McCaffery Talks Recruiting

Iowa Coach Fran McCaffery spoke about recruiting in the 2014 class before heading out on the road Friday.

Q. How do you feel like you guys are doing for 2014 recruiting-wise?

COACH McCAFFERY: I think we are doing pretty well. We've locked in on a few guys. I think it's a good class. Had a number of people on campus. We'll see.

Q. Position-wise what do you need?

COACH McCAFFERY: Well, I think you typically target what you lose. We'll look for a wing guy who can play the point and some post guys, so we've got to get some forwards, preferably a versatile guy.

But, you know, you go in and say, okay, that's what we are looking for, but not necessarily what we are going to right. If you have an opportunity to get somebody who is a great player at a position, you're going to try to get them anyway.

Q. In Chicago, that class, how important is that area to you guys?

COACH McCAFFERY: Well, I think it's potentially very important. We've worked Chicago since we've gotten here and it's been good to us over the years. A lot of terrific players, terrific coaches. A lot of really good players that have come in ready.

But you know, like I always say, if we don't get somebody from Chicago, we'll get somebody from somewhere else that can play.
