South Sioux City
Plays with Iowa Stars
Looks like he has a couple all tournament team accolades.
#10 Mike Gesell
Mike is a prolific scorer who not only has excellent three point range, but can get to the basket as well. His athleticism shows
true on both offense as well as on the defensive end. Mike set the 7th grade high jump record at his school with a leap of 5’7".
He started his 8th grade season with jumps of 6'2" & 6'4". Mike’s favorite NBA player is Dwayne Wade. Mike’s hobbies include
wakeboarding and basketball. Mike made the All-tournament team at the Wildcat Showdown, Bartlett (Chicago) IL. Jan 12, 08
and Iowa AAU All Tournament Team 2/24/08. He wants to play in the NBA.
I do not know about you guys, but I am not worried about visitors. I just want us to Smoke the Huskers big time irregardless of who is watching. It is time to make up for that overtime loss.
Chris Colvin, 6-foot-3, Point Guard, Whitney Young.
Colvin has always made a strong case to figure as the state’s top guard. He’s extremely athletic with great quickness, speed, leaping ability, and explosiveness. It’s tough for any defender to guard him one-on-one as he can score or use his high level playmaking skills to get easy baskets. He has greatly improved the consistency on his 3-point shot which makes him, at the least, a legitimite four-star player. He has a great chance as a future high major point guard.
By the way, another player on Colvin's team is Marcus Jordan, 6-foot-3, Combo Guard.
Whether he was talented or not, Marcus Jordan was sure to have the hype as he entered high school. Fortunately, he has done more than lived up to his billing as he has surpassed the label of, what most thought him to be, a mid major guard. The 6′3″ power guard has the tools to play the point and the “2″. He can consistently beat you from the outside, uses both hands well, has a very high IQ, and can definitely get to the rack and create. He’s very strong, plays with great poise, defends well, and is a great perimeter rebounder. He’s earned the label of a high major prospect over the course of the spring and early summer.
***************************************************************************** Getting back to Colvin, he will be taking an official visit to Iowa State this weekend and it appears that his "list" of schools has changed for about the millionth time. Other schools now being mentionedinclude Marquette, UAB, Providence and Washington State. As we have stated repeatedly we don't care what has been reported in other circles--we think this one is still a long ways from being over.
He looks like Clark... in raw looks, i have no idea what his game looks like.
Oh great! another person interested in Marquette. how many could we lose to them.
And Providence, going against Keno, but it'll be interesting to see how it all works out.
It seems as though Coach D.Rob is really able to get Chicagoland recruits to look our way. That is something that has really been lacking at ISU and that goes back decades. I'd like to see us make some deep paths into Chi town. Talent is overflowing in Chicago and we need a piece.
