    He walked on at Iowa and the state of Kentucky didn't have a top 150 public school recruit that year

    Saw this tweet on my phone, went to post it here and it looks like it may have been deleted. Odd, unless I’m missing something.

    Maybe.. Realistically there should be one of these guys who turns into an okay player, but it's even tough to say that considering collectively, the best school that has offered any of these players is DePaul.

    I feel like some of these writers and reporters say things like this about Iowa's basketball recruits in order to lead their fans astray as to what is really going on. Iowa fans that don't follow recruiting or those that don't do actual research, will look at this thinking this is some sort of recruiting victory.

    Gary Dolphin had the balls to actually say something about it and was reprimanded so maybe Fran has similar pull with the reporters as well.

    2015 - Moss had a Hoiberg offer plus Auburn. Wagner had a Minnesota offer. Fleming originally had some P5 offers and Hutton had an offer from Wisconsin and West Virginia

    2014 - Uhl and Dickerson had quite a few P5 offers and Ellingson had a Mizzou offer

    This truly is historic. Like not trolling I guarantee this hasn't been done at a major conference program before

    Yes.. This class truly takes the cake as far as bad classes go. Those classes listed above were definitely not good and honestly this 2020 class looks to be not just worse than those two, but much worse.

    I didn't think it was possible for Fran to do worse than those two classes so kudos to him for proving me wrong

    The Fran Strategy has become painfully (to the hoks) clear...Tank the recruiting classes so that the two Fran juniors are viewed as the big fish in the small pond, cementing their legacy in hok history. Why else would you do this?

    And for those wondering, in no way would Mrs. Fran ever let her kids be taken off of scholarship.

    And this is with only one son playing up to this point. It's hard to believe Fran's recruiting could get worse, but it's a distinct possibility.

    Is Fran deciding his strategy to begin retirement in 3 years?

    Let this sink in for the hok fans perusing this thread...you will have Fran on the sidelines and two Fran juniors on the court...fully 50% of the coach/on court players will be Fran's.

    What could go wrong...
