    McCabe resembling Jess Settles

    Word out of Iowa City is that Zach McCabe is resembling former Hawkeye Jess Settles. Sturdy F is the unsung presence for Fran McCaffery.

    Does that mean he will get injured and end up playing at Iowa for 10 years?

    Exactly what I was thinking. He is primed to lead the 2016-17 team.

    Jess Settles looks a lot different than I remember in that picture.

    He does kind of, except for the fact that Settles was big time from his first game, pretty much. Their games may be the same, but the level of their games, when Settles was healthy, we're way different. I don't mean that as a slight. Settles was that good, when healthy.

    That wouldn't prevent a guy like McCabe from improving to that point, though. Just because Settles was great from Day 1 doesn't mean McCabe can't be as great after developing for a couple years.

    I'm not saying McCabe is as good as Settles. But it's possible that it's more than just style of play that's drawing comparisons.

    HawkeyeRyno's yearly assessment of Fran's recruiting:

    Really? Because judging by how many of Fran's top targets have committed elsewhere so far and Iowa has no commitments I'd say recruiting trail has been a struggle so far for Fran for the [insert current recruiting year] class.

    I don't disagree with you. That just wasn't the point I was making and I didn't feel like expanding beyond the point I was working on.
