RECRUITING: Shakur Juiston sets official visit

According to a source, Hutchinson Community College forward Shakur Juiston will officially visit Iowa State next weekend.

The visit, which was first reported by 247 Sports, is an important step for Iowa State, who was the first high-major program to offer the 6-foot-7, 215-pound prospect.

Juiston, who recently led Hutchison to a junior college national championship, averaged 17.3 points and 12.1 rebounds per game last season. At this point, he is arguably the most important piece of Iowa State’s spring recruiting period, where the Cyclones have four scholarships to give.

Chris was hired as Cyclone Fanatic’s publisher in the fall of 2009. He is Iowa State football’s postgame show host on the Cyclone Radio Network and can be heard daily from 4-7 on Des Moines’ top-rated sports station, 1460 KXnO.

Williams, a 2007 graduate of Iowa State’s Greenlee School of Journalism, is the former publisher of the old CycloneNation.com (Scout.com). He has also written for the Des Moines Register, the Ames Tribune, CycloneReport.com and is the former sports director at KMA Radio.

When Williams isn’t working, you can usually find him doing something outdoors with his wife Ashley, daughter Camryn, and Golden Retriever Dierks. He enjoys golfing, boating, country music, the Minnesota Vikings, Atlanta Braves and is passionate about any and all motor sports so finding Williams at a local dirt track is very common.
