Iowa State has landed a commitment from three-star point guard Tyrese Haliburton. The 6-foot-5, 170-pound Oshkosh, Wis. native announced his decision via his Twitter account Monday evening.

Haliburton, who is rated as the No. 177 player in the country by 247Composite, is Iowa State’s second commitment in the past week joining four-star forward Zion Griffin.
