    I lol'd thinking that he chose Iowa just because he didn't want to tell Mad Fran no. Finally his anger issues come through.

    IDK what a normal amount of CBs for a recruit would me but there are already 5 CBs in for Iowa with one of them being Jerry Meyer.

    it doesn’t seem like this is a really hot commitment on 247 with both Iowa schools being the final two.

    Conditt is a shot blocking machine, so we're good there.

    I don't really follow recruiting but seems like we get better recruits from outside Iowa.

    CSP is a good recruiter so I'm sure he will move on and find a suitable replacement.

    For many Iowa fans this is probably a national story or should be.

    I actually did - out loud - to my friend/source. He reassured me that the difficulty with saying "no" to Iowa was about the long-standing relationship (with their entire staff) than the anger management issues of Fran. But, I sure as heck wouldn't want to cross Fran & be called a cheatin' ************.

    Isu basketball will be more than fine...

    XF needs isu b-ball a lot more than isu needs him.. Same goes for any recruit.

    however at Iowa... Fran has to have this or that fan base was in full Fire Fran mode. Not hard to read the hundreds of posts on all their boards saying as much.

    Has one single “real” isu fan called for CSP head for losing out on XF? Nope.

    I thought I saw a video once where Foster jumped off the ground so this can't be it.

    So our program is bigger than one recruit?

    At this point I hope he chooses Iowa.

    recruitment has been a **** show. Seems like his dad controls it all.

    wouldn’t be surprised if he transferred from Iowa down the road.

    I can confirm that his dad has been an issue. But it seems like we were willing to deal with it for Xavier’s potential.

    Personally I'll be at 8.5. I tend to expend energy on those that want to be part of #CyclONEnation
