-MARTELL BAILEY 6'0 PG, Chicago(IL) Westinghouse Top 200 HS Bailey is part a a dynamo backcourt at Westinghouse with Cedrick Banks. He is a spark plug type, who is more effective at taking the ball to the hole than shooting. He is lightning quick. ISU is in touch, as Bailey is one of the better point guards left. Schools involved- UIC, Notre Dame, UTEP, UNLV, Rutgers, Loyola, ISU -CEDRICK BANKS 6'3 WG/PG, Chicago(IL) Westinghouse Top 30 HS Banks is one of the most talented players in the country, however, he has got to put academics in front of basketball. He's no sure shot to qualify, so many teams are reluctant to get involved. He has lead a minimally talented Westinghouse team to an AAU championship and a CPL title. Westinghouse(no players taller than 6'3) is one of the top 5 teams in the country. Schools involved- JUCOs, DePaul, ISU, Minn, UIC. ISU has a shot if they are willing to hang on for a qualifying score. -MAURICE SEARIGHT 6'2 PG, Orchard Lake(MI) St. Mary's Top 100 HS Searight is one of the most talented seniors left at this juncture, and ISU is keeping in touch just in case there is an NBA defection. He plays AAU ball for "The Family", and has played the nation's top PG, Marcus Taylor to a near draw a few times this season. Searight has some work to do to qualify, but if he does, ISU is very interested. Schools involved- ISU, Cincy, Michigan, many others. -JOHNNIE SELVIE 6'7 BF/WF, Southeastern(IA) CC Top 50 JC Selvie is a very athletic big man who can get it done offensively down low, but has the athleticism to guard the perimeter. He is a former teammate of Iowa signee Rob Griffin, and a target of the Hawks. Schools involved- Iowa, ISU, TCU, Kansas State, Illinois-Chicago -JASON EDWIN 6'6 WF, Warsaw(IL) High Top 125 HS Photo Edwin has received mixed reviews from coaches and analysts. Bob Gibbons likes him enough to name him the #49 senior. He is a native of the Virgin Islands, and has been declared ineligible to play in Illinois because of his non-resident status. Rumor has it that he may open enroll to nearby Keokuk(IA) High to play basketball. He plays all five positions for his high school team. Schools involved- Iowa leads ISU, Penn State, Purdue, and several others.12-5-99... SIGNED WITH SAINT LOUIS -JOHNNIE GILBERT 6'7 BF, Minneapolis(MN) John Henry Top 150 HS Gilbert has the body to play down low in any conference in America, but some observers question his basketball skills. Others absolutely love his game, many college coaches included. ISU may push hard for Gilbert if some of their original targets go elsewhere. He is an AAU teammate of Jake Sullivan and Andy Skogland. Schools involved- ISU, Marquette, Minnesota, Ohio State, and others.9-14-99...HEADED TO OU -MATT SHIRLEY 6'8 WF/BF, Meriden(KS) High Top 300 HS ISU's most powerful recruiting tool with Matt Shirley also happens to be an integral part of the team, his brother Paul. ISU has a great chance to land Shirley, who not surprisingly is an outstanding student. Matt is a combo forward who can light it up from long range, but has a nice array of post moves to go along with that. Schools involved- ISU leads KSU and others. -BRANDON CRUMP 6'10 BF/C, Houston(TX) Klein Top 150 HS Crump is 6'10, but weighs a mere 190 lbs. If he hopes to play big time college ball, he'll need to put on some weight. He is a sleeper, but has outstanding athleticism. He can run the floor with the best of the guards. He averaged 19 points and 7 rebounds last season. He is academically qualified. Schools involved- Baylor and ISU lead KSU, TAMU, Fresno St., Oregon State, Vandy, and many more.10-13-99...ISU never showed enough interest to merit a visit.12-5-99...SIGNED WITH TENNESSEE -SCOTT MERRITT 6'10 BF/C, Milwaukee(WI) Wauwatosa East Top 100 HS Merritt proved to be a big time recruit at The Speice Tournament held for top underclassmen during May. He held his own against some tough forwards. He has an offensive game to die for with a sweet little turnaround "J" from the block. He should be a fairly highly rated prospect. Schools involved- Northwestern, Ohio State, ISU, Marquette, West Virginia, others.8-6-99...Merritt has cut his list to 6; Marquette, Northwestern, West Virginia, ISU, Ohio State, and Tennesse. He is apparently exicited about the possibility of joining a highly rated incoming class at ISU which now includes Ernest Brown, because ISU had all but dropped off of his radar screen just weeks ago.9-14-99...VERBALLED TO MARQUETTE -TERRY SANDERS 6'8 WF, Chatham(VA) Hargrave Military Academy Top 150 HS Photo Sanders is actually a product of Milwaukee's Vincent High which last year produced superstar Marshall Williams. He chose