    We need to sign him because he is the best instate recruit in the past few years. Iowa does not produce a lot of bb talent, and what it does produce tends to be from the Quad Cities region, and not from Des Moines area. Most of the them grew up wanting to play for Iowa.

    We need to change that outlook, and start getting the best instate player every few years.

    I tend to agree that ISU need to get at least a couple in state guys, if they are good enough to help. It seems like there are a lot of decent non-power 5 guys that come out of the state, but very few can't miss P5 players. A lot of those guys are Hawk fans for some reason, even though the Iowa basketball program has only risen to mediocrity a couple times in the last 2 decades.

    It will not be the end of the world if ISU doesn't get Foster, but he is pretty good, and getting him over Iowa would produce the kind of meltdown that we all enjoy.

    He was not dominant verses the Mallard Ducks! Troy Larson and the rest of the Ducks defeated Loren “Spike” Meyer and Ruthven-Ayrshire several times!

    If Foster was not good enough to help ISU, we would not be recruiting him, I did not say, we should recruit a kid, just because he is from Iowa, we shouldn't. But when one comes along, that can help the program, we need to start landing them instead of Iowa.

    The world will not end if Foster signs elsewhere, but I hope he signs with ISU.

    Haha, I know it sounds wishy washy and like an “I know a guy” type of deal, but these guys knew about the Prohm hire, they knew about the THT commitment and lots of other little stories.

    I trust them

    I think you were right a few weeks ago. I think we were the clear favorite and he was just visiting the other schools to see what they offered. However, fairly confident he no longer is all-in as he probably was over the summer.

    I have lived in eastern Iowa for 7+ years and frequent Fuzzy's taco shop in Coralville. Multiple times, the guy working the counter asks if I'm from Oskaloosa because he's pretty sure he knows me. Every time I tell him I'm from north of Clear Lake and have only driven through Oskaloosa two times in my life. Restaurant workers from Oskaloosa don't know ****

    Can't wait for the Hoks to blame it on overrecruiting and his GF.

    How confident are you?

    I get it’s fun to take it to these insecure hawk fools, and this is a top level troll. but you’re gonna take grief if he goes to Iowa.

    I'd be thrilled to get Foster. I've watched him a handful of times in high school, and my honest analysis is that he looks bored. At some point posting up a 6'3" kid from Chariton would get a little old, but in the games I've watched he's always made plays when needed. He has rare size and athleticism and I think it will translate well to college.

    Dominoes. Providence knew they were out last week when they offered Ogundele. It’s going to be funny when Foster picks ISU and Ogundele picks Providence.
