Iowa State dipped into New York, New England and stayed in the Midwest for its first three commitments in 2012.
Now, Fred Hoiberg and the Cyclones have gone into Canada for their fourth recruit. Naz Long, a 6-foot-2 combo guard from Findlay Prep (Nev.), popped for Iowa State on Saturday night.
With the ability to play both guard positions, Long will be a nice asset in the Big 12. He doesn’t look for his own shot very often, but he is a savvy passer and can run an offense effectively.
Long chose the Cyclones over Dayton, Creighton, Miami (Fl.), Missouri, Western Kentucky and Rice.
