    Why are people arguing about which Chicago suburb is the most affluent in an awesome commitment thread?

    Anyway.... this pick-up is HUGE! A+ for Prohm and Zion!

    I was thinking today about how good the coaches must feel today. The nature of the beast for all but a few schools is coaches get told 'no' much more than they get told 'yes'. So it must be such a high to get a yes, especially one where the timing is a bit of a surprise.

    Yeah that coach that didn't like to recruit (post RV debacle) really ran the program into the ground. I wonder where we would be if we hadn't hired that guy. Good grief.

    Wow.... this kid is the real deal. His game reminds me so much of Burton's, only Griffin is a couple inches taller and thinner. Also, Griffin is a better shot blocker it looks like, while Burton is obviously a bit more physical. But this kid is going to be a beast.

    "Better" shot blocker? Disagree, Deonte was an exceptional shot blocker. To wit:

    I didn't say Deonte wasn't a good shot blocker, did I? I just think watching Griffin's videos that he could be even better. Relax. They're both good shot blockers.

    The guy was the next Tom Izzo if he really invested himself in all aspects of running a college program, and recruiting is obviously always going to be part of that.

    Alas, the big city lights (and dollars) lured him away from us.

    We probably would have had the best 4 year run of the program's history. Oh wait....

    it is to early to tell. Don't forget in 2015 we had 3 guys on our team that are NBA guys (Niang, Morris, Jones). I think our 2019 team has a great chance to do big things. These freshmen will be talented enough to at least add quality depth to go with Lard, Young, Shayok, Wigginton, Lewis, and Babb.

    Prohm's first four years are shaping up to be pretty good.

    Year 1: Sweet 16
    Year 2: Big 12 Championship
    Year 3: Best Recruit Ever is a Freshman
    Year 4: Extremely optimistic right now

    I don't disagree. A lot can change in basketball recruiting but I think we have positioned ourselves well for 2018-19.
    I think some people are a bit delusional about this year's squad but who knows.
    Both coaches were/are very good for Iowa State University and their fans. I just get a little tired of the little digs at Fred. You can be upset with him about leaving Iowa State but he brought back a program that was essentially on life support after the McDermott years.
