    @BobbyLaGesse: Visited ISU RT @GoodmanESPN BC transfer Ryan Anderson told ESPN he had committed to Arizona.

    He is reinforcing the thought that if a transfer doesn't commit on their visit it probably isn't happening.

    @TravisHines21: Heard all along that prospect of playing in a Niang/McKay/Nader/Williams frontcourt was a detractor for Anderson. Minutes tough in AZ too.

    Well, that was a good run with an exciting prospect. Too bad it didn't work out, but we're plenty talented as it is.

    Don't want someone like that on our team, if he's good enough he can beat others out for minutes.

    If Arizona loses a main few to the NBA, he gets immediate playing time I suppose. Not so sure its more of just being in an area closer to his California environment. Oh well.

    I had a feeling w/ Arizona on the short-list, he might lean toward the (currently) higher profile situation — unless the "fit" at Iowa State made it closer to 50-50.

    Different topic. This is about his commitment not his visit.

    So he didn't like that he had to compete for time? Guess he's the type of player that felt he was entitled to the starting job. As much as it sucks missing out on him, in a way, him being scared of minutes goes to show you how busy and stacked our front court will really be next year.

    Exactly my thoughts too. It's a good problem to have when we lose recruits because they are afraid they won't get enough playing time because we are that stacked already (although it would be better for ISU if he did commit). I just have a hard time believing Arizona is much better.

    Arizona has young incoming freshman at the big man position, so I guess he feels he can beat them out versus an experienced ISU frontcourt that will have all upper classmen.

    That makes sense. I really wish we would have gotten him. We would have had so much depth.
    *Cue Iowa depth joke*
