- 2017 point guard Ishmael El-Amin was very impressive for Howard Pulley 15U. Coach Kill would say he’s “lightning in a bottle.” He’s very fast, an excellent ball handler, and finished near the hoop. He’s very small. A Howard Pulley coach I talked with was very complimentary of him, and said that of the point guards at Pulley now (Jarvis Johnson and Brad Davison are the two big ones), he thinks that El-Amin will be the best. “Ish” has a lot Dre Mathieu in him.

Will be interesting to see if he can maintain that ranking. Doubtful. Hopefully it doesn't affect the stormers pipeline to CF.

Connor wasn't able to retain that ranking very long. ESPN released an updated top 25 of the class and he is no longer on it. He is considered N/R on ESPN now.

Im sorry but rankings mean jack. I don't care if a kid is a 5 star or a 1 star. I know there are some blue chippers out there who think rankings mean something. To rank a kid as a freshman/sophomore in high school is just stupid. Half of those kids will either reach their potential or bust (wasn't Peter Jok ranked like #1 when he was a freshman?) Now look at him, can barely stay out of legal trouble.

Im sorry but UNI beat KU (who had 7-9 Blue Chippers) with a team of average recruits. Rankings don't mean crap. UNI hangs in with Iowa & ISU (who both get decent recruits). UNI has proven that rankings mean jack crap and that no matter what if you work hard, you can beat anyone.

Hard work beats talent, when talent doesn't work hard. Always liked that quote!

Austin's sister is on the swim & dive team for UNI. I'd say there's a good shot that we get this kid.

Steve was a good player, and good guy. He was a good athlete, and had some serious "hops". Overall, a very good compliment to Reese down low. If his son has some of the same traits, then he'll more of a Buss like player than Jason Reese, Gruber, etc.

But he's from "small town Iowa". So, obviously, he is terrible.

Austin is a big kid, not just tall, but big bodied, in all honesty he will probably get some looks for football as well.

Max Preps lists him as 6'6", Barnstormers at 6'8", another cite had him 6'9". From the twitter pic, it looks like he's got at least 4-5 inches on Coach Jake as a HS Sophomore. Which puts him in that 6'6" -6'7" range. Dad was/is 6'9"-6'10"

He wasn't a 6'2 guard, and was a pretty athletic player. My issue is mostly with 6 footish small town guards who dominate their small town competition and then get to the MVC level and are by and large overmatched. You'll note I haven't said a whole lot of negatives towards guys like Grant Stout.

Nothing wrong with small school players, as long as they have MVC level ability and bring some value add.

I would have said that as well watching him last year, but he looks thinner now, in the picture with Jake. Quite different from how I remember him at the state tournament last year.

The new info on King reminds me of another 2017 kid.

We are nearing one year of UNI offering Austin Phyfe. I'm starting to get nervous that he won't end up here. I've been saying for years (literally), that UNI tends to move on after guys have scholarship offers for one year. You've seen it with guys like Carson Shanks, Estan Tyler, Kale Abrahamson, and several others. The post closer to the top of this page says UNI offered Sept 29th. That's two weeks from now. Let's hope we see Austin realize that UNI is a good fit and one where his family has seen good success (father and sister).

Phyfe is one I've been nervous about. Waverly is the biggest Hawk town this side of Iowa City and I'm worried he ends up at Iowa, even though he's a great fit here.

Saw a couple of twitter updates from Ryan James who writes for the Minnesota rivals.

Looks like we are showing continued interest in Goanar Mar although I know he is getting some more interest/offers from power 5 schools now.

Also, two more Minnesota names I haven't seen seen before in Trae Berhow and Gabe Kalscheur we appear to be interested in.

Really expecting Phyfe to commit to UNI. Purple runs deep in that family.
