    I'm told Iowa State will officially be going in to see Colorado State transfer Prentiss Nixon on Friday. As I reported earlier in the week, the staff had been in the process of deciding how to move forward here and they decided to go forward with an in-home visit on Friday.

    Also, someone will be going in to see South Dakota grad transfer Matt Mooney. This will be the second Friday in a row someone is going to see him so will be interesting to hear what comes out of that.

    I'll see what I can do to update you tomorrow night.

    Only one open scholarship. Jakolby Long was an obvious call to transfer, but I hope we have no other openings after this one. So sort of this situation...

    Well, I would hope that the staff would be out recruiting more players than we have openings.

    Any news on whether the staff will be reaching out to Teague?

    Sure, but they have to be careful with that one slot. Never know what you could get from a late high schooler or a mid-year transfer next year, too.

    Maybe so. But I'd rather strike while the iron's hot. I don't like holding a slot for a Maybe situation that doesn't materialize.

    Getting either would be impressive due to the competition for both. One would have to give us pretty slim odds but we sure don't know what either of them are thinking.

    I bet if we put the full court press on Nixon we'll be right in it until the end

    Loyola was a great story this year but he can land somewhere so much better than the MVC.

    Glad to see we're not giving up on Mooney yet. Even tho it appeared he had mentioned several teams he was considering and we weren't one of them. Guessing we will know after today if that ship has sailed or not.

    Loyola is doing what they should be doing, shooting for the moon after success.

    Riding that heater.

    Assuming that's his priority. He may want to play 33 minutes a game and still be on a winner.

    I don't know what Loyola's enrollment is like or what kind of money they can bring in would be, but I would think they'd be a prime candidate to get an offer to move up into the AAC or the Big East a la Creighton and Wichita State. I would think they'd need to keep being successful for a half decade or so. But, good, sustained basketball and widening the conference net out to Chicago would have to be enticing.

    You think the Big East wants two schools 5 miles apart? No

    If anyone would get a look, St Louis would be a good option. Ford underachieved big time at OSU but a school like that, he could do pretty well.

    Yup. Conference affiliation aside, Loyola is probably a preseason top 25 team next year especially if they land somebody like this kid to step into Richardson's role. I suppose if he wants to be on tv more the Valley isn't the place for him. But if he's looking to win a lot his senior year, Loyola would be a good bet and they might even be good enough that they don't have to worry about the Valley being a one bid league if they get upset in the conference tourney.
