Last I heard on Wilkins...He was going to open it up. Didn't sound like Dad was going to let him go to ISU.
Daddy knows best. My wife is due in June, and right now I'm considering not letting my kid be an Iowa State fan in order to not put them through the treachers I've experiened as a fan in my short life.
At the moment, Wilkins is no longer considering Iowa St. His recruitment gets weirder and weirder by the day.
Everything I have been hearing says he is considering Iowa, Indiana, possibly Illinois St, and now Houston. He is no closer to committing than he was a month ago. He is visiting Houston this weekend (isn't there a former ISU asst coach who is there now? That would probably explain why they are suddenly a player). I would be shocked if his dad suddenly decided it would be ok for him to be that far away from their home in Gary, IN.
Indiana hasn't put a full-court press on him yet, but it has been thought for a while that if Crean shows him some love, he would commit. The problem is that Crean apparently views him as a backup option.
Wilkins visited Illinois St (where his dad was a star in the '70s) 2 weeks ago but didn't commit leading many to think they are now out of the picture. Bradley, where he originally committed and would have enrolled if the NCAA hadn't dragged their feet with his eligibility decision, is also thought to be out of the picture now.
My guess is that he ends up at Iowa or Houston. Fran seems to be going after him hard and there are a lot of Hawkeye fans at his JC who are in his ear.
