Is this the PG Iowa will recruit for 8 months and commit elsewhere? If history tells us anything, if Fran gets a PG he's offering him in the wave about a month before signing day

Checked out Waukee/Centennial tonight. Waukee lost, Sandfort played incredibly soft and couldn’t make open shots and Centennial killed Waukee inside. Sandfort’s freshman brother looked as good as he did. Devries dropped 36 and was a badass.

Lol at the position you have carved out of the measured never doubted a Fran recruit.

You are right except for those pesky 2014/2015 classes.
No I almost never comment ever. You’ll probably dig and find something but I don’t say anything bc no one ever fucking knows.

Well A) I think it’s a misconception that Wisconsin plays the Dick Bennett style still. They don’t. They play hard and they make you guard and conversely they guard the crap out of you too.

The lickliter style was an abomination for a myriad of reasons but number 1 more than anything else, was the recruiting was fucking abysmal. So to say we’ve tried that already isn’t really accurate.

I guess what I’m saying is iowa needs to own their backyard in recruiting and start playing tough and not like a bunch of pussies. I don’t think Fran can really do either of those at this point.
Nice take MessDawg!

He did not grow up rooting for any particular college basketball program. He cheered on whichever of the in-state schools were experiencing success at the time.

:confused:

He would be fine on a team filled with athlete's who can defend and penetrate, leaving him as a three point shooter. That's the only way he would work.

He belongs at Drake with DeVries kid, who is better imo.

If he is as good of a shooter as he is made out to be, sign him. To add with Toussaint, Perkins, Ulis, Fredrick? Yea, why not?

He is shooting 55% from the floor and 47% from three.

That doesn't always translate, but you don't pass up on anyone that can shoot in the modern game. They are far more valuable than slashers or athletes (not counting star players).

He has offers from Iowa, Minnesota and Utah already and will likely add more this spring. I don't think he is a player you can flippantly pass on, especially if he can shoot.
As i have mentioned, I have now seen him play a ton and I 100% take him if I am iowa. He is going to be more wing-oriented than the Murray boys. He will be surrounded by people that can penetrate and guys they can hit open threes are exactly what makes our offense awesome. I generally think Waukee kids are a little soft but I think he’s going to end up a really good player somewhere.

If there’s one thing this board is good at, it’s predicting the success of recruits/future Hawks.

If he can shoot you absolutely take him. Fans craved a slashing pg that could get to the rim, they get one, and everyone bitches about him. Shooting is much more important.

Don't lump me in with this shit. I'm not even close to the worse offender of this.

Also, you fucking wanted Lickliter to stick around for years longer. YEARS.
You’ve got some beautiful lickliter quotes too bro
