    Although he's lost a lot of fan support (and rightly so), it'd be in ISU's best interest for him to get out there and succeed on the court. Get it done Royce!

    He will report to Rio on February 11. Rio plays the Iowa Energy in Des Moines on February 10. Is he trying to avoid the Des Moines media?

    He's supposed to return the day after he would have had to play in Des Moines..is that a coincidence? I wonder if he was afraid of being heckled, since Iowans have followed him more than the fans of the Maine Crab Cakes(or whatever they're called) and didn't want to deal with it

    You can bet your Farm that there'd be more than one Hok fan in the Energy game getting their shots in at Royce

    I wonder if he is in any kind of playing shape.

    Not gonna lie, I love this news. Sounds like he has finally gotten the "support" or whatnot that he expected from the Rockets, and now the Rockets will get to see everything he can do on the court that we were privileged enough to watch for a year.

    Thank you Royce for taking that step towards being a professional.

    I bet you're correct. I'm sure Wells Fargo employs more than one janitor.

    Not going to lie, I don't care if he fails or succeeds now. I've lost all respect for him as a person.

    He owes it to himself, and he owes it to Fred who vouched for the guy with the Rockets, otherwise you wonder how far he would have fallen, if Fred didn't convince them to take a chance.

    Not sure if I agree about the way Royce went about this, but I respect that he stood up for something that he obviously cares about. While I will stay away from him on Twitter, I wish him nothing but the best! Good luck Royce!

    Don't you think he heard some jeering on the road when he was playing at Iowa State considering his history in Minnesota? Dude had to have a huge target on his back.

    Not losing sleep over whether he plays or not...but still would love to see him succeed. I think he'll put everything together in time.
