(Watch this while we effort away on some Friday content. -- Ross) Just saw this posted via Hawkeyesports Facebook page 2011-2012 Iowa Hawkeyes Men's Basketball Season Highlights
C Kyle Meyer 6'10" - Northview (Atlanta*, GA) Not much for highlights for him. At least we know ONE guy can dunk on this team. (We actually know they ALL can, but still...). Nice to have seen both he and Woodbury taking it coast-to-coast no matter how awkward it looked. Gesell and Woodbury are the high-profile guys of this class (both in talent and because they're local-ish), but i think the three less-heralded guys have pretty good skillsets that will contribute greatly to the team. I hope, anyway. *basically
Patrick Ingram Highlights (full season, uploaded yesterday) I don't know that he projects to be a starter on an Top-1/3 B1G team, but he's definitely got the skills, size and athleticism to be a contributor. Good, quick shot. Good handle for an off-guard. Long arms; quick hands.
LAYIN' THE LAW! (via BTN) Nico Law's coverage skills are still very much a question mark, but on hitting alone, he's already won a place in our hearts.
