ISU joins early crowd on Gesell

Mike Gesell has never played a high school basketball game and he's already holding onto two Big 12 offers along with two from the Missouri Valley. One of those team's already in the mix for this 5-foot-11, 165 pound sharp shooter out of South Sioux City (Neb.) is Iowa State.

"I have four offers, from Iowa State, Nebraska, Creighton and UNI," Gesell told on Sunday night.

Gesell is currently preparing for his freshman season at South Sioux City. Gesell didn't play football this year so he could concentrate on basketball.

"This was the first year that I didn't. I wanted to focus on basketball more," Gesell said. "I've been working out and lifting a lot. I've really been working on my mid-range game this fall and shooting a lot."

Gesell and South Sioux City will begin their 2008-09 season on Dec. 5 when they will play host to Sioux City (Iowa) Bishop Heelan.
