At the end of Steve Prohm’s first week at the helm of Iowa State, he extended three offers to players on Team Thad in Tennessee late on a Friday night.
One of those prospects was 6-foot-2 point guard Jordan Bone. The main recruiter for Bone has been Prohm himself and for now the Cyclones remain at least somewhat in the mix.
“Tennessee, VCU, UCF, Ole Miss, and Iowa State [show the most interest],” Bone said. “They are just telling me how much talent and upside they see in my game and how they all want to help me develop into a great basketball player because I have all of the tools as far as speed, athleticism, and IQ.”
Bone currently has some of his five official visits set up.
“No school is sticking out the most right now. I'm just enjoying the whole recruiting process,” Bone said. “I have three visits already set up [to] VCU, Tennessee, and Ole Miss. Those are all officials, and I'm taking VCU in August, Tennessee and Ole Miss in September, and I'm not sure about my other two options, but I do want to take all five of my official visits.”
Bone isn’t sure which other schools will get his final two visits, saying visits to the other two primary schools in his mix (UCF and Iowa State) are “possible.”
He has no timeline in place, but has one key factor.
“Playing time my freshman year," Bone said of what he is looking for. “I want to play key minutes my freshman year.”
