Four-star point guard Lindell Wiggington commits to Iowa State

Iowa State was in need of a 2017 point guard and Steve Prohm filled that need on Friday with the addition of 2017 Oak Hill point guard Lindell Wigginton.

Four-star point guard Lindell Wigginton verbally committed to Iowa State, he tells Scout.

"I just felt it was right in my heart after my visit," Wigginton said. "I really liked my visit. I liked how the coaches were talking to me. Me and the coaches have had a good relationship since they first started. I know I can go in there and make a impact as a freshman. I think this is the right fit for me."

"Early this week, I knew I was committing there," he added. "But ever since the visit I knew in my heart that's where I wanted to be."

Wigginton picked the Cyclones over Arizona State and Oregon. He visited all three schools. 

"Steve Prohm, the head coach, ever since he talked to me the first, he didn't miss a day talking to me, whether it was texting or calling," Wigginton said. "it's like a family over there." 

Prohm has coached his fair share of talented point guards, including Cameron Payne, Isaiah Canaan and most recently Monte Morris. Prohm used that in his pitch to Wigginton.

"He told me about them and told me about Isaiah Canaan," he said. "That's who he feels I play like and I can do the same stuff." 

Wigginton is ranked as the No. 14 point guard and the No. 66 overall prospect in the 2017 class. 

Wigginton is Iowa State's third pledge of the 2017 class. He joins three-star recruits Terrence Lewis and Darius McNeill to make up their current class.
