    It’s funny for how much hawks love to bring up Pollard getting asked to leave a high school game by a ref who stepped over the line (since the IHSAA apologized to JP) they ignore the McCaffery’s antics. The Mrs. has been kicked out of a college game, post game interviews, aau games, and high school games, and Fran has been rather close himself at high school games.

    Looks like they just did. Hawkeyes got the big man they wanted all along!

    Seems like a kid with a good story. Hope he succeeds.

    That said, Iowa’s recruiting class is... WOOF.

    This Iowa recruiting class has got to be the worst 5 man class of all time. 5 players! Not one in the top 250 of the 247 composite..

    Go to Iowa's 2020 offers page on 247 and see what they got at each position. Trust me on this one

    When you breathe a sigh of relief because you beat Rutgers out for a recruit.....you might have a problem.

    They literally only got commitments from the lowest ranked recruit at every position they offered. That has to be all time bad.

    I admit I don't watch a lot of recruit videos, but if the best they have to build up hype on him is a video of him standing around in old mix match sneakers, dribbling around by himself, shooting short, uncontested jumpers and dunks on a hoop with a ripped net, then that isn't saying much. Seriously, I could make a video similar to that and I didn't even play in high school.

    I don't think Weiskamp will play as bad as he did yesterday. But I also don't think Kriener and CJF will shoot 83% from the field either. I agree I don't think it bodes well for them at all.

    Their fans are definitely working to put a shine on this. And of course Iowa State isn’t really all that good.

    we get just a dose of the insecure losers here. When they’re in there safe spaces, it burns with the intensity of a thousand suns.

    but they don’t care about Iowa State

    I honestly feel bad for anybody committing to that program right now. You have a coach that will not be fired, a fanbase straight up on the edge, and they could be coming into a pit of negativity they may not fully understand.

    How the **** is he gonna get open to take shots? I think he’s a good player. But he’s going to get smothered on the perimeter, and they don’t have anyone else that can make the defense pay on a consistent basis, Garza included.

    It really doesn't move the needle on Fran's recruiting rankings (JO is #301 currently) but after Monday and the implosion that EIU's fanbase was going through just getting a recruit with a Big 10 offer has to be a massive win.
    It'll distract the hok fans for a while and I am sure they are all ready talking themselves into Ogundele being better than Foster.

    You definitely don’t care about Iowa. Definitely.
