He picked up an offer from Iowa State too. He seemed more excited about Iowa's offer at least on Twitter. :D

Slight tangent, but when I made up imaginary basketball teams/leagues as a kid, I would always have a guy named Tyrone Boudreaux. He had sort of an Iverson game but more perimeter oriented and he was 6'5".

So he was a chucker but not necessarily a maker? I always led my imaginary teams in scoring. Probably averaged around 30 a game. I played for Iowa, and we had a game everyday. Played every team in the country. For some reason Maine was our big rival and we always met in the championship.

That is more or less the only explanation for Zach McCabe continuing to get serious minutes so yes.

Hahahaha. Same.

On about a 7' hoop so I could hammer it home. The Hawkeyes routinely went undefeated and won the title in my days.

First day to make contact with 2015 recruits, and according to a tweet from @tyga hawk, Iowa coaches have spoken to Joseph Toye (6'7 F Chicago), Aaron Jordan (6'4 G IL), Evan Boudreaux (6'7 PF IL) and Donovan Mitchell (G-F CT). There are probably a number of others who've been contacted.

Jordan's coach's tweet about the Iowa call:

Illinois Stars 16U ‏@CoachILStarsAAU 3h
University of Iowa just had a great conversation with Aaron Jordan. Good thing you don't pay per minute for mobile calls these days!

He's not being recruited by Iowa according to Tom. Has family in the area. Just stopped by to see the facilities.

Like Egi, Scotia's Nevell Provo is also a #CdnBallers slash #CdnSchlolars. Iowa have offered the PG from 902 a full ride. Marshall also.

Translation: Iowa has offered 2015 PG Nevell Provo from Canada, according to this person.

so no Ulis I presume
I wouldn't read anything into a 2015 recruit having something to do with Ulis as Iowa is likely going to take one then either way given they lose Clemmons and Gesell not long after.

Brady Ernst, a 6-8 PF from Clinton will take an unofficial to Iowa this week according to Kakert. I like this kid's potential a lot.

Ernst is the only member of the Barnstormers roster I can recall having drawn specific positive comments for his play this summer among the scouts I follow on Twitter. That doesn't mean others didn't perform well, but he seems to have emerged as the best of their 2015 kids thus far.

Jeebus. For 6'8" he jumps like a 500 pound midget.

That was some NBA level of traveling at one point in that vid.

From Mikey thinking that White can't really jump that well to this comment, I am convinced HALO posters have no fucking idea how to measure dunking ability.

This kid jumps more than well for a white sophomore.

Just saying that if he's a legit 6'8", average standing reach is 8'11". He shouldn't just barely be getting it over the rim like he does in some of those.

He isn't "barely" getting them over, he is dunking with ease, especially for a Sophomore in High School that is white.
