Eikmeier is a 6'3, 155 pound guard
out of Fremont Bergan HS in
"Last year I was just trying to make my high school team better. I thought that this would be a couple of years down the road," Eikmeier told CN. "I always had goals back then to play division one basketball, the level or conference didn't really make a difference. I never saw myself committing this early."
Eikmeier took an unofficial visit
"It was great. The college atmosphere, the campus setting, everything was great. A place like that is definitely a place where I could see myself being happy," Eikmeier said. "After I got back from my visit I felt that it was a great fit for me. I didn't come back with any negatives after the visit. I felt like I couldn't pass up on that opportunity."
With two years of high school ball
yet to go, a lot of changes will occur before Eikmeier actually steps foot on
"I'm positive that I want to be a Cyclone. I don't see myself going back on it. It's a perfect fit and I'm going to work really hard to prepare myself to play in the Big 12," Eikmeier said.
While assistant coach Jeff Rutter was instrumental in the recruitment of Eikmeier, the guard says that Greg McDermott's system was one of the biggest factors to his commitment.
"That's one of the big factors as in why I committed early. I think that his system will be great for me. With the structure and all of the sets, I think it will be great," Eikmeier said.
Chances are, Eikmeier will be a
combo guard playing both the one and the two at
