We currently have three offers out there to fill two, possibly three spots. I think we'll keep this offer open for a bit longer than normal.

Rarely will UNI pull an offer (usually it's just that the offer got accepted by someone else...which most likely happened with Jordan Bohannon once McCloud committed). However, until now, Phyfe has been the only center that UNI has offered in 2017. It's coming up on one year which is typically when the staff seems to move on (from what has been documented historically). The offer will most likely stand until it's taken by another post player, but I would imagine you'll start seeing more offers start coming out to post players soon because you just can't wait all day long. At this point, you know the program, you know what the scholarship matrix looks like, and you either like the fit or you don't. That's what it seems like with UNI historically at the one year mark. Plenty have passed up on that opportunity only to end up elsewhere (typically they transfer later) while UNI finds guys who want to be here and have low turnover/transfer rates. I hope a local kid like Phyfe comes to UNI and thrives.

That part. It's not like Phfyfe doesn't understand what the program, the city, the staff, etc... are like. Everyone is well aware of the connections and how well he knows/should know where and how he fits. If after this long of having an offer, with all he already knows, there's reason to believe he isn't going to be in purple

Bet it's because IOWA's chirping in this kids ear. For some reason Fran has been going after a lot of in-state kids lately. Seems UNI offers a kid and their lurking in the shadows, or maybe my tin foil hat is broken.

Phfyfe hopefully figures it out soon. Otherwise, UNI probably should be looking/offering Bigs from Minnesota, Wisconsin, even Illinois.

From a guy who was there when it happened ...

Steve Phyfe was part of a tremendous group of athletes who turned Northern Iowa from a wanna be to the beginnings of a force in college basketball. You never, ever saw Steve Phyfe as a burden on the court, as a drag on the team, playing in a lack-luster manner. He just happened to come from a small school (immaterial) and excelled at UNI.

Phyfe did leave the state first before coming to UNI though. I really think Austin is a great fit at UNI do hopefully he comes here. He's got a chance to have a real nice career at UNI.

Austin has offers from North Dakota (Brian Jones was a freshman when Steve was a senior) and Air Force. Not exactly power schools. I wonder if our offer was initially a 4 for 5 and he's waiting to see if he gets a full.

Kind of something to go along with this. There was an update on Brad Davison, whom has had an offer from UNI for quite a while (over a year if I'm not mistaken) There was an update on him a couple of weeks ago via NY2LA

http://www.ny2lasports.com/article_o...articleid=3178

Quote:
A high-IQ, heady floor general, they don’t come tougher and more determined than Osseo (Minn.) Maple Grove 2017 point guard Brad Davison. Holding five early scholarship offers, Davison is fielding a solid amount of high major interest this fall.


One of those programs, Wisconsin, hosted Davison unofficially for the third time this year last Saturday.

“It was great,” Davison told NY2LA Sports. “It was great to spend time with their coaches. The atmosphere around campus on a football game day was awesome. It was really cool to see. It was a unique experience. A lot of red, a lot of fans.”

Davison has offers from Nebraska, Northern Iowa, Winthrop, Buffalo, and George Mason.

He picked up his first and only high major offer from the Huskers last year.

“I was really excited,” he said. “It happened right after my sophomore season. It was exciting to know I could play at that level.

“They’ve been up here twice for open gyms this fall. I still text with their staff and coach (Tim) Miles quite a bit.”

Davison added that Northern Iowa and South Dakota State are also pushing hard for his services as of late.

Northern Iowa: “They’ve been really successful. I have a really good relationship with their coaches. They have a great program and tradition there.”


South Dakota State: “I went down there earlier this fall. I talk with their coaches quite a bit. We have a strong relationship as well.”

Missouri, Gonzaga, Stanford, Wichita State, Drake, Davidson, and Vanderbilt are also showing interest in Davison.

The 6-foot-2, 180-pound junior has no leaders at this time. His timeline going forward is also open.

“I’m still pretty even with everyone,” he said. “I haven’t sat down and talked it over with my parents yet.

“To be honest, I’m not really sure when I’ll make a decision. I think I’ll probably let things play out for a while to see what options I have.”

Davison plays with Howard Pulley during the travel season.

Fantastic news! I was hoping he would commit. He's s great fit and has a chance to play quite a bit at an early stage in his career. I would think UNI just goes after a wing with the other scholarship in 2017.

Anyone able to give a good analysis on his game and how it will fit with our style? I'm sure some of the ppl on this board have seen him play with the proximity to CF. I know the article goes into some but was just looking at maybe a more in depth analysis.

Big dude that can go inside and out.

Maybe not the best comparison, but he reminds me a bit of Jake Koch. As much as many seemed to think he wasn't that good, Jake is one of the best to ever wear a Panther uniform.

What will the scholarship breakdown look like? Graduating seniors will be Wes, Paul, Matt and...who else? Are we looking at 2 additional openings to add to? Phyfe provides another 4/5 type player I'm guessing. So we'd be in the hunt for some depth at guard? Most likely the 2/3 spot?
