    Intriguing and I hope we get him. Just for reasons others have already mentioned, I don't let myself get excited about prospects anymore UNTIL they commit. Just too many that go elsewhere. I'm not writing it off - just that time will tell. Odds are probably against us landing ANY prospect that ends up with lots of appealing offers. Competitive business to be sure.

    Here's an interview with the kid from earlier today with the World Herald. No mention of Iowa but says he wants to make a decision in 2-3 weeks so he can take summer classes. He grew up a Creighton fans and visited there today. His family also has a connection with Dana Altman.

    Rob is Fran pursuing this kid. In a recent interview with reporters Fran stated he had no plans to add to what he already has.

    Let’s hope he has a REALLY, REALLY, good reason for holding those scholarships.

    No way is Fran going to bring in another kid that is going to play Patrick's position. Follow along people.

    That would be like Kirk bringing in another OC to be a run game coordinator or something.

    I would love to see Fran bring in a true power forward. One that rebounds like a um, um a man possessed. Any out there this late in the game?

    Will Pemsl's body hold up?

    I would be ok with a Kreiner upgrade.

    Nunge is unproven at PF and he can't play 40 minutes.

    If he brought someone that is a good fit it would be okay, but then again, we have interest from a lot of great athletes for the next class. If we could add Xavier Foster, I think he alone would attract a couple of more highly rated ballers to join him in that class.

    In the podcast I posted earlier in this thread, he talks about being intrigued by Hawaii. The radio hosts were joking about getting a free trip there for an official visit, but the kid sounded genuinely interested.

    That said, he's not going to Hawaii.
