All three of Iowa State’s fall signees are ranked in the final edition of the 247 Top247. Oak Hill Academy point guard Lindell Wigginton leads the group at No. 43.

Wisconsin forward Terrence Lewis dropped four spots to No. 124 and Texas guard Darius McNeil climbed up 61 places to No. 145. Wigginton and Lewis are both four-star prospects while McNeill is a three-star.

Wigginton, a 6-foot-1 Canada native, averaged 20.1 points, 4.2 rebounds and 4.4 assists during his senior season for the Warriors. He was one of the standouts at the Nike Hoop Summit earlier this month and has been one of the hottest prospects in the country.

Lewis averaged 26 points and 10 rebounds per game during his senior season while earning unanimous all-state honors. He shot 77 percent from the floor and 62 percent from behind the 3-point line.

McNeil, a 6-foot-2 combo guard, averaged 15 points, six assists, three rebounds and three steals per game this season for Westfield High. He was named the district co-MVP alongside teammate Jase Frebes, who is a four-star prospect in the final Top247.

Iowa State has the No. 25 class in 247 team rankings with four scholarships left to fill during the spring.
