Rice graduate transfer Egor Koulechov has cancelled his Iowa State visit scheduled for this upcoming weekend, per a report by David Pick. The 6-foot-5 guard will make a final decision between Oklahoma and Florida.

Koulechov averaged 18.2 points and 8.9 rebounds per game this past season for the Owls. His visit was set to coincide with New Mexico graduate transfer Elijah Brown‘s.

Koulechov cancelling the visit should not play a role in the status Brown’s. Iowa State hosted Hutchinson C.C. forward Shakur Juiston, the No. 1 JUCO prospect in the country, this past weekend. They’ve also hosted Northwest Florida State C.C. guard Daryl Edwards and Virginia transfer Marial Shayok this month.

Our own Chris Williams reported on Sunday that Iowa State has scheduled a visit with Nebraska transfer Ed Morrow for the weekend of April 28. Iowa State is also reportedly still in the running for four-star former Mississippi State signee Garrison Brooks.
