Iowa St. lands tal­ented trans­fer

Austin American-Statesman - - SPORTSBRIEFING -

Royce White needed a sec­ond chance, and Iowa State coach Fred Hoiberg needed tal­ent. White, a skilled fresh­man power for­ward, left Min­nesota un­der a cloud and agreed Mon­day to play for Iowa State. He’ll have to sit out a year, bar­ring an ap­peal to the NCAA. White was sus­pended at Min­nesota for sev­eral off-the-court in­ci­dents.

White is the fourth trans­fer Hoiberg has signed since he took over for Greg McDer­mott in April, join­ing guards Dar­ion “Jake” An­der­son (North­ern Illi­nois) and Chris Babb (Penn State), and for­ward An­thony Booker (South­ern Illi­nois). Three po­ten­tial starters trans­ferred out of the Cy­clones pro­gram.
