Iowa Hawkeyes Basketball: Who's the Most Important Incoming Freshman?

In 2011, head basketball coach Fran McCaffery completed his first ever Big Ten recruiting class by signing a raw beanstalk from London, the Cedar Rapids version of Matt Gatens, and a skinny ginger from Ohio.  

It didn't look like much.

Many began to wonder if Iowa would ever obtain a recruiting class that bolstered some of the most talented seniors within the giant pool of Midwestern ballers. A continuous question that has been pounded into their brains, quite possibly from all of the dribbling former coach Todd Lickliter insisted upon in the offensive attack.

There seemed to be such a continual overlapping of distrust that most fans even wanted McCaffery to go against his better judgement and use his remaining scholarship on junior college players.

Thankfully, White Magic don't play that.

Enter the freshman class of 2012, a highly-touted and extremely well-rounded group of talented players ready to establish themselves as important future stock. After having gone through a few weeks of their freshman classes, what better time for their first debate?

Which incoming Hawkeye freshman is most important to the future of the program?
