My source is extremely cautious as to say who we are with good standing with recruits who may make a comittment. I remember when I asked him about various recruits and possible transfers we might be after... (again this was roughly three months ago), he said watch closely with Dorian Finney-Smith. That coach Corn and Hoiberg really liked this kids game. That was the very same night he announced his intentions to transfer from Virginia Tech. He also said that Matt Thomas was a definate "solid in", stating it is just a matter of when he makes his pledge. Then during the same conversation said, "We are real high on Washington, and that Washington was excited about the possibility of being teammates with Niang." Washington also mentioned that he was impressed with the coaching staff. My source did mention that Iowa State was trying hard to reel in Jared Uthoff from Wisconsin. Yeah..that didn't happen. When asked about Terrance Samuel. He said, " initially Fred and coach Matt A. were hard after him, but that he wanted to stay on the east coast. When I asked about Vaughn. He said Fred was after him hard, but 50/50. I asked him about Abu bc he was a brand new recruit we were after at the time. He said, "yeah he is a solid player, but I don't believe we have much of a shot."
Cool, thanks. No need to apologize, I just haven't been on here much in the last few weeks and wasn't sure if I missed something. I don't expect anything from him until March-April next year; kid's going to get plenty of attention and lots of pressure.
I would imagine if he is down to 6 schools and taking all his officials visits by the end of October he would want to make his decision before his senior year of basketball starts. I'm guessing his decision will be made sometime in November.
Wow, what are they selling down there? I guess they really came on late in the season last year but this is kinda shocking...

If you ask the basketball analysts outside the state of Iowa I think you would be surprised to hear their responses. Iowa was pegged as a preseason top 5 team by one ESPN analyst and is ranked in the vast, vast majority of preseason top 25 polls
