Cyclones still in the running for Negus Webster-Chan

Negus Webster-Chan is doing exactly what he said he was going to do.

The 6-foot-7, 2012 Iowa State men’s basketball target is playing the recruiting process out.

Webster-Chan, who calls Huntington, W.V. home, visited Iowa State two weeks ago. This past weekend, he officially visited Missouri.

“Both Missouri and Iowa State were better than I expected,” Webster-Chan said. “I could see myself playing at either school.”

Webster-Chan will shift gears from the Big 12 to the ACC this weekend, as he’s scheduled to visit Clemson.

At one point in the process, Webster-Chan had planned to make his college decision during the spring signing period. He’s now changed his mind and plans to decide in November.

A few notes from his recent visit to Iowa State…

“The fans were so passionate and dedicated.”

On Iowa State’s coaching staff…

“The coaching staff and team impressed me a lot. The guys were really cool.  They welcomed me with open arms.”
