AMES, Iowa – The Iowa State men’s basketball program has announced that top-100 guard Nick Noskowiak (nuh-sko-WE-ack) has signed a financial aid agreement to join the team for the 2015-16 season.
Noskowiak, a 6-2, 180-pounder, originally signed with Marquette in the fall but was released from his letter of intent and will be eligible immediately.
The Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, native is widely considered a top-100 prep player, earning a top ranking of 75th by ESPN.com. He was also ranked 79th by 247sports.com and CBSSports.com and 90th by FoxSports.com.
“Nick possesses great size and playmaking ability from the point guard position,” assistant coach T.J. Otzelberger said. “But he isn’t locked into one spot because his ability will allow us to play him and multiple positions. He’s a really good 3-point shooter and someone that we are excited to add to our program.”
Noskowiak averaged 20 points for Sun Prairie High School as a senior. He scored a season-high 43 points in the Cardinals win against Beloit Memorial.
Noskowiak’s junior year saw him earn all-state first-team honors after scoring 23.7 points per game and helping the Cardinals to the sectional finals.
He was a member of Playground Elite on the AAU circuit.
Noskowiak joins Arkansas transfer Nick Babb as newcomers for the Cyclones. Iowa State has two scholarships available for the 2015-16 season.
