RECRUITING: Prohm adds major piece to 2018 class

Steve Prohm is sure to be smiling right now. That’s because Iowa State’s head coach just landed an important commitment in his class of 2018, Zion Griffin out of Illinois.

Griffin, a 6-foot-6 forward made his commitment to the Cyclones Tuesday evening on Twitter. He chose Iowa State over additional offers from Kansas, Pittsburgh and Illinois State.

The Chicago Sun Times was first to report the commitment. 

Prohm and his staff recently paid Griffin an in-home visit that obviously went very well.

Cyclone Fanatic will have more on this developing story later tonight.
