Good for two former Cyclones. 

Former Iowa State walk-on Kourtlin Jackson is getting a scholarship. Former Fred Hoiberg assistant Doc Sadler is getting a quality player at Southern Mississippi. 

Jackson, a 6-foot-1 soon-to-be senior out of Hoover High School in Des Moines, announced the news on social media Monday. 

"I am going to Southern Miss for my last year of eligibility," Jackson posted on his Instagram page. "I have nothing but love for the coaches, staff,players, and managers that are apart of Iow state men’s basketball program. I will never forget being apart of cycloneNation."

Jackson saw time in eight games last season for the Cyclones.
