Hoops Recruiting Update: New Name to Watch

Mark Fox has been hot on the trail of a big man to add some depth to what will be a very depleted front court next season. According to Dan McDonald of UGASports ($$$), East Lansing, Michigan PF Walter Pitchford is getting some serious looks from Fox and Company. He's 6'9, has a good offensive game out to three, and is very long and athletic- just the type of player CMF is looking for.

He was once a DePaul commit, but was released from his letter of intent when Oliver Purnell took over in Chicago. If you take the time to watch the video above, you'd be pretty surprised that his only offer to this point is Iowa. For a more detailed scouting report CLICK HERE. Needless to say, after reading that I'd be very confident that this kid would be a major part of our team next year if decided to make the trek down to Athens.

Here are a few more highlights:

Yeah, pretty impressive for a two-star recruit.

  1. You have to really love the recruits Fox is going after. Fox seems to have an eye for great talent to fit his triangle offense
