Lindell Wigginton has verbally committed to play for Steve Prohm’s Iowa State Cyclones next year.
The Oak Hill (VA) guard chose the Cyclones over Oregon and Arizona State, after visiting the school last month on an official visit. The Canada native told Scout.com, “I just felt it was right in my heart after my visit, I really liked my visit. I liked how the coaches were talking to me. Me and the coaches have had a good relationship since they first started. I know I can go in there and make a impact as a freshman. I think this is the right fit for me.”
Although many believed Oregon was the frontrunner, Wigginton relationship with the coaches and talks he had with Prohm ultimately led to his decision. The athletic guard talked about how Prohm believes his game is very similar to current NBA player Isaiah Canaan, as Wigginton was quoted, “that’s who he feels I play like and I can do the same stuff.”
Wigginton is the Cyclones third recruit of the class, joining Houston point guard Darius McNeil and wing Terrance Lewis. With star point guard Monte Morris set to graduate after the season, Wigginton very well be the Cyclones next point guard.
A combo guard at heart, Wigginton displayed his ability to play with the ball in his hands this summer as the primary floor general for Jerry Steakhouse Elite in the Adidas Uprising circuit, where he averaged 16.6ppg, 3.0rpg and 4.4apg.
