"I think there was an assumption that because he went there that I would follow," Ben said. "Really, we haven't talked a whole lot about it. I'm not leaning that way. If it happens, it happens."
"My dad and I have talked about it," Ben said. "It's not an uncomfortable situation for us at all. He's looking at this thing as a father, not as a coach. He wants to help me to find the school that's right for me, where I can do well.
"I'm his son and that's the main goal. He's not thinking that because I'm his son and he coaches (at Iowa) that I have to play there."
Ben (6-2, 175) described the relationship with his father as being real good. He would look at Iowa if an offer did come.
"It could happen, but again it will come down to if it's the best fit for me not that he is there," Ben said. "Right now, I'm open to everyone and weighing my options. We'll see how it works out from there."
Ben said he's more of a combo guard than he is a point. He will play his senior season at Frisco (Texas) High School.
