Iowa State has hit the transfer market hard the last few seasons and it’s paid off with a lot of talented players finishing their careers playing for head coach Fred Hoiberg.
The Cyclones continued that recent trend on Sunday as former Arkansas guard Nick Babb announced that he committed to Iowa State. Babb’s older brother, Chris, played for the Cyclones under Hoiberg as well.
The 6-foot-5 Babb averaged 0.7 points and 0.8 rebounds per game in only 4.7 minutes per contest in his freshman season with the Razorbacks. Babb will sit out the 2015-16 season due to NCAA transfer rules. After that, Babb will have three seasons of eligibility remaining and he’ll join Monte Morris, Hallice Cooke and Matt Thomas as the future Iowa State backcourt.
Babb took a visit to Iowa State over the weekend and fills one of four open scholarships that the Cyclones have this offseason.
