Iowa basketball recruiting hits a snag

According to our friends at the HawkeyeNation and HawkeyeReport Web sites, it appears Iowa’s efforts to land a pair of Chipola (Fla.) Junior College players Malcolm Armstead and Torye Pelham are on life support.

It appears now that Pelham won’t visit Iowa, while Armstead will visit St. John’s rather than Iowa. Armstead had a visit scheduled for Friday, but it has not been rescheduled.

It also appears Chipola Coach Greg Heiar, a Dubuque native, will join Southern Mississippi Coach Larry Eustachy in Hattiesburg, Miss. One wonders if Heiar is trying to steer either of those players to Southern Miss. Also, if Southern Miss lands either (or both) play, is that adequate compensation for the schools’ trademark dispute?
