Steve Prohm added another piece to the 2017 recruiting class as KeyShawn Feazell committed to the Cyclones today after unofficially visiting campus last weekend. Feazell’s commitment comes on the heels of Terrence Lewis committing just two weeks ago.
Feazell is a 6’9” - 225 pound forward from Monticello, Mississippi and is ranked between 100-150 nationally by most of the major outlets. Feazell chose Iowa State over the likes of Baylor, Alabama, Pitt and Mississippi State.
KeyShawn has a fairly good handle for a big man and can really rebound and get up and down the floor. All of those traits should allow him to be a solid fit in Prohm’s up tempo offense. He has displayed the ability to stretch the floor at times and could see time at either forward position to help facilitate a more standard or “small ball” type lineup.
You can find some highlights here.
As far as piecing together the rest of the class, I would look for Prohm to add a high school point guard like a Darius McNeill or Lindell Wigginton or by some stroke of genius, Collin Sexton, and round the class out with some JUCOs, transfers or grad transfers in an effort to balance the classes going forward.
Feazell’s commitment moves Iowa State’s 2017 class up to 16th nationally at this point via 247Sports Class Calculator.
