Texas combo guard Darius McNeill confirmed to Cyclone Fanatic on Friday that he has requested a full release from his national letter of intent with Iowa State. He signed with the Cyclones in November.
McNeill, a 6-foot-2, 165-pound three-star prospect, is rated as the No. 29 shooting guard in the class by 247. He’s the No. 146 player in the class and No. 10 prospect in Texas.
He was set to arrive on campus in Ames in time for summer school in June.
Once, or if, Iowa State grants his release, the Cyclones will have three open scholarships for the 2017-18 season. The school will have the final say in granting the release and whether or not it will include restrictions.
McNeill has not made a reason for his request known.
