    It's quite possible Clark is the only remaining target for the staff. I don't know if there are any other current offers out there for 2020 recruits.

    Speaking of bigs one of the tallest, if accurate metric conversion, is Julianna Okosun a 6'4" post from Denmark. Watch her videos and you can see she has good quick hands, can jump, has a knack for getting to the spot of a rebound, athletic, decent foot speed and seems to be blocking out well. Doubt she has seen Big Twelve level posts. Seems we are in on her early.

    Leilani Kapinus (Milwaukee) had a season ending ACL injury December 2018 and interesting to see where she ends up. Kid from North Dakota Lauren Ware is new to big time recruiting and, also, would be curious to see where she goes. Ware has eliminated Iowa State.

    Kapinus tweeted her top 15 back in March (which doesn't include ISU). That gives a good idea of where she might go.

    UUggh. I see now where Iowa is listed by both Ware and Kapinus as still in the hunt.

    If I am not mistaken, Ware wants to be a dual sport athlete. That's tough for programs to juggle these days.

    You are correct. And would be tough when volleyball conference and NCAA games overlap with basketball NC. Basketball coach has to be okay waiting for her later in December. She's a highly sought after recruit so she's got some power to play in her recruiting.

    I think Minnesota would be a good choice for her. Really good in VB and maybe poised to rebound in WBB.

    Okosun has good body control, moves well and sees the floor.

    Fun to follow these recruits but I see UCONN is hot on her.

    Some AAU highlights for Kylie Feuerbach, mostly just showing her ability to attack the rim.


    BTW - The All Iowa Attack team Kylie and Aubrey Joens play on competed at the Nike EYBL nationals last week and had another great tournament, finishing 2nd. Caitlin Clark didn't play due to making the USA team. (Last year they won the EYBL nationals with Caitlin playing.)

    Looks like Ware is down to (eliminated ISU previously) to a top 5 of Arizona, Minnesota, Texas, Tennessee and UCLA.

    It seems like Emily Ryan's aau team doesn't get as much press as our other 2020 verbals' teams, so she's not getting as much attention during the summer as they are. But here are a couple tweets about her.
