    Yes, but rumors are he might reclass.

    And I will take it a step further. Why would Ayo decide to come back now even though he has more time to test the waters? It's a message to Michael Foster. Just my opinion, maybe I'm way off.

    He just changed it today. His pinned tweet for a long time was him declaring for the draft. Now it is back to his "unfinished business" video. As always, take social media with a grain of salt. But Ayo does not seem like a kid that plays around. Everything he has done and said up to this point...

    So he would have 2 years of eligibility after his sit out year? I would gladly take a chance on him getting his mind and body right. His potential is still through the roof.

    Scrolling through his twitter feed now. The dude has serious hops.

    Not too familiar with Weston. But from what I've seen he reminds me of Jordan Goodwin/Rayvonte Rice. Nothing special or flashy about his game, but he has that valuable bulldog mentality that gets the job done. Is this accurate?

    Do people not realize there are 30+ recruits every season who enter college saying this same thing?

    2 completely different scenarios. Giorgi was BU's first true recruiting class. He had to add depth at C after whiffing on a bunch of guys in the fall. Giorgi was a project recruit that either works out (obviously it did) or gets recruited over and leaves after a year. Now BU has a full squad...

    4 pts 2 reb in 15 mpg as a junior? Don't think we'll be interested.

    I'm trying not to think too much about next year's team because the roster is not set yet. But I did some day dreaming today about some guys that we know for sure will be here. I can't wait to see what we look like offensively. Kofi Cockburn: We all know the potential is through the roof. He...

    If we had TJ Holyfield this year we would've won the B1G. If we get Fitts next year we will win the B1G.

    Wait, what? Every year Iowa is one of the fastest pace teams in the B1G. Due to our defensive change, our pace dropped to 11th in the B1G...one spot above OSU. If Carton wants to get out and run, Iowa is clearly the place to go.

    It's not a coincidence that Trent's numbers went down and Ayo's went up when Trent took over as the primary ball handler. If Curbelo can play 25+ min as the PG then Trent's numbers will definitely go back up.

    Yes, we won a lot of close games. But part of that is we didn't have enough offensive fire power to pull away from teams. Next year's team has the potential to light up the nets so hopefully we won't have to rely on late game heroics quite so much.

    That gym is in Peoria FYI. Looks like Damonte has been working out with him. Hopefully Adam's scoring is rubbing off on Damonte, and Damonte's defense is rubbing off on Adam.
