You know, if there’s one thing that iowa needs fewer of, it’s 4* top 100 instate players that grew up ISU fans.

So you can't point out a specific post then.

I don't think it's a secret that Fran doesn't exactly develop or emphasize defensive skills as well as offense. If a player comes in with average to below average defensive skills, there's a good chance they won't get better. So it may help to get players (of any color) who come in as plus defenders.

there is absolutely zero reason to think that Sandfort sucks at defense other than that he is tall and white. You have never even seen him play.

Actually, yes I have seen Pryce play but nice try. And, I never said he sucks. I said I thinnk he will struggle at the BIG level.

Are you related to him or something?

I watched a 6’3 Mexican kid score 20 on him, getting to the basket at will.

no but he is Barta’s cousin

I was just trying to gauge if halo knowing more than most national recruiting analysts is a less or more absurd situation than halo knowing more than the president and governor.

Also, I am shocked that a skinny high school junior that’s grown 6 inches in 2 years and is playing the entire game is not a defensive stopper

Hopefully he can come of age at UNI.

You'd think a guy with those accolades (4 star, Iowa State fan) would have a few more offers.

We have a poster that has seen a decent number of Mexican penuses. I wonder if he’s seen enough Puerto Rican ones to notice if there is any difference.

Looks like the staff is going to continue to expand their recruiting relationship with Midwest Prospect Academy, the grassroots program Owen Freeman plays for.

In the past few weeks the staff has watched 2023 prospects Ty Pence and Brock Harding from the program. Pence is a Top 5 junior in Illinois and Harding is an emerging PG prospect from Moline.

Those all sound like crackers, so I guess it would make sense if Fran is growing the relationship. Hope one of them can play some D

From what Kakert has said, Harding is the type of prospect that once he gets one high major offer he’s going to get a lot of high major offers.

To me he looks fucking tiny.

Bowen Born thinks this guy is small.
