Hawkeye Nation Reached Into N.C.

Steve Alford and the Iowa Hawkeyes will sign a forward this week. A native of California visited the school a few weeks ago and committed to the program early this week.

Thomas Picks Hawkeyes

Doug Thomas, a forward at Creedmoor (NC) Christian Faith is headed to Iowa. "Doug signed with Iowa," CFC coach Otho Lyon told TheInsidersHoops.com. "He's probably going to have to play the four-man for them."

Thomas is a native of California. He transferred to CFC last season to beef up his academic credentials. "He's got to get the test score. He's scheduled to take it two more times; he's scheduled to take the SAT and the ACT."

The Hawkeyes hosted Thomas the first weekend of May. Lyon said that his forward was supposed to visit UConn though a date had not been arranged. Thomas also visited Western Kentucky.

"Towards the end of the season, he turned it on," Lyon said. "That was all we had when JR (Morris) went out with a hand injury."
