    Isn't he at Blue Valley in the KC area? Agree with the P5 assessment, though. They've had some decent seasons, even though they'll be breaking in a new coach.
    Give us a yell, HO! The purple and the gold
    Victory for U-N-I!

    Find out what the other team wants to do, then take it away from them.

      Yep. Overland Park, KS.

      Yea, no idea where he will go and probably not here but I wouldn't think an Ole Miss offer completely ruins our chances.

        • I'll be surprised if we add anybody else this offseason. Just a guess, I just think we'll want to have a ride open for next year.

            That's just the way some kids think though. Hell, Maishe Dailey originally committed to arguably the worst P5 in the country, because he just wanted to play in the Big Ten.

            • Woops, confused him with Goldman (from AR) but still have to think those who haven't committed yet are waiting for higher profile offers.
              The SEC (in comparison to UNI) is a higher end offer to most outsiders, unfortunately.

                Outsider in terms of general schmuck who catches a handful of games on ESPN during a year.

                Outside of a few who are strictly P5 chasers - and those exist, and maybe Parker is one...I have no idea - kids who are being recruited understand that the difference between most SEC teams and many "mid-majors" is in name only.

                    • Kids are attracted to playing against higher level competition more often and being on TV more often and playing in front of larger fan bases, and only needing to go .500 in conference play to make the big dance, etc. We'd love to think that some mid majors compete against the P5 conf schools for recruits, and some do but the reality is that most don't and those that do still lose out more often than not.
                      I hope we still get Braun (or Sy) but the Ole Miss offer is a serious threat, make no mistake about it.

                        He's got some decent film but mostly against low level competition. I didn't see any video of him on the AAU circuit, anybody else find any of that?

                        • What do you know about Matthew Bain, the author of the articles on recruiting in the DM Register? Who is he?

                          I find it interesting that the same person is writing about Iowa and Iowa State. Might he have forthcoming articles about UNI and Drake? I like the idea of somebody covering recruitment by state schools without being embedded with a particular team.

                              Bain's the guy who ranked Patrick McCaffrey as the #2 recruit from Iowa in the 2019 class. Lost credibility with me when I saw that.

                                Carton has a ton of good offers already and is highly rated. I think it'd definitely debatable.
