Noskowiak picks Iowa state
Usually this time of year Fred Hoieberg adds a transfer to his roster, but on Sunday the Iowa State head coach switched it up and added a late pledge from a high school standout. Nick Noskowiak, a 6-foot-2 combination guard out of Sun Prairie (Wisc.) High, committed to Hoiberg and Iowa State, sources told Scout. A former Marquette signee, Noskowiak parted ways with the Golden Eagles in mid-February. When he did, a host of schools dabbled with the four-star prospect. Among the other schools to recruit him were USC, who he visited officially. Noskowiak is currently ranked as the No. 15 point guard and No. 93 in the 2015 recruiting class. Colleague Brian Snow pointed out that his versatility is one of Noskowiak’s biggest strengths. “Nick is a talented combo guard who can run the point or be a primary scorer,” Snow said. “He isn't the most efficient player, and has to improve his ability to guard, but he does have some natural ability.” “Nick can get into the lane off the bounce or beat you from three when he gets into a groove shooting it,” he added. “Consistency and focus will be the keys to his development at Iowa State.” Noskowiak is Iowa State’s first pledge in the 2015 class.
