Sources: Bryce Dejean-Jones will visit ISU

Dejean-Jones left the Rebels in mid-March after a season in which he led the team in scoring (13.6 points per game) but also found himself in coach Dave Rice's doghouse and was suspended for the regular season finale

UNLV transfer Bryce Dejean-Jones will visit Iowa State on April 11, a source confirmed to AllCyclones.com.

The Ames Tribune and CBS Sports had the first report, via Twitter.

Dejean-Jones left the Rebels in mid-March after a season in which he led the team in scoring (13.6 points per game) but also found himself in coach Dave Rice's doghouse and was suspended for the regular season finale.

Iowa State head coach Fred Hoiberg has built the Cyclones' program up thanks in part to additions of star players via transfer, including Royce White and DeAndre Kane. Like Kane, Dejean-Jones would be immediately eligible, provided he stays on course to graduate from UNLV this spring.

A member of the 2010 recruiting class out of Taft High School in Los Angeles, the 6-foot-5 Dejean-Jones signed with Southern California, played in 18 games with the Trojans then transferred in the offseason. He sat out the requisite year at UNLV and played the last two.

Dejean-Jones was a four-star player in 2010 and listed by Scout.com as the No. 14 small forward.

Iowa State has a minimum of two available scholarships for the 2014-15 basketball season. A program source said no other transfer visits have been locked down at this time.
