RECRUITING: Iowa State lands four-star guard Nojus Indrusaitis

The first domino in Iowa State’s 2024 men’s basketball recruiting class has fallen.

Four-star guard Nojus Indrusaitis announced his commitment to T.J. Otzelberger’s program on Thursday. He’s the Cyclones’ first 2024 commit and the pledge comes just days after he officially visited Ames last weekend.

Rated as the No. 77 player in the 2024 recruiting class by the 247Composite, the 6-foot-5, 185-pound shooting guard from Lemont, Ill. also held offers from Nebraska, Xavier, DePaul, Illinois, Iowa, Marquette, Maryland and Missouri. He’s considered the No. 17 shooting guard in the class and No. 3 player in Illinois.

Iowa State’s 2023 recruiting class finished as the highest-ranked class in program history, and Indrusaitis gives the program another solid start to the next cycle.
