VERRRRY InterestingI just saw this interesting tweet from Rob Howe:
"'13 MI CG Austin Price Says #Iowa Cancels Official This Wknd Because #Hawkeyes Expect Verbal from Someone else. Said it's Not EC Matthews"
Really...hummm. wonder if it will be someone we know like Jok, or someone not previously on the radar.
If it is Jok, I would be very excited. You get a kid with top 50 talent, that is being under recruited because of the injury.
If it is Jok I would be more worried about his heart and toughness than his injuries, just based off one conversation I have had.
Which is of course enough evidence to question someone's heart and toughness.
He had Top 50 talent. Heck at one point he was rated #1 by some folks...well ahead of Jabari Parker, who some are calling the 'next Lebron'. However, he is not being under recruited. He's being recruited about where he belongs based on his performances the past two years, which have been hindered by injuries.
It's a risk-reward scenario. Possibly some big reward. You have a 13 man roster. Invariably one of two of those guys don't pan out..if not more. Worst case, you have a good three-point shooter. Best case, you have a wing who can attack the rim and make threes.
Another Rob Howe tweet:
"WDM Valley Coach Jeff Horner confirms via txt that his '13 wing Peter Jok ( @Mzungu_24) officially visiting #Iowa this wknd."
A one-man class is not going to break you, but it sure as hell can make you. It's a risk/reward scenario, but the risk isn't really that great. Worst comes to worst, and he doesn't re-gain his athleticism, put 10-15 pounds on him, and he is a lights out stretch 4.
