Cyclone notables from Scout.com’s new top 100

Scout.com has released its updated “top 100” and as expect, Iowa State commitment Matt Thomas has skyrocketed up the list.

Thomas, a 6-foot-4 shooting guard out of Onalaska, Wisc. is No. 55 on Scout’s new rankings (the No. 11 SG in the class), committed to Iowa State earlier this summer. Going off of memory alone, Thomas was ranked in the 80’s on Scout’s previous list. Many scouts around the country are referring to Thomas as the best shooter in the class of 2013. In fact, I’ve heard from a couple of sources that when ESPN’s new rankings come out, Thomas might very well be in the top 40. Stay tuned.

Another Cyclone commitment is in Scout’s top 100. That’s Monte Morris, a 6-foot-1 point guard out of Flint, (Mich.) Beecher, at No. 77.

A few other notables…

— Iowa State has been heavily recruiting Lakeville, Conn. power forward Kyle Washington for quite some time. Washington, who has additional offers from Florida, Marquette, Miami, Minnesota, Notre Dame and Georgia Tech just to name a view, is ranked No. 82 on Scout’s new list.

— Another guy to keep an eye on is Vince Hunter, who is at No. 98 on the list. Hunter is a 6-foot-8 power forward out of Detroit who Cornell Mann appears to be actively recruiting.
