Yeah he must not be that good if he had offers from Pitt and Marquette out of high school and then has interest from Pitt, Memphis, USC and St Marys since he left Marshall...but then again Fred isn't a very good judge of talent probably just saw the PPG and offered him a visit
Why does everyone want this kid? 3star outa HS, kicked off (or asked not to return) of Marshall, missed his first year because of grades (and then managed to graduate easily). Played poor teams and when played decent teams, got killed. cant shoot FT, cant shoot 3's, poor fg%. Wears a high number (#50) as a guard which makes me think that he might be crazy.
Does everyone just go crazy over a high PPG average?
He has three years of collegiate PT and you are worried about his star rating coming out of high school.
Bubu back to non scholly or someone not eligible from our Juco class. Just my speculation.
And so it begins :)

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
I'd take him. There is need, of course. But it should help is retain our reputation as "Transfer U". When a kid thinks of transferring, it would nice to continue to be an "automatic name" in the list of schools being considered.
