Basketball Recruiting: Who Commits Next?

After an impressive 2018 class, what does 2019 look like?

The 2018 recruiting was for Steve Prohm was as impressive as they come. Now we look forward to the 2019 class and things are a little cloudy on who may make the jump to Ames. Iowa State has a long way to go before taking commits but there are few names out there that are worth keeping an eye on. Here are three names that pop out to me that may be part of the next Cyclone class.

Luke Anderson- Florida

3-Star Small Forwad

Luke Anderson is one of the best shooters in the entire 2019 class. Anderson averages 24 points per game along with 14 rebounds. During his junior season, Anderson played all over the court, from guard to center. Currently, Iowa State and Xavier are pushing for Anderson’s services the hardest. Steve Prohm envisions using Anderson much like Georges Niang, and that is what they have been selling him on.

KyKy Tandy- Kentucky

4-Star Combo Guard

Besides the awesome name, KyKy Tandy is an impressive player. Tandy averaged over 30 points per game last season and he is only beginning to reach his potential. It appears that Tandy is waiting on an offer from Kentucky that has not come yet. Iowa State is still very much in the mix, along with Kansas State, Tennessee, and Cincinnati. If the offer from Kentucky never comes it will ramp up Tandy’s recruitment so much more. Right now I just see Steve Prohm in the fold, but it all depends on if Kentucky offers or not.

Kira Lewis- Alabama

4-Star Point Guard

Iowa State is very impressed with Kira Lewis, and wants him to make the trip to Ames. Recently, Steve Prohm secured an in-home visit with Lewis, but Alabama is trying to keep Lewis in-state.

Other names to watch include are, point guard Tyreke Locure, point guard Tyrell Terry and power forward E.J. Liddell. These three names may come into the fold further depending on how recruitment goes on other prospects. Nonetheless, this upcoming class will be a tightly contested one.
