Default Bennett Koch

Are we going to go after the third Koch brother, I saw him at the game last night and he has really shot up he is now 6'6" and did a little research and he is the only Sophomore on his varsity team.

I can't imagine he doesn't end up here as a 4 for 5 at minimum...

Or maybe he would feel more comfortable playing at a different school or closer to home... etc

I would hope that there has been at least an implied offer out to him for a little while now. Would be cool to bring him in and then maybe land someone big on the inside, maybe from Minnesota....

I'm sure we will have to ask Mac if it would be OK for us to recruit him.

I did hear that the Creighton AD told Brian Koch that if his Men's basketball job opens up again he will be his first call.

Only if Gordy Bohannon does not take it first.

Adam has been playing D-League ball lately hasn't he? The season might be over (Go Energy) but it's not like he's way out of basketball shape.

I know he is the brother of two Panthers, but UNI should be nowhere near offering Bennett Koch a scholarship.

Not at the moment at least. But that's not up to us to decide. Ben and Co. have done a pretty good job with the eldest two. This kid still has two more years of high school ball to go, when did we offer Adam and Jake?

It'll be interesting to see how Bennett transforms and takes on the situations he's given, and if it'll lend him to be a decent recruit.

p.s. Go Energy.

To answer the question, I believe Jake was offered at Big Man Camp (or team camp) between his junior and senior year of HS. Adam was offered in between his junior/senior year (actually in July I believe). Adam's scholy offer was pulled b/c Roman Gentry committed to UNI. Then, Roman and UNI split ways and Adam was re-offered in early Fall-ish.

As for Bennett, he's in the 2013 class which is the primary target now for UNI basketball. All scholys are full for 2012 and there will be a few scholys available for the class that graduates Jake Koch, AJ, Sonnen, and Pehl. So far, Matt Thomas and Carson Shanks are the only offers on the table. Ironically, I believe KG was the lead recruiter for both (I think). You would always see KG talking with Carson's dad at the games afterward.

I really hope that this isn't a deal breaker.

Adam played for Bakersfield in the D-League after returning from Europe.

Iowa won the D-League Championship this season.

Curtis Stinson was the season MVP, although he will be moving on next year as NBDL rules only allow two consecutive years with the same team.

I still say that Bennett should be seriously considered for one of the open scholly's in his class. By all accounts he is similar to Adam and Jake but is actually taller than they were at his age-which may account for his lower stats as he getting used to his body. If nothing else, wee know the type of character that the Koch boys have had on our team and we can always make use of that.

I couldn't agree more the Koch family is a great representative of what we should look for at UNI

Hasn't Stinson been on the Energy for the past 3 years? Is the 2 year rule something new?

Honestly, at times, I thought Stinson was better than Tinsley. Tinsley just had a better supporting cast.

You know, I'm not entirely sure. I know I've heard it somewhere from someone but I can't remember who or when it was. The only thing I could find was that NBA teams can only assign first or second-year players to their affiliates...

Perhaps it's two consecutive years, as Stinson has signed with a team in the Philippines.

Loved Stinson with the energy but couldn't stand him as in college. He was always talking trash and acting cocky and arrogant. He grew up a lot in the D-league and became a real leader with great IQ and lost the trashy part of his game..in my opinion

Ya, I am aware of the rule for NBA teams assigning to dleague but not the two years on same team. Pretty sure their coach said he was their best player the last 3 years. Could be wrong though

You're correct. NBA teams can only assign a player for their rookie or second year.

A D-League player not on assignment can stay with the same team as long as he wants.

This is awesome. I'm so excited to have Bennett on verbal this early in the game... from what we've seen from his brothers, I think he'll be a great asset for us in the future.

Moose wants me to mention that we need to get another tall player from this class. I really think Bennett could be the best of brothers as well as the biggest, it is just taking him some time to grow into his body.

Completely agree. I think we should all be confident that BK will develop into his body and become as good of a player, if not better than his brothers and I think we all know that says a lot. And if he isn't as good as AK and JK then at least we were able to keep the Koch family around for a few more years.
