The Iowa State men’s basketball team has landed its first commitment for the Class of 2014.
It’s Rivals.com top-100 prospect Clayton Custer of Overland Park, Kan.
Custer, a 6-1, 160-pound, self-described “pure point guard,” said one of the first people he contacted after making his choice was Class of 2013 star Matt Thomas of Onalaska, Wis.
“I told him I was going to be his teammate and everything,” said Custer, a first team all-state Class 6 selection last season. “I have a really good relationship with him.”
Same goes for ISU coach Fred Hoiberg and assistant T.J. Otzelberger.
“Unbelievable guys,” said Custer, who also had offers from Kansas State, Oklahoma State and Oklahoma. “Great coaches. Guys I want to play for.”
Custer, a junior at Blue Valley Northwest High School, averaged 19 points last season and scored 32 in the Class 6 title game.
On his last visit to Ames, he faced down Thomas on the court for the first — and maybe only — time.
Thomas is widely regarded as one of the nation’s most accurate shooting guards.
Custer, again, is a “pure point.”
“It was all fun,” Custer said. “It was fun to get to know him and play against him. I’m just happy I’m going to get to play with him.”
