INSIDER: New visit set, ISU no longer recruiting Wright

There are few things in sports more fluid than recruiting. This week, a few things have changed for Iowa State men’s basketball.

*** McKinley Wright, a point guard out of Minnesota, no longer has an Iowa State offer. This comes just days after Wright announced via Twitter that Iowa State would receive his first official visit. A few days ago, Iowa State informed Wright that they are no longer recruiting him.


It’s complicated, but it all comes down to fit (style of play) and timing. Iowa State has its eye on other point guards ahead of Wright, who was ready to make a decision sooner rather than later.

It is a refreshing case of a program being honest with a kid. This just doesn’t happen very often.

*** Iowa State will receive a visit from a combo guard out of Houston named Darius McNeill on Sept. 3. McNeill, listed at 6-foot-3, reportedly has offers from Baylor, Cincinnati, LSU, TCU and others.

*** Finally, Terrance Lewis, a small forward out of Milwaukee, is on campus right now. For what it’s worth, I LOVE Iowa State’s chances with this four-star recruit.
