    I think it depends. At this point I'm going to assume JW is a 4 year player at Iowa based on what I've seen. He has all the potential in the world, he just needs to put it together. Most college players dont fully hit their stride until their upper classmen years.

    He's probably on mine. He's on yours. Not much of a difference. I'd like all of my guys to be at Iowa for the full number of years. Probably shouldn't have written "but" he needs to stay, it's more of a preference. It's a soft criteria for my mountain.

    Well Bohannon already owned the school record in 3 pointers before this season even began. He needs 108 assists next year to own that school record as well. Although the assist record next year could get interesting as Connor has been taking more of a role at the PG position.

    Then you have the Chris Street missed free throw thing, the shoe thing, the late game clutch dramatics, the all freshman team...tons and tons of intangibles.

    I hope you and PC are right, I’m not counting on it though.

    I’d also love to see this “putting all together” as well. Kid averages 16.6 PPG in the toughest conference in America this year.

    Uthoff is a lock. White as well. Marble/Jok both 1st team all big ten players, but Jok didn't lead his team to the NCAA tournament which kinda dings below Marble IMO. Jok was a weird situation in which it was him and a bunch of freshman for the most part

    If he sticks it out like Uthoff, he could be Uthoff (or better).

    Connor doesn’t play much of if any PG these days. He does get assists though still playing the 3 and 4 spot.

    With Toussaint, Bohannon coming back next year, and Ulis coming in I doubt Connor plays much PG the rest of his career.

    I think that’s a good thing though I think Connor moving off the ball was a good thing for both Iowa and Connor. He can still make “PG plays” within the offense he’s just better suited off the ball defensively.

    I'm in no way predicting Wieskamp will stay 4 years. My post was more hoping than predicting lol. If next year is our big year, we almost want Wieskamp to have such a big year it's a no brainer he goes.

    I picked Him because I can't recall the last Hawk to shoot the 3 ball like him. I was just thinking last week when JW had guys up in his face and couldn't get a shot off that Jbo would just step back two feet and shoot it. He has been the most clutch shooter at end of games of the Fran era as well.
