Iowa State is a finalist for the one of the nation’s top transfers.

Utah transfer forward Both Gach included the Cyclones, along with Minnesota, Auburn, Maryland and Creighton, in his top-five released Tuesday evening. Iowa State currently has two scholarships open for the 2020-21 season and is also considered to be one of the favorites for Indiana graduate transfer forward Justin Smith.

Gach, a 6-foot-6, 183-pound Austin, Minn. native, averaged 10.7 points, 3.6 rebounds and 2.9 assists per game last season for the Utes while shooting 39.7 percent from the field and 25 percent from 3-point range. As a freshman in 2018-19, he averaged 7.7 points, 2.1 rebounds and 2.1 assists.

Coming out of high school in the 2018 recruiting class, Gach was a four-star recruit considered the No. 149 player in the country by 247.

Iowa State has already landed two transfer commitments this spring from Memphis sit-out Tyler Harris and DePaul graduate transfer Jalen Coleman-Lands.