to attend Hargrave because he wanted to play a higher level of Division I ball. He averaged 13 points and 8 rebounds last year, but would have had much better stats had he not played on the same team with Williams. He is very athletic and could play either forward position because of his size. He has had an outstanding summer, and some big-time schools are now trying to get involved. He plans to sign this fall. Schools involved- Virginia, Cincy, Rutgers, Marquette, ISU, Michigan, North Carolina State. There is no leader.10-13-99...HEADED TO MARQUETTE -JARED JEFFRIES 6'9 WF/BF, Bloomington(IN) North Top 10 HS Photo Jeffries is perhaps the most complete forward in the class of 2000. He is a solid top 10 prospect who is getting interest from some top schools. Offensively, Jeffries has shown some strong post moves against some top forwards in the class. He's an asset defensively also, as he's a great shot blocker. Schools involved- UCONN, Mizzou, ISU, Iowa, UNC, UK, Ohio State, Michigan State, and Indiana. 10-13-99...Jeffries final four are Indiana, Duke, FSU, and USC. 11-6-99...COMMITTED TO INDIANA -MAURICIO BRANWELL 6'8 BF, Washington(DC) Archbishop Carroll Top 200 HS Branwell is a bit of a sleeper, but a strong player nonetheless. He was honorable mention All-DC in his junior season. Look for interest on this defensive stopper to pick up in his senior season. Scouts haven't had much of a chance to see him because of an injury last summer. With increased visibility, I believe his ranking should skyrocket. Schools involved-Georgetown, George Washington, ISU, NCSU -ELLIS MYLES 6'7 WF/BF, Compton(CA) High Top 150 HS Photo Myles is truly a power forward, but has worked hard as of late to develop a consistent three point shot. It would be nice to get a recruiting pipeline going to Compton, CA, as they produce several high DI players per year. Schools involved- Georgia, Georgia Tech, ISU, USC, New Mexico, Wyoming, Oregon State, Miami.8-18-99...ISU has stopped recruiting Myles.3-9-00...In a strange twist of fate, ISU has resumed recruiting Myles, and according to Dave Telep, have offered a grant. I assume this means Ernest Brown is going pro. The other schools Myles is looking at are Southern Cal(offer), Oregon State(offer), and possibly UCONN. Many other schools had been interested.3-19-00...Myles says he is still interested in ISU, USC, UCONN, Alabama, and to a lesser extent, Wyoming and Oregon State. -ADAM BOONE 6'2 PG/WG, Minnetonka(MN) High Top 50 HS Photo If nothing else, Adam Boone could help raise the team GPA. This straight "A" student is also a stealthy gunner from long range. He is also quick enough to run the point in college. Adam is a member of the Howard Pulley Panthers AAU squad along with fellow ISU recruit Jake Sullivan. He is planning on making an unofficial visit to ISU this summer with Jake. Schools involved- Northwestern, Minnesota, ISU, Iowa, Wisconsin, Kansas State, Texas A&M, and others.
Not an ISU target.12-5-99...SIGNED WITH UNC -CORY HIGHTOWER 6'8 WG, Indian Hills CC (via Durham, NC) Top 3 JC Photo Hightower is one of the better offensive players in the JUCO ranks, but isn't on top of his game defensively. He needs to add some weight, and improve his game defensively in order to make a major impact on the Division I level. There is no question that every coach drools over the offensive skills this kid has. At 6'8, he towers over everyone else in the backcourt. Cory isn't much of a student either, so he might end up in the NBA a little early. Schools involved- ISU, Michigan, NBA, others.10-13-99...Hightower is NBA-bound in my opinion.12-5-99...SIGNED WITH TCU -LUKE DWYER 6'6 WG, Topeka(KS) West Top 200 HS Dwyer is the star of the Team Kansas AAU team. He is a great penetrater offensively, and could grow into a forward. He's a very streaky shooter from downtown. His biggest asset might be his size. Schools involved- ISU, KU, Texas Tech, Notre Dame -TREVOR SIMMONS 6'7 WF, Maple Valley(IA) High Top 300 HS Simmons is the one Iowa player that Larry Eustachy is most interested in. He has had a very good summer with Martin Bros. AAU basketball team as one of the better players. Schools involved- ISU, Illinois State, and numerous small DI schools. -RYAN SHRIVER 6'8 BF, Salina(KS) South Top 200 HS Shriver is a very solid rebounder who has done nothing but improve his standing over the summer. His sister Alyssa plays for the ISU women's team. Schools involved- KSU, ISU, and many others.8-3-99... Shriver's solid summer has cemented him in as the top player in Kansas. ISU leads and has offered.11-6-99...ISU hasn't been in contact for quite some time. HEADED TO WESTERN ILLINOIS -JAY