Which college coaches will recruit in 2022 Iowa Boys State Basketball?

Good morning all. Welcome, once again, to the recruitment mail.

We are focusing on basketball this week. And in particular the Iowa Boys Basketball State Tournament, which will take place at Wells Fargo Arena next Monday through Friday.

But first…

South Dakota State has had one hell of a regular season, going 27-4 and 18-0 in the Summit League. The Jackrabbits (obviously) are the No. 1 seed in their conference tournament this weekend, and they might even have an outside shot at an NCAA Tournament berth if they don’t win the title.

They do all of this with a roster full of Iowans.

Des Moines Hoover produces Doug Wilsonthe reigning Summit League Player of the Year, is having another strong season with 16 points per game.

Cedar Rapids Xavier product Matt Mims is averaging 4.6 points per game.

Marshalltown product Luke Appel is averaging 9.5 points per game.

Kuemper’s Catholic product Matt Dentlinger is averaging 5.7 points per game.

South Dakota State's Doug Wilson slammed two of his 16 points in Saturday's win over St. Thomas at Frost Arena.  Wilson was playing the last home game of his career.

They are four of South Dakota State’s nine leading scorers hailing from Iowa. The Jackrabbits have always done a good job recruiting Iowa. And with Iowan and Iowa State alum Bryan Petersen, that trend is only set to continue. He led the recruiting of Boyden-Hull point guard and SDSU signee Tanner Te Slaa, and he’s the face of the Jackrabbits on the recruiting trail in that state.
