I’m pretty excited about Ulis and Perkins. I think they’ll both be productive.

This is great, looks way more athletic than I thought.
good footwork, can pass and shoot it, just a bit chubby and needs some conditioning. sounds familiar.

to make a lousy car metaphor, hopefully he ends up the Civic SI to Garza's Type R.

I don't even know if anyone tracks it, but Iowa's current team has to be somewhere near the bottom in terms of dunks. It doesn't really matter but it seems like the next wave of recruits bring a bit more to the table in that department.

It is tracked. I was just looking at it the other day. Iowa has 26 dunks this year in 18 games.

I was wrong, my man. Never happier to be wrong. Not even going to waste a RATT. That was a dark day.
Think it's probably okay to still be annoyed with offering the Murray twins, but yeah otherwise the class looks fine. Perkins looks much better now and I always felt pretty good about Ulis and Ogundele

Do you have a link? I'm curious how this would compare to past years.

Also, for as much as I love Garza, if there's one knock on him from an NBA perspective, it's probably that he doesn't really elevate. He makes up for it skill-wise though.

I guess but I'm not under the impression that every recruit needs to be a star. In a couple years we will need some more shooting and they fit that role. It also looks like they are long and can defend there position. I'm good with that as your 4th and 5th recruits. If they continue to develop physically maybe they turn into something more but I like them as role players.

I guess I just don't see what the rush in offering them was given the lack of interest they had otherwise. They are the lowest profile recruits I think he's signed

That was always my contention as well and the biggest criticism of it. They clearly, desperately wanted to go to Iowa. There was no serious program that was going to offer and sign them in the fall.

Fran could have simply told Kenyon he was really interested and there was a good shot they might want to offer them in the spring after seeing how their development was coming along. Track them and make a decision in April.

It also would have left open options. What if Iowa makes a deep tourney run and suddenly turns the head of a really good grad transfer or highly ranked high school kid that isn't signed? What if a couple traditional transfers that are better options than the Murray twins happens?

I'm hoping they both turn out to be really solid 6'8'' three point shooters, but still would have made sense to make them wait before you offered them.

Since this is the first thing we have seen from them since November, I looked up their DME team scores.

What a joke of a program for $40k tuition. Nearly every game they play is a 30+ or 40+ point blowout. They aren't getting any benefit of competition.

This year's returning scholarship players + next seasons incoming recruits. Till will obviously not be on scholarship, Pemsl may be gone, Garza may be gone (hopefully not), and there's always the possibility for a surprise. Taking off Till and accounting for one loss (Pemsl) that gets Fran to his 13 with the flexibility of using one of the McCaffery boy's scholarships if he truly landed a big time recruit or transfer. I don't think he would do this, but he could with this team as I don't see much of a need for any of the freshmen guards or wings playing much next season. I could see a need for another post with Garza's uncertainty, Pemsl's shitty play, and Nunge coming off an ACL.

Bohannon

Pemsl
Till
Wieskamp
Nunge

That's DME's rep across all sports. They offer -- allegedly -- superior coaching and skill development, the proof of which lies in cupcake blowouts.

Nice work if you can get it.

They should have come in as walk ons and earned their scholarships
And it's not like this would be without precedent. Baer got one as a sophomore after he proved himself as a legit rotation player and he put Till on one despite him only being on the fringe on the rotation.

Some of their games are online but you have to search until you find the right DME team. I watched about 5 minutes of one of them earlier in the season and it is all around awful basketball. It would be like taking the top 4A team in the state and having them play the worst 1A team.

One of my AP Lang kids plays for a good regional soccer club (he's getting low D1 interest now). They played DME last fall, and his observation was "for a sports school, they're not that good."

Checked IMG’s roster and they have 6 players who’ve signed with good programs, two from Duke including the kid from Wisconsin who didn’t play.

They have several teams and think this was the "Post Grad" team that doesn't have those guys but still several guys headed to d1.
