One of Iowa State’s top targets for the 2023 recruiting cycle stood out in a big way at one of the college basketball recruiting calendar’s biggest events last week.
Waukee forward Omaha Biliew was named as one of the 10 all-star selections last week at the NBA Top 100 Camp, signifying the five-star prospect was one of the event’s biggest standouts while competing against some of the nation’s best competition.
Biliew averaged 9.5 points and 5.7 rebounds while shooting 51 percent and averaging 35.5 minutes per game in six contests. Another Iowa State priority target, Milan Momcilovic, averaged 7.6 points and shot 36 percent from behind the 3-point line during the event.
The 6-foot-8, 210-pound Biliew is considered one of the top prospects in the country in the 2023 recruiting class, ranking as the No. 14 prospect nationally, No. 6 power forward and No. 1 player in Iowa by the 247Composite.
Iowa State is one of four finalists for Biliew, who played at Link Prep in Missouri last season, but will reportedly be returning to Waukee for his final season of high school basketball in 2022-23.
Momcilovic, a native of Pewaukee, Wis., has been nearly as eye-catching during the early parts of the grassroots slate this summer, and ranks as the No. 35 player in the class, No. 8 power forward and No. 1 player in Wisconsin.
Iowa State gained its first commitment of the 2023 recruiting cycle last week when Georgia guard Jelani Hamilton announced his pledge.
All three players are expected to play in the EYBL event in Kansas City this weekend. Cyclone Fanatic will be on the ground with full coverage of the event.
