Maybe some of you don't follow recruiting that closely but Harrison Barnes is an absolute stud who may be ranked in the top 50 in the nation in his class. I see no difference between a Free Lucca chant and a Harrison Barnes chant.
I happen to follow recruiting very closely and trust me, chants like that really make recruits feel special. I really think all the love Cyclone Alley gave Lucca helped him to decide to stay at ISU rather than leaving and going back home to Germany. The same can happen with Barnes.
Like someone else said, I'm not asking for a chant during the game but during a timeout when nothing else is going on would do nothing but help coach Mac bring in a top 50 recruit who is attending 95% of our games.
I thought Cyclone Alley was fantastic today as was the rest of the crowd. I just think we need to learn how to help our coaches get these studs to come to ISU.
I've been following recruiting closer since we offered Harrison last summer. I do understand not wanting to do the chants because he is a sophomore and not a senior, BUT I would also hate to one day read an update that he was visiting another program and THEY were chanting his name on a single visit when he's been with us most of the season.
