a commitment from Morrow would mean better development for players like Young, Lard and Lewis.

    These AAU coach things can be deciding factor. That is basically how ISU got Blalock. Don't know how much influence the guy has but if he got him to visit Depaul he must have some pull.

    So, he meant "Was at ISU this weekend", right? Or did I wake up in an alternate universe Monday.

    Zagoria corrected it in his recruiting round up article.

    Now if we really want to read into the tweet we could interpret the reason for citing UNLV instead of ISU visit this weekend is he's hearing whispers about the Rebels inching in front.

    FWIW I think he just tweeted quickly and it was a mistake but the conspiracy angle is more fun .

    From what I've seen Juiston is in Chicago today visiting DePaul, and if CW is right in saying the KU visit is in the air, could it be possible we hear a commitment before the weekend? I would assume ISU is in a pretty good spot unless Shakur is looking for a top notch theatre school in Chicago.

    Interesting that this is by far his most interacted with tweet, I wonder if the folks on here have anything to do with it.....
