Iowa State adds MoKan Elite junior point guard
Fred Hoiberg and his Iowa State Cyclones staff added a solid floor leader for the future in MoKan Elite junior point, 6-1 Clay Custer from Overland Park, KS Blue Valley Northwest High on Monday.
We caught up with MoKan Elite Head Coach Rodney Perry and he confirmed that his point guard, 6-1 Clay Custer had made his college choice and was headed to Iowa State next year.
“That’s right, Clay has made his college choice and will head to Iowa State,’ Coach Perry told XoFan. “He really liked Coach Hoiberg and his staff.”
“He feels that Coach Hoiberg’s system is just the right one for his skills,” Coach Perry continued. “He also, felt that Coach (Hoiberg) is really genuine and that he can trust him in what he sees for Clay for the future.”
“It just boils down to Iowa State being the right fit for Clay, one that will allow him to do what he does best, and a place where he will be able to contribute right away!”
Custer is a smart point guard, with high basketball I.Q. who can handle rock, and bring it up versus pressure. He has good court vision and can deliver the ball off the dribble in transition. But, like former Iowa State guard Scott Christopherson, he can flat out stroke it from beyond the arc. In one game last spring in the EYBL he went four of five from beyond the arc in one half we watched. He will add instant firepower on the perimeter along with skills to run the show in the future in Ames. Like Christopherson he will thrive in the Cyclones system from day one!
He chose Iowa State over Penn State, Oklahoma State, South Carolina, and Oklahoma.
