Texas point guard Darius McNeill picks Iowa State

Iowa State landed the player who could become their point guard of the future on Monday, as Westfield (TX) backcourt standout Darius McNeill announced his pledge after a weekend official visit.

The Cyclones lead guard slot is in great hands right now with All-American candidate Monte Morris running the show, but when Morris leaves after this season the position will be wide open for contenders.

In McNeill, Iowa State has a guard with size and speed. He reportedly gained a laundry list of scholarship offers, including from SMU, Texas Tech, LSU, Cincinnati and others before deciding on Iowa State.

TexasHoops.com considers McNeill the No. 17 overall prospect in the deep and talented state of Texas. He joins big man KeyShawn Feazell and wing Terrance Lewis as a trio of prospects currently committed to Iowa State. The Cyclones will still look to add another player or two as well.
