    Hope none of our recruits do it. However, I want to see some kids just say "I thought the school would be much better than it was", "The coach was kind of a jerk to me and the team underachieved last season, so it's a big no from that school". Just think it would be funny.

    Glad Wheeler had a good visit. Now hopefully we can sign him up.

    Is this quote from his dad or Sahvir:

    “Obviously, a world-class guy. He’s a great, great guy. He cares about his family. He’s genuine. He cares about his players. He’s a great guy, a guy you want to be your coach,” Wheeler said. “If you’re looking to hire a coach, you look at Coach Prohm. You look at his core values, the way he runs the program, how his players think of him. Coach Prohm extended a couple of quotes about what his previous point guards and his previous players have said about him, all great things. You can’t ask for a better coach.”

    That, by the way, was about as glowing of a review as you could hope as a fan.

    It sounds like we're about 50/50 on him, between Georgia and ISU. He'd be a great addition this late in the game.

    That is from Sahvir. I haven't talked to his dad. His voice really lit up when I asked him about Prohm. Could tell they've really created a good bond already.

    Gut feeling on if he ends up in a cyclone uniform?

    He certainly walked away from the visit very high on the program. Gut feeling I'd say he ends up in Ames but I guess you never truly know in recruiting until it is a done deal.

    My bet would be yes. His link to Georgia was a TAMU assistant moved there. Now that assistant is the head coach at Kennesaw State. Our link is Prohm and Kennedy.
    (These are my thoughts and I have no sources. I am using public media info.)

    Ahh, good point. I forgot that he became HC at Kennesaw State.

    Don't really have a point to make here but more of a side note... That assistant has had his name all over the FBI investigation today.

    I really hope this guy ends up a Cyclone. He just seems to get it.

    As I said a few days ago, don't put anything past Tom Crean. He's a snake. This should be a no brainer for this kid but nothing would surprise me. No offense to snakes.

    I might not have a good understanding of how much $11,000 cash is but those had to have been some pretty big shoes.

    I bet you could fit 110 one hundred dollar bills in a pair of basketball shoes without too much trouble.

    Accepting donations if anyone wants to test this theory with my size 16s. For science, obviously.

    11, why 11?
    I tell you it's going to take more than 10 and you give me 11?
    Personally I'd take that as an insult.
