Cyclone Men Ink Class of Three

AMES, Iowa--The Iowa State men's basketball team signed three players to letters of intent, ISU head coach Wayne Morgan announced today. Rahshon Clark (F, 6-6, 195, Fr.), Tasheed Carr (G, 6-5, 215, Fr.) and Aaron Agnew (C, 6-9, 330, Fr.) will begin their freshman seasons at ISU in the fall of 2004.

"At this point, my staff and I are extremely pleased with the young men we have had the opportunity to sign," Morgan said. "Being able to sign two wings with the departure of Marcus Jefferson at the end of the season gives us a great deal of relief at that position. There is no question that Aaron Agnew, with his size, power and strength, gives our program a different and unique dimension. Tasheed Carr is a highly skilled player who can play many positions. Rahshon Clark is absolutely one of the very best athletes in the country at his position. We feel all three young men have very bright futures and will ultimately make great contributions to our program."
