WIU cannot afford to recruit anymore hopefulls. That is what Kerwin did and most did not pan out or transfered to smaller schools. The kid from Moline is a project at best. I have seen him play atleast 5 times and i do not care what style of offense Moline plays he is not a D-1 caliber player skill wise, mentally maybe. And besides, what style of offense do you think WIU runs? Western in my 17 yrs following them has never had an inside game. They have at times had some evry skilled forwards who could offensively play inside but as for a legit crop of big men i have not seen it. I think in Derek Thomas' effort to make an immediate impression on the WIU community he in my opinion(and it is just one) rushed in his committment to Lasek, I think he could have used this spot to look in another area and then maybe re-visit Lasek later.

Not knocking the kid personally, just that he is not a good fit for WIU.

Lasek ended up Honorable mention all-state in the IBCA poll. Because of his defense, rebounding and shot blocking and "shot altering" abilities he lead Moline down the state finals. I'm sorry to disagree but I think he will be a great fit for us since our defense on the interior was so weak last season. Just an opinion and a hope that we won't have to endure another season like last year.

Sounds like 2 more GREAT recruits for Coach Thomas. WIU should vastly improve from last year.
