    Apparently we just offered RJ Taylor. A PG from Midland, Michigan. He recently visited Michigan St.
    If you squint, you see a poor man's AJ Green.

      Just watched his sophomore season highlights on YouTube and if you watch the entire video you'll see that he features a lot of nifty passing ability with some shifty change of direction dribbling. He does not remind me of AJ in any way. His game is similar to Steve Nash.
      When paired with athletic bigs this type of player can be a game changer but our roster does not typically boast above the rim types. I doubt he chooses UNI.

        He creates space with footwork and senses defensive pressure on his hip. REALLY nice player but sadly you're right. He's going to blow up past us.

          The extra year for everybody makes it so hard to figure out what you need in this class. I figure we have to have a big even if Phyfe is coming back for his 6th.

            This is and has been the most pressing need. Maybe Henry will make giant leaps in development but even so, we would benefit by having a big that’s at least Phyfe’s height and weight. That may be asking for too much. Maybe we will really embrace small ball? Who knows?

              I have added all the 2023 prospects from Iowa that we have been in contact with. There are a lot. Matthew Bain from the register does a good job keeping up on the high school talent in the state. So far the list below (in order of ranking within the state per Matthew Bain) is who we have at least had some interest in as recently as this month:

              Pryce Sandfort - 6'6" (Waukee Northwest)

              Drew Kingery - 6'5" (Indianola)

              Blaise Porter - 6'0" (New London)

              Dallas Bear - 6'7" (Cedar Falls)

              Daniel Tobiloba - 7'0" (Grand View Christian)

              Chase Henderson - 6'0" (Des Moines Hoover)

              Brayson Laube - 6'2" (Marion)

              Elijah Vos - 6'5" (Des Moines Hoover)

              Caden Kirkman - 6'8" (Wilton)

              Kenzie Reed - 5'10" (Cedar Rapids Kennedy)

                Hopefully we have a shot at Bear, I think he has Mid Major star written all over him. Laube’s sister plays for the panthers.

                  The Register made it sound realistic that he’ll sign with a mid major team. It also sounded like Sandfort will be offered by higher profile schools, and most likely the same with Kingery and Porter.

                    Porter could run into similar problems as Born with his height. That would obviously benefit us mid majors.

                      I absolutely love Porter's game. He's an all-league guard in the Valley.

                            We were at an open gym watching Nasir Whitlock, a guard from DeLaSalle in Minnesota. Michigan, Princeton, and DePaul among others were also there watching.
