Dahlman Decision Draws Near

Isaiah Dahlman has made plenty of headway in the recruiting process - as the Minnesota native has been down to a pair of schools for a while. The Braham High (Minn.) senior will finish the final piece to the process this weekend.

Heading into the summer, Isaiah Dahlman was regarded as a top 25 player by most people. Now, after an injury-plagued ending to July, the Braham (Minn.) High senior small forward has fallen down the rankings (Scout.com, No. 70).

Dahlman really doesn't care.

``To be honest, I've never gotten online to see where I'm ranked. It's not a big factor to me," said the 6-foot-6, 175-pound Dahlman. "The college coaches told me they were impressed that I sucked it up and tried to play."

Dahlman injured his ankle the second game at Peach Jam and then played down in Orlando at well below 100 percent.

Dahlman is now fully recovered and he'll play his season-opening football game on Friday before taking his second official visit, to Michigan State, the following day.

Dahlman has already narrowed his list to Iowa and MSU, so expect a decision shortly after he completes his official visit to Lansing this weekend.

``This is the only thing left for me in the process," Dahlman said of this weekend's trip to Michigan State.

Dahlman said he doesn't really find any faults with either of the program's - and that's why they are both left on his list.

``I took an official visit to Iowa already and went with an open mind," Dahlman said. "I knew most of the coaches, but saw that Iowa City is a nice little college town and the players are real cool. I fit in real easy.

``I took an unofficial to Michigan State and I really love talking to Coach (Tom Izzo)," he added. "He's a great guy and the assistants are also great guys. The facilities are unbelievable and you look at what they've done in the NCAA Tournament. It's hard to pass up."
