Korie Lucious is officially a Cyclone

By Chris Williams, Publisher

The wait is over. Former Michigan State guard Korie Lucious has signed a financial aid agreement to transfer to Iowa State and become a Cyclone, where he’ll be eligible to play during the 2012-13 season.

“I just signed this morning,” Lucious told on Wednesday afternoon. “I felt like Iowa State was the best fit for me. The history that Coach (Fred) Hoiberg has and the type of person that he is was big. My parents will be able to come watch me play. It is the right fit for me.”

Lucious played in 18 games for Michigan State this season, where he averaged 6.5 points and 4.1 assists per game. It was at that point when Spartan head coach Tom Izzo dismissed him from the roster for violating team rules.

Check out later this afternoon for more exclusive quotes from the newest member of Iowa State’s basketball program, Korie Lucious.
