    *** Jadda Buckley commits to Iowa State ***

    Fanatics,

    The Iowa State women's basketball team picked up a huge commitment from class of 2013 point guard, Jadda Buckley.

    Buckley - a Mason City native - picked the Cyclones over offers from Iowa and Kansas. She was also drawing interest from Ohio State, Wisconsin and many others.

    Currently, Buckley is ranked the No. 27 best player overall by the All-Star Girls Report, and the seventh-best point guard in the class of 2013. ESPN ranks her as the No. 57 best player.

    Here is a link to her ESPN profile.

    This is extremely good news! We've been after her for quite a while, and she's a big-time player.

    Very nice commit! This is what we need to get to the next level! Who else was she recruited by?

    Not too disparage anybody on this year's team because I haven't seen them play yet, but it will be very exciting to have an elite PG on the WBB team again.

    Among Moody, Blaskowsky, Buckley, Bingley, and Vanloo (if she comes here), PG should be set for quite a few years. I suspect Blaskowsky will end up being more of an Ezell-type combo guard. ISU has been successful in the past by stocking up on combo guards, and that seems to be the case here. We could see three "point guards" all on the court at the same time.

    It will be nice to get back to that. Last year, the few WBB games I was able to catch, it just seemed off to not have that go to point in the backcourt.

    Awesome news! Welcome to the family. And with BF at the helm, it is family. We have some great coaches at ISU, probably none better nor more passionate than Bill.

    Re: *** Jadda Buckley commits to Iowa State ***

    Buckley and Bingley are both 92 on ESPN's scale. Not a bad thing to have multiple players on the court who can handle the ball and shoot. Gotta be concerned we're getting a little heavy in player's starting in "B", though:)

    Is there any concern about height here? They are all about 5-7 to 5-9 at the most. I don't kno if this is the biggest concern in women's BB, or whether this will not be a problem.

    If they have a fast release, long range, and create their own shot, it shouldn't be a big factor. It sounds like these are guards who fit that description.

    For comparison, heights of players that have significant starts at PG for ISU since 1997:

    Frese 5'8"
    Wilson 5'9"
    O'Neil 5'11"
    Medders 5'9"
    Ezell 5'9"
    Lacey 6'0"
    Mansfield 5'7"
    Cole 5'8"
