Comes from a big school that played in the tourney and was ranked most of the year. His big at 6’7” as well

Let's be honest here.  A kid who was recruited to a Big 10 school generally has the talent to succeed in the MAC.

A real D1 player!

Not to mention he's 4" too short by your standards. SEND HIM TO DIII WHERE HE BELONGS! :thumb:

 

In all seriousness, the kid is coming from one of the most disciplined programs in the country. At the very least, he's going to be fundamentally sound, with big game experience. I like it.

Kid looks fluid.

Personally, I'm not a big fan of the sit one year to play one year players. I'd much rather get a grad transfer who can play right away or a player with multiple years of eligibility left.

 

That being said, I think he should be a productive player in the MAC. He has good size and athleticism. From what I read he's a defensive specialist. I would expect his offensive numbers to improve some playing against MAC competition instead of B10. How much they will improve is to be seen.

Agreed in most circumstances. However, I look at these one-and-done's like assistant coach/players, especially when they're coming from disciplined, top-flight programs such as Iowa. When we have as many roster openings as we're going to have in 2 seasons, we're gonna need a guy like Dailey.

Local kid, had a couple of big games (Colorado, Michigan State). Played in 33 and 35 games the last two seasons. I'll take him. Being a Hawkeye fan I know he was buried behind a senior and a sophomore (coaches son) last two years. Iowa also has a couple of redshirts coming back next year.

Now I am afraid the Iowa Hawkeyes program is falling apart as kids are transferring out!

That would make Cykron happy!

It's hard to keep track of the transfer rules these days. Does him having to sit a year mean Iowa didn't release him? Seems some guys get to play right away. Local kid coming home. Fine.

I am not big on another transfer coming to the school for just one season.  Groce has a revolving door of players.  This year we had 2 scholarships that were wasted on transfers, Hester and the guy that punched out Klac.  ( I cannot remember his name)  I would much rather Groce try to build a team with frosh.    He has 3 years left to prove that he can build a winning program.

I agree 100%. Two wasted years and still only two D1 players, one of whom is good but his nickname is "shorty".

I will forfeit next year if he would dump what we have and recruit some freshmen with room to grow.

It means he hasn't graduated yet

Dailey was good enough to be a consistent rotation player at Iowa, but he isn't a D1 caliber player?

I'm cool with this, albeit not overly excited.  I'm hoping for more news today on either another high school senior signee or a player who can help us on the court next season.
