Meet Daniel Dingle

Cyclone Sports Report goes one-on-one with Bronx (NY) St.Raymond High School's Daniel Dingle on where his recruitment stands, his thoughts on new Iowa State head coach Fred Hoiberg, and when this Class of 2013 forward might make his decision.

Cyclone Sports Report: What schools have already given you a scholarship offer?

Daniel Dingle: Right now I have offers from Arizona, Fordham, Iowa State, Rutgers, St.John's, and West Virginia.

Cyclone Sports Report: Have you taken any visits yet?

Daniel Dingle: Yeah, I have been to Rutgers, Western Kentucky, and Kentucky.

Cyclone Sports Report: What is your current height and weight?

Daniel Dingle: I'm 6-foot-7 and I weigh 220 pounds.

Cyclone Sports Report: Which coach at Iowa State has been recruiting you the most?

Daniel Dingle: Coach Hoiberg has been handling my recruitment mostly for Iowa State. We have a very solid relationship and he's really handling things well. I think he'll do a great job at Iowa State and that he'll really build them back up into a good program again. With his experience in the NBA, I think he will have the best ideas for how to help the program.

Cyclone Sports Report: What does he like about your game?

Daniel Dingle: He likes my versatility in that I can play a lot of positions. He also likes my passing and feels that I'm the type of unselfish player that they are looking for.

Cyclone Sports Report: Will you be taking a visit to Iowa State?

Daniel Dingle: I plan to at some point but it will probably have to be after my season.

Cyclone Sports Report: What are you looking to improve on heading into your sophomore season?

Daniel Dingle: I really want to improve my ball skills and my athleticism. I also want to improve on the perimeter by working on my jump shot.

Cyclone Sports Report: Iowa State has had some great New York guards such as Curtis Stinson and Jamaal Tinsley play for them over the years. What are your thoughts on this new staff targeting New York players again?

Daniel Dingle: I think it's a good thing because they are a lot top recruits out here that want to get out of New York. One of my friends is Tavon Sledge who recently picked Iowa State and he told me it's a great atmosphere out there.

Cyclone Sports Report: What are your thoughts on when you might eventually want to make a final decision?

Daniel Dingle: I probably won't decide anything until my senior year. I need my body and my game to progress and I want to see if I grow some more in the next couple of years. I'll mostly be looking at what schools have to offer academically and what coaches can help me get to the next level.