ANDERSON 6'9 BF/C, Faribault(MN) High Top 300 HS Anderson's best asset is his ability to finish in the lane. He has soft hands and an even softer touch. Much like current Cyclone Paul Shirley. ISU has a great chance to land Anderson if they choose. He has a 3.4 GPA and scored a 21 on his ACT. Schools involved- ISU, San Jose State, Minnesota, KSU, UNC-Wilmington, Evansville, UNI, Oregon 12-5-99...HEADED TO OREGON -DAVID ROTTINGHAUS 6'5 WF, Charles City(IA) High Top 300 HS Photo Rottinghaus is probably the second best junior in the state to West's Glenn Worley. He is a perimeter player despite his size, and averages over 20 points a game. Rottinghaus is the second leading scorer for the Martin Brothers AAU team. Schools involved- ISU, Iowa, Arizona State, Kansas State, Notre Dame.12-5-99...SIGNED WITH WYOMING -JEFF CARLSON 6'5 WG, Sioux City(IA) East Top 400 HS Photo Carlson is a big guard prospect who shoots the long ball extremely well(over 40%). He single handedly brought East a top 10 ranking. UNI is the biggest player in his recruitment. Schools involved- UNI, ISU, Iowa, Wyoming, SMS -BRETT WATSON 6'5 WF, Elk-Horn Kimballton(IA) High Top 400 HS Photo Watson's stats seem to be a bit inflated because of the league he plays in, but 33 points a game is still something to brag about. He led his team to a 22-2 record this season. ISU has been in touch. Schools involved- ISU, UNI, Iowa, Drake, Creighton, Navy -TODD TOWNSEND 6'6 WF, Chicago(IL) Morgan Park Top 400 HS Townsend is a prototypical swingman for the college game. He is receiving some mid-major interest. Schools involved- ISU, Iowa, Illinois, Illinois St., DePaul, Northwestern -BARRY THOMPSON 6'6 WF, Winchendon(MA) Prep Top 150 HS Photo Thompson plays both forward positions for his high school team, but small forward will likely be his position in college. He has a good perimeter game to go along with some power. Schools involved-ISU, Wisconsin, Marquette, Bradley, Indiana State.8-17-99...Thompson has transferred to Winchendon Prep in Massachusetts to get his academics in order. It should also help to increase his visibility at the national level. At this point, ISU is very involved, and has offered a scholarship. His revised schools list is now ISU, UMASS, and Marquette leading OU and Tennessee.
-JARED REINER 6'11 C, Tripp(SD) Tripp-Delmont High Top 200 HS Photo Reiner is a small town South Dakota kid with big time skills. Much of the Big 12 is after this talented post player. Schools involved- Minnesota, ISU, Wisconsin, Nebraska, Iowa, many others. -JON GODFREAD 6'11 C, Grand Forks(ND) Red River High Top 400 HS Godfread is a teammate of of Jared Reiner on the AAU Dakota Schoolers. He is a bit of an unknown quantity, as he hasn't developed yet. He is thought of as a project. After this summer we will know how good he can be. Schools involved-Clemson, ISU, N.C. State, Iowa, Wake Forest, Northwestern, Kansas State, Texas, Florida, Utah, Oregon, and Creighton. -JONATHON WOODS 6'7 BF, Harvey(IL) Thornton Top 300 HS Jonathon Woods is an outstanding rebounder for a high school player. He would fit into Coach Eustachy's style of play very nicely. He is a hard worker in the lane. Schools involved- DePaul, Cincinnati, ISU, Bradley, Wisconsin, Illinois State, USC, Dayton, Loyola of Chicago 6-16-99...Woods is likely headed the JUCO route. -JABBAR WILLIAMS 6'9 BF, Cheyney(PA) Westchester Top 300 HS Williams is a great athlete, no doubt about it. In fact, he supposedly has a 35+ inch vertical jump. There are big questions surrounding Williams academics however. He will likely need another year of prep school to play Division I ball. -BRYAN BEDFORD 6'4 WF, Racine(WI) Case Top 300 HS Bedford is a solid inside scorer for his size, but needs to work on his outside shot. He averaged nearly 15 points a game as a junior, and is playing this summer as a part of the Bray Center AAU team. Schools involved-Wisconsin, Marquette, Harvard, ISU, Minnesota, Auburn, Creighton, and many others. -RANDY HOLBROOK 6'8 BF, Kirkwood(MO) High Top 300 HS Photo Holbrook is more of a project. He has all of the athletic skills, but needs to become more of a basketball player instead of an athlete. He is being chased by several quality schools. Schools involved-Notre Dame, Virginia Tech, Oklahoma, Mizzou, Kansas State, Kentucky, ISU, and others -TERRANCE CRAWFORD 6'5 WG/WF, Oklahoma City(OK) Bishop McGuinness Top 100 HS Crawford is a tall, rangy perimeter player who can bury the three ball. ISU has expressed some interest, but Crawford will be tough to get away from Oklahoma and OSU. He is a top recruiting target for both schools. Schools involved- OU, OSU, ISU, and others
