This one talks about the strength coach revolution in college.

Well it says the ones who don't....should.

"Muscles are the biggest shock absorbers against the wear and tear." So while it says there has been some..some movement away from traditional weights, they are still working out AND it would be better to reintroduce more lifting.


Tim Grover seems to have a little success in his career.

It's really hard to judge Conditt on summer ball, he is a project , but looks like he could have potential that strength and conditioning will make solid. They both have their senior year to get more work in. Like others have posted, either will work just which one wants to be with us. I'm not sure we could find a way to make it work for both. Still like to have Castleton.

This reminds me of the movie with Luke Wilson and Vince Vaughn, I think Back to School. The big guy running to trampoline and he had little Haji as his spotter!

He's actually considered a plus passer for a big. His highlight film was mostly him scoring, but he is no Pruitt. Lol

Griffin on Iowa State's recruitment:

Quote:
ďThey made me feel like a big priority,Ē Griffin said. ď . . . Coach Prohm . . . told me thereís a difference between need and want and he was like, they need me and they want me. It was kind of making me feel like a priority."

Griffin has already lined up four of his five official visits beginning Aug. 25 and running through the weekends in September. While he isnít ready to reveal where those visits will be, his list of schools is firming up.

ďItís going to be kind of hard to accept new schools. If thereís a school that Iíve liked, one of my dream schools, Iíll re-open, but itís going to be kind of hard to build that relationship late,Ē Griffin said. ď. . . After I take my officials, if one of the schools that Iíve already got my eye on, if they basically show me that Iím a bigger priority than what theyíre saying, then Iím going to make my decision toward the end of September or start of October, one of those.Ē
Iowa-State in the mix following Illinois wing Zion-Griffin's July Emergence
