Daniel Edozie – the recruit that committed to Minnesota earlier this fall – has now signed with Iowa State.

Edozie visited Minnesota in September and verbally committed shortly thereafter. But when the Gophers’ coaching staff went to watch the 6-8, 239-pound forward in person, at a tournament in Texas, they didn’t like what they saw and encouraged Edozie to de-commit, according to a team source and Edozie’s AAU coach Donley Minor.

The sophomore at Tyler Junior College (Texas) is averaging 10.1 points and 8.1 rebounds through 10 games this season.

Iowa State recruited Edozie some when he was still in high school, but the California native wanted to go to a junior college to develop. He visited Iowa State shortly after de-committing to Minnesota.

Iowa State big forward Anthony Booker will graduate after the season, and the Cyclones will need to replace his presence on the court.
