Yeah, I know... really early to be posting this, but incoming freshman Ben Coupet, Jr. of Simeon Prep has named us as one of his top choices thus far per his father, Coupet, Sr. Looks to be an extraordinary talent. If we establish a relationship early on, and start winning regularly, who knows.

''A former Simeon basketball star is charged with domestic battery for allegedly assaulting his girlfriend while holding her against her will for eight hours inside his Mercedes early Saturday.''

I bet she really had to pee after that. My wife can't be in a car for an hour without having to go.

Iowa has offered Jerry Myles, a wing from Davenport West. Also has an offer from Iowa State.

From the article on Pops:

As a 6-foot-9 forward for Simeon, Coupet once scored 8 points in 9 minutes during a 72-45 victory over Davidson, Ala., in Dec., 1990.

This isn't Iowa related, but Seventh Woods is perhaps the most athletic kid I have ever seen. He makes Russell Westbrook look like Bill Wennington.

He is 14 years old, already been in Colorado Springs for Team USA and led his High School Varsity team in points, rebounds and blocks as an 8th grader.

Did I mention he is only 6'2''?

The Russell Westbrook comment was obvious hyperbole, but that kid is ridiculously athletic for a 14 year old.

Good lord.

I wonder if he can shoot. The 4:00 mark leads me to believe he has decent touch.

I think I speak on behalf of HaLo when I express my disappointment that you have finally sunk so low as to begin using hyperbole, doug. You had such a good run, but you've changed, man.

I have a friend that coaches 4A HS Basketball and he said that Myles is a huge piece of shit and has a terrible attitude and work ethic. He makes Ricky Davis look like a model citizen.

Yep. I have been told this by multiple people, even the guys in Rock Island who are huge Illini fans said they would want no part of this kid. I didn't get to make it to any of his HS games this winter but I also heard he wasn't all that impressive anyway, granted he's only a Freshman, but there are some HUGE redflags with with kid already.

There are rumors out there that Myles and another kid from West are going to transfer next year.

I was really surprised to see that Davenport West finished 9-14 on the year. Not only did they have Miles, but they also had Marlon Stewart, a 2015 guard who projects as a D1 recruit. Add to that well-regarded players like Shabazz and Butler, and it really makes you wonder if there were some major chemistry problems on that squad. Sure they were young, but they were too talented to finish with a record like that.

Butler has already enrolled at Central from what I'm told. Stewart and Myles are the 2 that are also rumored to be on their way out.

Myles may be a prick as a freshman in high school, but he could still grow out of that. I don't claim to know anything about the kid, but should be interesting to see this develop. His video was pretty impressive for his age. Although I wish the IA Elites videos could be a little more grainy.

If you think we aren't looking at bohannon you are retarded. It's not every year that multiple freshmen have d-1 offers in iowa.

I'll admit to being a little ashamed of how much I hate this kid for no other reason than his last name.

Jerry Myles will be attending Sunshine Christian for his sophomore season- the same prep school that Gabe attended, and current target Nairn attends.

According to a tweet by Howe, Cordell Pemsl recently visited Iowa again. Can't see the details, not a Scout member.

Glad to hear of the recent visit (perhaps he was at the NIU game?) in light of his participation in the Purdue camp.

K.J. Santos' offer from the Hawkeyes is his 9th to date from a D1 school. He has also visited the Iowa City campus.

What kind of ceiling does this kid have as far as rankings go? Any idea, Chane?
