Iowa State continues to be under consideration by one of the nation’s top graduate transfers.

Multiple time first-team All-MAC guard Justin Turner included Iowa State in his top-three over the weekend. The 6-foot-4 Detroit native cut his list to include the Cyclones, Marquette and Missouri with a final decision expected sometime this week, according to The Stadium‘s Jeff Goodman.

Turner averaged more than 18 points per game each of the last two seasons for the Falcons and is a career 37.3 percent 3-point shooter. He added 4.6 rebounds and 2.5 assists this past season while finishing fourth in the Mid-American Conference in scoring.

Iowa State currently has four scholarships open for the 2020 spring recruiting cycle.
