    Seems talented. I hope/think we’ll target a pg or combo, but we’ll see.

    We are pretty well set at guard. After next season we would potentially only have Conditt and Foster we will need another big imo. Zion will help at the 4 but we still need a true post.

    Definitely set at wing.

    Not sure on pgs and shooters. Jackson is that. Maybe Walker. Grill could develop into that. Bolton will be an off-guard imo, that isn’t a shooter until proven otherwise.

    For bigs we’d have Conditt, Foster, Zion, and Johnson. Potentially Blackwell playing the four, too. I’d rather be short an extra true 4 or true 5 rather than short an extra pg and/or shooting.

    This is assuming the spot that opens is from a guard leaving

    This was the dude that narrowed his list down to 3 schools. Then like a half hour later committed to St Louis. Everyone was like so why did you list 3 schools. IT was a weird deal. Missouri, Kansas, and St Louis. Missouri thought he was going there and then he just decided St Louis out of the blue.

    Jackson and Grill hitting -- as true guards/shooters/SGs or CGs -- is really important. Good news is, they both looked pretty good so far and the reports are good.

    If those two pan out as rotation guys (at least) the next four years, then the past recruiting class ended up a pretty solid one (even with zilch from Anderson and Leech).

    I’m buying that tandem for the next four years. In terms of substance, they seem of the mold of Naz and Thomas.

    And I love the roster construct that’s forming. Granted it often looks good this far out, but it looks like a great collection of complementary assets. Just need one or two to emerge as mismatches.

    A class can be solid in the long-run, yet not good enough in the short-term. Misses happen, but missing on two spots going into a year that is likely to be on the bubble is a tough misstep. Grayer would be nice to have this year, for example.

    Did we ever establish who the current 2020 commit is that @Artic Zone said the staff would be more excited about than Foster?

    My guess is Jaden Walker.

    Who would have predicted that ISU would have 3 guys in the conference top 10 of assist to turnover percentage already and none of them would be named Tyrese?

    I have a Hawkeye source that says they didn’t want Foster anyway.

    Any goofy tweener power forwards in the pipeline for Iowa when this one's a miss?

    Yes, and Tyrese leads our team in turnovers. I'm very concerned. ;)

    I’m equally excited for Foster, if we land him, skilled bigs are in short supply, but...

    Guards and wings rule the day. Blackwell is 6’6” with a 7’1” wingspan and good vertical. Plays on a loaded prep team.
