I was hoping Iowa would wait to extend a scholarship offer, this really worries me. It's close to his home and they have wide open PT. I don't think ISU's future really hinges on getting him, but it'd be nice to set a precident of getting the best kids out of Iowa.
The thing that sux for ISU's chances is that weve just brought in 4 guards this year and already have another PG committed for the same year as Gibbs. Is he good friends with Gatens from IC that already committed to Iowa? im sure Liksnatcher will sell him on the idea of playing time right away at Iowa.
Yeah, I'm not sure if it's a fair comparison when the kid would be assured of playing time right away for Iowa. I'd love for him to be a Cyclone but am not going to buy that Lickliter is a better recruiter because he won a "head-to-head" recruiting battle.
I don't think the kid is like Stinnett. Maybe he thinks he can win playing time instead of just having it handed to him. Also why would a kid be dumb enought to think that just because he got playing time when he was a freshman that he would never have to compete for that job. Everyone get's recruited over top of. Gibbs would have just as good of shot as a Cyclone then he would a Hawkeye.
Personally, I would think with Lickliter being new and an "outsider", we would have an advantage with Coach Mac. This assuming that all other things are equal (meaning he isn't a huge clone or hawks fan).
