No question Fred is building this team like an NBA exec would...get the talent in the door and watch them win ball games. All I keep thinking is how big next year is. I don't think people realize how exciting it is going to be when OUR team starts really knocking the hell out of good teams...and we all sit around on selection Sunday wondering where we are going. If this all happens I can't imagine how you would even stop Freddy from establishing himself as one of the premier guys in the league. NBA executive experience PLUS proven ability to get to the tourny....that's deadly.
Another thing I find interesting about Clyburn's visit is that, besides being previously recruited by us, he was a high school teammate of Dominque Buckley as well as a JUCO teammate of Phillips. He should know more than enough about Iowa State already. If he was even moderately close to those guys, this would be more of a negotiating meeting than exploratory.
He reminds me of CU's wing who destroyed us in the tournament game. Higgins?? Who was the last dominant wing player Iowa State has had?
