    Nixon proved he could shoot the 3 in conference play? Now that is hilarious. I guess I’m not going to get super excited about a shooting guard who averages 11 ppg and shoots 36% from the field and 31% from 3 while turning the ball over 3 times a game. If that’s our big transfer get for next year, we are totally screwed.

    McGowens is sit one play two. He would be a great get. I’m less concerned about a guy that has played two years in the ACC and scored over 20 points seven times during that period. This type of player has the potential to be a monster.

    He is not comparable in anyway to Eaddy. Who is 6”2 and maybe 165 pounds.

    A lot want him cause he was a 4 star guy out of high school. He hasn’t panned out as well in college.

    This is probably the type of transfer player we are in the running for at this point. Getting all conference type transfers to play at ISU right now is a pipe dream. Why would they come here?

    Well yea since we are reaching out to every transfer out there and hoping they are interested. If you don’t think Prohm is desperate right now to get guys, you are more clueless than I thought.

    Steve Prohm can't go into next season hoping his Freshman will produce, so I doubt he gets more than 1-2 "sit-out" transfers, otherwise he'll never see what they become at Iowa State because his ass will head back to the South.

    You can just admit you were wrong and Prohm isn't incredibly desperate for going after McGowens

    Prohm's desperate to find high level guys, that's true. Going after the Pitt guy is not being desperate at all considering his long list of suitors.

    Remember when we were crushed when we lost a recruit we wanted to Hawaii? It seems like we're getting back to that point.

    Yeah I don't see Prohm going after one guy yet that is thinking of transferring to a mid major school so I think we're fine right now.

    Why would players want to come to Iowa State someone asked? Because Prohm's going to put you into an opportunity to showcase your skills / abilities. Shayok, Bolton, Nixon, Jacobson. Those are the last 4 transfers to player here. Every single one of them were a focal point on their respective teams. Sure, Nixon and Jacobson didn't exactly work out as they should've this year, but they were still starting and getting a ton of significant minutes.

    Nixon shot 26% from 3 last year, and that is with a hot finish. Eaddy has never shot worse than 33.3%, which is pretty comparable to Bolton and Tre over the last year. In conference play last year, Eaddy shot over 36% from 3, and in prior years he'd been more in the 40% range.

    We have the slots open. I say go get this guy and Ellis from Florida (and hopefully an immediately eligible PG as well).

    Jacobson was recruited over at Nebby for 2 years, he finally saw the writing on the wall and left. He wasn't even the Prohm's first choice for players from Nebraska that year.

    Yeah that wasn't exactly my point. My point was that a lot of our transfers have seen very good minutes here. Some have obviously succeeded a lot more due to their ability, but we still are a nice landing spot for guys that want to play at a high level, on a big stage, and in a great arena.

    I don't love Tahj Eaddy's advanced stats nor small frame.

    McGowens is a different story. He hasn't put it completely together offensively but he already was one of the best defenders in the ACC. You're out of your mind if you wouldn't take McGowens with 4 spots to fill.
