Iowa State landed a huge commitment on Friday when top-50 recruit Lindell Wigginton, a 6-1 guard from Nova Scotia, Canada and currently a senior at prep powerhouse Oak Hill Academy, gave the Cyclones a verbal pledge. He ultimately chose the Steve Prohm-led program over Arizona State and Oregon. Wigginton becomes the third 2017 commit for Iowa State, after Terrence Williams (6-6 forward out of Riverside University High in Milwaukee, WI) and Darius McNeil (6-3 guard out of Westfield High in Houston, TX).
Iowa State head coach Steve Prohm and assistant coach Neill Berry visited Wigginton at Oak Hill Academy in West Virginia on Wednesday.
“Iowa State made me a priority and they always made me feel like family,” Wigginton said. “They trust me to be their scoring guard and I trust them to coach me. Coach Prohm is a humble guy. He keeps it real, he doesn’t tell you what you want to hear and I like that.”
Wigginton made his official visit in September on the same weekend that Iowa State commit Terrence Lewis, ranked No. 59 by ESPN, was on campus. The Iowa State campus made quite an impression.
“When I was on my visit everyone was so genuine the people made me feel like home,” said Wigginton.
